Great but buy extra buds.

Mr. M. P. Bell "Martin", Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: > Excellent sound. > Have lasted me 2 years and there is no degradation in quality of sound nor physical quality. > Love the design touches: -> left ear phone is identified through touch so no need to look at them before putting on. -> cable and phones are robust and resists tangling. Cons: > Have had to buy new buds twice as they come off and get lost rather easily.

A steal for their price.

  • Summary: These are intended to be bassy headphones, so if you're an audiophile, i'd stay away from these for a start. When I bought them, I was expecting the mids and highs to be drowned out slightly due to the increase in bass, and this is exactly what you will get. However, the brilliant thing about these earphones is unlike other 'bass' earphones, the mids and highs are still handled perfectly, and the bass is crisp and clear, not muffled and does NOT distort any part of the...

Nice quality, stylish.

  • Summary: I have been using these earphones for a while now and am very happy with them. Sound quality is very good, nice bass, good noise isolation with the snug fit. The outer part is quite large but to me this is not a problem at all. I have had no issues with fitment and am surprised so many people have said they have. To me they fit as well or better than any other earphone I have used before. The cable is flat, not round.

Good bass but expensive!

  • Summary: These headphones are damn great for bass and are pretty stylish (though not to everyone's taste). The also block out outside noise quite well. The quality of the build is really good with some nice features such as thin flat wires that keep tangling to a minimum. Keep in mind though I've only had the headphones for a month now and build problems don't tend to show that fast.

AWESOME but loose

  • Summary: very good head phones, good looking, really good Bass, you don't have to crank the volume up to get the lows. One thing that keeps it from 5 stars is that it doesn't like to stay in your ear(probably of the bass ;^)). but i would take the sound quality over having to managing it to keep in ears. Over all really good head phone.

Good replacement for EX71s

  • Summary: I've been using a pair of Sony MDR-EX71SLB Fontopia Headphones - Black headphones for years and they've lasted really well. I've been reluctant to replace them as the sound reproduction through them was literally (and I realy do mean literally) unbelievable for something so small and neat. My understanding of the physics of audio tells me that it should not be possible to reproduce bass so low and defined with a tiny driver like this.

Sony MDRXB40EX, More Bass....YES!

lilman777 "Dave", Amazon
23 May 2009
  • Summary: Firstly I am no audio expert, but these earphones are the best that I have come across for bass. I listen to a lot of R&B/Funky House/Drum & Bass etc & have tried various other earphones with little or no success, but with the XB40's I wasn't disappointed. The only other thing I was worried about was how it would sit in my ear, from the look of it not very comfortable, but to my surprise after changing the medium ear buds to the smaller ones it fitted quite well, by that...

  • Excerpt: Взял и радуюсь. Цена терпимая и испортить их не особо жалко. Вот бы эти (Denon AH-NC600) столько же стоили :)
  • Pros: Отлично подходят для прослушивания танцевальной-электронной музыки! 1) Отличный низы (за остальным придётся лезть в эквалайзер и потанцевать с бубном, но результат этих усилий определённо порадует за эти деньги), 2) отличная сборка, 3) неплохой дизайн.
  • Cons: 1) Всё же ползать в эквалайзер не всем хочется, 2) Выпирают из ушей (внешне смотрится неплохо, но мешаются, если шапки носить), 3) "Прогревать" их всё же надо (звук у них раскрывается через длительное время (как мне показалось), но терпимо), 4) вот амбушюры пришлось подбирать всё же под своё ухо (побольше бы их вариантов в комплект).

Наушники Sony MDR-XB40EX

Constable, video.wikimart.ru
8 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Пользуюсь наушниками уже пять месяцев. Выбирал наушники от заведомо качественного производителя, с широким частотным диапазоном и качественными, глубокими и мощными басами. Хорошая звукоизоляция от внешних шумов. Отлично себя зарекомендовали при прослушивании музыки в метро. Качество воспроизведения звука полностью оправдало ожидания на музыке любых жанров и при просмотре фильмов. Удобный чехол, прочный гибкий кабель. Не рекомендую использовать при зан ...
