Great Audiophile Gift Ideas For The 2017 Holiday Season
Enjoy the Music.com celebrates our 12th annual gift ideas to give your audiophile!


Sony MDR-Z1R Headphones



  It's a lot of money ($2298) and it's well worth it. Maybe this a gift for you and you should be showing this article to your significant other.

Sony has a history of making high flying dynamic headphones, the MDR-R10 (only 2000 made) and the Qualia 010 chief among them. Now after a long absence, Sony has pulled out all the stops in creating this masterpiece of understatement. It looks like a closed headphone but it actually sits between closed and open designs. It rocks a more extended and visceral bass than almost any open headphone but achieves a transparency and comfort level that closed designs cannot match.



A massive 2.76" driver features a magnesium dome and liquid crystal polymer edge to offer a bandwidth up to 120 kHz. Sheepskin earpads that surround the ears ensure long term comfort. The Z1R is hand assembled in Japan and the package includes a long standard cable and a short balanced cable.
