Sony PFR-V1 review

These unique looking and beautifully engineered Sony headphones stand out. Tested at £299.00

Our Verdict

We’d recommend these for those seeking something different from the norm


  • Delicate and detailed sound, clear treble, rich mid-range, gorgeous engineering


  • Some may not like the looks, odd fit, irritatingly short cord, bass light

These beautifully engineered Sonys are front-firing, so the signal comes at you from the front rather than the sides, as you might have guessed.

Does it work? Well, yes. Some may find the short cord and tricky fit awkward, but the PFR-V1s produce a delicate and detailed sound that's light on bass, but has a clear treble and rich midrange.
