Excerpt: I bought this in-ear headphones 3 weeks ago, i burnt-in my phone with wide range of sound. after 1 week burn-in, i can feel the unique sound of XBA-H3: + The bass of this in-ear is quite warm, clear and strong, with make me feel good with any kind of music such as: Pop, ballad, etc + The mid is not...
Excerpt: wow what a pair of ear phones... wasn't sure about spending so much on a pair of head phones but after checking out the different makes on the market i so pleased i settled on these. once you work out how to keep them on your ears you'll very surprised on the sound.
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.
Summary: I've always hankered after top of the range ear buds having paid a max of £40 up to now to listen to my iPod Touch. Having booked a long haul flight over Christmas, I thought it time to splash out on the Sony XBA-H3. Not being an audiophile, I eagerly awaited delivery to experience the difference.
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: The sound is clear and brilliant; the amazing thing is, it allows me to hear sounds I've never noticed in the music I've heard so many times before. There are no particular peculiarity in the sound, if you know what I mean. Say, some earphones focus on low bass sounds, some on high tones etc.
Summary: Initially I thought it was just another headphone in my collection - I will only give it a 4 star. How wrong I was! I did two things to bring it's full potential out - hybrid ear tip to give a good seal and Teac HA-P50 Headphone Amplifier/DAC to connect to my Macbook via USB.
The Best Headphones I have ever tried/used/bought.

Summary: I was initially reluctant to spend £200 on some in-ear headphones as surely they couldn't match over or on-ear types; could they? I would just like to say that these are by far the best headphones I have ever had the opportunity to use/try/buy.
