Sony MDR-Z1R Signature Series Over-Ear Headphones Overview
Built for audio professionals and music enthusiasts alike, the Sony MDR-Z1R Signature Series Over-Ear Headphones feature cutting-edge technology for crisp, clear audio. The massive 70 mm HD drivers feature a Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm and magnesium dome that reduces spatial resonance and offers an uncompromising, dynamic sound. These over-ear headphones offer 120 kHz frequency response, which easily accommodates virtually any audio regardless of recording quality and genre. As a result, these headphones offer crisp highs and pounding bass in perfect balance. The resonance-free housing features a special acoustic filter to prevent unwanted noise from penetrating the earphones, so you can listen to your audio in its purest form without worrying about external distractions. A lightweight design and cushioned, sheepskin ear pads offer impressive comfort for long listening sessions, and the compartmentalized hard case makes transporting and storing headphones and accompanying cables simple and convenient.

Customer Reviews for Sony MDR-Z1R Signature Series Over-Ear Headphones
Terrific HP otherwise and I've owned the all ( Meze Empyrean, Audeze LCD-4, Focal Utopia, Hifiman HE1000v2, Sennsheiser 800s, Dan Clark Ether Flow1.1 ) .
An XLR cable by Sony would be nice :-)
Adjustment and comfort during use is excellent.
I power them with a Chord Mojo DAC amp.
Having studied some reviews before I purchased them, I was aware of the “laid back” nature of the sound reproduction, which in turn has led to some negative responses.
With this in mind I would recommend that anybody considering purchasing them has an extended demo, to realise their full potential. Be careful though --- it will probably end up with you having to own them!
