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 not an audiophile by any stretch. I have several sets of headphones and my favorite are the Sony MDR 7506 and V-Moda. I have been using a set of JVC which according to the reviews, are comparable to the Bose Quiet Comfort. What attracted me to these Sony headphones was the claim of 99.4% ambient noise reduction. Moreover, I like the single detachable cord plus the AAA battery. This eliminates the headphones going dead on a long flight or having forgotten to charge them prior to departure. Moreover, even if you don't have a AAA battery available you can still use them. In short they are everything I have ever wanted in a set of headphones plus they sound great! They are as every bit as crisp as the MDR 7506 and extremely comfortable. I bought them at Costco for $179.00 plus tax. A real steal!

Style Name: Hi-ResColor Name: Black
I really like these. First, they are extremely comfortable. I wore them yesterday for 4 hours reading, and no fatigue at all. I'm usually sensitive to such things, so that impressed me. Also, the sound clarity is amazing. I am no audiophile, but I hear things in songs that I don't usually hear. Listening to Diamond's Holly Holy was something else. And the Rolling Stones You Can't Always Get What You Want is truly spectacular. There are, however, two downsides that should give you caution. First, the drivers aren't terribly efficient. This means that if you're using a smartphone, it might not be quite loud enough for you. I listen to music relatively loudly, but even when I have the volume turned all the way up it's not always quite loud enough. This is especially the case on the subway, for instance. It works well enough, but it should be better. I shouldn't have to have the volume all the way up during my commute. Second, despite Sony's claims about bass, there isn't much bass. Bassheads definitely will hate these. But even for a lot of popular music, these don't quite work. The problem is that bass is just too subtle and underwhelming, and sometimes makes songs sound odd because of the lack of bass. So just keep in mind that these really don't do the best job with bass. I mostly listen to rap music and these remain tolerable= and I enjoy them. But for a lot of people than want even minimal to moderate thump, these aren't those cans. I am keeping these Sonys because there just ins't much on the market that's as good. And since I spend so much time commuting, the comfort of these win out in the end. They really are delightful on the noggin. Here are all the other headphones I have tried: Beats are overpriced crap.Read more ›
