Summary: If you have a budget and simply want a good music experience without blowing your bank, buy these. Although I would recommend you buy the headphones higher up in this series such as the X10's. They're really worth the money at around $200. Sorry for any typos. My PlayStation Vita seems to lag when on this website.
Pros: Quick Note: I've had these for 9 months. The Sony XB(extra bass) series headphones were created and advertized to have a bass that is more than the average headphone and they exceeding in doing just that. I myself, originally had the Sony mdr XB400 and they were extraordinary!!! The bass would constantly cause the entire headphone to rattle giving you a feeling that you were sitting with your head in between two amps. I still have them but I felt as though they simply...
Cons: The cons on this item in my opinion are so minor that they hardly put a dent in my overall rating.
Summary: Build quality and looks: These cans look very stylish. I like the silver disk-like design on the top of the earcups, similar to xb90ex. These headphones are quite sturdy, I expect them to be durable.
Comfort: These are among the most comfortable headphones I ever worn. However, the synthetic leather pads could be uncomfortable for some since they could slip in sweat. These have good seal on ear and isolates well.
Sound: Here comes the important bit.
Pros: powerful bass impact, dark sound, soundstage, good treble, comfort, price
Soft pads, great sound, amazing price, fast delivery, all in all...brilliant!

Summary: First impressions seem great. The sound is deep, the pads soft, and at this price it's unavoidable (at time of purchase £30 cheaper than Tesco!!). Originally purchased for a present, no way am I giving these away! The cord is a little shorter than expected, but the gold isn't as garish as the pictures, add to the fact with the free postage and packaging it arrived a day before expected. All in all, brilliant! Now I've gotta find another birthday present..
Summary: Lots of Bass and clear sound..comfortable to wear and looks cool too...great buy...lots of bang for the buck. Folds up nicely so it can fit into smaller bags. cushions supress external noise nicely...and the detangle wires are never a bother!
