Bernice C., Newegg

  • Summary: the price is allot and you can find close performance from lesser priced buds
  • Pros: Very good mids and highs lows are a bit removed but the the quality of these headphones is well with within my comfort range I am a avid music listener and the audio reproduction is great. I minus one egg cause the rubber around the wire tore a little real easily
  • Cons: rubber around wire tore easily when I brushed a wall

  • Pros: Isolation, Bass, Clarity
  • Cons: Pricey

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.

Decent earbuds

joe lane, Amazon

  • Summary: A good set of earbuds here. I've been trialling them for a few weeks now and am mostly impressed. The lows are nice, not quite as thumping as something like the beats but just enough to have a decent presence. The mids are warm and saturated and in my opinion make these buds.

  • Summary: very good product with nice balanced sound only grouse was that the control does not change tracks on my htc one and the case for the earphones could have been made a bit larger.

Down side the price

sdhgj, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Very good in- ear phones although should be given the price tag. Very comfortable, great sound - in line mic is good and very handy. Noise isolation works well! Just more expensive than the equivalent Shure or Sennheiser.

Clear sound with good bass

Kelv, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: After a few hours running in, even with my player set on neutral sound setting, the bass is really good without being 'muddy', overall the sound is I think warm but you can hear voices and individual instruments clearly.

Excellent sound, not for Android.

Jack, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: I have not used balanced armature drivers before and it took a few days for my ears to adjust to the tone of these earphones but now that they have I love them. I predominantly listen to audiobooks when out and about and for this reason I did not feel the need to purchase the more expensive models...

buy with confidence

Rob Ritchie, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I read reviews and decided to give it a try. I don't expect headphones to last forever so wasn't bothered by suggestions it wouldn't last forever. Good sound, comfortable to wear. A good buy.
