My first headphone purchase

 

To go from my stock ipod earbuds to these has changed the role of music in my life. This was my first personal audio purchase and I must say I am beyond pleased. I don't need to explain why I was unhappy with my Apple earbuds, so lets skip that part....

Deep, clean bass. Extreme padding & comfort. Great overall quality

Hard to find

Different Strokes for Different Folks

 

First off, I'm completely content with my purchase and don't regret purchasing them. They are quite expensive though. When only comparing the amount of sound you get compared to the MDR-XB500's (which are +$200s less), it is only slightly noticeable...

Extra Bass, Little to No Distortion at High Volumes, Solid Amount of Power, Highest Level of Comfort

Very Large, No Protective Carrying Case, Price

Comparison with Dr. Dre Beats

 

I absolutely love these headphones. I bought these, while an acquaintance of mine bought the Dr. Dre Beats Pro, and we had a side by side comparison with 4 (four) non-biased test subjects. 3 (three) of the 4 (four) agreed that these beat the Beats in...

Extreme Bass in all genres, Extreme Volume

Size

COME AT ME BRO!!!

 

And boy will these babies come at you. At first glance when you pull them out of the box they are almost intimidating by their sheer size. The first thing you will want to do is look in the mirror to see how much percentage of your face they take up!

Thumping Beat. Strong

Highs could be better

Consumer review by:

Disatisfied with product in some parts.

 

Honestly, from all the reviews ive seen everyone said these headphones were amazing so i thought why not spend the extra money and buy headphones you would never have to replace. So i bought these thinking they would be absolutely amazing. Well, In...

Comfortable Headphones, Allows loud music calming to listen too.They hold alot of power

Their massive size? Lack of Bass system

SONY MDR-XB1000

 

I also own a pair of MDR-XB500's, the new XB1000 is much larger than the 500's and the bass is much deeper. If you listen to Trance music a lot, the 1000's are the perfect headphones to own. Just like the 500's, the 1000's are very comfortable to wear...

Big bass and very comfortable to wear

carrying pouch not included

Awesome

 

the fact they have 70mm drivers that go an ultra low of 2 hertz, seriously that's the only thing anyone should know. Buy these headphones.
