One of the first manufacturers to truly embrace the audio revolution, Sony has designed many an impressive headphone in the past 5 years. The MDR-10R is no exception. An accessible, entry-level headphone for those looking to take their first steps into audio nirvana, this is a pair of cans that checks off all the right boxes. Lightweight construction that's easy on the head and ears, sleek aesthetics, detachable cables, and a sound signature that plays well with modern music make this Sony headphone a fantastic stepping stone into the world of Hi-Fi.
At checkout, choose between the Black and White models of the MDR-10R.
Featuring 40 millimeter neodymium drivers, the Sony MDR-10R is a fun and engaging listen. The V-shaped frequency response lends a weighty bass and a shimmering treble to the sound signature, making it an ideal match for popular music today. Pop, rock, and EDM are a couple of the genres that really shine on the headphone. At just 40 Ohms with 100-decibel sensitivity, these can be plugged straight into your phone or laptop for instantly gratifying sound.
Weighing less than half a pound and armed with a plush headband and earpads, the Sony MDR-10R is wonderfully light to wear. The cups fold flat for easy storage and fit well in a backpack as a travel companion. Two 4-foot detachable cables (audio and mic) keep it short and sidestep the unseemly dangling problems longer cables face when taking headphones on the go.
