Pure sound for music lovers

Feel power and precision in your favorite tracks

Give your music the purity it deserves. With a frequency range extending up to 100 kHz, the High-Resolution Audio MDR-1A headphones capture the true essence of each track — so you’ll hear music that’s closer to the original studio master. From deep beats to soaring vocals, sound stays true for an authentic and precise experience.

 

Comfortable listening

Enjoy fine acoustics from a large driver and earcups that seal comfortably around your ears.

 

Ultra wide frequencies

Hear deep lows and euphoric highs with a full range of sound up to 100 kHz.

 

High sensitivity

Play music loud and clear from any home system or portable device with high sensitivity of 105 dB/mW.

 

Passion for sound

Every subtle note, precisely reproduced

Tune in to clear, balanced sound that stays true to the original recording, no matter how high you turn up the volume. A 1.57 in HD driver with a light but rigid aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer (LCP) diaphragm gives a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range than a conventional LCP driver.

 

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-Resolution Audio refers to a collection of digital processes allowing the encoding and playback of music using higher sampling rates than those used in CDs.

 

About High-Resolution Audio

 

Record at a higher frequency than CD

High-Resolution Audio typically records at 96 kHz / 24 bit or even 192 kHz / 24 bit — much higher than CD.

 

Hear more realistic, emotive sound

While CDs and MP3s top out around 20 kHz, High-Resolution Audio supports frequencies above 24 kHz (as high as 100 kHz on this model) and a wider dynamic range.

 

Keep sound in

The enfolding design with ergonomic 3D earpads seals music in and keeps distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears for the subtlest of sounds.

 

Balanced audio

With a balanced cable comprising four silver-coated copper wires, and independent ground wires for both channels (in blue and yellow), you hear clear, precise sound.2

Luxurious look and feel

 

Make your style statement

 

These iconic headphones look as good as they feel, with a sleek metal headband that perfectly complements plush, black leather earpads.

 

Pure comfort

Hear more of your music with a closed-back, wrap-around design that fits securely over your ears. Comfortable to wear for hours on end, so you can listen for longer.

 

Pressure-relieving earpads

Soft leather earpads rise and shape around your ears for a snug, comfortable fit.

 

Seamless stitching

With smoother materials and seamless sewing, comfort and durability is exceptional.

 

Pack and go

Take your music anywhere. A sliding metal headband and swivel folding earcups make it easy to store your headphones in a suitcase or bag.

 

Keep in touch

With an in-line remote and mic, you’ll be able to take hands-free calls whenever they come through on your Android smartphone or iPhone.

 

Stay in control

Play and personalize your music. Customize your calls. The Sony SmartKey app allows you to control key functions from your headphones.

 ...We like this Sony MDR-1A a lot, as it does a good job balancing clarity with just enough of laid-backness to make it a very versatile headphone that's well worth considering if you're looking for a full-size headphone...
