New drivers, looking good! The mdr-1r was a great pair of portable headphones. Nice and smooth sound signature.

I'm sure I read somewhere today that there is a 2r in the pipeline

I had been looking at the mdr 1r but saw a review that said that the mdr 10r might actually better. Since the 10r is 100$ cheaper than the 1r I am very excited to see what the 10r will be like. I like the design much better. I will probably await some more reviews before purchasing one though. Amazon says that they will be in stock on October 1st.

Does anyone know if the Bluetooth model will sound as good as the regular ones when connected?

 

I want the 10RBT because its wireless but im worried that it wont sound as good.

It looks like a lower end model than the 1R to me.  Maybe you guys should wait for the 2R instead

Why do you say its lower end?

Also are there rumors of a 2R?

because sony also has 1RMK2 series, which will be replacing the existing 1R series. If 10R is better, why would 1RMK2 be worse and more expensive?

Interesting, did not know about those, kinda annoying all these versions, just release a set and then release another set to replace them after a while.

Why all this 10r, 1rmk2 stuff?

Just bought these and they sound amazing!
Very balanced sound , rich and solid controlled bass, highs rolled off slightly not much at all hardly noticed with an untrained ear.
Then I added an amp to these babies and I couldn't be happier at this price point. much fuller and richer sound from portable devices. I use a iPhone 4 and the fiio e11 is perfect! These headphones have an impedance of 40 ohms and the take a lot out of portables sources such as phone and iPods. Even without the amp the sound was clean and detailed with a wide soundstage for a closed back headphone.

really?^ cause today i tried them out at best buy and they felt really cheap for 200 bucks, cant really comment on sound because its a noisy place 

 

sony should think of making metal headphones
