For people who do not own the 1R and may not be able to afford it, do you think the 10R is similar enough to meet their desires?

 

I feel like they were trying to emulate the 1r as much as possible, which I think they did a decent job at.  The street prices of both could sway my opinion one way or another as far as saying whether or not it would worth buying in lieu of the 1r.  At MSRP, $200 vs. $300, I think the 1r is worth the premium.  BTW, the 10r I have has a detachable cable.

Just received the MDR-10RNC. Will have the MDR-10r tomorrow. Can't wait to check both of them out.

Has anyone determined what has actually changed?  Is this just a result of the running manufacturing changes they made to the original?

better bass response I believe. I love my MDR-1R but they could do with a bit more bite in the low end

Agreed,but nothing in the product detail points to that.

Oh, just discovered this!  I think the bass is one the only problems with the 1r, and if the structural design isn't flawed... I guess I'll have to empty my wallet again!

Looks like same headphone as the orginal mdr-1r.  I wander what the difference is if any?  Different driver?  Different tuning?  Anyone have any ideas.  I was hoping there would have been more structural changes, oh well.

Well it's "MK 2", so there can only be improvements.   Probably not a different sound signature (it'll be a little different of course), just performance improvements like tighter bass, better bass extension, better high extension, and things of that nature.

The real reason for the MK2 is Furukawa Electric's discontinuation of PCOCC. As a result, the newer model has to use 'regular' OFC cabling instead. Sony has stated to both AV Watch and Phile-web that the sound should be similar to the original model.

So are there any ideas on the release date?

MDR-1r MK2 will have the same great sound of the original version.  MK2 will get a much requested 10ft cable in addition to the two cables the original had.
