I would wait until you hear the 1R and Z1000.
my friend has a z1000, and i will possibly buy the 1R so i can contribute to that. i also have a cd900st
dont care if it is made of plastic as long as the plastic is the same with z1000/cd900st which is very durable
Um. The Z1000 is made out of magnesium. It's quite different in terms of durability (though plastic Sony's aren't bad.)
Lol this is amusing. A video of the musicians telling the Sony engineer that it needs more low end, using some strange prototype MDR-1R and EQ box
Now it seems a little hard to believe that they could make any more changes to the sound considering they appear to be wearing final production headphones, so the video is strange marketing more than anything else.
it feels plastic to me :P maybe thats where all those squeaking noise is coming from when i move the cup joints. it needs a wd40!
anyways, if the R1 is made with plastic similar with cd900st, its all good
at the vid there is no mention of midrange, only bass and treble, so the R1 is very much possible has a v-shaped soundsig. also one of the guys said that it has a sharp treble and the other guy said that it needs more bottom end...
so which is which lol
I wouldn't really take any of it seriously. It's just a commercial, haha.
Either way - I'm interested in hearing what these sound like! There's a new trio of phones meant for portability and sound in a single package, so it'll be cool to see which one comes out on top.
Sony is manufacturing in China now that eases costs for them. Not sure about those exact headphones I will find out .I think those phones might be $ 800.00 if made in Japan Hon Hai Precision / Foxconn makes a lot of stuff for Sony , Apple, Hp., Microsoft and almost everybody else on the planet now now they are the worlds biggest ODM electronics manufacturer. They have metropolitan (large) city size factories (some that individually employ 400,000 people) over there on a scale unimaginable here in US .Closest thing we ever had to that was Ford motors old river rouge plant it was huge but small by comparison Foxconn is China's single largest exporter just to give you an idea of scale.They make the PS3 and XBox 360 also and probably ICBM electronics ,satellites and who who knows what else for the PRC. They made the HP computer I'm typing on right now. probably my headphones too. Senns and KRK's . They are building huge metropolitan cities there at an astounding rate granted some may be vacant but that won't always be the case .They need to keep building to keep up with the urbanization .
The urban population in China is projected to be nearly one billion people.in 2025 They are facing many of the problems western countries have faced but on a much larger scale.
wish them luck .
