Sony MDR-RF895RK: Wireless at its best
March 12, 2018

Check out Sony’s latest headphones.

Sony’s MDR-RF895RK headphones somehow strike a line between price and performance – where it offered a great wireless listening experience all at an affordable price. This, along with its noise reducing and 20-hour battery life instantly makes it one of our favorite wireless headphones.

On the outside, the MDR-RF895RK features a neodymium 40 mm magnets that offers a frequency response from 10 – 22,000 Hz. It also offers a wireless range of up to 100 meters, so you can easily enjoy your music and movies without fear of losing a connection.

The MDR-RF895RK may have noise reduction, but it also offers a Voice mode you can still easily hear conversations without having to remove the headphones.

Controls for the volume are found on the headphone, along with auto-tuning that finds the right frequency for you to connect to get the best wireless connection.

These wireless headphones connect to a base, which also charges it. The wireless base includes a switch where you can switch to three channels to connect to it. The primary input source is a 3.5 mm audio jack, so that can vary from music players to TVs.

For testing, we hooked up the MDR-RF895RK’s base to a TV using a normal audio cable and to a receiver where I’ve hooked up my Spotify playlist. The headphones are amazingly comfortable, and I spent hours on it listening and did not even feel any stress when wearing it for long periods.

Sound output is clear and detailed, which made even better by the noise reduction support. I played Hotel California and you can easily hear the different instruments that play in the background.

The range is also great and is true to what Sony claims, we’ve got a fairly large living room, and the connection didn’t break even when I was sitting on the far end.

The best part about the Sony MDR-RF895RK is its price. The headphones, including the base retail for 419 AED – a great bargain if you’re looking for a pair of headphones that you can use at home.

We Love:

Great sound output

Good battery life

Decent pricing

We Hate:

The base is a little flimsy when headphones are placed on it

Final Rating: 4/5
