Serious Monitor Headphones from SonySony's MDR-Z1000 studio monitor headphones are top-of-the-line, all the way. Given that Sony's pro 'phones are ubiquitous in studios worldwide, the MDR-Z1000s must be pretty impressive (they are). The MDR-Z1000s employ pliable urethane earpads that are so comfortable you may forget you have headphones on - except for the uber-accurate sonics emanating from the high-tech drivers. You'll hear details in your mixes you didn't even know were there. The MDR-Z1000s come with two detachable oxygen-free copper cables of different lengths. If you're in the market for a serious pair of monitor headphones, the Sony MDR-Z1000s are about as serious as it gets.
Sony MDR-Z1000 studio monitor headphones at a Glance:
Accurate monitoring through headphones
Sony designed the MDR-Z1000 headphones as studio monitors. Using headphones for studio monitors used to be a recipe for disappointment, wherein your mixes simply don't "translate" very well to speaker systems in the world outside your 'phones. No more. These cans are supremely effective at telling you what you need to know about what you've recorded - or what you're about to record. With a frequency response of 5Hz -80kHz there's not much to miss!
Sony's cutting-edge technology inside
Sony knows what goes into great monitor headphones - their 'phones are found in top studios and on location worldwide. They've incorporated this considerable cache of know-how into the MDR-Z1000s. The MDR-Z1000s employ stiff, yet responsive liquid crystal polymer film diaphragms, providing the needed rigidity and internal loss for balanced and stunningly accurate audio performance.
Comfort for your marathon sessions
One of the major concerns about using headphones for monitoring is comfort. Granted, it's highly personal issue, but there does exist a professional consensus about what constitutes comfort in a headphone. A lot of it has to do with materials - the MDR-Z1000s employ state-of-the-art noise-isolating ear pads with pressure-relieving urethane foam that covers you entire ear for an excellent fit and reduced ambient noise. When you're monitoring thorough the Sony MDR-Z1000s, you'll hardly know you have them on.
