Sony MDR-10RC ( Hi Res Audio ) Just arrived !!! - Page 3

post #31 of 34

Compared with my Audio Technica ATH-Pro500MK2 (38ohms), the MDR-10RC (40ohms) sounds quieter at the same volume (smartphone as source). But when coupled with a portable amplifier (Fiio E11), the MDR-10RC has very tight and defined bass, clear mids and highs. I guess its "anemic" performance with my smartphone is caused by being under-driven. The clamping force is softer (and more comfortable) compared to the Pro500MK2 (DJ headphones). I was surprised that the MDR-10RC sounded quite well with classical music, thinking that these headphones are meant for bass-heavy music.

Hi! I own a pair of Denon Ah-D1001 for home purpose, and a pair of Creative WP-450 for outdoor purpose, but i'm really tired of the sound of the Creative, they sound too muddy with the bass and mid bass. I really love my Denon, but they don't block any noise, so an outdoor use would destroy their beautif crispy sound. I was considering both the Sony MDR10RC and the Denon AHD321. I tried in a shop few times the sony, which the first time impressed me for the clarity, but the last time I tried them on, few days ago, I found the bass too present. Maybe that day I was too sensible to bass, but shat can you say about the bass or the Sony? Does it ever get too punchy? I would use them both with a DAC and an iPod Classic, almost all my music library is lossless, some of it is 24bit/96kHz, so the sound quality of the source is always the best, but i will mainly use them outside sith my iPod... Thanks smily_headphones1.gif

I've just bought yesterday one of this headphones at Bestbuy, I listed it at Bestbuy and Sony Store and yes, is an amazing soundstage that you can listen from it and great bass.



But I listen mine, and I can detect soundstage from them :(, How many hour I have to burn-it? to listen the same quality sound like the sotres.



Many Thanks to all!

Tried them with Hifiman 601 LE. Seems very good. 1R has some strange loud noise via 601LE, but they are more comfortable. I had had a very light seal on my head, but want to try them again and buy them.
Like them more than Sennheiser 25 and Monster Vektr, all Beats:)
Not a fan of on-ear/over-ear type of phones, but decided to change myself, and to be honest 10RC has some beautiful sound:)
