Summary: I wanted better bass and that's what I got, you have to fiddle about to get a good fit but it is well worth the trouble. These are so much better than my last mid range 'phones. Very good price and fast delivery so I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: You pay the price, but they are superb and I don't think I could settle for anything less now. Makes you look to the quality of the recordings and other music equipment, which are now what lets down the audio experience.
Summary: these sound brilliant, properly like you know, the headphones you have been waiting for but not spending 300 pound like a lunatic. for fifty quid bnib if you have that money, its really not wasted. see if you get top top top end ones, you need a new DAC amp to plug into your mp3 player, or a 500 DAC player, its not worth it unless you have just been fitted with new bionic ears. This is good enough, sound quality on the move is excellent.
Summary: Bought these as a replacement for 8 year old Sony buds. I hoped they would extend the bass response and give a wider and balanced dynamic range of sound for all music genres. I was not disappointed. These headphones sound amazing. From Madonna to Mozart, you can really enjoy your music collection. They cut out nearly all of the ambient noise on the train. I'm sure they will be great at reducing aircraft noise when flying too. Cable length is just right.
Summary: I've now spent a bit longer with these headphones and I can now see their strengths more clearly. Just been listening to The Music of Grand Theft Auto V online and the XBA H1 are absolutely superb with electronic music. Even going back to the 1980's and the movie soundtrack for Escape From New York these headphones really shine bright like a diamond.
Turns out you really have to jam them in your ear and get a VERY good seal. When inserted properly

Summary: Thought they sounded extremely tinny when fresh out of the box. Turns out you really have to jam them in your ear and get a VERY good seal. When inserted properly, they sound amazing. Get a pair, then get a pair for your friends.
