I've been using these for ours (my wife and I each have a set of 10-RBTs) and they work great.

Bluecell EVA Protection Carrying Hard Case/Bag for Audio Technica Headphone + LCD Cleaner Stylus

They fit the 10-RBTs snugly, with no extra space, and have a small mesh section to hold the detachable headphone cable. It's almost as if they were made for each other.

Also they were very inexpensive.

Well, it was what my debit card counted.

Where did you get them for $103 to begin with?

From here. The special was only until the 30th December, and I'm getting that $199 headphone stand for free, too!

That's a really good deal

Hmm, what's this?

I finally got my free headphone stand!

Nothing special - just a piece of plywood that's kinda shaped like a head. It also kinda looks like the Sieveking Sound Omega Headphone Stand, but probably a bit smaller.

It says that it's made for the Sony MDR-10r. It's surprising that Sony decided not to make one for the 1r.

Of course, you can put whatever headphone you want on it.

I saw that Dick Smith deal but held off on it due to discovering the Philips SHL3300. Without demo'ing the MDR-10R I couldn't bring myself to buy them knowing I could buy two pairs of the Philips with the same money.

 

Even if the MDR-10R offered the same sound as the MDR-1R (mk1), I still prefer the sound of the Philips.

 

The design of the MDR-10R looks fantastic though, and the free headphone stand was a sweet bonus!

Anyone want to compare the 1R and 10R?

I didn't demo the 10r before buying them. I just knew it was a good deal, being on a slightly lower level than the 1r. Plus I had the gift card and it came with a free headphone stand, so I took a chance.

1r over the 10r:

 

Larger, sturdier build

Spacious sound

Sound has clearer and well defined mids and highs

Flatter response overall

Headphone jack is not "proprietary", can use many other cables

Silent silicone-lubricated hinges

 

10r over the 1r:

 

Smaller, slimmer profile

Tighter bass

Cheaper

Lighter

Headband extensions click in place better

 

Other differences:

When worn the right way around your neck, the 1r's earcups rotate outwards with the cushions facing upwards, while the 10r rotates inward to show off the nice design.

I'd say I was very lucky, because tech stuff is usually about 20% more expensive here than it is in the US.

Thanks. Tighter bass is... Interesting.

I just flim the 1r over to show off the design.
post #88 of 179

Yeah! Arrived 5 days earlier than expected! It's a perfect fit, too.

It seems to be made for them. Nice replacement for the very bad included case.

Do you think a pair of grados will fit inside that case?
