For the MDR-1R, I was mainly impressed w/ the comfort. I haven't had another pair of portable over-ear headphones as comfy as those.

Yes the comfort is good , in terms of comfort all the Sony headphones I have owned (V6,zx700 and ma900s) excel , the thing about the 1r is their Sibilance , now I can't talk to much as  I didn't spend a lot of time but ....... I can vouch the HM5s best it , yes in comfort too IMO

i love all classical instruments . in my humble opinion there is more music in a single beethoven piano / violin / cello composition than all popular music written since 1956 to the present combined .
