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!
Summary: I recently recieved a pair of these Sony headphones as a Christmas gift and they are immense. Sony say they the inspiration for the ear pads was an old leather sofa and i can see why, they're so comfortable.
Summary: For an amateur who just loves bass sounds, and beautiful designed headphones this really is the way to go. Some people say the bass is overrated with these headphones but it sure is better then all the headphones I ever heard. Delivery (in my case to Belgium) is also very fast.
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 had my headphones come this morning .i plug them in to my mp3 player the sound is great and if you want loud then get the mdrxb500 are the ones to get.i am very happy a great buy for the money a must buy
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: Now when I first decided to buy these headphones I was worried that the mid range of the headphones would be distorted by the sheer Bassyness of them (despite sony's claim otherwise). When I first plugged them in and started listening, there were two things I noticed.
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!
