Sony Announces New Studio Headphone and Audiophile Earphone Range
Starting with the MDR-Z1000 ear pleasers that are designed for the studio. These are said to pack ultra-wide range HD driver units which are rocking a newly-developed Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm. This is reported to equate to a light-weight but sturdy disposition.
The MDR-Z1000 have noise isolation earpads and the cord is made of 7N Grade, 99.99999 per cent, oxygen free copper. The frequency response is 5-80,000Hz and the sensitivity is 108dB/mW.
Next is the MRR-ZX series – this is made up of the flagship ZX700 with the ZX500, ZX300 and ZX100 following its lead.
These are headphones tailored to your digital music play back needs. These feature a closed design to keep your sound to yourself – although I’m sure that some git on the tube will find a way of sharing their pitiful brand of R&B with everyone.
If sporting some over-ear cans will ruin your hair then perhaps a glance over at the in-ear MDR-EX series will suit. The MDR-EX range has seven models so pretty much something for all.
The top of the EX buds is the MDR-EX1000 which features a that Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) film diaphragm tech and a 16mm driver unit and uses the same cord as the EX1000. The earphoneâ€™s slim magnesium housing, according to the marketing stuff, reduces weight for comfortable wear, while damping unwanted resonance to deliver exceptionally smooth bass and clear mid-high frequencies.
The entire new Sony personal audio range will hit the shops this month – prices have yet to be confirmed.
I am eager to try these new headphones and earphones, especially the MDR-Z1000 as I’m spending more and more time in the studio these days 😉
