Product information

Sony’s MDR-1R headphones feature input from the artists themselves for unrivalled playback quality. HD driver units deliver wide band response, earcup cushions seal sound and clever design eliminates creaks.

More range
Thumping subs. Crystal-clear mids. Uplifting treble. Hear everything in the mix with our specially engineered High Definition driver unit. Its rigid, responsive diaphragm delivers incredible sound quality across the board.

Professional tuning
Singer songwriter Katy B and dubstep supergroup Magnetic Man joined evaluation sessions with chief mastering engineer Naweed Ahmed of Whitfield mastering. They identified the critical 30-40Hz sub-bass region that’s a signature of today’s music styles, leading to an enhanced Beat Response Control.

Comfortable fit

Q & As

Sony MDR-1R Prestige Full-Size Headphones with Mic/Remote 5 5 1 1
Sheer quality I took delivery of these today (18/7) - 3 days after ordering. My first impression was, how beautiful these 'phones looked. Great packaging in a 'wedding type' presentation box. Typically Sony understatement - nothing too flashy but boy do they deliver. Just been listening to Mamas and Papas 'California Dreaming' and it feels like Mama Cass is in the room with me. There are vocals on this track that I have not heard before. I am running my iPhone through a Sony PHA 2 headphone amp which adds quality to the signal reaching the h'phones. IMO worth every penny. 18 July 2014
