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.

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

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...

Everything I wanted

 

Full disclosure: I'm a Sony headphone fanboy. First impressions on the MDR-1RBT are great. Overall sound is good with big bass. Bluetooth pairing is fast, reliable, and has great range. They fit snugly on my head with a fair amount of inward pressure,...

Excellent headphones

 

These are excellent, they blew me away. They are the best BT headphones I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot. There is no difference between BT and the wired connection when it comes to quality.

BT, sound quality, clarity

Sony MDR-1RBT Bluetooth/NFC headphones

 

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

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

Expensive ; No active noise cancelling

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...
