Wall of Shame (coming soon)
Sunday, September 29, 2013
MDR-R10, also known as the king of headphones to SONY enthusiasts, debuts in 1988. And the economic downgraded version, MDR-CD3000, follows right after along with other introductory models. These are known as the first generation CD series.
Starting from CD1000, which has a pair of bio-cellulose drivers within, the introductory models of the first generation CD-series have very similar sound signature from one another. And CD950 is no exception. While its appearance is almost identical to CD1000(except with its ear cushion material), an amorphous diamond-absorpt diaphragm is implemented instead.
CON: Lack of bass & high distortion.
ON SECOND THOUGHT #1: Sony MDR-CD950's frequency response is nowhere close to the reference target suggested by Harman International.
