Customer Reviews for Sony MDR-1AM2 Wired High-Resolution Audio Over-Ear Headphones with Built-In Remote and Microphone (Black)
Using a DAC with these headphones is recommended. This way the sound is rich in details, bass, and clarity. On top of it all, they are the most comfortable I have ever tried. I can easily use them for 6 hours non-stop.
For the performance, it is exactly what I expected. Clear high, clean voice and moderate low. The bass is there and it is good but not too much which I prefer this way. (My old headphones is kind of studio reference model and has very little bass so I am now accustomed to just fair bass.
The earpad is good, really comfortable. I can wear it all day long without take it off. ButI still prefer WH-1000XM3 style over this one.
I am not sure if this model will continue or will be replaced by h.ear series. The new h.ear 3 series are in store right now so I recommend you try them and compare before buying this.
Sound quality is wonderfully good. Bass is ample but not overboosted and stays full into the frequency range. The bass begins to roll off at about 25Hz, which is lower than what you can perceive as a note anyway. Treble sparkles without being piercing or tinny.
The only aspect that leaves something to be desired is the build quality - 100% plastic. Everything still feels pretty sturdy, but I'm somewhat worried about whether they'll hold up after a couple years of use. However, since it still doesn't feel "cheap", it's not enough for me to take a star off.
Awesome product, would definitely recommend.
