Welcome to Headphone Scout, the Ultimate Database of Headphones

Sony MDR-Z1R

What's in the box

  • Hard case for storage
  • 3m stereo mini (3.5mm) cable (silver-coated OFC strands, gold-plated plug) with 1/4″ adapter
  • 1.2m balanced connection cable (silver-coated OFC strands, L-shaped gold-plated plug)


I would wholeheartedly recommend this headphone to anyone, seeing as how it represents a sort of end game in high end audio equipment. Paired with the ZH1ES amp, you really don’t need anything else. This is Sony’s flagship for a reason.
