Summary: I did not purchase these from Newegg. Had I known they were available on Newegg I would have purchased them here and saved about $30-50 depending on sale prices and such.
Pros: The bass on these headphones is amazing. Going along the lines of the other reviewers, these make the Beats by Dre look like a jar of mayonnaise. The overall quality cannot be beat. Price to performance ratio compared to other brands is unbeatable. They're also the most comfortable headphones I have ever owned. It's like wearing marshmallows filled with clouds on your ears. I use these for music as well as games (BF3, Skyrim, etc.) and I have used them for 3 hours str...
Excerpt: Hands down much better sound and bass than the highly priced Beats headphones. The large ear muffs make wearing them comfortable. They are however not the most sleek and fashionable headphones. They are bulky.
Summary: Was originally hoping to get some Beats headphones but these beat my expectations for the price. I know Best Buy has a display setup in most stores where you can plug in your own music device to try them out and I would definitely recommend trying that also.
Pros: The sound and comfort of these headphones is the best available in the price range. The large (and I mean large) over the ear cushions act as a noise canceler and even without music it blocks most outside noise letting you enjoy just your music and movies. The bass is also out of this world!
Cons: I have noticed a type of "cabin" pressure the large cushions create when wearing them for a longer period but that never gets too bad. Other than that I can't really come up with anything negative.
Summary: Sony's MDR-XB series are stellar headphones, and the sound quality isn't as crisp as headphones in the 200-400$ 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.
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.
