XBA-3 - XBA Series Triple Driver Balanced Armature In Ear Earphones

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #151 in Universal Fit

Pros: Balance, clear sound, decent bass, comfortable, all rounder headphone.

Cons: Could have better bass, slightly metallic highs, could have better soundstage.

This is my best headphone for all around genres, it does everything right, is very comfortable and is worth $200 easy imo. Very good for modern music, if you want huge bass and soundstage I recommend something like the XB90EX but for all around music and balance and clarity, these are it.

Pros: Separation, comfort, looks, balance, clarity, mids/trebs

Cons: Bass for some, expensive

The XBA 3s are some of the clearest-sounding in-ears I've ever heard. Granted that list is rather short... but that's neither here nor there! 

 

The triple-armature setup is known for providing accuracy rather than "fun" by many, and this is no exception. The trebs and mids are very well-defined and separated, but not overpowering. The bass leaves something to be desired, mostly in quantity rather than quality. The mid bass is present but blended more than defined IMO. I can get a little more sub-bass with my cMoy but playing from an iPod doesn't do it for me.

 

These guys come with several pairs of tips, carrying case, ear tool, and shirt clip.

 

As usual Sony does not disappoint. This is my first pair of triples and I'm very happy. Especially since I got a great deal. Looking forward to discovering new things in my music in the future!
