Product Information

All Your Music; Just as the Artist Intended

With advanced acoustic design and premium materials, these High-Resolution Audio headphones capture the true essence of each track – so you’ll hear music that’s closer to the original studio master. From deep bass to soaring vocals, sound stays true for an authentic listening experience thanks to a super-responsive LCP driver.

Features

  • High-Resolution Audio compatible
  • Responsive Liquid Crystal Polymer driver for clarity
  • Smartphone compatible with in-line remote mic
  • Heavyweight bass with Beat Response Control
  • Swivel ear cups for portability

Enjoy Music as the Artist Intended with High-Resolution Audio

Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By digitally capturing music at a higher rate than CD, High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording and enjoy your music just as the artist intended. 

Aluminum-Coated LCP Diaphragm for More Precision

An aluminum-coated, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm gives a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range than even a conventional LCP driver. High frequencies uniquely contained in High-Resolution Audio especially benefit from the added rigidity, and energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform, ensuring a true and authentic performance. 

Wide Frequency Response for a Full Range of Sound

The wide-band frequency range – spanning 3Hz to 100kHz – is designed for a broad variety of music styles. Such a wide frequency response ensures even advanced audio formats, which require a much larger spectrum, can be accurately reproduced without hard limits or frequency roll-off, giving your music more life and realism. 

Patterned Grill for Smooth Ultra-Highs

Grills help to protect the precision headphone diaphragm and are designed specifically for passing ultra-high frequencies without introducing ‘color’ to the sound. The grill pattern is based on a Fibonacci sequence to ensure no frequency is boosted or cut. The result is a smooth, refined sound right across the frequency range. 

Supplied Balanced-Connection Headphone Cable

A 4.4Φ balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals completely, unlike conventional headphone cables which share a ground wire. This minimizes signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration, so you hear less distortion and cross-talk. 

Silver-Coated Oxygen-Free Copper

The MDR-1AM2 uses silver-coated oxygen-free copper cables, designed to minimize resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail, and smoother treble sounds. 

Patterned Grill for Smooth Ultra-Highs

Grills help to protect the precision headphone diaphragm and are designed specifically for passing ultra-high frequencies without introducing ‘color’ to the sound. The grill pattern is based on a Fibonacci sequence to ensure no frequency is boosted or cut. The result is a smooth, refined sound right across the frequency range. 

Supplied Balanced-Connection Headphone Cable

A 4.4Φ balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals completely, unlike conventional headphone cables which share a ground wire. This minimizes signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration, so you hear less distortion and cross-talk. 

Super Lightweight Design for Hours of Comfort

The MDR-1AM2’s super lightweight design relieves pressure on your ears so you can listen for hours in comfort. 

Swivel Design Makes Travel Easy

Take these headphones with you anywhere. A swivel design makes them easy to store on the go. The earcups swivel flat for easy packing in a bag or slipping into the supplied pouch. 

Smartphone Compatible with In-Line Remote Mic

Stay connected to the world, even when immersed in your favorite music. Take calls on your smartphone and control your music with the in-line remote mic.

Very impressed...
Purchased a year ago, so I waited before I made a review...I currently run the headphones with a Monolith Portable Headphone Amplifier with THX AAA Technology...
The sound is clear, large and powerful...I have taken the headphones on various trips, and were awesome while waiting for my flight, and while on the plane. They are comfortable and durable.
My 18 year old son likes them so much, he wants them ( mind you he currently has bass heavy BEATS By DRE PRO) he says that “the Sonys are clearer”...I think I may have gotten him to appreciate music more...nonetheless I’ve purchased the MDR-Z7M2, and I’ll review those as well...

Works straight out-of-the-box
Bought this a week ago, and they sound AMAZING.
They work well with the DAC/Amp I purchased a week earlier.

I have not used the Balanced cable that came with the headphones, as I need an adapter to plug into the Amplifier, which I have not been able to find yet. ;(
With or without the Balanced Cable they sound great and feel great too!

My eyes have been opened
Excellent headphones to use on the go. I own several pairs of headphones, ranging from $100 up to $1,600. These are honestly some of my favorite. The warm sound, the clarity all punches well above its weight class. Can’t recommend these enough to a person who wants excellent sound quality while on the go.

Exceptional Sound Stage
Bought this to use with my Xperia 1 II and PHA-2. A great follow up to the 1A with superb sounds like no other. Registers with Sony Connect app for a truly 360 Audio experience.

Fantastic headphones with 1 problem
Had these headphones for more than a year now and as headphones these are some of the best at the price range (£100-200) with great design, very light and comfortable with amazing quality. After long sessions of listrning your ears can get hot but that's most closed off headphones. The only major issue is the wire. I have had 3 wires with these headphones and all have broke in less than 6 months. You can't just plug any wire into it as well as they don't fit. So if your wires break out of warranty might be difficult to find a replacement as sony charges £60 for a new wire. If i could plug any wire into these fantastic headphones would be an easy sell to anyone.
