Sony has new headphones, MDR-1R - Page 145

post #2161 of 2707

does anybody knows if the bundled mdr-1r with the xperia z provides the normal cable without the microphone?

the cable with mic sounds better with the 1R anyways, more balanced sounding. ignore my post if youre not a "believer" :P

Can anyone else confirm this? I didn't notice a difference upon my first try. I've been using the normal cable ever since.

Hi all,

 

If compare mdr-1r to ZX700 which one give more 'heavier' bass impact ?

The bass hits very hard and tight now, not loose at all, more subbass and added clarity in mids.

I was using this Extreme Dynamat http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00020CATC/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's fully reversible in case you would want to go back to stock but IMO the improvement is totally worth the hassle.

 

i've already tried but with some fabric damping, you can see at the photo section :D

I saw that, could be wrong but I'd guess that fabric resonance dampening quality is nowhere as good as Dynamat.

the 1r gives heavier bass impact

 

-----------

 

i tried dynamat before i send my 1r back for RMA, although even the bass got more controlled, it is still too much for my tastes. and dynamat is almost irreversible because it is too messy to remove it. i think an open-cell foam is a better alternative although it didnt made any difference when i used that material haha..

 

putting some cotton material helps in reducing that resonance in the bass since they share similar sound with the esw9 with also has that resonance in that region. too much cotton material will make it sibilant though

I had no problem removing it, even from rough internals of wooden D5K cups, just peel what you can with the foil and then just use a piece of that peeled black rubber to tap over remaining stuff, it just sticks to it.

They share the similar problem with Denons and Dynamat worked wonder for them. Just make sure to massage it into cups really well so there are no air gaps left.

I have, but the general consensus back then was the opposite to his findings.

yup since i don't have any dynamat lying around so i just try with any material i can found LOL.

 

but i like the effect, everything seems tightened and clean than stock.

I wonder if I am the only one that thinks the bass is just right for quiet area and not enough for urban usage?

probably since bass isn't heard as well in noisy areas so I've heard. Why not just boost the bass enough while outside?

I'm not sure when AccessoryJack updates their weekly deals, but they have the 1R on sale this week for $230 (from ~$247 iirc), which isn't bad for anyone looking for the silver variant.

You're not the only one, although it wasn't a big gripe for me at the time I had them.
