Sony MDR-Z1000

 

The Sony MDR-Z1000s ($549 MSRP) are a mid-range set of over-ears that, while extremely durable, have some glaring flaws in their sound performance compared with their competition. They are definitely well-suited to perform as a set of headphones that...

Not bad, but we’d wait on picking them up until they came down in price.

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Ignoring the price, the Sony MDR-Z1000s are a durable set of over-ears that will probably have longevity on their side over other headphones, but you certainly pay for that. It may not be as hard to swallow that high price tag if the MDR-Z1000s were...

Sony MDR-Z1000

 

When amped, from a full sized setup, these have a great sound quality (tonality) ; Not bass monsters (some may class this as a negative, however, for anyone striving for a 'pure', 'accurate' sound, these are much more rewarding than the boom-boom-boom...
