Perhaps it means Xtra Bass Armature?

Or perhaps Sony doesn't even know where it came from, like the MDR models. XD

Xylophone Buying Astronaut. That's it, definitely. 

 

btw, in some Walkman documentation, they use Micro Dynamic Receiver.

Either that or Grado made a donation for advertising purposes. It is most likely cheaper than putting out an advertisement, and people get to sample the headphones in someway.

My school has a HD598 for the studio, and bunch of AT headphones throughout the school.

I'm starting to see the new Sony XB series popping up all over the place. I saw 4 in one day, on the university campus. Quite disappointing, since I've heard not to good things about them.

The new XB series are easily the most comfy on ear headphones I have ever tried (still can't compete with the monster truck tire ear pillows though). The sound... Better than Beats?

can't see 90% of schoolkids (or teachers for that matter) appreciating them though...

Actually they do know what XBA stands for, it was Experience Balanced Armature I think. Now the MDR are another story. I couldn't find the post where someone actually found the meaning. It comes from the very early sony models. The first headphones were named DR-X and it meant "Digital Reference". I guess they just decided to stick to that Digital Reference and add the M for something else...maybe music or mobile. But then someone sent Sony a letter and they told him the DR in MDR stands for Dynamic Receiver...so who the hell knows?! haha
