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: These are absolutely gorgeous! They feel so soft and comfortable and the sound is great. What I also wanted and which these delivered were they way the wiring is encased in the flat style covering.
Summary: I've now owned the 300 and the 700, now settled on these 500s. great sound and great bass, but do not use it on out in public, not that there to big, but the noise leaks out BIG TIME! It will make you very very unpopular on the trains. All are very very very comfortable.
Summary: Separation between different frequencies is excellent, I was really expecting poor performance reading the reviews here. But no. In fact they capture highs I hadn't heard before! Bass-lines are excellently recreated and then some.
Put your Dr. Dre beats down... and try these for size!!!

Summary: Well first of all i would like to state that these headphones are bassy, in fact they are very bassy... however this is not necessarily a bad thing because it adds so much to the sound and over all feel of the music.
Summary: I purchased these as a replacement for my surround system at home for when I'm at uni. I absolutely love them. Absolutely great for lounging around in before a night out, playing your favourite tunes on 'em to get you in the party mood. The Good: The bass is bouncy, deep and has great depth.
Summary: I have been using some other (non-extra bass) Hi-Fi style Sony headphones for the past few years and have replaced them every time they have broken, and for my ipod i use earbud headphones, but these are the best sonding Hi-Fi style (over the head) ones i have ever owned - by a long shot.
