  • Summary: Pros: These are good earbuds that offer a boomy bass, clear mids, ok highs that aren't too rolled off and good isolation.   Cons: They are not worth their price as there are clearly better options at the $200 area
  • Pros: Isolation, Bass, Clarity
  • Cons: Pricey

Good quality headphones.

  • Summary: Prompt delivery and product is really high quality, obviously not going to compete with the £1000+ but definitely a good few steps ahead of your regular headphones.

Where's the Bass?

  • Summary: These headphones are shocking value for money. They possess absolutely zero Bass whatsoever. Additionally if using during exercise - forget it. No amount of adjustment or changing the Bud size, stops them from falling out. A great disappointment for such an amount of money. I have no complaints about the build quality but the sound is appalling.

don't buy if you want a balanced true sound

  • Summary: these headphones sound horrible, there is no treble at all....the roll off sounded around at 15khz, i assumed they were faulty and had to return them, however later reading more about them I found out they are meant to sound like this which personally makes no sense. as someone who produces music I like to hear the whole frequency range!

For the average person who likes bass and isn't a sound engineer... you will rate this as 1 star, don't be fooled by the Pros

  • Summary: I previously owned the Sony MDR-300EXiP headphones for listenning to music on my iphone. I found them to be far superior to the average Sony models being sold for use with an iphone. Please excuse my non audiophile terminology but I found music vibrant and with rich bass. I loved them, although they only lasted about a year a time, I went through 3 pairs of them over the last 3 years. But they provided quality sound so I was very happy.

Brilliant sounding in-ears

  • Summary: Wonderful sound for the price, and a variety of cushion sizes makes sure that they'll sit happily in your ears! Though it might be worth a mention that the volume control along the cable does not work for android (as far as I'm aware) but don't let this put you off, a very solid purchase.

Sound great, but only 95% of the time.

  • Summary: Not 5 stars because I think they need a little more refinement at the top end of the range, especially at higher volumes. At medium volume, they sound spectacularly good. Been used to the sound of a pair of Soundmagic E10, which are very good as well, but the XBA2 are a step above. Bass is there, controlled, punchy, not overwhelming, unless the track demands it. Mids are crisp and very clear, no issues at all.
