  • Summary: After several reviews and comparisons, I decided to purchase these bad boys basically cause I love deep bass and loved the looks.   I have them as the exclusive laptop audio output, since the day I received them, my 5.1 speakers burned :D. So I have been using them for all kinds of uses, from youtube videos, 1080p movies and lots of flac audio.   My impressions are not 100% realistic as I think lenovo soundcard must be really crappy.
  • Pros: Bass, Comfort, Soundstage
  • Cons: needs amp

  • Summary: This headphone delivers exacly what master engineers was planning on their tracks, giving you a good punch and balance between all frequencys range for any kind of genre. With a low impedance configuration all SNR can be easy noted from the system used, easy fixed with a good AMP/OP AMP avoiding max level outputs. And like a magik trick all punch's still there giving you a studio or a good tuned night club sound feeling even with this low impedance setup.
  • Pros: Timbre, Frequency range, Isolation, Construction and Comfort.
  • Cons: Low impedance, Value.

Best Pair I've Owned So Far

  • Excerpt: I had the 500s then I heard about these. The design was particularly to my liking. I read reviews stating that these were most refined in the series. The bass is not as crazy as the 500s and details are presented better. These are perfect for most of the music I listen to regularly (EDM). These headphones are great.
  • Pros: Deep Bass, Comfort,
  • Cons: Mids could be better, Availability and Price

  • Summary: I owned the XB 500, 700, and the 1000s. I currently own Denon D7000 and Ultrasone Pro 2900 (so I may compare).. The XB 500 and 700 didn't give me any benefit to my current setup, they sounded muffled, the bass was present but not very clean, they didn't suit my taste. I read a great deal about the 1000s so I took the plunge once they became available in the US. I was really excited to get them cause I thought the ultra huge pad look would be kinda cool and comfortable..
  • Pros: Bass pressure, sound isolation, sound stage
  • Cons: expensive for the audio quality, gimmicky big cups

  • Summary: This is an amazing headphone. 70mm drivers are superb and audition is fantastic. It is different from XB700 in frequency response however sound is very impressive. I wear alternatively the XB1000 and XB700. Are very comfortable even they are very large but are soft, and weight is decent. I can wear them many hours in row without problems. Thank you very much for fast shipping and the excellent condition of the headphones, like new.
