Tech of the week Sony’s new MDR-1AM2 headphones deliver uncompromi­sed hi-res sound on the move


SONY Electronic­s’s (Sony) latest in Hi-Resolution headphones, the MDR-1AM2 brings a host of new and improved features, redefining the premium headphones industry.

Building from the MDR-1A headphones that launched in 2014, the MDR-1AM2 features high quality listening experience­s, and improved sound systems.

“At Sony, we are committed to bringing high quality sound to consumers,” said Sony Electronic­s, North America Mobile Audio Business, Home Entertainm­ent and Sound director, and head Dunja LaRosa.

“Reviving Sony’s classic headphones, the MDR-1AM2 is a testament to this commitment, playing back music as the artist intended and delivering consumers the ability to enjoy high quality music, regardless of their location.”

Extending its Hi-Res credential­s even further, the new MDR-1AM2 is compatible with up to 100 kHz frequencie­s playback, and have a newly developed 40mm HD driver unit so users can enjoy full-bandwidth sound.

The aluminum-coated liquid crystal polymer diaphragms support every fine distinctio­n with perfect reproducti­on. The 1AM2s feature a Fibonacci patterned grill to support ultra-high frequency ranges as well as silver-coated OFC (oxygen free copper) for less transmissi­on signal loss.

Like the MDR-Z1R, the MDR1AM2 headphones come with a standard cable as well as a 4.4mm balanced connection for even greater sound and improved usability.

The headphones are also lighter than its previous model – a great advantage whether you are wearing them at home or on the go. With this pair you can enjoy wearing your around-ear headphones for longer, with ear pads that have been specially designed for lasting comfort.

The comfortabl­e synthetic leather ear pads are made of lowresilie­nce polyuretha­ne foam.
