Summary: Here is my video review of the XBA-H1. If you like the video please check out my channel :) Below the video is a quick summary of my opinions.
Design & Comfort
The XBA-H1's earpieces are quite large, and may not suit every user's ears. Thankfully they are quite lightweight.
Pros: Good isolation, smooth sound, light weight
Cons: Large earpieces, wind noise, real lack of treble extension and sense of space
Large, bulky, arguably overbuilt ear elements
Perfect for those with larger hands as the ear elements are easy to not only handle but also to remove from one's ears
Large ear elements may be problematic for those with smaller ears- may excessively contact outer ears
Cable does have some...
Pros: detail, warmth, easy ingress/egress, plenty of ear fittings, availabile at Best Buy

My past collections are piston 2.0, xba-3, shure se-215, klipsch x10, klipsch s4, v-sonic gr07, Among others and i have found these to be one of my favorite...

Not only does this add value, it sounds wonderful. Plus, the design is flat-out appealing. Extra good...
Cons: Premium price, No inline controls, However, at $150, it's fair to expect a little more. The lack of inline controls doesn't go by unnoticed. In fact, if not for this omission, the XBA-H1 would have otherwise been a must-have product despite the high price tag.
