    I don't care what the headphones look like and I love the sound only problem is that everyone with 20 feet can here what you are listening to perfectly.

    Don't buy Beats!!

    By Junglenucker

    from Seattle, WA

    Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

    I just sold my $400 Beats pro studios and these nearly match the bass but with so much clearer midrange and highs, would recommend these over any beats any day

    Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

    I've had these headphones for about 6 months now and I'm not sure why I haven't written a review for these yet. Let me tell you that if you plan on getting a pair of these it will be worth it! Note that they are clear and full of bass and prefer these headphones over all my others. It's a worthy investment and I am really glad how sturdy and well they were made.

    The Very Best

    By cantrelllee

    from Edmonds, WA

    Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

    I am an avid user of these headphones and I absolutely love them. They sound amazing and while they are dorky looking when my friends try them on they absolutely love them, even more than the Beats Studios which cost 3 times more. I got these for 60 and for that price these are absolutely amazing. I find no flaws in the sound quality as they are even better that the Bose that I have as well, and the best part is you don't ever need a battery for this. Put down the 70mm and go for the 50's. These are amazing.

    Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones

    Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

    A Floral Arrangement. Classical Music. Wind Chimes. Flowing Water. Cascading Waves Colliding Against the Seashore. A Swallow’s Song. Atmospheric Storms. A Sports Car Chase. 50mm Bass Reality Drivers. King-Sized Ear Pads. A Plush Headband. Utmost Comfort. Splendor. The ultimate headphones for rock, heavy metal, dance, club, trance, and Hip hop music devotees. The Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones extract blockbuster studio sound quality that bass lovers everywhere crave from the most demanding movie theatre soundtracks, music, and video games. The Sony headphones are as beautiful to look at as the flower centerpiece on your dining room table. This product produces the most intricate, satisfying, and delicate sounds of nature like no other headphones on the planet. The headphones present realistic sonic accuracy on car chase scenes from action thriller movies, masterful vocals on country tunes, exquisite instrumental reproduction on Beethoven symphonies, and they obtain lifelike audio performance from the most famous Broadway musical productions. The XB headphones are truly an acoustic masterpiece in the treble, midrange, and low bass frequency spectrum. The Sony MDR-XB700 headphones offer an open, airy, delicate, and dignified concert soundstage from massively energetic speaker drivers with no degradation whatsoever. The Extra Bass stereo headphones exemplify a well-developed portable audio product out of the most esteemed line of powerful bass focused headphones on the market. It is absolutely delightful to wear an item so comfortable that looks this magnificent. This pair of stereo headphones can reproduce low bass notes with vibrancy, precision, depth, and unyielding clarity. I am unable to hear other outside distractions in my immediate environment when wearing the Sony stereo headphones. The Sony Extra Bass headphones sport an attractive appearance with its large over-the-ear design, sturdy construction, cloth-covered headband, silver ear cup exterior finish, and a 3.9 ft. flat Y-type cord. The Sony MDR-XB700 headphones feature a sealed acoustic design for improved sound isolation characteristics, direct vibe structure for the highest quality sound output, 3.5mm gold-plated L-shaped stereo mini plug for maximum signal transfer and compatibility with the widest range of portable audio, video, MP3, computer, and home audio equipment possible. The Sony Extra Bass headphones provide the following premier feature set for the ardent deep bass enthusiast: stereo reproduction, 50mm diameter XB drivers, neodymium high-energy magnets, dome-type speaker drivers, L/R ear cup placement markings, extended low frequency response diaphragm design, gaskets, earphone sealing construction to block out unwanted outside noise, pressure-relieving ear cushions, 2.0" ear cup thickness, 4.3" ear cup diameter, oxygen free copper voice coil, lightweight tangle-free flat cord, adjustable padded headband for maximum comfort, over-the-head circum-aural closed design, 3000mW power handling capacity, 3-28,000Hz frequency response, 24 ohms at 1kHz impedance rating, 106db/mW sensitivity rating, black/silver exterior finish, and this unit's weight is 10.41 ounces. The Sony headphones come packaged with a high quality carrying pouch for storage or safe transport to another destination. I mainly use the Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass headphones with my Sony XPLOD boombox to achieve sensational studio sound performance. The Sony headphones include a 90-day parts and labor limited manufacturer warranty. You will need a 1/8� to 1/4� stereo headphone plug adapter to connect the Sony MDR-XB700 headphones to a home stereo system. Unfortunately, the Sony headphones don’t come with this component stereo private listening accessory. I use a headphone extension cord with the Sony Extra Bass headphones when I listen to a component based stereo system. The headphones deliver an exciting personal listening session for my favorite music, audio books, or radio programs. The Sony headphones present clear vocals and superior instrumental reproduction on southern rock, classic rock, light rock, hard rock, the oldies, the blues, bluegrass, love songs, electronica, big band era music, orchestral ensembles, jazz, and disco music. The Sony headphones are ideal for use on your sofa at home, at the office, outdoors, on the train, an airplane, on a cross-country bus ride, business travel, and listening to the radio. Customers can expect to enjoy tunes stored on an iPod, iPhone, iPad, iMac, gaming desktop PC, VAIO Laptop, PlayStation, smartphone, tablet computer, book reader, Sony Walkman MP3 player, a portable cassette player, DVD player, VCR, portable TV, compact stereo shelf system, powered speakers, digital audio player such as a DAT, MD Walkman, or DCC player, satellite radio boombox, Wi-Fi enabled tabletop radio, or any HD radio that they might have on this wonderful pair of headphones for a lengthy period of time. The Sony headphones don’t require equalization or an independent headphone amplifier to output audiophile grade sound. Whether it’s for the aspiring teenage musician who wants a new pair of cans, a portable audio enthusiast, a casual music listener, or the most seasoned professional DJ, the Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass headphones are a perfect fit for your portable audio playback needs day or night. Good Luck. Enjoy.

    The Headphones That Make Audiophiles Happy

    By duokev

    from San Jose, CA

    Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

    As said in the 'pros' section, the frame is quite robust. Since it is a 50 mm driver headphone, it would be quite heavy when you put it on your head but it's actually quite comfortable. After prolonged use, the frame flexes back into its original position preserving the headphone's original packaged presentation. (I would not recommend putting these around your neck and just use the included carrying pouch for transportation.) Sony has had quite the reputation for producing some serious speakers in the past and it definitely shows with the XB700's. The bass doesn't explode in your ears, unless you want it to of course, courtesy of the ability to handle 3 watts of power, and the trebles are clear and crisp; despite this being a bass-heavy headphone. From classical and contemporary to trance and vocals, these headphones will reproduce all of the sounds with great precision and balance. Overall, these headphones exceed most of my expectations of functionality and durability save for cable length. Though a longer length would probably mean that someone would carelessly step on the cable. I guess these headphones are not meant to be shared so why not make a stop at your local Sony Store and pick the headphones that make audiophiles happy.

        Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

        These headphones destroy beats by dre through the roof. Monster headphones are all about looks but not quality. I'm very selective about my headphones....monster doesn't even come near for this price. The bass is out of this world....the looks aren't that great. IF you're searching for looks these are not the headphones for you. IF you're searching for awesome sound quality, comfort and rigidness. this is the one!!!!

          Comments about Sony MDR-XB700 Extra Bass Headphones - 50mm:

          This is the best pair of headphones i have had to date! They are better than my friends bose noise cancelling headphones, and have a lower price than his. The volume is not too loud at the peak, but its just right, and when the bass kicks (bottom of 3hz) in there is no muffled or cracking in the mid and high range. I think I am going to order another pair!
