Sony MDR1R Headphones Technical Team Interview
Perfect mix of breakthrough audio and design
The MDR1R lets you experience sheer audio bliss with liquid crystal polymer film diaphragms, and impressive bass sounds with beat response control.
Ultra Wideband Audio Performance
Engineered to perfection, Sony's High Definition driver units provide a wideband audio performance range from 4Hz to an impressive 80Hz. As a result, you'll enjoy powerful lows and extended ultra highs.
More Comfortable Fit
Generic headphones offer an outward axis structure, inhibiting comfort and wearability. The MDR1R's unique inward axis structure ensures that the headphones conform to the shape of your head, for a snug fit.
The MDR1R is constructed with silicon rings for smooth, silent movement. This minimises mechanical rattling for pure, unadulterated sound.
Balanced And Accurate Sound
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 accurate sound reproduction.
Comfortable, Pressure-Relieving Cushions
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.
