I think we need to stop calling this the new flagship. There is a nee MDR1R MK2 coming out that will succeed the original MDR1R. The 10R appears to be step down as it does not have removable cables etc.

As someone in the US, what do you guys recommend?

1R?
10R?
1RBT
10RBT?
MK2?
MK2BT?

I kinda wanted the 10RBT when they release as they are smaller and only $250 but I am now worried that the SQ will not be as good as the 1 and mk2 series. Also can anyone confirm or deny that the bluetooth versions dont sound as good as the regular version?

All I want is good clear sound with good bass and soundstage, should I just stick with my iems?

"10R" is just too close to "R10" for me... :ph34r:

I am happy to report that these are nicely done.  Not bassy like the Sennheiser on-ear.  The MDR-10r reminds me of the much loved Sony MDR-v600 which I have three pairs of as spares.  The new 10r is crazy comfy.  The 10rNC is more forward sounding than the 10r.  These are good headphones.

Very cool, is the bass and soundstage bigger than the xba series iems? Also do you think there would be loss in quality in the BT version?

Oh! At first when I saw that the title said MDR 10R, I thought it was a typo, but it's actually the successor to the 1r!  They look even better than the 1r (as if that was even possible!!):)
