Pros: Some nice deep bass notes. Big soundstage

Cons: Audio Technica M50s

No need to elaborate on what has already been said about these but I summarise my time with the Sony MDR 1Rs:

 

Pros:

-Nice build quality

-Removable cable

-Deep bass (not too deep)

-Big soundstage

-Can be great for some electronic music

 

Cons:

-Recessed mids

-Lack the resolution you would expect for the price

-Bass can feel out of control at times

-Not enough *POW*

-Can feel sluggish

-At the price (and way below) there are much better all round and bass-centric alternatives

 

Good attempt but Sony must try harder. Not only are there great alternatives, like the Audio Technica M50s, there are many new players on the market and at this price point there is no room for 'average' sounding headphones.
