  • Summary: could have been a perfect phone if it had better sound stage and a bit more prominent mids , bass lacks pace , but its okay , i will take that , the sound sig is dark warm , and notes are thick , clarity is not a problem can be driven from daps , but a bit more life to highs will do good , amping does help . i like these as much as i hate these , why in this world , why a J cable ? and no cable clip ?   nice carry pouch , cable is good too .
  • Pros: clear , good bass , nice mods , highs are okay .
  • Cons: v shaped sound sig , mids lack forwardness . j cord , should have added a cable clip !! come on , how can you lack sound stage ?

  • Summary: Naotaka Tsunoda is the first person I've ever met who has the title of "Distinguished Engineer". He handed me his business card at the Fujiya Avic show in Tokyo and suggested I try the new range of IEMs he had designed with his team.   I have been looking for a reasonable pair of IEMs for a while. I previously owned the UE TF10s and have a pair of RE-ZEROs, each has their faults.
  • Pros: Comes with both noise-reducing and ordinary tips and good accessories. Sound is fairly well-balanced.
  • Cons: Cable is a bit short by itself so the extension is always necessary.

  • Summary: This is my first review and moreover and I am not an audiophile by any means. I would try to list out what I feel are the pros and cons. I am comparing these with RE-262 which I bought for approximately same price.   1. Price - In India they retail for around $140-150 which by any means for a triple driver IEM is good.   2. Received them approximately 8 hours ago and still trying to wrap my fingers around their sound.   3.
  • Pros: Instrument Separation, Clarity, Fit, Bass, Soundstage, Isolation
  • Cons: Thin Cables, Cable Length, Vocals

  • Summary: When I first listened to XBA 3 I was startled at the detail of the sound that these earphones produced. Even lower bit rate audio sounded bright and detailed with clearly separated instruments. The package contains noise isolation silicone earbuds with stuffing inside that blocks lot of noise. When you are in the street wearing this be careful because you wont hear any outside noise.
  • Pros: Detail, Instrument Separation, Sweet Treble, Isolation, Soundstage
  • Cons: Bass needs tuning, Some may find the cable annoying

Best in-ear headphone

Manju Honnur, Naaptol
24 July 2013
  • Summary: The XBA-3 is a superb-sounding pair of headphones they offer a keenly balanced mix of deep bass, a natural-sounding midrange, and smooth treble detail. The ultimate test of any headphones is how they sound after long listening sessions, and the XBA-3s never left me fatigued. Beyond the sound, the earbuds are comfortable to use as well, though I was aware of the bulk of the relatively large earpieces hanging off my ears.

great headphones...

Ajay Kumar, Naaptol

  • Summary: The final words for Sony xba-3 are that these headphones are really amazing and incorporate detailed higher frequencies. Moreover the quality gives a strong competition to already established leaders of markets like Shure and Etymotics. These earphones are offering something with which you can enjoy a rich, deep layered audio with quality noise isolation functionality.
