Sony MDR-XB800 Review

 

Not long ago we reviewed the Sony X (MDR-X10) headphones, a glitzy “hi-fi” headset endorsed by none other than X Factor star and general loudmouth, Simon Cowell. We had high expectations for the X, in part because they are made by Sony – a company with...

Flashy styling ; Thunderous bass

Severe lack of balance ; Anemic midrange and treble ; Absent of detail or clarity

In its search for the extreme, Sony’s XB800 headphones cross the line from playful to painful.

Really nice headphones for the price

 

I've had the MDR-XB800 for about a month now and I really don't have any major complaints. The two things that I "personally" would adjust are the crispy highs and the overall fit (after prolonged use, these headphones can start to hurt your ears a...

Deep, smooth bass, very warm

vocales could be a little crisper

Superb sound, okay fit

 

alright, i owned the sony mdr xb500 for 7 months now and i loved the punchy bass that they produce which are the reasons why i got the xb800s over the 700s. After listening for 3 days, the xb800s shines further than the 500s in overall sound thouhg at...

Great sound, HORRIBLE FIT.

 

I bought these after the sound in my old pair (the extra bass XB500) started to go. Now, they look great, and I love how long the cord is and am EXTREMELY happy with the sound, but they are so darn uncomfortable. I have to take them off after wearing...

Amazing sound, long cord, looks great

Is EXTREMELY uncomfortable and difficult to get a good fit

Young, budget-conscious audiophile

 

After my last pair of Sony earphones (MDR-EX38iP) gave out after two years of faithful sound reproduction I decided to buy earphones for running and the best/cheapest headphones for listening. My requirements for the headphones were; under $200, great...

great sound stage, great highs mids and lows (3-28000Hz), comfort

no carrying case(or even bag), no detachable cord

Consumer review by:

Not the best purchase , but still pretty good

Very good Bass

Not very comfortable
