Audio46's Opinion

The Sony MDR-1AM2 presents a lively and energetic bass, accompanied by clean and distinct lows. The midrange reveals sparkling detail, while the high end delivers a smooth and pleasant sound. The headphone especially impressed us with its expansive soundstage, enveloping the listener in the music. Comfort and its lightweight build add to the overall appeal, making it suitable for long listening sessions. And overall, the combination of the low-end and soundstage offers a profound and captivating listening experience that surpasses expectations for a closed-back headphone at this price. The MDR-1AM2 is a must-try for budding audiophiles.
