I suggest you buy the xb800s, as i break them in the better the bass becomes. They are much more punchier than the xb500s, and now after using the xb800s for 3 weeks, it makes it feel like there isnt even bass on the xb500s! On top of that the xb800s got me to realize that the xb500s are so muffled. I highly suggest you save up and get the xb800s and i promise you that you wont be disappointed lol. And they also fold up and swivel, so they are perfect for travel. The xb800s also have a very good seal, i live in New York City and i take them to school everyday and i have no problem using them in the subway, in the streets. I am currently using the headphones straight out of an ipod and i can't imagine how they would sound like with a proper amp.
