  • Summary: Solid built with flat cables and 7 included tips (3 foam S-L, 4 regular XS-L).  No mic so maybe not always the best with a phone (if you need the mic that is).  Attractive without being ostentatious.  $78 and change from an Amazon seller - NOT $26 as this site shows (when I left the review).  Amazon JP has them for around $50, but I don't know the ins and outs of international shipping from Japan.  $50-75.00 feels about right for this set of in-ear headphones.
  • Pros: Bass, Mid and Treble too, 'soundstage', clarity, flat cables, work well w/o Amp
  • Cons: Price, 'Chinese vs Japanese' made, no mic, no warranty outside Japan

  • Summary: Waited a while to write this, wanted to give them some burn in time. Thoughts haven't changed though.   Just wanted to let people know this does not have the best clarity. Don't get me wrong, it's very good, and I think worth the money. The bass is HUGE (provided you get a good seal), with minimal sacrifice of other freqs; I get a little nauseous if I turn it up on something too bass heavy (and I love/need bass).
  • Pros: Huge bass.
  • Cons: Somewhat muddy. CKS-77x better, without sacrifice of bass.

  • Summary: Sony XB90EX Review This is not gonna be super in depth but just a small review and a comparison to the Sony XBA30. Ok so first thing I noticed when unboxing, wow they are big! Definitely much bigger than the 30. Build/Comfort Impressive, very impressive actually, as huge as they are they fit in your ear perfectly because of the way sony shaped them, there is a little area that sticks out on the back which sits in your ear and its made of rubber so its very comfortable.
  • Pros: BASS, Soundstage, very good clarity, Comfort.
  • Cons: Perhaps not as clear or balanced as a BA, perhaps a bit big?

  • Summary: XB90EX Review By - Snyper0012 Accessories: lots and lots of tips. I got 7 pairs of tips, 3 which include foam insulation for better isolation. They are sony hybrid tips which are pretty popular since they are comfortable and isolate well.   Build quality: very solid in my hand. Read its made of abs plastic which is shock resistant, but very light material. I think sony did pretty well making them sturdy.
  • Pros: Everything With The Subbass, Very Good Mid bass, Mid and High Clarity
  • Cons: Somewhat Evident Microphonics, Housing A little Large, A Little DIfficult For Fit To Small Ear Canal Possibly

  • Summary: Awesome headphones, not overwhelming booming bass, but tight accurate and powerful where necessary. Does not overpower highs or mids.

  • Summary: No significant difference compared to MDRXB30EX. Doesn't worth the extra price. It just bulkier.

Not to bad at all

  • Summary: Well they are way better than the new apple headphones for sure! Not to surprised with that one, the highs are mids are surprising really good and clear and crisp. The bass is really good to but honestly not as bassy as i thought they would be, but are still very good for $100!
