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.

Lightest, greatest sounding headphones
Sony 1a series has always been legendary among audiophiles, known for it extensive bass and sweet midrange, the only cons of previous model is the lack of shine in the treble, This new model, they are PERFECT, the treble is clearer and more shine in the cymbals, hi-hats the midrange stay sweet and the bass remain powerful. This is how a good headphones should perform !

Best Audiophile Headphones Under RM1,000
Bought it today after falling in love with it early this year when it was launched. When I first listened into it using hi-res DSEE-HX settingon my Xperia Z5 Premium, I said WOW and realized how much my ears had been "cheated" all these decades. That's nothing quite like it. Simply phenomenal! Punchy bass, clear mids & unhurried, balanced treble. Priced RM1,299 then was way beyond my budget. But since longing for it over last 6 months, I just couldn't help today when I found out this morning its price has dropped to RM999.

best sound quality
Ive had these for a couple years now. i make music as hobby and needed decent headphones to hear all the little bits that i normally would miss so i went and compared them to a lot of other headphones in person. it came out on top in comfort and sound quality. its kinda gotten a bit beat up over the years and ive looked to find a possible replacement but honestly i cant give these up. despite the rough usage theyre work like new with no issues. theyre to perfect i dont think ill be able to find better quality elsewhere especially for the price! to bad the bluetooth ones dont have the same frequency range as this pair. would be nice to have color options. i like these way better than bose or beats by dre. sony did good !

Extremely light headphone
The weight became the first things inspired me. And during daily use, the weight really make sense. It let me use it longer compare with my previous headphone.
