Engineered to perfection, Sony's High Definition driver units provide a wideband audio performance range from 4Hz to an impressive 80,000Hz. As a result, you'll enjoy powerful lows and extended ultra highs.
A breakthrough in audio technology, the liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm is designed to balance rigidity and high levels of internal loss, resulting in minimal vibrations. Your music comes through perfectly balanced, with the most accurate mid to high range sound reproduction.
At Sony, we believe that comfort is just as important as solid sound quality. That's why our pressure-relieving cushions are tailored for your ears. They not only provide a comfortable wrap-around feel, but also help to seal in music, preventing sound leakage.
Generic headphones offer an outward axis structure, inhibiting comfort and wearability. The MDR-1R MK2's unique inward axis structure ensures that the headphones conform to the shape of your head for a snug, stable fit. It is also constructed with silicon rings for smooth, silent movement, minimising mechanical rattling for pure, unadulterated sound.
Realise true bass potential with beat response control. Enlarged air vents at the back of driver units increase port efficiency to give you the heart-pumping bass you crave.
High-Resolution Audio is Sony's new standard for highest quality sound, which is even better than the sound you experience from listening to CDs. It also enhances the audio quality of conventional music sources such as compressed MP3s for the most detailed and immersive music enjoyment.
