40-mm HD drivers

Tuned for clearer sound
Our newly developed 1.57" lightweight HD driver with an aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer (LCP) diaphragm delivers clear, lively sound, especially on mid to high tones—perfect for vocal-focused styles—and a smooth, precise response across the entire frequency range.
Specially-designed Fibonacci-patterned grills protect the drivers while minimizing sound damping of high-resolution frequencies, so you can revel in every detail of the ultra-high notes.
Truly authentic sound
A supplied ?0.17" balanced connection cable retains all the clarity of studio sound so you can savor every detail of High-Resolution Audio.
A balanced cable fully separates left and right channels by including an additional ground connection to reduce cross-talk and increase audio efficiency, for superior sound quality.
Silver-coated oxygen-free copper
Four silver-coated oxygen-free copper (OFC) cables minimize resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail and smoother treble.
Listen in style and comfort
With an ultra-lightweight frame and pressure-relieving earpads, you can listen comfortably in style for long periods of time.
Listen comfortably for hours thanks to soft cushioned synthetic leather earpads. The closed-back design minimizes any sound loss.

Sony MDR-1AM2 Over Ear Headphone
I have a pair of these that I use with my Sony ZX-300 I totally love these. Nothing like tuning out and not missing any of the music. All the while catching all the notes as intended. I also mostly listen to hi-res FLAC files. They sound great even using the 3.5 mm cable.
