Can't say that I am too fond of what looks like a fairly bulky design. But I haven't looked into those cans too much yet. I'll keep them in mind and read what you guys have to say about them. Quote: For me personally it's that I liked both the design and sound of the Sony MDR-1RBT, but had to sent them back due to constant skipping issues with Apple devices (known and confirmed by Sony themselves). If these are fixed with the new MDR-1ABT, then I might have finally found the pair I have been looking for.
