Summary: I have some fairly high quality hi fi including some £270 Sony headphones so I feel I am able to comment reasonably objectively about these more modestly priced headphones having also often tried more and less expensive ones of a variety of makes in shops.
Summary: Sony has done a fantastic job here! one of the best earphones I have ever bought. these headphones get a bad rep in some reviews saying the bass is to much. its NOT and if it is to much for you personally youse your EQ to turn down the bass lol.
Summary: Bought these as my first pair of headphones thanks to the huge emphasis on bass as I'm a bit of a bass freak! I have to say that these have definitely surprised me as to how much bass they can actually squeeze in, everything I've thrown at them which sometimes make my Creative earphones distort,...
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.
