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?

 

yo, you can find the MDR-1Rs at $194 at amazon and I've seen em go as low as $188 (you just have to be patient - I think they were at costcentral), which is basically the same price point as the 10r I believe.

Which is a good thing considering the 10R(lower-end model) has AptX.:)

I think everything is the same except the cable :L3000:

That's what it seems. Seems like a K550 vs K551 relationship.

oh great.... i just bought a mdr-1rbt for a nice price... was hoping that the aptx was the only change... seems the case so i'm happy (i don't have any aptx enabled devices so it would have been wasted money)...

 

now if only i knew how to enable aac on the pc.

 It is cheaper, $199 I believe.  I wasn't impressed by it.  I mean, it was alright, but definitely not an improvement to the 1R.

I think you are referring to the MDR-10RBT, which is actually $249.99.  They are talking about the MDR-1RBTMK2, which is $399.99.

Have just ordered myself MDR-1RMK2 headphones from Japan as a Christmas present along with a Sony Xperia Z 32GB tablet.  I will have to wait for the headphones until late December to early January.  Too long.

You sir, have more patience than I.:)

I would assume, other than the cable change, that Sony would have fixed the jack rattle issue that plagued the original....well I hope they do

I believe they addressed that in a running change on the original, along with the squeaky joints.

We need to find out if the driver has been changed.
Nothing will help if driver is not updated..
