    Every note, every nuance.

    The newly developed diaphragm with Magnesium dome and Liquid Crystal Polymer edge enables up to 120kHz playback in High Resolution Audio. The result is unparalleled sound purity and precision.

    Pure sound, no added noise

    Pure sound, no added noise

    Filtering out the unnecessary with resonance-free housing. A special acoustic filter controls the air resistance and eliminates any reverberations produced by driver movement, so that only clean, crisp frequencies get through. 

    Ergonomic sheepskin earpads 

    Ergonomic sheepskin earpads 

    The ergonomically crafted headphones are designed to comfortably encase your head in sound; preventing any from leaking and effectively delivering powerful lows. The genuine sheepskin ear pads cushion your ears in luxurious softness. 

    Enfolding design structure

    Enfolding design structure

    The enfolding design is tailored to wrap around the ear, sealing music in and keeping distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears for the subtlest of sounds.

    Titanium & leather headband 

    Titanium & leather headband 

    Flexible and light, yet durable, for a more natural over ear fit. Beta titanium has high elasticity which will return to its original shape even when bent. Genuine leather adds sturdiness and comfort.

    Long-wear comfort optimised

    Long-wear comfort optimised

    The titanium alloy headband is both flexible and light, for all day wearing. You'll barely know they're there.

    Aluminium-coated LCP edge diaphragm with Magnesium dome for more precision

    Aluminium-coated LCP edge diaphragm with Magnesium dome for more precision

    The Magnesium dome diaphragm propagates vibrations generated from the voice coil to the dome part, and achieves the reproduction of sound in the super-high frequency range. The combination of multiple high internal loss materials leads to less sound coloration and clear sound.

    Hard case for storage

    Hard case for storage

    The headphones and accompanying cables come presented in a stylish storage case, with separated compartments and a luxury satin lining. 

    4.4Φ balanced connection cable

    4.4Φ balanced connection cable

    The newly developed 4.4Φ balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals, while minimising signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration. The result is smoother high frequencies and superior sound quality.

    Silver-coated oxygen-free copper

    Silver-coated oxygen-free copper

    The MDR-Z1R uses silver-coated oxygen-free copper cables, designed to minimise resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail and smoother treble sounds.
