Last year I picked up and reviewed the MDR-1RBT headphones from Sony, this year they released a "budget" model, the MDR-10RBT and will also be releasing the MDR-1RBTmk2; which will have the same design as the 1RBT.

Since one of the issues I had previously was the quality and build of the 1RBT to begin with, the 10RBT has corrected everything I ever disliked about the "flagship" model of the line. The thinner headband (which is metal under the cushion) and more sleek lines are much appreciated for portable use. They picked up a few of the better design cues from the Parrot Zik headphones that were "designed by Stark"; mixing it with the better looking parts of the 1R line, for just a damn good looking pair of headphones. These headphones also retail for $150 less than the 1RBTs and weigh a bit less. Some may feel that they used cheaper materials in the 10RBT but I certainly do not feel that way. The materials are on par, with the hinge of the ear cups having a wider turning radius in both directions than ANY of the Sony headphones I've used, besides the "DJ" models that turn all the way around. The ear cups themselves seem to be better stitched and look less "home sewn". The fit of the headphone is pretty loose, but not as loose as the 1RBTs. I prefer that they are a little more snug so I can get a good seal on my head to prevent the headphones from moving. I also have a pretty big head, though not enormous. I am comfortable with the adjustment down about 1 or 2 notches down on each side.

Sound quality is on-par with the 1RBT, I think these are slightly less bass-y and a tinge muddier on the low end but over the first 3 hours I used the 10RBTs they progressively got better and more sounded clear. So a burn-in is definitely necessary on these headphones.

I purchased these when I found them on sale for one twenty five plus tax here in Canada.

I'm not sure why these aren't more popular, because after I burned them in, holy cow do they sound good.

I was at a best buy that had these on display and I figured I would give them a shot.

--- Comfort ---
5/5 - I normally hate over-the-ear headphones, mainly because my ears and head are so darned big. I was pleasantly surprised when I put these on and they didn't squeeze my head. They fit over my ears and the ear muffs are really comfortable to wear. I wore this for about 4 hours straight walking through a mall and it didn't bother me one bit.

--- Sound ---
5/5 - I'll admit, these are my first bluetooth headphones, so I don't know what's supposed to sound good and bad. I'm comparing these to buds and the Bose AE2 bluetooth version that I sampled at the store.

Keep in mind, there is, as the top reviewer stated, a burn in period. Most headphones are like this, especially Cans like these.

The Bose definitely had more bass at the time I tested it. The Sony bass is more controlled and therefore not as "punchy" as one would describe it, but it is there and I can hear it just fine, especially now that I've burned these in. and definitely not Beats by Dre level. The mids and highs are very, very clear, more clear than the Bose ones I tested.

--- Design ---
4.5/5 - I really like the design of these headphones. The cups fold in so they fit into the carrying case. It looks sleek. The buttons are well placed and not annoying at all.

I am rewriting my review because I jumped the gun and wrote a review after listening to these straight out of the box. The bass was very heavy and too boomy, and there were no mids at all, so voices sounded like they were in a bucket, half way across the room, and the highs sounded like they were muffled with a blanket. Being somewhat too eager to write a review, I got on Amazon and applauded these headphones without really analyzing them enough.

After writing my review I started noticing they didn't sound that good so I edited my review mentioning the boomy bass. I never noticed the other review saying that you need to burn these in! Stupid me!

Somewhere along the way I accidentally burned these in, after playing them at stratospheric volume levels. I woke up the next morning after putting these headphones through a very aggressive listening session at full volume. I thought I had broke something because they suddenly sounded light, the boomy bass didn't seem to be there. Then I played more music and suddenly realized that I was simply hearing MIDS, which I couldn't hear before. During the last few hours of high volume listening the headphones broke in (burned in).

I just purchased some KRK-6400 headphones which have very neutral sounding mids, and I have tested them against these Sony's.
