Excerpt: Pros: The Look - I love the modern retro look of these headphones. The brown and black just works.Comfort - These are so soft on the ears. I love the new design of the padding. The bass - it booms! But everything else sounds good too.Cons: Construction - they just feel a bit flimsy. I don't know how long these will last, but for $ I still think these are worth itSize - Even at the smallest adjusted size these are a bit big on me.
Excerpt: I'm not a specialist in sound. I don't have other extra bass headphone. I'm very happy with this product. Sony is one of the most famous brand about many products. I recomend this headphone for everyone.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: Just got these yesterday after spending a long time at the store. After listening to and trying on lots of different pairs, I bought a $50 set of Sennheisers. They didn't even come close. I got these, brought them home, and fell in love. So happy with them so far...just need to get them out in a high-noise environment to see how they block out sound. They come with a big fancy box; would have been nice if they'd spent that money on a carrying bag. Otherwise, I love 'em.
Pros: Extra Bass, Good sound isolation, Layers Of Sound, Very Comfortable, Very lightweight
Cons: Cord is short, Mids Are Too High, No carrying bag
Summary: This is not an all-purpose headphone. Initially, I loved the extra-bass aspect. After buying the AKG Q460, however, it was obvious the Sony lacked clarity in the mid-range. But we must give the MDR-XB600 its due. With certain kinds of music this headphone is outstanding. Listening again to Jan Hammer's jazz/electronica I was very impressed. And so it goes. This Sony doesn't compliment a lot of other genres, like rock opera, pop, classical or movie dialogue sound tracks.
Summary: This is a great set of headphones, and they're quite economical as well which I like a lot. Just keep in mind though that these are not all too suitable for monitoring/studio use since they do colour the sound with extra bass. They are great for electronic music and anything bass heavy really which is the reason I bought them.
One of the most comfortable headphones I have ever used.

Summary: It has been around 3 months since I own one of these, and I must say they are super soft on your ears, no discomfort whatsoever, they can be worn for hours. This was an issue I had with my previous JVC and beats headphones. The sound quality is really clear with quite a punch in terms of bass (I am no audiophile). This comes in a solid packaging box, I was pleased by that. The cable is 1.2m, which is perfectly what I needed (I use it with a laptop).
