Great deal if on sale

Kevin W., Newegg
1 December 2011
  • Summary: Sometimes the cushions can form kinda like a vacuum with your ear, and it makes it feel exactly like you have to pop your ears. Doesn't happen often but it's strange when it does.
  • Pros: EXTREMELY Comfortable, if you're sick of headphones smashing your ears or whatever, these are perfect. They caress ears like an Italian lover on a moonlit night. Good sound, and a great deal if you get them on sale. At the full price, I would say maybe shop around a little more.
  • Cons: Bass is a little too "extra" out of the box. You'll have to go in and modify your equalizer a little. Not a big deal though. The Cord is pretty short. A lot of people have said it, but it's true. Luckily, the cord length is actually perfect for me the way my stuff is set up. And long cords actual...

Amazing!

  • Summary: Would be nice to have a bass throttle, but I have had no issues with the loudness of the bass, its pretty sweet. :)
  • Pros: Bass is really nice, as is the audio quality. Sony is a good brand all-around, hard to go wrong with their products. These feel like a way more expensive pair of headphones, so you get the bang for your buck (always a plus!) Shipping was on time, as usual with Newegg. VERY COMFORTABLE! A big plus...
  • Cons: Cord is pretty short, which isn't an issue for me as my speakers have an audio-out port, but could be a real pain for those needing more length. But I'm not taking an egg off for that, I knew the cord was going to be short.

Exceedes my expectations

Anonymous, Newegg
9 September 2011
  • Summary: To give you an idea of how much bass these headphone are actually capable of putting out.. I have a Sony S-series MP3 Walkman. I normally have the ClearBass system turn to the max level, I actually had to turn this down by one to two levels (depending on the style of music I was listening to).
  • Pros: Great sound for the price, and sounds better than some headphones twice it's price, Bass is amazing in both volume and in audio quality, Mids. and Highs still sound very good. I am very uptight about having very good sound on a budget. These far exceed my expectation I am not just 100% happy, I'm...
  • Cons: I do wish the cable was maybe an extra 6-8" longer, but this is not really a con, just a personal preference.

Great for casual listener

  • Summary: Overall good bargain
  • Pros: I'd say one of the best Sony headphones I ever had. The price was just right for the quality of sound from this. The ear cups are soft and so there was no pressure on the ears. Decent noise cancelling. Gives that extra deep bass for people who enjoy bass in everything they want to hear. Very comf...
  • Cons: Not really portable, the cord was too short. No stereo adapter to plug in the home theater amplifier. Bass can be overwhelming on some tunes.

  • Summary: Don't hesitate to get these. Worth every penyy ;]]
  • Pros: Music is very clear, Bass is VERY VERY good. I listen to Dubstep which is mostly a bass dominant music genre, and these headphones produce amazing quality bass output !! I'm very impressed !! Also, they are VERY comfortable on the ear. I have them on right now and I barely feel them in around my ...

Amazing Headphones!

  • Summary: I don't have the MDR-XB300's I have the MDR-XB500's. I think that they might have misnamed the headphones, I have never seen the 300s.
  • Pros: Cushion is huge and amazingly soft. I don't know how they did that. Great bass, wide range of frequencies. Nice design.
  • Cons: Uh.. None!

  • Summary: Buy these headphones and you WILL be satisfied. Guaranteed.
  • Pros: Awesome soft earpads. Phenomenal sound, you'll be blown away when you put them on for the REALLY reasonable price. Great bass, but also awesome mids & highs too. Pretty good noise cancellation too for ones not designed specifically for that.
  • Cons: Short cord, sweaty ears. Would be nice if the pads were something not so conducive to my ear sweat.

AMAZING.

  • Summary: I have owned more headphones that I can count trying to find a good pair. But now I never have to search again. These sonys stay on well and cushion your ear great. And the sound is almost at the same level as dr. dre beats, which are 300 dollars. The search stops now.
  • Pros: Very powerful bass, crisp highs, and very comfortable.
  • Cons: N/A.
