This is odd timing. Just yesterday I received my XB700 from B&H. I expected them to be much bassier(edit: bass with Woo Audio 3 was not controlled, is quite a bit better with SR-71A). I think they sound very good for $80. Compared to my T1, they lack mid/treble detail big time(well of course). They are very fun cans. I used my Behringer 2496 processor to tweak the bass using the PEQ and then to top that off, I used my Aphex 204 processor using the Big Bottom to enhance the bass slam around 40 Hz. Boy, these things can take some serious abuse before they beg for mercy.
I just sold my JVC DX1000, not because I didn't love them...but that's another story. So I figured the XB700 might fill the void. It did sort of. Honestly, the XB700 pales in comparison to what the DX1000 is capable of, bass-wise... but I could buy 9 pairs of XB700 for what I paid for DX1000 which aren't 9 times better.
If you want amazing, rattle-your-brain-bass while still holding it all together, sell a kidney or whatever and go for a DX1000.
Having rambled that, I'd like to try out the XB1000.
