”If you want a closed-back headphone, and are willing to feed these Sonys with capable electronics, we don’t think we’ve tested a better alternative.” ‘What Hi-Fi? magazine’. 5-star review. Tested at £1700.

Raising the bar on audio standards

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.

Capture pure sound with the 70mm HD Driver
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.

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.

Ergonomic sheepskin ear pads
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.

Titanium and leather headband
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.

Long wear comfort-optimised
The hanger and slider are manufactured with thin and high rigid aluminium alloy, which provides optimal comfort for a long time period of time without secular change.

If nothing but the best will do, the Sony MDRZ1R meets the highest standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still impressing me I have owned these headphones for 3 months now and they are still managing to impress me. The quality of the materials used for the headphones and storage box are first class. Adjustment and comfort during use is excellent. I power them with a Chord Mojo DAC amp. Having studied some reviews before I purchased them, I was aware of the “laid back” nature of the sound reproduction, which in turn has led to some negative responses. With this in mind I would recommend that anybody considering purchasing them has an extended demo, to realise their full potential. Be careful though --- it will probably end up with you having to own them!
