When people think of “high-end” headphones these days, your average consumer is most likely going to think of Beats by Dre, especially since Apple acquired the company in May for just under $3 billion. But while Beats headphones aren’t bad in terms of quality, you’ll seldom find them at the top of a true audiophile’s list of favourites.
For that you need to go up in price and look at brands that have been injecting audio straight into your ears for decades. To prove this, Sony sent us its MDR-1R model, a $300 pair of headphones the company believes are the best bang for one’s buck. (Spoiler alert: we’re inclined to agree.) Via techvibes.com
