So good i bought a second pair.

The best set of headphones i have ever bought. The best set of headphones i have ever bought, the sound quality is incredible and the bass especially is a major selling point. They are extremely comfortable even straight out of the box with hours of usage. The packaging it comes in is great with a professional box and carry case and a choice of two cables. The only fault i can see with the product is the cable connecting into the headphones sometimes comes a bit loose, but no issues other than that. Overall this product is highly recommendable and great value for money versus its other competitors.

I am listening to george benson on my sony hi res and the sound quality is phenomenal. And the track isn’t even a high res file. Absolutely worth every penny.

Sony MDR-1AS Prestige Overhead Headphones – Silver : I have had this headphones since saturday 29th november i ordered them using amazons evening delivery via city sprint they should of arrived on that evening but instead due to the courier giving the delivery driver the items late they were not delivered on the friday evening. And therefore never arrived until the following saturday morning. Amazon refunded the delivery in fullanyways on to the headphones i can’t tell you how brilliant these are. I’m using them for listening to music on the move via my sony nwz-a15 and fiio e18 portable headphone amp for music on the move. All my music is ripped in cd quality 16 bit flac files a must or higher for these cans. They will show up poor quality compressed music.The instruments are clear defined and seperated. Bass is nice and not too overpowering a big improvement again over the mdr-1rmy home setup is via my sky+ box/blu ray player/ps3 and i’m using a topping tp21 desktop amplifier. From both outputs the sound these produce is brilliant all audio is clear and separated i’m also hearing extra detail in my fav shows that i’ve not heard beforethese are great headphones and yes they are a major improvement over the mdr-1r of which i had two pairs both were returned due to the cable rattling which sony have fixed with these. Only thing to note about the cable is sony have fitted a new 4 tier connector on the headphone jack end which means you cannot use a standard 3. 5mm extension cable if you feel the cable is not long enough. The sound is also so different on these to the mdr-1r.

Prepare to smile when you listen to these fanatastic headphones. I have sennheiser momentum 1. 0 over-ear and philips fidelio m2 headphones but the sony mdr-1a headphones sound better and are much more comfortable. Whatever i play just puts a smile on my face and yes, i’m hearing things on tracks that i haven’t heard before in all music genres and, i’ve not even played them in yet. They sound so right with the dac in my asus maximus viii motherboard running sonic studio. My wife hates headphones but has no problems wearing these. I had bought them with the intention of using them in the gym, but they are way too good for that.

Excellent sound and comfort. . Slghtly warm sound which i find less fatieging easily better than akg k550 which sounded very boring and quiet.

As comfortable as they are good to listen to. As comfortable as they are good to listen to. The mdr-1as have a great balance of bass and treble, unlike usual headphones that seem to emphasise bass a little too much. They also come with a handy carry case and extra cable with a built in mic for phone calls.

Incredibly good sound, no comparison to cheaper offerings. . I bought these headphones as a treat to myself after mainly using cheaper in-ears for many years. I was completely blown away but what these headphones have to offer, so much so they have traveled thousands of miles with me on daily commutes and spent countless hours on my ears at work while busy. Whilst i was used to good bass from my previous offerings, i had never experienced the same kind of clarity across all ranges that these headphones provide. Everything sounds great, and hi-definition audio through spotify sounds gorgeous, bringing out details in songs i had never heard before. They are incredibly comfy, and sturdy too – they’ve been chucked in my bag and subjected to so much rough handling, only recently have they started to show signs of wear and tear. I had some issues with one of the provided cables a few months into my purchase, but sony support were incredibly helpful, and shipped a replacement cable within a week for free without requiring me to ship the broken one – excellent support from the guys there. No other issues since thenhonestly, i don’t feel like i’ll be needing to replace these anytime soon. Highly recommended if you’re moving away from cheaper sets to something a fair bit nicer. Well worth the premium, and i’ll be sad when i finally do have to find a successor to them.

Wearing them is like riding mercedes – comfort 3. Okay, this review is first impression as product must pass time test in order to comment on reliability. As my jabra revo lasted 20 days and then done, returned, god these. Wearing them is like riding mercedes – comfort3. Sound quality – just wow, every instrument is clear and you can actually hear each event if you focus. If you have very sensitive ears like i do – play with equaliser as for me treble cuts ears while normal people just feel okay. But please people all what you need to care about now is – reliability of product, all the other aspects are just unreal. By the way, my gf has beats solo 3 and they do not offer such incredible sound quality.

The headphone an audiophile deserves. If you like the sony sound signature and want an all round headphone, this is the one. I have spent a lot of money on akg, and other high end brands, all of which i felt were lacking in depth and bass, despite the source and amp. These have hi-fi level sound but also have very capable details in all ranges. Great for edm, house and progressive, rock, metal, pop, all genres. As long as you have a good dac or source, you wont be disappointed. Comfort is great too, i can use it for 4+ hours straight without feeling warm or needing a break. Chose this over the sony noise cancelling wireless headphones, as they are almost identical. If you are an audiophile but want depth and punch in the bass frequencies, but also expect detailed mids and highs, this is the way to go. Do not waste your money on high end and overprices headphones or expensive tube amps and dacs.

They are a great pair of headphones. I’ve had a pair of these for over a year now, using them primarily as my office headset. They are a great pair of headphones. Sound quality is great, the mic picks up sound very well and comfort is not an issue. Good points:* comfort is great. I can wear these for a full 8-9 hour shift with no discomfort at all. * sound quality is great, they are nice and isolated. They block out the noise of the office very well, and there doesn’t seem to be much leakage for your neighbours to have to listen to. * built in mic works a treat, i’ve used it for plenty of calls either on phone or computer. The mic itself sits in a grand spot so you don’t need to fiddle with the cord while on call.

Brilliant, now that i have the right cable to connect them to my micro hifi system. The bass and treble are quite noticeable without ruining the sound quality. The build quality does look a bit on cheap side but i don’t care so long as the sound is good. Well worth forking out a few extra quid for the sound quality alone. Just a thought, its maybe just as well they look cheap they are less likely to be stolen.
