Pure sound for music lovers
Feel power and precision in your favourite tracks
Give your music the purity it deserves. With a frequency range extending up to 100kHz, 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.
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 100kHz.
Play music loud and clear from any home system or portable device with high sensitivity of 105dB/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 40mm HD driver with a light but rigid aluminium-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.
