From the  Sony Asia website they stated that the air vents on the MK2 are enlarged which apparently improves bass response in comparison to the original. Other than some cable additions there's no other changes as far as I'm aware.

 

Here's the site: http://www.sony-asia.com/product/mdr-1rmk2

 

Also for any Australians on Headi fi, they're available to buy from th Sony Australia website

The sound quality needs to be improved and less mid centric.
The sony 1r I had did not have enough bass,either in amount or extension.
The driver was not impressive as I was able to make it pop it's socket on left side with a simple headphone amp and could not deliver loud bass.
I loved its soundstage but it was lackluster in retrospect to a jvcs500 and definitely needed improvement in its power handling.
I held onto it as long as I could because it was sooo beautiful and comfortable for me..
So I HOPE the new 1r mk2 really improved(!)...

Your impressions are identical to mine, except for the lack of bass quantity.

 

I don't expect much change to the sound signature.  I expect a small bass boost and tighter, more extended bass.  Thats really it.

I hope sony add more bass impact :P

post #54 of 331

You people are crazy!  Why not just get the ATH WS99, or M100, or something else with more bass lol? ZO use an EQ?

post #55 of 331

I have m-100 already but... MDR-1R design is also cool :D

 

That's why I want to get it heh heh.

So has anyone decided to buy the mk2 yet? I am hoping for a comparison to come up between the mk2 and original before I decide the jump the gun   :bigsmile_face:

"Engineered to perfection, Sony's High Definition driver units provide a wideband audio performance range from 4Hz to an impressive 80,000Hz. As a result, you'll enjoy powerful lows and extended ultra highs." LOL

 

I really hope the MK2 has more treble presence than the original, along with more sub bass. The originals were way too dark up top.
