Quoting Jude from his Head-Fi Holiday gift guide: "As far as sub-$500 closed headphones go today, I can't think of another I'd pick over the MDR-1R for long-term sit-down listening sessions, across a wide variance in recording quality, and a wide variety of musical genres."

I want to get a pair of silver MDR-1R for the looks alone. So tempted. I could care less about sound as long as they sound good enough out of my iPod touch for portable use.

OP -

 

All of the major market sub $500 headphones will play without an amp

 

Some headphones will sound better without an amp than

others will sound with an amp simply due to the difference in quality of the headphones -

For example,. Sennheiser 650's will sound better without an amp than 'xyz' headphones

(usually overpriced and overhyped) will sound with an amp.

 

 

I recommend turning your question around to:

What headphones sub $500. really need an amp?

Again, as an example - I wouldn't recommend using Beyer DT 880's or

AKG 701's without an amp, especially if they're being driven from a portable music player.

What sort of music is the mdr1r good for?

I love the 1Rs for just about any genre. I always look for good all-rounder cans and these fit the bill more than others that I've had.
