An excellent quality bluetooth headphone. Wired connection similar to bluetooth in terms of quality. Pity i had to return because not charging and don’t know if any other electric fault.
I haven’t been impressed with sony lately but these headphones are amazing. Sound quality is superb and you walk around your flat, house or wherever without any worries of the sound quality deteriorating. The most surprising quality about the headphones is that you only have to charge them at least once every 4/6 weeks even with heavy usage, the battery life is incredible like nothing else i’ve never experienced.
Spent ages reading all the reviews on bluetooth cans and tried most of them . These are the ones in this price bracket. Great sound, comfatable, lightweight, awesome battery life, phone usage works well. Here are the specifications for the Sony MDR1RBT Wireless Bluetooth Prestige Headphones –:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Wireless over-ear headphones developed with Sony Music Entertainment, with Bluetooth v3.0, NFC and a 30-hour battery life
- 40mm Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm

As a consumer i rate things on a buy once principle. These are great headphones that are comfortable, offer good build quality and clear sound. The design of these high quality **not noise cancelling** bluetooth headphones is simple and appealing. [ed these are not as believed when originally wrote the above noise cancelling headphones. I still rate these headphones and enjoy them daily. The noise cancelling feature should be made clear. ]
Great headphones very comfortable, although a bit expensive but i suppose you get what you pay for.
Reviews from purchasers :
Almost there, despite the slight discomfort
Sweaty, bulky and uncomfortable
Amazing but gutted.
These are by far the best headphones i have ever owned and i have owned a few. Awesome bass with crystal clear trebles and a good mid range, plenty of punch and lots of volume. Very comfortable to wear and very well made with good quality materials.
Lovely sound, design and well built.
I searched a number of sites for bluetooth headphones and read a number of reviews. Everything i read about these were very positive but i was a bit dubious at paying such a hefty sum. Nevertheless i took the plunge and was very glad i did. The last pair of headphones i bought was in the 1990s so obviously the improvement was phenomenal. I am a bit ‘mutton and geoff’ in one ear but even i could hear a vast improvement to what i am listening too. I bought them mainly for commuting to work which takes around an hour and they last a very long time on one charge but also use them working around the home and in the garden (wired earbuds were no use as they were always getting caught and falling out). They are easy to operate and to pair with my smartphone and ipod and while they are expensive i would recommend them. A very comfortable fit, light to wear although i do find that walking to work my ears do get a bit hot and sweaty after a while. I also think they are quite smart to look at and often see people on the station platform looking at them. The fact there is no wires is a blessing although i use the wired attachment when on the computer.
Battery life, sound quality, comfort are all outstanding. Sound leakage is next to none. Small hissing noise when no sound being passed to them is the only reason i dont give them 5*.
These headphones are very easy to wear and extremely comfortable, in fact easily the best fit and can be worn for long periods without any sore ears.
Has these headphones for a couple of months. I cannot find any fault with them. The headphones seem to connect with anything really easily, well recommended.
When these arrived i noticed they didn’t have a ce marking and the box said ‘for the chinese market only’ thinking that sony would not have a global standard this didn’t bother me. Like all bluetooth devices they suffer from most of the ‘classics’ like a slight blip before a new steam & occasional drop-outs. When stable they have a really warm sound without the base being too obtrusive, they are comfy but i could imagine them to get a bit sweaty on hot days, the range is good i get 14 metres before they drop. Can’t hear any hiss, classical music sounds great for bluetooth. Batteries seem to go on forever, been using them everyday for a week now & still going strong. I did audition the bose but i think the volume is higher on these. Overall don’t think you could get any better than these nice looking cans. As a footnote i wouldn’t pay sony’s web price of £400 though that’s taking the mick.
Really good headphones, down side bit too big sound quality is fantastic. Bluetooth works very well but a little pricey.
It was disappointing to have to return the first pair of mdr-1rbt headphones purchased from amazon as the product was missing the charging cable and looked like it might have been a previous return. However, being the first purchase from amazon where i had a problem i returned the product for replacement and am extremely pleased i did. The returns process is very easy, and in only a few days my replacement headphones arrived. I am not an expert on headphones so cannot rate these compared to others on the market but as someone who is often away on business i was looking for headphones which would allow me listen to musc through either my mobile or laptop without worrying about cables. Also important was to be able to make or recieve a call. These headphones are perfect for this. The sound quality is cystal clear, and i am now hearing so much more which is clearly lost through my home hifi system. Setting up the headphones via bluetooth again is simple and quick. For me they are also very comfortable to wear, and after a few minutes you forget you have them on your head. I have ordered seperately a hard carry case to help protect the headphones, as i feel the soft carry case supplied does not offer any real protection, but is a good space saver option.
Very high quaality headphones. Connects easily in seconds, easy to set up. Sound quality is amazing, you will be lost with the clarity of music, crystal clear performance. Good position of the handling buttons.
Nice clear sound, punchy without being overpowering like beats. They do get hot after a while though. The inner pads are so thin and cause the the inner frame of the diaphragm to touch my ears which does cause discomfort and is noticeable after say an hours use. This was highlighted in a hifi review. I still took a chance and that’s the only real thing that slightly bothers me. Don’t come with an i-control inline remote cable for some strange reason for the huge price?. There not as exciting as say the my logitech ue9000 headphone as they are have a stronger bass. These are a little more accurate though. The battery life is fantastic, they pair so easily via nfc.
I wasn’t totally okay with having mediocre bluetooth headphones. So i was in for buying something despite the price. At first i was inclined for sennheiser 550 (my laptop hasn’t got the apt x codec, nor my celular phone), but for the price i had to be sure. Sony mdr1rbt were the best reviewed in the meta research i made. However i wasn’t prepared for this superb quality. Awesome sound, awesome battery. I guess there will always be experts who don’t like this or that. But these headphones are really good. The price is really high and no headphones should cost this much, but for less you get less quality. The corporations are here to screw us. At least i can listen to sweet music with these headphones while they do it.
Sound quality is amazing, the bass is there, the mids are perfect, battery life is incredible, i haven’t even charged it since the day it arrived and the battery is still going at this exact moment. If you compare it to the beats, price and sound doesn’t even come near the sony range. The best thing about this when it runs out of battery you can plug in the wired and continue listening to your music which beats doesn’t allow you. So comfortable and it is worth every penny.
A wonderful set of headphones and worth every penny, extremely comfortable and pairing is so easy especially via nfc, i definitely made the right choice. Would have been nice if they were noise cancelling but i was more interested in the ease of use for bluetooth while still being able to cable them if needed. They are not cheap but like i said worth every penny.
Very comfortable and excellent sound quality.
I have had few other bluetooth headphones, but this one is worth every penny compare to my previous mm450, the one thing i hated about my mm450 were the volume it only got a little bit better when using the bluetooth options item self. Although the quality were good but what is the point having excellent quality without being able to even hear the sounds, however, these are equally loud with and without the bluetooth. The design are of the headphones are well made. If you want good base excellent sound go for it. I feel like buying another one but am officially broke after buying this headphones.
