Not very accurate. There's a review of the AE1 on the front page of this thread
I was wondering what the difference between sound quality was between the Philips Oneil Stretch headphones and the Sony XB500? I heard the XB500 at best buy and thought they were great but I'm not sure if they are better than the Philips ones? Could you please give me your opinion? I'm a newbie!
Not much difference in sound quality but in terms of sound signature the XB500 is quite a bit more bass-heavy. The Philips is reasonably well-balanced and has pretty good clarity but if you're looking for balanced and clear sound it's not nearly as good as a Senn HD428. The build quality, isolation, and comfort are all very good on the Stretch, though.
