5.0 out of 5 stars Great with digital devices, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony MDR1R Prestige Headphones - Silver (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Sony's MDR-1R headphones have been around for well over a year now and they are designed for use with digital devices like smart-phones and MP3 players - and for this purpose they sound great! They are not really intended for studio reference or audiophile use though, as they are not completely neutral. I listen with headphones quite often and this Sony model is my current favourite.

Sony have launched a newer model - the MDR-10R - which currently sells for less, even the model including Bluetooth is much cheaper at the time of this review. Those looking for headphones to use on the go, or those looking for a more powerful bass response, my find the newer model suits them better. I use both, and I find the MDR-1R is my favourite for using at home and the MDR-10RBT is great when out-and-about as the Bluetooth is a really useful feature, and the extra bass helps block external noise.
