Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (918) 407-3701 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

MDR-1A Headphones

Sony MDR1AB

Features

  • Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24 bit/192 kHz, rather than 16 bit/44.1 kHz), High-Resolution Audio gets you closer to the original studio master recording so you can enjoy your music just as the artist intended.
  • Powerful 1.57 in HD drivers with large vents allow the headphones to deliver punchy, rhythmic bass on even the most demanding track. A light but rigid aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer diaphragm responds quickly to reproduce vocals and mid-high range notes with intense clarity. Turn up the volume and hear clear, precise sound across the spectrum.
  • The wide frequency range-spanning 3 Hz to 100 kHz-is designed for today's broad variety of music styles. The 3 Hz low end of the frequency range offers more than enough latitude for even the deepest sub-bass notes. At the 100 kHz high-end, you'll be able to enjoy vocal melodies, subtle audio harmonics and tonality, giving your music more life and realism.
  • With a high sensitivity of 105dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you hear clearer sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume.

Pure sound-every note! Drawing inspiration from a legacy of personal audio reproduction, Sony engineers have developed the perfect balance of Premium style and hi-resolution audio performance. Introducing the MDR-1A Stereo Headphone featuring thoughtful design, lush long-term comfort, and ultra-responsive Hi-Res audio response for a sound experience bar-none.

Prepare for exceptional sound Lightweight and responsive, aluminum-coated Liquid Crystal Polymer driver units possess the necessary rigidity and internal loss to deliver linear, wideband frequency response ranging from sub-harmonic lows (3 Hz) to ultra-sonic highs (up to 100 kHz) for balanced and natural sound reproduction.

High-conductivity Silver-coated oxygen-free copper (OFC) cable ensures minimal signal transmission degradation for pure audio response at the driver. A unique 4-wire architecture further enhances the audio experience, with a separate ground and signal connection to each driver for enhanced separation, expanded sound and tight bass.

Comfortable fit, powerful sound Pressure-relieving urethane cushions wrap entirely around your ears for a comfortable acoustic seal and powerful bass response, while precise component machining, with the added placement of silicon rings around every moving axis, realizes smooth and silent earcup movement. In the end, you can expect an immersive listening experience.

Upgrade your cans Elevate an already outstanding listening experience to new levels via high-grade cables. High-performance wire paired with precision hardware facilitates the high-resolution, noise-free delivery of your favorite good-vibrations to your ears. Three models are available to suit: on-the-go (MUC-S12SM1), at-home (MUC-S30UM1), or balanced audio listening styles (MUC-S20BL1). Consult your retailer for further information.

Smartphone compatible Specifically designed for Android smartphones, a configurable in-line remote with microphone delivers personalized music and call functionality. 1 Using the free SmartKey APP (available at Google Play and the App Store) you can customize the in-line remote, control settings via your smartphone. 2

Supplied Accessories Two, supplied cables accommodate listening flexibility. A conventional connecting audio cable (1.2 m), in addition to an in-line microphone and remote cable for smartphone (1.2 m). A convenient carrying pouch is also supplied to keep your headphones and accessories secure.

This means you hear clearer sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume.
  • An aluminum-coated, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm produces more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range compared with conventional LCP drivers. Sound energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform for a true and authentic performance. Also enjoy a flatter frequency response, even when listening to the ultrahigh frequencies in High-Resolution Audio.
  • Precisely sculpted vents maximize the airflow in the headphone, allowing the LCP diaphragm to breathe more easily and deliver an instant response to powerful low-end bass lines.
  • The closed-back, enfolding design wraps around the ear, sealing in music and keeping out distractions. Acoustics are reflected back toward your ears, so you hear even the subtlest sounds. You also feel every beat, as the closed-back design maximizes the bass signatures in your music.
  • With a balanced four-wire connection and silver-copper dual cord, audio channel separation is improved for better sound. Unlike conventional headphones, which share a ground wire, the cord includes left, right, and independent ground wires for both channels, so you hear less distortion and crosstalk.
  • Soft leather earpads with pressure-relieving cushions, designed to rise and shape around your ears for a comfortable fit. Smooth materials and seamless stitching provide a harmonious mix of comfort and durability for long hours of listening.
  • Take these headphones anywhere you go. A swivel folding design makes it easy to store them when not in use or while traveling. The earcups swivel flat to slip easily into a suitcase or bag.
  • 4.4 balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals, while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration. The result is smoother high frequencies and superior sound quality.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
