Sony MDR1-A headphone review - Hi-Res bass

Comfort and Specs


Though the grip is not tight on enough on the ears, MDR1-A is a very comfortable pair of cans. It rests on the head nicely, the padding is very soft and the cushions mould around the ears. Still, I would've liked it to clamp tighter on the head since it could easily slip off, especially if you do something silly, like shaking your head.

It's miles away more comfortable than the similarly priced Philips Fidelio L2, which had this almost painful headband that caused some serious wear fatigue.


Sony has this really detailed specs table available on the product page, so it wasn't really difficult to find details about the headphones:
