Sony MDR-1000X Headphone Review – Rtings.com

Hands-on review of the Sony MDR-1000X
Full review: http://www.rtings.com/headphones/reviews/sony/mdr-1000x

The Sony MDR-1000x are well-designed and sturdy wireless headphones with one of the best noise cancellation we’ve measured so far. They’re comfortable and packed with active features that make them versatile enough for most use cases. They don’t have the best sound for more critical listeners, but their overall performance makes them great headphones for every day, casual use.

Its really good to see a review that have actual sound quality comparison side by side instead of just saying oh its good, oh its bad, which every one can say

I was using the QC35 since the day they were available and I have switched to this Sony MDR 1000x 2 months ago, and I find the noise cancelling far better and not just slightly

justcruisin109 says:

I have the 1000x headphones and have been happy with them. I understand Android O will have the LDAC software built in to allow the best bluetooth sound quality.

GreenBulletProd says:

I like the MDR-100X more than my old QC’s. Bass is better for sure.

Marcus U says:

I was using these headphones since they were released up until last week. I’ve upgraded to a pair of the Audio Technica ATH-DSR9BTs & those things are no joke. Extremely clear & more detalied sounding than the 1000Xs.

Timothy Field says:

Definitely worth mentioning that the next version of Android (Android O) will support LDAC.

gorillapancake says:

Even though this review is comprehensive, it doesn’t make it definitive which is best.
Bottom line, which is the best sounding Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphone?

Shaun Eliastam says:

Brilliant review thanks! The best I’ve seen to date! I currently have the Bose QC35 and am considering changing to the Sony MDR-1000x as I find the ANC pressure uncomfortable and also the sound quality does not seem warm enough. From a sound quality point of view, which are superior?

Epic Radio says:
