Sony MDR-XB300

 

If you haven't heard, there's a new trend in inexpensive earphones and headphones: Pile on the bass. Sony's new XB line features affordable in-ear and headphone models, and the MDR-XB300 ($49.99 list) is an alluring option for anyone on a tight budget...

Affordable. Extremely deep bass response. Comfortable ear cushions. Lightweight, despite size

Tinny and nasally highs

Audiophiles, steer clear; bass lovers, rejoicethis Sony pair isn't accurate, but it's affordable, and it covers subwoofer frequencies with powerful response.

Go get it if ear pounding bass is what you want

Solid bass response, comfortable to wear, minimal audio leakage

Lack of clarity in mids and highs, dual sided cable design is inconvenient

Expert review by:

Great!

 

after my husband snapped 2 head candy headphones, had to find a suitable high quality alternative - and these are the ones. Very comfortable to wear and very good quality sound. At a reasonable price, i hope these last longer than the previous ones!

Sony MDR-XB700 review

 

If you want a pair of headphones to make you look like you're at Abbey Road laying down tracks on a particularly heavy 70s cock rock record, the Sony MDR-XB700s are for you. Epic in size, they also serve up sound so loud you'll feel like you're in the...

Cosier than a four poster bed, great bassy sound on dance tracks

Lack of detail on guitar tracks, too big to wear out

Cracking if you only listen to bass heavy tunes, not so good if you like guitars

Dont buy

 

decent quality

i bought these from a target a few years ago, they are a very good cheap pair of headphones but i bought them for less than 50 dollars. At this price of over 130 it is a complete ripoff. For 130 dollars you can get way better headphones

Great headphones for the price

 

I bought these headphones after my skullcandy ones broke. They have the same cons, but these have so much better sound and bass. They cost a lot less than most headphones out there and are prob better than most as well. For $50, this is more than i was...

Great sound and bass, very inexpensive, lightweight

uncomfortable after 30 min or so, leakage

Consumer review by:

Confortable

 

Very comfortable. Could be a little tighter on the ears, the pads are very soft

Ears get a little warm on hot days after 2-3 hours use

Consumer review by:

Good quality, bad comfort

 

These headphones have pretty good sound quality and delivered their promise on extra bass, but i feel like these headphones are too centered on the bass and that the vocals and the other instruments are just kind of a background to the music. Also,...

booming bass, good sound

too focused on bass, not comfortable

Consumer review by:

good seller

 

nothing to complain about the product, good seller

Prepare yourself for the monster bass of the MDR-XB500 Extra Bass headphones. Sporting a circum-aural closed design, the ear cushions are angled parallel and connected by a quality cloth-lined headband that reduces pressure for a comfortable fit.
