  • 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: 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

  • Summary: I recommended wearing the cord over ears. Sounds are less compression this way.
  • Pros: The highs reveal a lot of details and music instruments become alive. I can hear a lot things in musics I ever heard before. The mid and low are well balance and natural. I can hear every word from singer or group of singers. Soundstage is large and nice 3D image sound. The sound from a big drum is boomy and real beep.
  • Cons: If the mid give just a tiny bit more details, It would be perfect ten.

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...

  • 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.

Sehr guter Klang, guter Sitz im Ohr, hoher Preis ist gerechtfertigt

  • Summary: Trotz des recht hohen Preises habe ich mich entschlossen, das "Risiko" einzugehen und diesen Ohrhörer zu kaufen. Eine Rückgabe ist ja nicht möglich, nachdem man ihn ausgepackt hat, was ja aus hygienischen Gründen für alle Orhörer gilt. Nachdem ich ihn an den MP3 Player eingestöpselt habe, war ich dann aber schon nach wenigen Sekunden begeistert.

Супер!

Popov-D69, Onliner

  • Summary: Звучание очень похоже на большие мониторные наушники, такого чистого звука я не получал от затычек никогда.
  • Pros: Изумительное звучание. Чистый звук, хорошие басы, звукоизоляция, большой набор амбушюр.
  • Cons: Помехи от трения провода об одежду.
