What is it?
Sony products made in Japan are synonymous with absolute quality and performance, and the MDR-Z1R headphones are no exception. They are lovingly crafted with only the finest components and manufacturing techniques, resulting in exceptional sound quality. Settle for nothing less than immersive excellence with the full range of Signature Series products. Designed for ultimate sound quality, they transcend audio conventions to elevate every note.
The ergonomically crafted headphones are designed to comfortably encase your head in sound, preventing any from leaking and effectively delivering powerful lows. The genuine sheepskin ear pads cushion your ears in luxurious softness. The enfolding design is tailored to wrap around the ear, sealing music in and keeping distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back toward your ears for the subtlest of sounds. Flexible and light, yet durable, for a more natural over-ear fit. Beta titanium has high elasticity, which will return to its original shape even when bent. Genuine leather adds sturdiness and comfort. The hanger and slider are manufactured with thin and high rigid aluminum alloy, which provides optimal comfort for a long period of time without secular change.
The MDR-Z1R headphones have been engineered to deliver a wider frequency range, reproducing super low and super high frequencies of up to 120 kHz. The wider dynamic range richly reproduces every minuscule sound. The result is an immersive, captivating listening experience.
The headphones and accompanying cables come presented in a stylish storage case, with separated compartments and a luxury satin lining.
Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real.
How does it work?
The newly developed diaphragm with magnesium dome and liquid crystal polymer edge enables up to 120-kHz playback in High-Resolution Audio. The result is unparalleled sound purity and precision. A special acoustic filter controls the air resistance and eliminates any reverberations produced by driver movement, so that only clean, crisp frequencies get through.
The newly developed Φ0.17″ balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals, while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration. The result is smoother high frequencies and superior sound quality. The MDR-Z1R 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.
Aluminum-coated LCP-edge diaphragm with magnesium dome for greater precision: The magnesium dome diaphragm propagates vibrations generated from the voice coil to the dome part, and achieves reproduction of sound in the super-high frequency range. The combination of multiple high internal loss materials leads to less sound coloration and clear sound.
Pure sound, no added noise: Filtering out the unnecessary with resonance-free housing. A special acoustic filter controls the air resistance and eliminates any reverberations produced by driver movement, so that only clean, crisp frequencies get through.
