Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 613.624.5383 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

Image Feature

Every note, every nuance.

The newly developed diaphragm with magnesium dome and liquid crystal polymer edge enables up to 120 kHz playback in High Resolution Audio. The result is unparalleled sound purity and precision.

Image Feature

Pure sound, no added noise

Filtering out the unnecessary with resonance-free housing. A special acoustic filter controls the air resistance and eliminates any reverberations produced by driver movement, so that only clean, crisp frequencies get through.

Image Feature

Ergonomic sheepskin earpads

The ergonomically crafted headphones are designed to comfortably encase your head in sound, preventing any from leaking and effectively delivering powerful lows. The genuine sheepskin ear pads cushion your ears in luxurious softness.

Image Feature

Enfolding design structure

The enfolding design is tailored to wrap around the ear, sealing music in and keeping distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears for the subtlest of sounds.

Image Feature

Titanium & leather headband

Flexible and light, yet durable, for a more natural over-ear fit. Beta titanium has high elasticity, which will return to its original shape even when bent. Genuine leather adds sturdiness and comfort.

Image Feature

Long-wear comfort optimized

The titanium alloy headband is both flexible and light, for all-day wearing. You'll barely know they're there.

Image Feature

Aluminium-coated LCP edge diaphragm with magnesium dome for greater precision

The magnesium dome diaphragm propagates vibrations generated from the voice coil to the dome part, and achieves reproduction of sound in the super-high frequency range. The combination of multiple high internal loss materials leads to less sound colouration and clear sound.

Image Feature

Hard case for storage

The headphones and accompanying cables come presented in a stylish storage case, with separated compartments and a luxury satin lining.

Image Feature

4.4-mm balanced connection cable

The newly developed 4.4-mm balanced connection cable separates left and right sound signals, while minimizing signal transmission loss and resulting sound deterioration. The result is smoother high frequencies and superior sound quality.

Image Feature

Silver-coated oxygen-free copper

The MDR-Z1R uses silver-coated oxygen-free copper cables, designed to minimize resistance and signal-transmission loss. The result is less sound degradation, finer detail and smoother treble sounds.

Image Feature

Expertly crafted in Japan

Sony products made in Japan are synonymous with absolute quality and performance, and the MDR-Z1R headphones are no exception. They are lovingly crafted with only the finest components and manufacturing techniques, resulting in exceptional sound quality.

TA-ZH1ES compatible for ultimate sound

Do your headphones and your music justice with the TA-ZH1ES Signature Series stationary amp, the world's first to feature an innovative analog feed-forward full digital amplifier for purer, more responsive sound. It supports PCM 32-bit/384-kHz and DSD 11.2-MHz sound formats, as well as balanced and unbalanced connections.
