Well, today was the day that I was looking forward to. Today here in Canada was a VIP sales event at the Sony Stores. There were 2 items that I was going to go for. But only came out with 1 item after not able going a salesperson & getting calls from work that distracted me from looking around.
I picked up this Sony MDR-1RBT headphone. This is the Bluetooth version, not the noise cancelling one. The prices for both versions were the same at $299.99. The noise cancelling one was a very good deal. But I prefer wireless.
I was originally going to go for the MDR-10RBT which is newer & cheaper. But it wasn’t on sale. With a $50 price difference ($30 if you include the VIP $20 voucher that I got) & the building being a bit cheaper, the MDR-1RBT is much better. More premium & this was the 1 that I was originally hunting for before the MDR-1oR line came out.
The salesperson said she tried this one & the MDR-10R line & said this one is better. Has better sound quality. When I look at the specs online, they are the same. But I find the 1 series to be more comfortable even though I have heard that this one gets hot overtime. Then after taking the headphones home, I remember that the 1 series doesn’t support a certain codec when I don’t remember what it is & I don’t seem to use it since I don’t know what it is.
I wanted to get another item there, but it was sold out. But I was able get it on backorder & with the sale price. But still a bit iffy on it at the moment. But the salesperson allowed me to cancel out if I change my mind. Got 2 weeks to think it over.
