These headhones are fantastic for the price they are at in my opinion

Posted

Pros: Decent amount of bass. Deals well with amplification, crisp clear sound, decently sturdy.

Cons: Could have been made with different material than plastic.

I bought these a year ago now and they are holding up great with my Vector Research amplifier. Bass is on 10 Mid on 6 and treble on 8. They sound fantastic and don't make any buzzing noises. I wear these on the bus ride to school which is an hour and thirty minute ride and they sit comfortably on my head the whole time. My friend and I did a headphone play-off and everybody said that mine were clearer and less distorted than the beats while they having head shaking bass (if amplified of course). These did not disappoint me.

GARBAGE, 99% BRITTLE plastic

Posted

Pros: its red and black (yay)

Cons: everything! cables, padding, comfort, SQ,

down right junk not worth more than $5.00. the bass (a thing these are sold for) is non-existent. the headphones are heavy with little to no headband padding and crappy earpads, the wire is literally a few strands of very thin wire wrapped in rubbery plastic. sound quality is CRAP. did i mention all of the cheap plastic its encased in ?

Pros: Boomy bass, large, stylish DJ-esque look

Cons: MUST be equalized to sound even halfway decent, cheap feeling, PLASTIC EVERYTHING

I purchased the XX's about a week ago, so I've had time to fiddle with them for a while. Let's just jump right in with the sound. Unequalized, these sound like you're listening to a set of desktop speakers through a piece of wood. Not great. It's very muffled. But, the bass is very present, even the sub bass. Hence, the "Xtreme Xplosives" moniker. However, once properly equalized, they open up quite a bit. There is a slightly airy feeling about them, as if the sound is trying to break out of the earcups, but again, they still have a muffled veil stopping them. It's strange. They aren't entirely open or muffled, just somewhere in between. However, when paired up to a FiiO E11, highs become...
