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.
Summary: When I first read reviews about this product before I bought it, people usually said that the base was too overwhelming. I disagree completely because I love bass! and also I think it depends on the EQ.
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: The Bass is astounding. If you are into Rock, Pop etc. You need to run these Cans on a flat or low bass eq. I found the bass most dominant in the midrange frequency which can make them sound "muffled" like other reviewers have found.
Summary: Just got these headphones through my door today, really good for lovers of the Drum and Bass or Dubstep music genre. Was hoping the overall sound would be quite clear but the bass really does take over, but I guess you get what you pay for!
