Studio Monitor Sound for Mixing and Mastering
  • Supports mixing and mastering of immersive/spatial and stereo sound with high-resolution capability
  • Frequency response from 5 Hz to 80 kHz, with superbly accurate high-resolution and well-balanced sound, nearly identical to a speaker-based production environment
Carefully Tuned Open-Back Acoustic Structure
  • Headphone does not generate inherent reflected sound within the housing, making it well suited for spatial and stereo sound signal processing
  • Accurately reproduces the reverberant characteristics of virtual spaces
Newly Developed HD Driver Units
  • Optimized for an open-back acoustic structure that can reproduce a rich low-frequency range, even in the open housing.
  • Curved corrugation diaphragm shape and tri-duct structure.
Engineered for Comfort
  • Extremely comfortable design, intentionally lightweight, with soft suede earpad material.
  • Secure fitting that provides superior comfort and breathability for extended hours of use.
Detachable Cable
  • Straight 8.2' detachable cable made of high-quality machined aluminum with 1/4" TRS connector
  • Cable securely attaches to left earcup via screw-on 3.5mm connector
  • Short 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter cable included

The Sony MDR-MV1 Reference Monitor Headphones can be used with a case like the SLAPPA HardBody Pro Full-Sized Headphone Case (B&H # SLHP99), the Magma Bags MGA41460 Headphone Case (B&H # MAMGA41460), or the Dekoni Audio Headphone Savior V2 Universal Carrying Case (B&H # DEHPSAVCHV2).

I know it says the earpads are "suede", but checking if that's real suede or synthetic? Thanks
Asked by: Douglas
The earpads on the Sony MDR-MV1 Open-Back Reference Monitor Headphones are made of a soft, synthetic suede-like material, not genuine suede leather.
