Excerpt: Excellent bass, mid and treble. No sibilance noted and I am very sensitive to it. This is the best earphone from Sony. at this price, this is steal. The only issue I had was the ear tips, nothing from the included tips works for me. I used a third party one.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: The sound coming out of Sony XBA H3's is amazing! They sound even better after 50-60 hours of breaking them in! I'm using them with a FiiO X3. My songs are either in 16 bit AIFF or 24 bit WAV formats. Unbelievable clarity on the mids and highs. The bass is crisp and deep.
Pros: Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I have had this headphone now for more than 6 months. I believe I am now qualified to review it having used it for a minimum of about 2 hours a day for at least 4 months of the more than 6 I have had it. For a start, the concept of burn-in is flawed. It's more psychological than empirical.
Summary: After owning quite a few pairs of IEM's ranging from the good (shure se215) bad (audiofly af78) these are without fail the best most natural sounding i've tried. The bass is fantastic for something this size with very clear treble and a wide sound stage.
Summary: I know reviewing sound quality is very subjective, but when I first listened to these my initial thoughts were, Wow! Amazing sound for IEM's. My source is my NW-ZX1 walkman, so a decent source.
Summary: I have Sennheiser HD-650s which I love but I was looking for headphones that I could: 1) use in the company of others without disturbing the whole room; and 2) that I could take on business trips without filling the whole overnight bag.

Summary: These are excellent. I listen to a reasonably wide variety of music and it is all reproduced with amazing richness, clarity and precision. They compare very favourably with the old hallowed MDR-EX700s I had a few years ago. In fact they may even be better than that!
Summary: Although bulky, thanks to the whopping driver, the sound *and* bass are excellent. Nice clarity and appear to handle most thing from Berlioz to Kasabian and everything in between. I actually slightly prefer them to my Grado GR10s (personal preference i know) but i happily use this headphones a lot.
Summary: Very poor sound quality, never expected such a poor item from Sony. Absolutely no bass at all, so loud treble. Even my old SoundMagic E10 sounds better then this. I think its design promisin which lead me to get it. But i think this item is not for me.
