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.
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: Amazon ure the bomb, delivery on point as always. Right the earphones I think I have good hear for sound.. These earphones are very good the sound quality is clean, clear and well balanced the bass on these are heavy but not over the top. Buy them now .. U won't be disappointed.
Summary: I received the product with an old casing and tag cut..! Yet, the earphone seemed untouched. Without "burning in" i plugged in straight to my 5 year old Cowon D2+ player. With equalizer settings to flat, sound quality of mp3 files, even at 320kbps, leave a lot to be desired. Playing around with the equalizer setting improves the sound quality tough. The good thing about this earphone is its ability to handle all level of frequency at ease.
