Sony announces new premium headband-type MDR-1 headphones
Today Sony introduced its new premium headband-type MDR-1 headphones. Available in standard, Bluetooth wireless and digital noise canceling versions, the new MDR-1 headphones is a result of a unique collaboration between Sony Electronics and Sony Music Entertainment. The new Sony MDR-1 premium headphones deliver an enhanced acoustic design allowing listeners to hear the music the way artists intended it to sound in the studio. Featuring a newly developed 40mm Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) film diaphragm, the MDR-1R delivers high rigidity, lightness and higher internal loss that is essential for a balanced, highly accurate reproduction of today’s up-front vocals, mid/high range details, as well as rich, powerful lows and extended highs.
The MDR-1R headphones are designed for long-term wearing comfort with pressure-relieving ear cushions, providing a supportive, wrap-around feel, as well as highly effective acoustic seal, further reinforcing the headphones’ powerful sub-bass reproduction. The MDR-1R standard headphones, MDR-1RBT Bluetooth wireless headphones and MDR-1RNC digital noise canceling headphones will be available in November 2012 at the following pricing: MDR-1R, about $299, MDR-1RBT, $399 and MDR-1RNC, $499.
