Customer Reviews of Sony MDR-XB500 40mm XB Diaphragm Driver Extra Bass Headphones
Use them almost daily!3/21/2013
We purchased these because we have an in-house video studio and needed high quality headphones without the over-priced logo on the side. Sure you could spend 4x as much but the quality are very good for the low price-tag that is attached. A great buy and we use them very often and they have held up well so far! Great job!
The ear cups are (almost comically) enormous but extremely comfortable and do a great job isolating sound. Very, very comfortable.
The first thing you notice when you put them on is how comfortable they are. They're so squishy! Also, they fit all the way around your ears. Then when you begin listening to them, you notice the insane clarity. They are designed to handle 4-24,000 Hz, so you hear every frequency. The bass (which is what I bought them for) is amazing !
Excellent Sony headphones6/3/2012
Deep well extended bass, rather clear sound, comfort. The sound quality is excellent, and they are the best looking headphones out there, but they snap way to easily.
They fit snug over yours ears and not heavy at all. The bass performance is fantastic, better than other powered headphones I've tried which I think distort the sound and balance of the music. Plus there are no batteries to replace and no batteries to make the headphones heavier.
The comfort level on these can't even be compared to any other headphones. They wrap around your ear in a super soft cushion. There is no pressure anywhere on your head unlike some that either chaff your ear or cause pressure on your head.
The sound quality is outstanding. Deep, rich, undistorted bass and crisp clear mid and high tones. Very surprising for the price.
