Yay!!!! Just ordered a MDR-XB1000 from Japan for $349 delivered.

I just bought it! I can't wait to do my usual Unboxing videos and tell you guys what I think. I think I paid too much, but I really wanted it so I don't care. Anyone else ordered one?

They should make a spinner version of these beasts.  Bling. biggrin.gif

I have seen two for sale on ebay and they are around the price range you paid. So not sure if you overpaid. Would love to get one of these bad boys. The two sellers on ebay I believe were both from Japan and I didnt get a good vibe from either. Otherwise I might have pulled the trigger. Wonder how one would obtain warranty service?

Sony Style Japan is selling it for 24,800 JPY so it's about $295 USD. I guess I didn't over paid by that much. The price of getting it first. smily_headphones1.gif

Might as well attach a pair of 8 inch subwoofers to your head with some duck table.

I thought they were suppose to follow the line of the other XB series... 30, 50, 70 .. 90$? didnt expect them to be over 120, but damn 350$? lol

 

good luck

XB1000 looks like a more comfortable solution. ^^

They look beautiful but look even bigger than the AD700s

Wow! Congrats on your purchase!

 

Everyone's anticipation rests in your hands...

Has any1 tried finding some impressions/reviews from japanese sites? The more people looking the bigger chance of finding one. It's been available long enough in japan to certainly at least some1 must have written something about them.

 

Or then those who's received them have been literally blown away by the bass into bassheaven...

One would think a gun would be a more efficient way of having your brain blown out. biggrin.gif

 

Wow, apparently they extend all the way down to 2 Hz. Bass will probably be amazing but I wonder how the rest of the spectrum will sound on it. I eagerly await their arrival.

Hey I don't have my brain blown out despite using a setting like this for my XB500 if I want to feel like having 2 small subs attached to the head...

Maybe XB1000 got potential though. :D I doubt there will ever be a headphone that would be concidered too bassheavy to me.
