Sony MDR-10R Review

Today’s generation is obsessed with the headphone business. It’s all about finding the right bass and the right fit. Sony has joined the game and added the new MDR-10RNC headphones to their line. Sony has built a good reputation and these headphones held up well against the competition.

 

The design of the Sony MDR-10RNC is pretty common and familiar for Sony headphones. The design is sleek and black with heavily padded earpieces and headband. They are lightweight as well and comfortable even during prolonged sessions. There is a power switch located on the bottom of the left earcup and an AINC button next to it. There is a 3.5mm audio jack on the left ear cup for the two cables that are included in the package. There is a single-button remote control located on one of the wires. The detachable cables are a bonus because it’s much cheaper to replace a broken cable that can be removed than to replace an entire headphone set.

 

The remote is fairly limited for the price of the headphones. There is no way to adjust the volume eon the headphones themselves, only on your electronic device. The headphones are able to fold flat, making for easy storage and they come equipped with a carrying case. They run on triple AAA batteries, this is rather unfortunate. It would be easier if the headphones used a rechargeable battery. The battery life is around 20 hours. This is a good time if you’re an average listener.

 

Users can engage in passive mode with these headphones. With noise cancelation not active, the MDR-10RNC displayed an obvious drop in volume. However, those who look for high quality bass (in either mode) will not be disappointed. Low frequency was a fairly present feature within the headphones with little distortion. The headphones work best with classical tracks versus rap or pop tracks. Although the MDR-10RNC still work, there is a noticeable muddy tone at times. Tracks with a lot of drumming sessions will sound a bit distorted because the headphones over-do the drum portion. Noise cancellation is fairly strong. There are three modes that the MDR-10RCN works with; airplane, buses/trains, and offices. The headphones automatically activate mode 1, but users can change this by hitting the AINC button. Noise reduction works fairly well in offices or places with a loud air condition unit running. It’s not perfect, but it works enough to keep you focused on the music and not the noisy people around you.

  • The Good :
    Noise cancelation levels; Passive mode is an option; Detachable cables; Comfortable fit
  • The Bad :
    Needs improvement on high-mids; Must manually turn off the headphones; Uses AAA batteries
Our score:
4 / 5
