Sony MDR-1ADAC (black) headphones Product no.: 9000-0013-6868 Warranty period: This product comes with a 3-year warranty.


These over-ear Sony MDR-1ADAC headphones convert digital signals from your laptop, smartphone or tablet into analogue output. The comfortable earpieces house a high-grade amplifier and a digital-analogue converter. As the MDR-1ADACs handle all of these processes themselves, your music is reproduced in an exceptionally detailed and interference-free fashion, even at a high sound level. The audio quality is no longer restricted by analogue cabling or relatively cheap audio chips and amplifiers in tablets, laptops and smartphones. This edition of the Sony MDR-1ADAC headphones has a stylish black finish.

MDR-1ADAC: sound quality

The MDR-1ADAC headphones are not only equipped with a high-grade built-in amplifier, their drivers (the speakers of your headphones) are of a high quality as well, ensuring excellent audio reproduction. Made of liquid crystal polymer, these sensitive drivers deliver a high level of detail and clarity. Distortion in heavy bass tones is reduced by the controlled beat response of the headphones. With the MDR-1ADACs you can listen to your music using any device of your choosing. Use the accessory USB cable for your laptop or desktop computer, and the Lightning cable for the latest iPhone, iPod and iPad models.Two other cables are also included, which will fit smartphones with a USB-micro connector and modern Sony Walkmans.

Recharging and accessories

The amplifier and converter of the MDR-1ADAC headphones are driven by a built-in battery that lasts for up to eight consecutive hours. In other words, you're able to enjoy your playlists for hours on end. The battery can easily be charged by connecting one end of the included USB cable to the Charge input of the headphones, and the other end to the USB port of, for instance, your laptop. In addition to the necessary cables, the Sony MDR-1ADAC headphones come with a practical carry case. Thanks to their foldable design, the headphones fit effortlessly into your bag.
