Customer Reviews for Sony MDR-1AM2 Wired High-Resolution Audio Over-Ear Headphones with Built-In Remote and Microphone (Black)
These Sony MDR-1AM2 headphones far surpass the quality of any others I tried in terms of comfort and sound quality. The mic quality on the cord for these headphones is better than the boom mic on my Cooler Master / Arctis 5. I had low expectations from the mic, but it seems to filter out a lot of background noise that my other mics pick up, and I don't have to worry about rustling the cord or crinkling paper/bags near it like other headsets. I can wear these all day long and forget I have them on. They don't leak much sound, and when I have music on I can't hear a thing from anything else in the room.
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...
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!
