QuestionI’m wondering why the other Sony headphone WH1000XM3 are so much popular than these? Aren’t these higher quality higher resolution audio headphones from Sony over the WH1000XM3???
- Answer The speakers in these and in the WH1000XM3’s are actually the same. The difference is that in the MDR-1AM2, your device’s amp powers the speakers directly, vs the amp inside the WH1000XM3. This ends up making the MDR-1AM2 set sound better, cleaner, and more balanced. However, know your market. These are designed for audiophiles, not general consumers. Most people willing to spend $300 will only do so on headphones with Bluetooth, active noise cancellation, and settings in an equalizer app and such. Thus, making the WH1000XM3’s more popular.
QuestionI want the old school headphones where You use just plug into your stereo and be happy with that sound. Are these headphones what I need, I dont6 want to do the wireless thing. I hate technology.
- Answer No. These are not your headphones. Don't make the same mistake I did. While these are great sounding headphones, they are really made for phones/tablets/laptops. Sony doesn't recommend using a 1/8" adapter for pro audio equipment/stereo receivers. If I did it again, I'd get the Sony MDR7506 old school, studio tested headphones. Good luck.
QuestionDoes this headphone come with a 6.35mm jack? And if not, if I use an adaptor, will the sounds quality, HZ, imedence etc be diminished? I will be using these headphones for a connection to my digital piano and quality digital pipe organ.
- Answer No they do not. Included cables are 3.5mm 4 pole to 3.5mm 4 pole angled with an inline mic and 3.5mm 4 pole to 4.4 pentacon. If you get an adapter or cable that’s made properly there will be no decrease in fidelity. There is no inline volume adjustment in any of the cables so you will have to adjust through your instruments or plan on getting a DAC to put inline if you need volume adjustments not provided by your instruments.
- Answer Bella, yes if your speakers have a headphone jack. BTW, these headphones are the best I've owned, highly recommended.
- Answer Hi, offroader! We cannot guarantee its full operation because these headphones are specifically built for smartphones. We recommend WH-RF400 Wireless Home Theater Headphones. https://www.sony.com/electronics/headband-headphones/wh-rf400 Happy to help, David

QuestionWhat is the frequency range? Impedance? Sensitivity? Can cable be swapped out for a 16 foot cable?
- Answer All that is in the spects. But is 5hz to 100khz 16ohms 3.5 to 3.5 cable and 4.4 balanced to 3.5
QuestionAre these headphones more comfortable than the sony wh-1000xm3? The wh-1000xm3 feel very tight on my head.
- Answer I don’t have the wh-1000xm3’s and comfort is a fairly subjective thing. However the clamping force on these is pretty linear and fairly light. I’ve worn them 4-6 hours at a time without any discomfort. The headphones themselves are fairly light as well which also tends to make them more comfortable. They don’t have active noise canceling, but they are extremely good at isolation overall you won’t hear much from the outside world that isn’t extremely loud.
