Sony MDR-1RBT

 

Although the Sony MDR-1RBT headphones are pricey, they are well worth it. You will find that the headphones exhibit amazing audio whether you are listening to music or watching a movie. These headphones have a beautiful design and are built to last. If...

The over-the-ear design and soft leather earpads work with active noise-cancelling features to immerse you in music

The insides of the earcups can press on bigger ears and cause some pain

These headphones get our full recommendation. They're stylish and they play music the way it was meant to be heard.

Cut the cord - Sony’s NFC-enabled Bluetooth headphones are ultra-convenient

 

Sony's MDR-1RBT headphones sound equally good whether you're listening wired or wirelessly. Hooking up with Bluetooth does give a bit of a bump to bass and treble, too, as well as the convenience of no cords. The convenience of NFC - if you've got a...

Excellent wireless and wired sound quality, Convenient via Bluetooth and NFC, Rechargeable, works in passive mode

Expensive, No active noise cancelling

Sony MDR-1RBT review: Hands-on

 

The Sony MDR-1RBT forms one third of the brand's new MDR-1 range of headphones and marks Sony's first step into the premium cans arena

Our first impressions of the Sony MDR-1RBTs (as well as its MDR-1 and MDR-1R siblings) were certainly good. We were impressed by the overall sound quality and well as the overall look and the swift and reliable Bluetooth pairing. We'll bring you more...

Sony MDR-1RBT review

 

This review assumes you know what NFC is, and assumes that you've got a NFC-enabled mobile phone to make best use of the MDR-1RBT with. If you're not sure what it is or if you've got it, read this primer on Wikipedia. See all audio reviews.

Sony MDR-1RBT Mk2 Headphones: Australian Review

 

Sometimes a piece of technology comes along that just hits all its marks perfectly. Excellent and thoughtful design, high quality components and some smartly integrated features combine to make something that just feels special. Sony's updated MDR-1RBT...

Amazing build quality and design ; Excellent sound quality ; Simple, versatile, powerful Bluetooth and NFC

Expensive ; No noise cancelling ; Minor NFC issues

Not having noise cancelling, the Sony MDR-1RBT Mk2 is not the perfect traveller’s headphone, in my opinion. I have five international flights to catch in the next fortnight, and while I will be bringing the MDR-1RBT Mk2 along for the journey with me,...

Superb Sound, Function, & Quality - Outstanding!

 

I honestly was skeptical as I fully expected this purchase to be a return. I just wanted to compare to my Beats Studio and Bose QC15. WOW was I surprised!

Sound Space is superb, well balanced. Excellent Controls

Soft Case only .. Why

I purchase these wireless Blue Tooth head phones so I could be free from wires while playing drums. I have always been a loyal Sony customer with many other Sony ES audio components. Well, Sony hit it out of the park with the design, comfort, and audio...
