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.
Excerpt: Hey there guys and girls, 1st review in a while, bin mad busy with studies and work! Anyway, I'm gonna do a quick review on my SONY XB500 headphones. I've had these headphones for two years now and they are my second pair.
Pros: great bass, very comfortable, durable and quality build
Cons: wire a little short, some people think they are too big (idon't care)
Summary: The Most Comfy Headphones EVER!! Not massive over the ear, but cover them adequately. Look cool, sound qualities great, good bass! Block out sound when playing music. Only cons: When played really loud (which i dont do anyway) they leak sound abit. Your ears may get quite hot after abit.
Summary: The Good: Phenomenally comfortable, leather-esque pads that are like a big hug for your ears and a padded headband-thingy Reasonable sound isolation for the user Despite the focus on bass these will play all music beautifully and will encourage you to listen to all of your old favourites...
Summary: Easily the best headphones I have owned. I had a pair of sennhieser closed back 202s before these, the sound quality dropped quickly and were very uncomfortable after a few hours of wearing them.
Summary: I've bought these for my sister for when she goes to university & is without her sound system, & I'm not sure if she will like these or not! Sound: The sound is ridiculously bassy! I mean, so much bass & then some! If you like bass, then these will be for you!
Summary: I bought these headphones with my birthday money, not many shops were selling them because they are almost 2 years old, but don't let that put you off, these are simply amazing. When I first used these headphones I thought the sound was "good" but I was so wrong, you have to let them "burn in" for...
Summary: I enjoy using these Sony headphones every single day now, the quality of the sound produced from the larger 40mm drivers is pretty amazing, each sound seems to have it's own little space in your ears.
