Sony MDR-1ABT

 

The Sony MDR-1ABT are wireless Bluetooth headphones that don't scrimp on sound quality or tech. They're about as up to date as you could hope for, offering features in line with the current Hi-Res Audio trend.

Handy 'invisible' controls ; Good wireless performance ; Smooth, fun sound

Quite pricey ; Don't feel £300-expensive ; Soft mids

Comfortable, great-sounding headphones with clever ‘invisible’ music controls.

Excellent sound quality throughout the frequency range, large and comfortable earcups good for extended listening sessions

They’re a bit too big and slip, Bluetooth version almost doubles the price tag of MDR-1A, Bluetooth playback much quieter

The Sony MDR-1ABT Bluetooth over-ear headphones are not just big in size, they're just as big in the audio department too. Delivering big bass without being over-the-top, there's oodles of all-round quality and excellent balance to be found here,...

amazing sounds and light weight.

 

This is 3rd pair of noise cancelling headphonesI have owned. So far its the best ever had. Super comfortable and light weight. New blue tooth pairs very fast. The only thing I found not very easy to use is the touch control bit. Tap and stop is ok, but...
