Battery life is much longer than many comparable models at 30 hours, or 200 hours on standby.

It doesn't support active noise cancellation.

The Sony MDR-1RBT headphones deliver a rich listening experience you wouldn't expect from Bluetooth headphones.

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...

Sony MDR-1RBT review

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

Amazing

 

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...
