The sleek design and Sony's choice of materials feel luxurious. You can rest the pads flat against your clavicles when not wearing the headphones.
The headphones deliver excellent audio performance all the way from the bass through the midrange and the treble.
Android phone owners can use the free SmartKey app to customize the button controls.
At $300, the price is somewhat steep for a product that lacks Bluetooth and noise canceling capabilities.

The MDR-1A premium headphones from Sony come with two cables--an audio cable and an inline mic/remote cable--and a carry pouch. You can expect a fit that feels cushy and deluxe.
