Summary: Having tried the XB300s & 500s, this being the next one up in the range of bass oreientated headphones by Sony led me to expected it to have even more of a punch when listening to music and gaming. However the large space between the speaker and your ear actually reduces the effect of the extreemly large driver inside so you end up getting less bass on these than on the cheaper XB500s. However it is not all about bass.
Summary: I've had these headphones just over a year now and still love them! I'm not exactly an audiophile but I am rather particular about the headphones and earphones I attach to my ears. I have varied tastes in music but I usually stick to classical, rock, r&b, pop and dance depending on my mood and environment. I also watch a lot of TV and movies with headphones.
Summary: The first thing you may notice on purchasing this item is how large it is, and this is a good thing because most of its size is down to ear padding - which means - as you might expect: extra comfort. The looks are very pleasing; a high tech brush steel look - sure to catch an eye or two. The sound has lots of muscle i.e bass..
Summary: I cannot praise Sony enough for producing such a wonderful pair of cans at such a price level. Indeed very articulate sound right away from the start. Real deep bass unmatched by my expensive double priced Sen's HD595 and the superior triple priced Pioneer HDJ-2000. Looks wise, is not that appealing if planning to leave the sanctuary of your home. Also not that good in warm/hot summer months, as even in winter they will act effectively as ear muffs.
Summary: The size of these headphones is really impressive. At first I thought how on earth one is able to keep them on your head for a long time? But that was no problem, because they fit very nicely and they are not that heavy too. The king size cushioning does it's job, after a longer time wearing these you feel no discomfort. And the carrying pouch is very nice too. The cable is on a short side, but I used the headphones with my laptop, so it's just perfect to me.
Cooliest Styled Headphones, but no good for the tube.

Summary: They look the nuts"! they are the best looking headphone ever. They fit very well and are very, very comfortable. So comfortable that i was able to fall asleep listening to them. They didn't press too hard nor too loose. You HAVE TO set the graphic equalizers to off or flat, as the sound quality is excellent and only the pure sound will do. With pure bass and clear sounding mid and treble they sound awesome.
Summary: Schade, eigentlich würde ich gerne das deutsche Produkt unterstützen. Ich bin keiner, der zusätzlich zu den Kopfhörern noch 300 Euro für zusätzliches Musik-Equipment investiert, um das letzte Quäntchen Realismus aus der Musik zu quetschen. Ich höre einfach gerne gute Musik. Bedeutet für mich, meistens klassischer Trance, Goa-Ambient und ganz selten ein wenig Klassik. Rock gar nicht. Als direkten Vergleich hab ich den Beyerdynamics DT 990 Pro hier neben mir liegen.
