Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.


However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.


These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.


Sony Introduces Their Latest Mixing And Mastering Headphone - The MDR-MV1

The Sony MDR-MV1 open-back Studio Monitor Headphones provide spatial and stereo sound with a wide frequency range and soundstage feel. Designed for creators, they offer accurate reproduction of sound elements, lightweight comfort, and High-Resolution Audio capability. The open-back acoustic structure supports the mixing and mastering of spatial and stereo sounds. With a neutral frequency response (5 Hz - 80 kHz), they are ideal for production work.

Showcases Specially Developed HD Driver Units For Clean Sound

After extensive simulation and prototyping, Sony has developed a diaphragm shape and corrugation that minimises distortion and enables high compliance in the Sony MDR-MV1. This design allows for accurate reproduction in the low and high-frequency ranges, as well as high-sensitivity playback (5 Hz - 80 kHz). Furthermore, the inclusion of ducts on the back enhances volume and enables precise and powerful low-frequency reproduction, while maintaining a clear separation between the mid-range and low range in the Sony MDR-MV1.

Expertly Tuned Open Back Acoustic Structure For Hi-Res Presentation

Using HRTF-based signal processing, spatial sound sources are accurately delivered through an open-back acoustic structure that minimises reflected sound in the Sony MDR-MV1. By controlling airflow and employing an acoustic resistor, spatial resonance is eliminated, ensuring natural and rich bass reproduction without altering the sound. With High-Resolution Audio capability, sound sources are reproduced neutrally, enabling accurate monitoring of each element. This aids in capturing the venue ambience, spatial details, and overall changes during the mixing and mastering stages.

Detachable Cables For Professional Application

The Sony MDR-MV1’s cable features a widely used 6.3 mm stereo standard plug, commonly found in production settings. Additionally, a bundled plug adaptor enables connection to devices with 3.5 mm stereo mini jacks. The connection to the headphone unit is detachable using a secure screw system, allowing for reliable transmission and convenient cable replacement.

Meticulously Designed For Comfort And Offers 360 Reality Audio Experience

Crafted with utmost attention to comfort, the Sony MDR-MV1 provides an immersive 360 Reality Audio experience by accurately reproducing the positioning and movements of each sound in a 360-degree virtual environment.

Comfortable listening pleasure !

I used to own Bose Quiet comfort bluetooth headphones & they used to be my reference headphones while evaluating the wearing comfort of new headphones, as nothing came close to it. I recently got into the hobby of appreciating the finer nuances of music (courtesy Headphone zone and all my purchases from them - like Hifi Edition XS, iFI -hip DAC -2, Chord Mojo -2 etc. This recent purchase from Sony firmly ticks my 2 check-boxes for headphones - sound quality and wearing comfort. It is yet early days for me to give a final verdict but loving it so far...along with the wooden headphone stand from Headphone Zone (which was a sweet part of the deal !)

Hey JS, thank you so much for the amazing feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.

The only question:

Is it better than the MDR-7506, at four times the cost (albeit discounted)?

YES!

I suppose 'open-back' does make a difference.

Thank you for the review! we appreciate it.
