I've had the MDR-1A's for about 6 months now (in the silver/brown color). I'm quite happy with them. They're very efficient and get plenty of volume out of a mobile device without an amp. They may not be the most neutral or accurate headphones, but they sound great out of the box without equalizer tweaks when listening to a streaming service or mp3's. I recommend them to someone who doesn't want to fuss with a bunch of extra gear or software and just wants an easy to use set that sounds great on their own. My only real complaint is that both included cables are only 3 feet and there's no 6.35mm plug included (shows they really planned these to be only used with mobile devices). I've got mine running through a creative sound blaster E1 amp off my laptop which also helps extend the cord length.
