At a glance

Proud to Listen. Proud to Wear.

You don't do compromise. Why? Because music is your life so only the finest sound and most comfortable fit will do. These headphones have been designed and tuned by people that love music and endorsed by people that make music. Meaning you get a sound experience that really is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.

Be Original

Take a bold step forward with wrap-around, acoustically sealed styling that looks and feels good. One seamless metal design with distinctive red ring. Truly iconic.

Go Free

Tap your smartphone or music player lightly on your headphones and you’re ready to enjoy all your music wirelessly with Bluetooth. Not a cable in sight.

Stay Silent

Keep your music pure with dual noise sensors and fully automatic noise cancelling. Banish barking dogs, screeching cars and idle chit-chat once and for all.

Built with Sound Precision in mind by Sony Engineers and SME music artists Katy B and Magnetic Man.

It’s more than a beat, a note, a perfect vocal. Music is about the whole experience brought together in its purest, most natural form. These headphones have been created by music-lovers and tuned by musicians to give you that in-the-club, at-the-concert feeling. Endorsed by world-renowned artists Katy B and Magnetic Man, they’re as serious about sound as you are with responsive liquid crystal polymer diaphragms, powerful HD drivers and Beat Response Control for thumping basslines. Go wireless with easy to connect Bluetooth on the MDR-1RBT or full digital noise cancelling on the MDR-1RNC. Iconic styling in seamless metal with a distinctive red ring means you’ll always wear them with pride.

Precision Sound

Combine a rigid yet responsive liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm with a specially engineered, ultra wideband HD driver and you get precise mid to high range sound and powerful lows. Beat Response Control featuring an enlarged air vent boosts bass while pressure-relieving cushions fit snugly around the ears, sealing in sound.

An S-Master amplifier and Digital Sound Enhancer on some models provides a natural sound with a spacious feel by restoring high frequencies and low amplitude audio lost through compression.

Listen the way the artist intended with HD driver and beat response control.

Wireless Listening

With Bluetooth and easy-to-connect NFC (Near Field Communication) on the MDR-1RBT, you can listen to music without a wire or cable in sight. Simply tap your smartphone or music player lightly against the headphones to automatically pair devices using Bluetooth v3.0. No need for menus, settings or complicated button sequences.

Noise Cancelling

It’s irritating when your favourite tracks are spoiled by ambient noise such as dogs barking, cars screeching or people chatting on the train. The MDR-1RNC includes full digital noise cancelling with dual noise sensors located inside and outside each headphone housing and noise cancelling software. Your music stays pure with dramatically reduced noise interference.

Iconic Design

These headphones look and feel as good as they sound. A seamless metal hanger runs from the headband down to the cable, forming a flush asymmetric curve that encloses the ear. A hole in the hanger allows for a larger speaker duct, improving sound quality, while the cable is angled to the front where you need it most. The distinctive red ring emphasises the premium quality of these headphones.
