I have used so many headphones over the years that it's not easy for me to get too excited by yet another pair of them. These Sony MDR-1RBT headphones got me excited. Wow is an understatement.

When you pay a lot for something, it's nice to receive the item in packaging that is reflective of the quality of what you've purchased. These headphones are presented very elegantly in the box they come in. When you open the box the headphones are on display as if in an art gallery. They are nestled in a tufted black cloth that just exudes quality. On the other side of the opened box is a compartlment that you flip open and inside there is the very nice carry bag and cables that are included with this headphone. A USB to microUSB charging cable and 3.5mm male to male connecting cable (5') are included. The connecting cable has gold plated tips to ensure good conductivity.

Ahhh, the headphones. They are just so simply elegant. The headband and earcups are covered in a very supple and extremely soft material that looks convincingly like leather but I'm quite certain it's pleather. Comfortable is the key word here. The headphones themselves are very light in weight compared to others I've worn.

Style Name: MDR-1R Verified Purchase
Finally! Sony MDR1R Phones. The BEST headphones I have EVER heard!

I am well over 50, so I have followed a lot of inferior bread crumbs to reach this conclusion.
These phones are intended for LISTENING (NOT MONITORING) all genres of music. PERIOD.

Of course, considering the tight initial, off the shelf build quality of these phones, they sound pretty crappy right out of the box. Give them at least a few hours for break-in period

Current Personal Equipment:
Zune 120gb Player
Sony NWZ F806 Player
Sennheiser 380 headphones
Grado SR60 (not inferior SR60i)
*Sony MDR1R Phones

-unbelievable sound - check
-Beautifully rolled off highs, before any harshness can be introduced - check
-Wonderfully fat midrange - check
-Deep, (tight), moving, bass without muddiness - check
-Hearing new sounds and nuances in previously played tracks - check
-All the above even at low volumes - check
-No need for amplifiers or other peripheral equipment - check
-Sounds equally good when listened to from MP3 player, laptop, desktop, amplified sound system - check
-Really cool, high tech appearance with great engineering and build quality - check

-Reveals the shortcomings of the Sony NWZ F806 Player's sound chip (YES) - check
-Reveals the shortcomings of the Sennheiser 380 headphones - check
-Better, (unbelievable), better than my beloved vintage Grado SR60's - check

One of the most revealing tracks in my collection (believe me, they ALL sound GREAT!):
Donna Summer's "Love to Love You Baby" (Album: "The Journey") 16:45 min-256kbps
(full orchestra after the bass solo, high flute, horns, violas, strings, etc).

Style Name: MDR-1RNC
Just received today my Sony MDR-1RNC headphones. A little about me so you know my biases. I am unapologetically an audiophile. Will spend more for the fractional improvement. I strive for neutral uncolored, but musical, reproduction of the music. I don't like tubby bass. I don't like shrill or edgy highs. I strive for balance. When it comes to headphones I am utterly unforgiving with what I expect sound-wise and comfort wise. But I am not a snob....The best buy ever for any headphone is the the Koss KSC-35. I own about 10 of these. Use them for working out, etc. .... great on the go set of cans for plugging into a nano or iPhone. At home I listen through VAC tubes and Magico speakers, and still spin vinyl on a Clearaudio Innovation table.

I have on my biz travels listened over the past few years to about 20 different "travel friendly" "noise canceling" headphones. I bought the PSB m4u headphones, and while they sounded great....it was like wearing a submarine on my head. None has reached the level of enjoyment and accuracy and isolation of my Etymotic ER4p headphones....until today. Enough about me.

When I put the Sony cans on today, before turning them on or plugging them in, I thought immediately, "wow, these feel good. they are really comfortable. thank you sony for giving a rip about something feeling really really nice around my skull."

Then I plugged them into my iPhone and played some Rhapsody songs....HORRIBLE. First thought...I'm sending these back. Then intuitively without reading the instructions, I reached for where I would want and expect an on-off switch to be. Viola...the power turned on (thank you sony engineers for ergonomic genius...from on/off switch, to simple but perfect instruction manual).
