None of them is a good option IMO. Actually nobody around here suggest bluetooth headphones in general, but if you really want them, you should try getting a UE9000 refurb for less than 180$ right now.

Don't know but I have bad feelings with both... I also think you'll have a hard time finding anyone who has tried both..

I don't know anything about the Sennheisers but the Sony 10RBTs are a great set of budget BT cans. I'm not at the level of some of the people on this site but my personal feelings are they are comfortable, sound is great with a very wide soundstage and for "on the go" wireless I honestly haven't seen anything that can compare. Not that it's anything but if you look up the reviews on Amazon mine is the top review... it's long so I don't want to repost it again on these forums. It's in another thread discussing 1RBT vs 10RBT.

i also like Sony one more, but Sennheiser's quality is said to be better and they are on 250$ off i don't know weather they are over priced or they are actually cool. Still confused :(

Sometimes is more important the intended use, where are you planning to use them. how loud the environment is, music styles than how good or bad headphones are.

I haven't tried the MDR-10RBTs, but I've compared the MDR-1RBTs and the Sennheiser MM 450s. Don't get the Sennheisers. They sound pretty terrible and they're not very comfortable. Not sure why they've been recommended in the past... maybe I got a bad set, but I doubt it.

 

The MDR-1RBTs, on the other hand, are really, really good. Yes, even over Bluetooth. The convenience of moving around without wires cannot be overstated, and when I'm feeling paranoid about the sound quality, I can always plug in via AUX. Not sure how the 10RBTs sound in comparison, but I doubt the difference is particularly vast, and $150 sounds like a killer price.

Yup, the $150 for the MDR 10RBTs, and the sound they give up, has made me an addict!! :darthsmile:

 

I can't  take the dam things off.. Also, I just can't stop thinking that the MDR 1RBT are better, and hence they have the MK2s out there, I am searching. In the meantime, I am having big, big fun.. :darthsmile: 

 

BTW, I will/am become a multiple headphone owner..:darthsmile:

The Sennheisers are newer and supprt A2DP and APT-x but I've not tried them.

post #14 of 17

Actually, the Sennheiser MM 400/450-X has been around with basically the same hardware since at least 2009, if not earlier. And the same body was even used for a few non-MM headphones before that. It's old and it sounds old, even if they've added a few extra features over the years.

 

Apt-X is nice in theory, but in practice, the MDR-1RBT sounds way better even with its older codecs.

The Sony MDR 10RBT supports aptX & acc for what it's worth. smily_headphones1.gif
