Price: £239.99 via Amazon; at the time Sony was selling them for £400.

Ownership and usage time: 7 Months - Purchased January 2013, use daily.

Review Updated: 27.07.13

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Comfort: 10/10 (In Autumn / Winter), 1/10 (In Summer)

Initially, there was a slight discomfort as it took my ears couple of hours to get use to the real leather ear-pads (my ears had only been a custom to fake leather previously) but after an initial wearing in period, these are now not noticeable on my ears or head.

Nor does my ears get hot or sweaty, i've worn these for up to 8 hours at a time with no discomfort.

Real leather is simply the best material for the ears in my opinion and you have to pay a high price for headphones for them to feature it.

I wear glasses and these are super comfortable to wear with glasses.

Update - 27.07.13

I cannot use these headphones during the summer / hot days with temps above 24c, my ears just get too sweaty and uncomfortable, i'm sure this is the same with many over the ear headsets but it's still worth noting.

Audio Quality: 10/10

From the moment i played the first song i could immediately appreciate the amazing sound quality of these headphones.

I was delighted with the comfort and Bluetooth performance of my new headphones...until I tried a few videos. Everything I tried, on YouTube and BBC Iplayer, was out of sync, wonderful sound quality but lagging a fatal fraction of a second behind the action. I got the same result on my iPhone 6, iPad 2 and iPad Mini but I got a clue as to what was going on when, in desperation, I got out my old iPhone 3GS....perfectly synchronised !? Next step was to check Support on Sony UK's website and there, under Bluetooth Compatibility for this product it states that compatibility only goes as far as the iPhone 4 ! I'm still a bit baffled and annoyed by this as the compability issue only seemed to affect video syncing but, with regret, the headphones have been returned. Meanwhile I was so impressed by the audio performance and comfort of my headphones-for-a-day that I'm waiting for the release next month of the Sony MDR1 ABT ....which the Sony website assures me are fully compatible with the iPhone 6 !(?)

PS According to the Sony website the more recent MDR10 RBT are little different, only assuring compatibility as far as iPhone 5. No doubt a minor skirmish in the "phone wars" (Apple v Sony) and information is difficult to find ....highly irritating !

With the boom in smartphone production the need for quality Bluetooth headphones has increased dramatically. All the big producers of headphones have started to offer quality models in the upper price segment: Sony MDR1RBT, Philips Fidelio M1BTBL, AKG K845 to just name a few. So how does Sony's flagship Bluetooth model fare in this segment?

PROS
1. Sony MDR1RBT look splendid. They are also very light.
2. Bluetooth connectivity works like a charm. Once switched on the headphones will try and retry to connect until successful (most Bluetooth gear will only try once).
3. Sound quality is superior if you compare it to other Bluetooth models (for example: Philips SHB9100). Bass is very good (although not tight enough in my opinion).
4. Battery life is currently the best in the Bluetooth segment, and this is a very important consideration, if you are planning to spend time away from your home. You can literally use these for months without having to re-charge.
5. The position of the different control buttons is logical and operation is easy.
6. You can use these with your smartphone or bluetooth-enabled computer.

CONS
1. They look good, but actually everything is made of lightweight plastic, which means that you could easily scratch or break them--and for this kind of money Sony should have done better. Moreover, they get smeared easily, and you will soon find out that Sony has designed these only for customers with perfect hair and skin. This 'fragility' of construction and the materials used ultimately affects the real life usability of the product.
2. To make things worse - none of the 'leather' elements is replaceable. A simple cut to the headband or ear pads will ruin them forever.

I have had few other Bluetooth headphones, but this one is worth every penny compare to my previous mm450, the one thing i hated about my mm450 were the volume it only got a little bit better when using the Bluetooth options item self. although the quality were good but what is the point having excellent quality without being able to even hear the sounds, however, these are equally loud with and without the Bluetooth. the design are of the headphones are well made.loving the string of red. if you want good base excellent sound go for it. I feel like buying another one but am officially broke after buying this headphones.
