Dual microphones for powerful noise cancelling performance
Sony's Dual Noise Sensor Technology combines Feedback and Feedforward Microphones with a digital noise cancelling software engine to eradicate external noises, for a truly immersive audio experience.
Superb sound accuracy and balance
Unique to Sony, the S-Master Amplifier is designed for exceptional sound accuracy, clear signal separation and balanced audio reproduction via a digital-to-digital process. What you get is clean, crisp sound and a realistic audio experience, just like the original recording.
Restores high-frequency sound for natural audio
Enjoy crisp, natural sound on the MDR-1RNC with DSEE technology. DSEE significantly improves sound quality by restoring high-frequency sound usually lost in compressed audio files.
Balanced and accurate sound reproduction
A breakthrough in audio technology, the liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm is designed to balance rigidity and high levels of internal loss, resulting in minimal vibrations. Your music comes through perfectly balanced, with the most accurate sound reproduction yet.
Enlarged air vents for impressive bass sound
Realise true bass potential with beat response control. Enlarged air vents at the back of driver units increase port efficiency to give you the heart-pumping bass you crave.
Comfortable, pressure-relieving cushions
At Sony, we believe that comfort is just as important as solid sound quality. That's why our pressure-relieving cushions are tailored for your ears. They not only provide a comfortable wrap-around feel, but also help to seal in your music, preventing sound leakage.
Inward axis structure
Generic headphones offer an outward axis structure, inhibiting comfort and wearability. The MDR-1RNC's unique inward axis structure ensures that the headphones conform to the shape of your head, for a snug, stable fit.
The MDR-1RNC is constructed with silicon rings for smooth, silent movement. This minimises mechanical rattling for pure, unadulterated sound.
Tangle-free serrated cord
Tiny grooves on the cord surface minimise tangling.
Fully automatic Artificial Intelligence (AI) Noise Cancelling
Get 100% audio enjoyment without the distraction of external noise.
