Sony MDR-1A Details

Sony MDR-1A Wireless High-Resolution Over-Ear Headphones (Black): Pure sound for music lovers
  • Closed-back, over-ear headphones dynamic
  • 40mm drivers with an aluminum-coated, Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm
  • LDAC Hi-Fidelity wireless music streaming from compatible sources
  • S-Master® HX amplification delivers superior playback quality

With a frequency range extending up to 100 kHz, the Sony MDR-1A High-Resolution Audio 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. You’ll hear sound that stays true to the original recording, no matter how high the volume, as a powerful 1.57 in driver with an aluminum-coated Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm handles the heaviest beats with the utmost precision. Inside the drivers, two high-energy neodymium magnets vibrate to produce sound. These magnets have enhanced impedance to deliver high-quality performance.

What is High-Resolution Audio?
High-Resolution Audio takes you closer to the original studio recording by converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24 bit/192 kHz rather than 16 bit/44.1 kHz). While CDs top out at around 20 kHz, High-Resolution Audio supports frequencies over 24 kHz (as high as 100 kHz with this model).

Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
DSEE upscales compressed digital music (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA). It restores the highs and lows lost in compression, producing rich sound closer to CD quality.

Hands-free calls and easy one-touch control
Thanks to a built-in mic, you can take calls hands-free without removing your headphones. And simply touch the earpads to stop or play tracks, swipe left and right for previous and next track, trace and stop for scanning, or swipe up and down to adjust volume.

Keep sound in
The enfolding design with ergonomic 3D earpads seals music in and keeps sound distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back toward your ears for the subtlest sounds.

Mic and control
With an in-line remote and mic, you’ll be able to take hands-free calls whenever they come through on your Android smartphone or iPhone. And the Sony SmartKey app allows you to control key functions from your headphones.
