Link? Or was this back on a previous page?

 

Edit: Nevermind. Found it. redface.gif

 

That FR is rather scary actually. Bass looks pretty wonky if those measurements hold true. frown.gif

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.

so which is which lol

So if going by the comments by these "professionals" the R1 would be horribly V-shaped and have mediocre soundstage. Yeah. Sony those kinds of videos only works for the masses. Even then that video miight imply that your new product would lack ZOMGBASSEZES.

But from a passthrough, they got the 3 models behind closed doors, there's a bunch of story about how they're not going for the Beats styling (I think), blah blah about iProduct thingies, blah blah angled drivers smth smth measurements. :|

I might go through it once again when I'm less busy.

Well I might just do it like I did with that Russian article on the XB600 and XB900; use as little Google as possible. Besides, this would be good practice since I'm going back to Moscow in less than a week.

just wondering if they can tune the headphone sound like in that video what kind of tuning would they make? the driver, housing or just the board inside?

The video looks cool, but doesn't really seem promising...it seemed as if the 'professionals' have heard better. 

Maybe for the price range of about $299, there are better cans out there...I am considering these MDR-R1 with

 

Sennheiser Momentum

 

Sennheiser Amperior

 

V-Moda M100

 

Phillips Fidelio L1

 

Lets see what happens...waiting for a head-fi review of these cans...

 

IMHO, Sony should probably get some head-fiers and Tyll review their products or include them in the design stage together with the other 'pros'...I think they carry more weight...

There was also a blog about the 1r stating its plastic but don't feel like searching.

Both XB900 and R1 looks interesting to me FR wise, the R1 might have ever so slightly too little bass for my basshead needs while XB900 might have ever so slightly too much, optimally it should be right in-between:

 

R1:

 

 

XB900:

 

 

With say +2dB more bass and slightly better extending bass the R1 graph looks quite perfect to me.

Where did you get the graphs? It's good to see what other headphones are measured in the same config, for comparisons' sake.

No problem if you're a Google Chrome user (asks conveniently if you want to translate every site which isn't your standard language) :P
