Sony has new headphones, MDR-1R - Page 147

post #2191 of 2679
Can someone share EQ settings with us?

I am using iTunes with Audirvana, have Audio Hijack to put in any VST Plugin.

What can you recommend to get the most out of the mdr 1r?

Hey I like em unequalized, but I do sometimes increase the highs/treble. It depends what you like.

Agreed. They sound great just the way they are.

I just wanna add that I just got my DT250 velour pads and put 'em on my MDR-1RBT and wow. Just wow. They just got so much comfortable. Also I feel that the bass is more "boomy" in a way, not by alot, but it's something that I really appreciate.

 

If you don't mind spending the extra bux for them (I had to put an extra $50 for the pads alone), then don't hesitate.

 

Also, for anyone else who got the Bluetooth version, buy a 3.5mm bluetooth transmitter, you can get one for under $20 from amazon. It's great, it lets you transmit sound from anything with a 3.5mm jack using the bluetooth transmitter. I'm using it with my PC, TV, laptop and mp3's like my clip+.

Nice find! Now if I could find velour pads for the standard 1R, that's be something I'd want to look into.

That's exactly what I experienced. I prefer the stock ones though because I'm not really into boomy bass. They also sounded slightly more laid back.

Sorry to bump this! Anyone with an MDR-1RBT willing to chime in? I'd love to know if it's a problem with the build or if I'm the odd one out. I can't stop hearing it now that I'm aware of it. Wonder if it's fixable...?

If you explain what you mean with "navigation rocker" I'll try and help :p

 

Edit: After some thinking, I'm now pretty sure that you mean the "previous song/play/pause/next song" rocker :P

Anyway, I've shaken my head with the headphones on to the point where I have a major headache. No rattle whatsoever.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Thank you for risking minor brain damage to help me out. smily_headphones1.gif

I guess I'll have to get an exchange, then. Too bad!

No worries :D

I feel you, my first pair broke after an hour. When playing music through bluetooth only the right speaker gave out any noise. I was so busy the next couple of weeks I actually had to use the wire when listening to music :( On the good side though, the new pair I got are much more comfortable with the stock pads, but they're clearly beaten by the velour pads ;)

For those MDR1r owners who use either iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch as a source, have you tried the Accudio app from GoldenEars?

I did some tweaks with the use of the custom EQ (Parametric) and would like to ask if you can try the following settings:

 

Volume Gain: Auto (-7dB)

 

Frequency          Gain          Bandwidth(Q)

20 Hz                +4 dB              1.95 Oct

30 Hz                +3 dB              1.10 Oct

40 Hz                +1 dB              0.80 Oct

95 Hz                -2 dB               0.50 Oct

450 Hz              +4 dB              0.90 Oct

6000 Hz            +7 dB              0.30 Oct

7000 Hz            +4 dB              0.20 Oct

9000 Hz             -8 dB              0.20 Oct

13000 Hz           +5dB              0.20 Oct

 

I'm not an expert on Mixing or Audio tech and would really appreciate it if someone competent in this subject matter can provide his input/impression.

So far, I'm quite happy with this setting but just wondering if there's more I can add/change to further improve the sound of the MDR1r to be more like the XBA 3/30 signature: a fun but well balanced sound.

 

Cheers!
