The Too Big, Too Light & Too Strong MDR-EX1000 Gentle & Sweet to Ears

Sony has come out with a very large 16 mm dynamic driver. It is almost as big as one can get on any of the IEM. The uniqueness being that its 16 mm driver is using a variety of modified Liquid Crystal Polymer compound, and is the excellent material available for developing the formation of diaphragm out of it, having higher rigidness properties associated with high degree of internal loss as a result of deploying modified liquid crystal polymer, this all are responsible for high accuracy in conversion of signals to the sound waves.

In addition there is “transverse field pressing” technology adopted in the manufacturing process resulting boosting of the magnetic force of 440KJ/m3 yielding very powerful neodymium magnets put to use in the drivers, achieving superior sensitivity to the minutest alteration of signal.
