Home/studio-style closed over-ear headphones that come with a detachable audio cable with built-in mic and answer/music player control button for iPhone/iPod/iPad, and smartphone use, a detachable balanced audio cable, and a carrying pouch.
The Sony MDR-1AM2 home/studio-style headphones have a closed over-ear design. These cellphone-centric headphones have a detachable 46-inch audio cable with a modified stereo 4-contact mini-plug that works with iPods, iPads, iPhones, and some cellphones, but that may not be compatible with other audio devices. The cable has an inline remote that features a music player function and call connect/disconnect control and a built-in microphone. Additional features include earcups that swivel to flat for ease of storage/transport. The MDR-1AM2 also comes with a carrying pouch and an alternate detachable 46-inch long balanced audio cable with a 4.4mm 5-contact plug for use with the balanced output jacks found on some Hi-Resolution music players. It is covered by a 12-month warranty.
Plug typeThe type of connection at the end of the audio cord, which will be plugged into the source component. Most have 1/8-inch standard (3-contact) "mini" jacks that fit portable devices. Models intended for use with newer iPod, iPhone, and some Blackberry smartphones, that have integrated microphones, audio player controls, and call connect/disconnect controls use a 1/8-inch 4-conductor mini jack. The audio function of models with 4-conductor mini jacks may not work properly or consistently with non-iPod/iPhone devices.
