Excerpt: These closed headphones will run for your money. They have extremely good balance, and their comfort is definitely taken part of the design of these headphones. The Sony MDR-XB500 is something I would recommend for someone, at least for the entry level of earphones that want to experience closed headphones.
Excerpt: These Sony headphones are great quality for the price. I bought this for $55 last year at FYE music store. I think the original price was almost $80. The sound quality is amazing very clear and crisp. The bass is just fantastic. It makes you get lost in your music. No matter what music you are playing it definitely gives a nice rich sound without the ruffled sound if the volume is up too high. The ear cups are very comfortable that fits well over the earlobes.
