Sony has new headphones, MDR-1R - Page 27

post #391 of 2680
Well it looks like my MDR-1R should be shipping on the 19th so I should have it by the end of next week at the latest whoohoo! smily_headphones1.gif

I have my SRH-1440 and possibly 940 to compare it against. I really hope I like it but did buy from Sony Canada direct so I have an easy return path at one of their local stores if unhappy. Have say my last 2 Sony purchases have been great though so am very hopeful the MDR1R will follow the same path.

I'm working on a review of the MDR-1R NC with comparisons with the Bose QC-15 as well as pairing them with Sony's PHA-1, Fostex HP_P1 and VentureCraft GoDAP 4.0 (Muse). I hope to have something by next week.

That should be an interesting review. I really want to find some headphones that cancel noise like the Bose but sound decent.
Look forward to hearing about your experience!

Let us know what you think, these are my number one interest at the moment (excluding jalapeno chilli kettle crisps - hot hot hot).

A comparison to the B&W P5 would be nice, since I know how they sound like smily_headphones1.gif

Just because how delicious they look i hope they sound great.

Sony Finland seems to be selling them directly for 279€, that's not bad at all. Got a see what the shops are asking from them when they really start going rounds. Though if they sound great i'm more than happy to put down that 279€.

What cables does the retail package come with? Is there an Android-compatible cable included?

2 cables, straight audio and a 3-button. Whether it works with Android I don't know since I don't own an Android phone.

The AKG 490 is pretty good. I am curious if th 1rnc has bettsr sound and comfort. The AKG beats most NC cans I have heard.

Ah, thanks for the answer.

I was surprised to read that these are not as bassy as intended. Thanks for the comparison, Anakchan!

This might actually be a good thing as I listen to a lot of rock/metal.

If someone could tell me how [the Gazette - Kago no Sanagi] sounds like with the MDR-1R, I would appreciate it! Is it completely clear? Can you follow all the bass kicks very easily? How do they cymbals sound?

Its between the 1R, M80/100 for me.

 

EDIT: I found out there is no good quality upload of this on youtube. There is a stupid shortened version and a reduced vocal one. So how about this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_qdlf-g9sk

The MDR-1 is a bright headphone for me, treble sounds a bit metallic.
