Amazing

Bobbie-Jo L., Newegg
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Sony's MDR-XB series are stellar headphones, and the sound quality isn't as crisp as headphones in the 200-400$ range but you get what you pay for, and then some with these. I highly recommend getting these.
  • Pros: The mids, highs and lows are all pretty accurate, I compared these to Solo Beats ( 300 $ ) that are supposedly known for bass, and these wiped the floor with them. The bass isn't overwhelming at default settings but if you adjust the EQ it can be powerful on either end of the spectrum. The cushions are rather large and should be big enough to fit around your entire ear, and they're really comfortable, almost describable as fluffy or squishy. They sound great with acou...
  • Cons: At first they seem a bit heavy if you aren't use to larger headphones, and they're definitely a bit larger but they need to be large to house their 40mm drivers. Sometimes the pressure within them is a bit irritating but that's a very subtle problem. Really though, pros outweigh the cons here.

Sony MDR-XB500 Headphones

Fuscero, REVIEW STREAM
23 February 2011
  • Excerpt: These headphones retail for about 50 bucks and you can get it for cheaper if you shop around. You get an okay pair of headphones for 50 bucks. As for the build quality, it’s a full-on plastic construction. It uses metal hinges that slide up and down.

Dr.P, epinions.com

  • Summary: If you are looking for a versatile set of headphones, pass these up. I would only recommend them for rap, hip hop, or dance music, but that is about all.
  • Pros: These headphones sound good for dance music, rap, and hip hop.
  • Cons: They do not sound very good for most other types of music.

Comfy and durable headphone with amazing sound quality

5 February 2014
  • Summary: I have had these headphones for just about 2 years now, absolutely no problems with them and the sound quality is amazing for the price. The padding on the top of the headphones makes it comfortable to wear for hours on end, and the headphone cushions are extremely comfortable too. The sleek adjustable length will fit any size head. I use these headphones at home as they are quite large, but they still fit into travel bags and my backpack well.

Great Headphones

DS306, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: I have used these headphones for a few years and they worked perfectly all that time. They are amazing if you like bass, to me and some of my friends these are better than beats for the fact that they provide really nice, powerful bass. But it doesn't provide great clarity on the higher notes.

Bassy, comfy, but not great sound quality.

S31, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought these on the strength of wearing them in a shop and hearing them play some generic easy-listening music that I hadn't heard before. The strong bass and comfy feel convinced me to give them a go, but upon plugging them in to my own music players they were a little disappointing. The sound is pretty lacklustre with detail and tone sacrificed to feed the bass.
