2) They are about the same.

 

3) Slightly more sub-bass. Mid-bass quantity is about the same. Maybe XB500 has a little bit more. I'm kind of lazy to pull them both out now, so I'm going from memory.

 

4) Nope, the headband isn't very comfortable, but the plush pillows are. Besides, the overall headphone is quite light and the weight is well distributed. You won't really feel the headband much.

 

5) They are equally as bassy and both are dark headphones with lost treble. I would say they are about the same.

 

6) Yup.

 

7) Yup.

 

8) Bass drowns out a lot of the sound, but EDM sounds pretty ok on them. It's a shame the highs are muted like on the Crossfade LP.

 

Mkay. Thanks for answering! :D

 

Also, for #8, would EQing the Sony XB500's uncover the mids and treble, but not lose the bass quantity? I mean, that's what an EQ is supposed to do, so I'm guessing yes.

EQ doesn't help the treble, the drivers just aren't that capable of bringing the highs.

I would say yes, you can do that with W shaped EQ, done it myself.

highest points being 31-62hz, 500-1khz and 10-16k I think (some say 4K should be boosted on XB500 but personally I feel it brings slibinance), freqs in between increasing/decreasing to make it look like W.

The question isn't about IF it would help. 

The question is HOW MUCH it will help. And that depends on HPs, while particulary - XB500 - responds to EQ quite nice.

As you can see, the xb500's bass bleeds too much into the midrange, and there are some peaks and dips in the treble. The best way to fix it is to use an equalizer to tone down the midrange frequencies and make the treble flat. The xb500s aren't really dark headphones, its just that the overly forward bass and lower midrange don't really give the treble room to breathe. So, what do you do? You reverse-equalize the inequalities in the headphone to make it sound more neutral:

 

Here's a quick representation of what reverse equalizing is (may be called something else, but that's what I call it). I basically neutralized the peaks and dips in the frequency spectrum, making it much more neutral. I left the lower frequencies alone since not everybody tweaks the bass the same way I do. So, maybe someone can replicate this on their xb500 and see what the difference is like.

I've always wondered what goes through the mind of people that build DB drag cars.

I know a bunch of guys that are into SPL. I think the main purpose is to get attention, while at the same time being half a decibel louder than somebody else. Honestly it's a huge waste of money.

Anyone pair of 'cans with the same sound (signature) as the XB500's but with minimal leakage? :/

Any over-ears that have just as much bass and pretty much the same sound signature but minimal leakage?

 

lol.

Well, the XB500 are on-ears but the SRH550DJ are a can I heard today with plentiful bass and close to 0 leakage in a somewhat quiet store.

lol.

Reloop RHP-20 and V-MODA Crossfade LP/LP2 are 3 cans that come to mind. All 3 have strong bass, attenuated treble and are fairly comfortable over-ear cans.
