Sony MDR-XB950N1

 

For the price, Sony's wireless MDR-XB950N1 headphones deliver laudable noise cancellation and strong wireless audio with adjustable bass response.

Exceptionally powerful bass that can be adjusted using app. Good overall audio performance. Solid noise cancellation. Includes cable for wired listening.

Dialed-up bass isn't for people seeking an accurate mix. No remote/inline mic on audio cable.

Sony's MDR-XB950N1 headphones deliver a sound signature that's less crisp and bright than many we test, but avoid sounding muddy when the bass is tamped down. When the effect is engaged, all bets are off. The noise cancellation is quite good for this...

Weak noise cancellation. ; Overly bass-heavy sound quality. ; Bass and treble delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

Sony MDR-XB950N1 Extra Bass Headphones review

 

Too much love for the low-end

Comfortable ; Fun with bass-heavy music ; Long battery life

Rolled off highs and recessed mids ; No multipoint pairing ; No auto play/pause

The Sony MDR-XB950N1 is a fun-sounding headphone that emphasizes bass above all else. If all you want is skull-rattling bass, you’ll love them. However, if you want a fully featured headphone that excels in all genres, you should look elsewhere.

Sony MDR-XB950N1 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sony MDR-XB950N1 headphones are the daddy of Sony's 'extra bass' range. With wireless connection and active noise cancelling, they offer everything you'd expect from a high-end pair, as well as ear-wobbling levels of bass of course. Read on to find...
