Fantastic headphones! Superb bass and amazing sound!
20 October 2012
Summary: I bought these headphones last month and in the time I've used them, I've been extremely impressed by the sound quality they produce. The base is superb, but the mids and trebles are just as brilliant with crisp and clear vocals. I listen to a selection of artists such as Richard Marx and Madonna and the tones are beautiful hearing just about every sound possible.
Summary: I bought these recently to replace my Sony earbuds after they died, and am I glad I did. If you read my other review, you will see I do like a lot of bass, so these sounded perfect for me, in both senses of the word. First impressions are that the build quality is excellent. It retains the flat anti-tangle cable of other Sony headphones, and the metal and plastic construction feels solid.
Pros: Fantastic bass, comfortable, well built, great value.
Cons: Can annoy people around you, can make your ears warm.
Summary: I was hesitating whether to buy Sony or Sennheiser headphones, but have to say I'm very impressed. That is probably the best headphones I've ever bought (in that price range). The bass is outstanding, it's not gona turn your brains to mush though but is enough to surprise you in a pleasant way. Overall very satisfied, would very much recommend.
Summary: hey guys!! I just received my parcel from Amazon in the early morning,, the delivery was fast and unbelievable, I was looking on the internet for these headphones for around three months, I read all reviews and watched hundreds of videos on the YouTube regarding sony mdr xb500. so its time to give these monsters a substantial rating , first of all the build quality of these headphones is quite sophisticated , they are very durable, good looking and robust,.
Summary: I have been using these headphones for over a month and I am going to give a go at reviewing them as as they have not been review already. Design/Comfort These headphones are very big and that is good and bad depending how you look at it but i will mention the bad first. These headphones are large and I have only used them for home listening rather than taking them out the house as i would have to store them in a bag due to the size.
Summary: After owning various pairs of headphone including the bose quiet compfort headphones. I thought this time around I'll try and find a cheaper pair that sound just as good or better.Well it looks like i have deffinitly found that in the sony. They handle all genres of music perfectly Rock,Dance and pop and others with perfection. Every note are all in the right places i feel like iam now listening to music the way it was sopposed to sound.
Excerpt: "...a quick review on my SONY XB500 headphones. I've had these headphones for two years now and they are my second pair. I must say that, they are the second pair because i showed them to a friend, who straight after trying them out for the first time wanted to buy them off me! So I let him have em for a good price ( mainly 'cause I knew i could get em at a good price again).hink the In my honest opinion, I think the XB500's are the best headphones on ...
