I have a feeling I'm going to be losing the XB90ex.
I've only been listening to them for 2 hours straight but here's why.
I listen to many many many many music genres.
The XB90ex are MORE THAN FANTASTIC when bass heavy music is playing. And by bass heavy I mean not much focus on other parts of the sound spectrum.
I could listen to them for hours and hours.
When the rest of the sound spectrum comes into the picture.... I am amazed at how good these are even though the focus is subbass.
BUT. They're actually just a bit less than decent.
So. for bassy music. I will have to say they are excellent excellent excellent.
If, however, you are looking for all rounders with fantastic subbass, these don't work.
I played two tracks repeatedly.
Adele's "Rumor has it" and Wale's "Triumph"
Oh. last tracks for testing were this.
Listening to these through the XB90ex and the FX40. There are clear differences.
