So: the NFC model does indeed have a different, larger 50mm driver. Although Sony's frequency response figures are always insane, its usually their shorthand way of comparing sound quality, and its interesting that they do state that the sound quality does decrease when using the bluetooth connection on the MDR-1RBT. 

 

Its weird that they don't also give two different frequency response figures for the flagship 1RNC, and also give two impedance figures. (I'm guessing that turning on the noise cancelling also engages the in-built amp?)

Gotta love Sony's frequency response claims.

 

Waiting for their 0Hz - 300,000Hz flagship...

They are all detachable so you can switch between the iPhone mic cable or not I believe.

Is brown good? Or bad? (for you...)

post #38 of 2685

for me the brown look really luxurious while the black look really classic studio reference headphone, both color are good and match the design i say.

I really feel this would be much better then the new Denon D400 which i was going to get, but didn't due to reviews.

Lets see...

If you look at every flagship headphone that Sony has designed, you'll notice that they all share a pretty big deficiency in actual measured bass performance. The XB line is their super bassy series, I think this is probably going to be more in line with their flagships; just tweaked for a reasonable amount of bass.

those BA iems have am "extra bass" branding as well, but they really didnt sound bassy for me
