  • Summary: Purchased this in March 2013 sound was excellent but the button unit disintegrated in Feb 2014 after very little use. Had to buy superglue in Barbados to try and hold it together. Now binned and have gone back to Klipish X11i's.

Sony XBA3iP

Minnie Lewis, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound quality and noise cancellation is excellent on these, unfortunately the remote control volume does not work on my samsung phone and the connector does not connect properly to my nexus. If they provided a connector which could adapt to my range of devices this would have received a 5 star.

Sony should be ashamed

Z-man, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought a pair of XBA-3IP in September 2013 based on the good sound reviews and recommendation by What Hi-Fi? . Sound quality was really good and I was impressed. It had its quirks to find the best fit in my ears, but managed it.

Good sound, not so good microphone.

  • Summary: When sat properly in the ear, the sound quality is very good however even with the clip attached to clothing I find the buds easily fall out or get knocked which obviously affects the quality.

Very good sound quality!

Ray Harper, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I have had many In-Ear headphones including: Klipsch 10 & 10i, Sennheiser IE8, Shure 530 and lesser models from Denon and Sennheiser. What I particularly like about the XBA-3ip, is the very good sound quality across the audio spectrum.

Excellent sound quality

Mr. Steven Davies "Jed77", Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: Really good sounding in ear headphones and work well with Spotify on my Galaxy s4, they also sound great with my IPad. One slight criticism is that they could have slightly more bass but this aside I am now hearing new instruments in tunes that I have been listening too for years.

Don't get these, newer model fixes flaw

D. Barry, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: These IEMs are great but have a serious flaw, high level of sibilance which makes certain treble sounds very harsh, bordering on painful (see various threads online). I returned them for this reason and got the newer model, the XBA 30ip.

Very Impressed

Elmo85, Amazon

  • Summary: For me, having the addition of inline controls is a big plus for in ear phones which you intend to use on a mobile device. This for me rules out many other high end earbuds which may well be great but don't have the option for controls.

fairly good but expensive

uumode, Amazon

  • Summary: This is rated by What Hi-Fi and over at head-fi.org which is why I gave this a shot. I considered the other high end headphones £200-£300 but generally the life span of in ears don't seem to be that long, so spending £300 didn't appeal to me.
