Sony MDR-XB700

 

The XB700s are bassy and plush, and will uncomfortably dig into your skull as they rattle it around.

For the price, we could see these as a sound investment.

Sony MDR-XB700

 

Like putting pillows on your ears.

Plush, decent acoustic noise cancellation

Slightly recessed treble, heavy, short cable (and silly cable design)

If you are a bass-head the MDR-XB700 will suit you perfectly, with slow, powerful low frequencies prioritised over all others. For discerning music listening they are not so spectacular.

Sony MDR-XB700 review

 

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

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

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

Sony's monster headphones are designed to pump out bass, primarily, with their huge size implying extreme audio heaviosity. They're also incredibly comfortable, like strapping a pair of feather pillows to either side of your head. The pillow effect...

For dance, industrial, electronic pop and mechanical contemporary classical of the Steve Reich variety, these are just the job, as long as you don’t mind looking like a cyborg. If its subtlety and nuance you’re after, these aren’t for you, and it’s...
