Sony MDR-XB80BS

 

The wireless, exercise-friendly Sony MDR-XB80BS earphones deliver thunderous bass, but lack the high-mid definition that allows for balance.

Powerful bass response doesn't distort at high volumes. Secure in-ear fit. Water-resistant design ideal for exercise.

Sound signature lacks high-mid defintion. Control panel could be laid out more usefully.

If big bass motivates you during your workouts, Sony's MDR-XB80BS earphones will provide it in spades and stay in place while doing so. However, many bass lovers don't necessarily realize that they also want a crisp high-mid punch to help add crunch...

Good product

 

Great sound. Battery lasts ages. Comfortable for an in ear product. Only issue is that if you are using as a hands free headset the mic is positioned in such a way that it picks up background noise. Other than that excellent.
