Sony MDR-1AM2 Hi-Res Headphones : Balanced connection.

These headphones are the by far the best headphones i have ever put on my head. Very high quality build and the sound quality is exceptional. Do not hesitate to purchase these, you will not be disappointed.

A little bit preesing my ear but it’s fine, i guess because i have a big head.

I also like the single cord coming out of the left hand side. These are the most expensive headphones i have bought and while i know you can shop around and get more or better for the same (or less) outlay, these will do for me. They are sony, so reliable and they do the job.

Was a present for my husband and he was delighted.

The balanced connection allows me to alter the left/right volume control on my sony walkman.

I’ve owned previously ath m50x, bowers and wilkins px, sennheiser momentums and others and these are quite simply the best i have ever used. Comfortable, light weight and the best sound i’ve heard at this price.

Made from quality materials, these are incredibly light in weight but the sound is anything but (light weight)i listen via my mobile to spotify 60s and 70s soul and funk (think motown, earth wind & fire etc) and 70s reggae and the same stuff on my roksan kandy separates. Bass is very good, horns bright and percussion crisp whilst voices are emotional and have great depth. Timing and separation of instruments is very good though obviously this is a lot dependant on the quality of the material. The fit is good and the cans are comfortable to wear for quite long periods of time (2-3 hours lately) and remain stable when worn outside. 100% recommend you audition these .

These are really special, very light, sound quality is amazing , highly recommended.

FEATURES

Enjoy music as the artist intended with High-Resolution Audio

Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By digitally capturing music at a higher rate than CD, High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording and enjoy your music just as the artist intended.

Aluminium-coated LCP diaphragm for more precision

An aluminium-coated, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm gives a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range than even a conventional LCP driver. High frequencies uniquely contained in High-Resolution Audio especially benefit from the added rigidity, and energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform, ensuring a true and authentic performance.

Wide frequency response for a full range of sound

The wide-band frequency range – spanning 3Hz to 100kHz – is designed for a broad variety of music styles. Such a wide frequency response ensures even advanced audio formats, which require a much larger spectrum, can be accurately reproduced without hard limits or frequency roll-off, giving your music more life and realism.

Patterned grill for smooth ultra-highs

Grills help to protect the precision headphone diaphragm and are designed specifically for passing ultra-high frequencies without introducing ‘colour’ to the sound. The grill pattern is based on a Fibonacci sequence to ensure no frequency is boosted or cut. The result is a smooth, refined sound right across the frequency range.

Silver-coated oxygen-free copper

The MDR-1AM2 uses silver-coated oxygen-free copper cables, designed to minimise resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail and smoother treble sounds.

Supplied balanced-connection headphone cable

A 4.4Φ balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals completely, unlike conventional headphone cables which share a ground wire. This minimises signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration, so you hear less distortion and cross-talk.

Pressure-relieving earpads for total comfort

Soft, synthetic leather earpads with pressure-relieving cushions have been designed to rise and shape around your ears, ensuring a comfortable fit. Smooth materials and seamless stitching provide comfort and durability for long hours of listening.

Heavyweight bass with Beat Response Control

Built-in Beat Response Control improves the transient characteristics in bass sound and delivers accurate rhythm.

Enfolding closed-back design seals in sound

The closed-back, enfolding design wraps around the ear, helping to seal in music and keep distractions out. Meticulously crafted acoustics ensure sound is exclusively directed towards your ears, so you hear even the subtlest of sounds. You’ll also feel every beat, as the closed-back design helps to maximise the bass signatures in your music.

Swivel design makes travel easy

Take these headphones with you anywhere. A swivel design makes them easy to store on the go. The earcups swivel flat for easy packing in a bag or slipping into the supplied pouch.

Super lightweight design for hours of comfort

The MDR-1AM2’s super lightweight design relieves pressure on your ears so you can listen for hours in comfort.
