I think their main strength is IEMs. Headphones are definitely a bit hit and miss.post #154 of 27049/6/12 at 12:59am
I share the same sentiments. Every time they announce something new, i get all hyped up, only to be let down again and again, but i tell myself, its okay, lets see how they improve, but there's only so many times one can give chances.
I hope to see them come back with the energy and innovation they had 10, 15 years ago.post #155 of 27049/6/12 at 6:58pmpost #156 of 27049/9/12 at 3:01pmpost #157 of 27049/9/12 at 4:39pm
Looks like he beat Jude to the punch on that one.Quote:Originally Posted by BRSxIgnition
Seems like the MDR-1R is ready for the battle of the new portable headphones.
Just to let you all know (again) - the entire SONY MDR-1R Series is in the Closed Mid-Fi Portable Battle 2012.
Drop by with your thoughts - and provide reviews once you get yours!
I'm sorry, I didn't quite catch that...
Oh BTW, maybe the MDR-1R should be in some kind of closed, mid-fi portable battle thing. Yeah, I know it sounds crazy, but maybe someone can look into it. Just a thought...post #159 of 27049/13/12 at 8:44ampost #160 of 27049/14/12 at 4:29amDigging into the differences of the phones in this range, I noticed some numbers in http://ipaper.ipapercms.dk/Sonyshop/DK/MDR1R/
MDR-1R: 1500 mW capacity, 40 mm HD driver unit, 4-80 000 Hz, 105 db/mW, 48 Ohm
MDR-1RNC, 100mW capacity, 50 mm driver unit, 5-24 000 Hz, 103 db/mW, 51 Ohm
MDR-1RBT seem to share pretty much the same properties as the MDR-1R. Anyone mind explaining if this means that the NC phones are less capable? Might consider picking up the BT phones instead, though I guess I would miss the NC on buses and trains.

Since when did bigger driver mean bigger bass? Let's see now XB1000 - 70mm, XB700, 50mm, XB500 - 40mm and in bass they go in the order big, bigger, biggest. In headphone world a 40mm driver can already output 15dB bass boosts, which is probably not even the physical driver limit but the limit at which the sound engineers feels "yea no use to go bigger than this even if geared towards bassheads".
