Sony MDR-MV1 – an immersive Open-Back Monitor Headphones for Spatial Sound Creation

Sony earlier this week announced the MDR-MV1 Reference Monitor Headphones. Designed for professional sound engineers and music creators, the headphones seek to combine sound quality with long-lasting wear and reliability. The headphones’ open-back design enables accurate reproduction of a wide sound field, making them suitable for mixing and mastering immersive spatial sounds, such as 360 Reality Audio and in Hi-Res Stereo.

Engineered with comfort in mind, the MDR-MV1 feature breathable earpads and is intentionally lightweight, soft and fitted to provide a pleasant wearing experience, even after hours of use.

The headphones’ uniquely developed 40 mm Dynamic Driver units provide ultra-wideband playback between 5 Hz – 80 kHz and naturally high frequencies, designed to facilitate professionals to capture localisation, spaciousness and detailed changes in sound processing.

The open-back structure of the headphones reduces internally reflected sounds and eliminates acoustic resonances while accurately reproducing natural, rich spatial information and sounds. These robust features support their use in professional mixing and mastering environments, offering extended spatial sound reproducibility and accurate sound object positioning within a 360-degree space, and clear, hi-resolution, nuanced sound with a super-wide frequency range and precise soundstage while accommodating audio engineers’ highest standards.

The headphones come with a high-quality replaceable, detachable cable with machined aluminium connectors and a stereo mini-jack adapter for easy use in a professional setting.

The MDR-MV1 will be available at Sony Stores and authorised dealers in Singapore from May 2023 at a retail price of SGD 539, including GST.
