What sounds better?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I live in an area where there aren't many electronic stores, therefore have to buy most of my devices online. Hence whenever I am buying headphones I cannot listen to them personally, unless i buy them. 

 

So i wanted to know, according to you guys do the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros sound better or do the Sony MDR-1R sound better.

 

I listen to various genres such as indie folk, little bit of pop, some EDMs etc.

 

If you guys have different headphone suggestions that would be nice.

 

Thanks in advance!

@NannerBeans has owned both, he can give a good opinion on both for you.

Hm well they are both great headphones but I found the pads on the Sonys to be more comfortable because they are softer but they are smaller than the COP and is more comfortable to carry around. I think the Sony wins in terms of being more friendly to on the go and the detachable mic doesn't have a locking mechanism so it can be used with any 3.5mm cable which is a huge plus. Sound-wise, the Sonys have thumpier bass. I don't remember too much about the COP other than I was disappointed in them since I came from DT770s and I find those to be better sounding. I couldn't find a setting on the bass ports that I actually liked and on the contrary, I like the Sonys the first time I put it on. Long story short, I'm much happier with the MDR 1R and they're currently my on the go headphones for work.

On a side note, damn am I popular enough to get tagged like ShearMe does all the time? :D

 

 

No, I'm just good at remember things like this. :P

Thank you. I think I will probably settle with the MDR 1R's then. Just one last thing do you have any information on the Sennheiser Momentums?

They sounded fairly nice but were way too uncomfortable. Also Sennheiser doesn't use a 3.5mm socket for the detachable cable.

I don't own both, but tried both, and yeah, MDR-1R FTW. They got a new version, the MDR-1A (quite pricier though).

 

COP, as with other Beyer's, got quite sturdy built. Just by holding it, you'd know it would stand mild abuses with no problems. MDR-1R, however, got less sturdy built. Feels like those 'use with care' devices.
