  1. Sony MDR-ZX750BN Wireless Bluetooth Headset - Black

    3.50 star(s)
    In the past, Sony's released ANC headphones, and Bluetooth headphones of a line of headphones (MDR-1R/10R).  However, this is the first Sony headphones that combines both ANC and Bluetooth in a single package for less than $200 in a single headphone.  And, to be frank, I don't know any headphones that's sub $200 that has all of that and more. So, with less than $200, you can get yourself one of those fabled all in one headphones that has all of the techie bulletpoints.  Bluetooth? Check.  Noise Cancelling? Check.  APTX? Check.  AAC support? Check.NFC...
  2. Sony MDR-1R

    If I can describe these in one sentence, it would be this: "They are the very portable edition of MDR-ZX700 with replaceable input cables."   There in lies the rub. They sound nigh incredibly close to the MDR-ZX700 in all regards.  The overall balanced approach that worked for MDR-ZX700, with all its plusses and minuses, are back in near perfect form in the MDR-1R.  In essence, the MDR-1R is the refined version of MDR-ZX700.  So much that I am tempted to leave my review on that.  For all intents and purposes, the 1R = ZX700 sonically.  If anything...
  3. Sony X Headphones MDR-X10

But unlike most celeb endorsed headphones, you can do single ear monitoring.  So for real DJs that spins the vinyl and must match up the beats, I think these will work quite well as its presentation emphasizes the...
  4. Sony Over-Ear Headphones - MDR-10R

    Oh wow, I actually have a set of headphones that I can review that was released quite recently.  And by those, they are the MDR-10R family.  Released in Sept. 2013 at MSRP of $200/$250/$300 ish for normal, Bluetooth, and Noise Cancelling Editions, they have gone down to more affordable and reasonable price of $100 (10R)/$150 (10RBT/RDC)/$200(RNC), pending your local retailer availability of course. Their heritage isn't tied to the nigh legendary MDR-R10 as its name would suggest. For the record, the Sony MDR-R10 is considered the magnum opus of...
