  • Summary: Great headphones, great highs and lows, mids are a little weak compared to the two, but nothing serious. Great sound quality, and really make DnB/IDM shine
  • Pros: These things get low. Real low, and they sound great. The bass is very intense, but not too overwhelming if you adjust equalizers, but why wouldn't you want bass if you're buying these headphones? They are large, but very comfortable. You could probably do a barrel roll without them coming off of...
  • Cons: The cord is rather short, and I've found one song that seemed to drop below the low frequency threshold within the first 5 minutes of listening. But, it could also be that they didn't actually have a bass line where I expected one... who knows

Excellent choice for Headphones

Johnny M., Newegg
30 July 2011
  • Summary: - I listen to some higher freq genres such as orchestra from time to time, and thats why I wanted a higher freq responding head sets. IF YOU WANT HEADPHONES THAT DOES THE JOB the XMB300 does the job perfectly, I tried some of them out at my local Sony Style store, and thats how I fell in love with...
  • Pros: The Headphones... how should I start, they are excellent I will put it out like that, and heres why: -The headphones are comfortable, I wore them for 3 hours straight and it was still comfortable -The build quality is very good as well, no cutting corners such as plastic being used. And the best ...
  • Cons: I wont take any eggs off of these pointers because I AM SATISFIED with these headphones, but I will still point these out... - The headphones can get a bit annoying when you are sweating alot... when the temperature was around the 90's with no AC on at home (saving money XD ) the pads do collect ...

Sony MDR-XB700 Headphones

Fuscero, ReviewStream
10 April 2010
  • Excerpt: These are real nice pair of headphones and I’ve been really pleased with my experience with them so far. The only thing I can complain about is that they are so large that they’re not really leave-the-house friendly. But the thing is, you know what you’re getting into when …

brilliant

  • Summary: I currently have AKG k450, which in terms of sound quality and cost is one of the best. I bought the XB700 and immediately felt a more resonant and deeper bass when listening to music. Ever since buying these, my AKGs have been made redundant and I only use them for travelling now.

  • Summary: I live in Spain and I couldn't find these headphones for less than 80€ (shipment costs not included). So the price was awesome and so was the customer service imo. I'm not an audiophile and just recently got inmersed in the world of headphones, however, I did an exhaustive research of headphone...

Excellent product, only one small problem (Cable is too short)

SkullBlade, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: From a sound quality point of view, these headphones are excellent. They are a perfect match for my PC's Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card. They pump out huge amounts of bass. On songs that are not suited for bass, a simple turning down the bass slider for on my sound card and this does the job...

Great Cans

  • Summary: I bought these headphones mainly because my MDR-V700DJ is.. rubbish, and they are designed for bass-heavy stuff (obviously) After they arrived, i immediately (and carefully) opened the packaging, took out the headphones... and i was somewhat startled with their size, i was expecting big..

A great pair of headphones.

  • Summary: Many people are put off by the phrase 'value for money' as they presume the product it self is not particularity fantastic. However with these headphones you receive more than value for money as long as you know what your looking for.

Great all-round headphones

Alan Starkie, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • Summary: I'll try not to repeat what others have said. I just received these headphones to replace a set of Bose on-ear headphones that have always distorted at higher levels. These Sony headphones are comfortable, feel fairly light and sound good straight out of the box.
