I have the 8320's..if the 8323 are anything like them then no

 

Trying to compare apples and oranges...  the full sized headphones (8323) & earphones (8320).  Anyway, the 8323 are re-branded Kickers.  I would say they are different from anything else from Monoprice.

Do you consider yourself an audiophile, whats your experience with headphones.
What do you listen too?

@opinicus
I know it is and that they were revranded. It was just a general statement.

well, i dont have "experience" per se, but i do consider myself an audiophile.

I own Creative Aurvana lives, ksc75s, CKM50s.

ive always listened very close to audio and i do pick apart headphones.

I went to Bestbuy a few weeks ago aind the best headphone there by FAR was the xb500, however i still prefer my cals to listen to non bass music.

just saying that i enjoyed what i was hearing!

Thanks, that's what I mean, different heapdhones for different types of sound. All the thing's i keep hearing about HD202 MK2's for my prefereances are off, and I need deep bass with slightly recessed vocals and don't really need much highs, seperation or anything

i know exatly what you mean..you wouldn't use ultimate ear customs with a sanza clip..you
would use klispch image s4s..the ie customs are for a hifiman hm 801 or the new ibasso dx100..but you didn't really say what you were going to plug the headphones into.. if it's something that's in the bedroom that's nothing special i can see your point but you haven't told us what you are using so we wouldn't know?

For the XB500's?

 

Probably

ipod touch 2G(Cirrus Logic DAC)-->FiiO L7 LOD--->FiiO E17/E5 -->out

 

and 

S/PDIF output from computer-->optical toslink cable-->E17(as amp and DAC with WM8740)--->out

 

I just went and tested them, they were missing some things i owuld have liked but for $35..which is how much it would cost me...i can't argue. gonna get them..really$35 with that much bass and comfort...wow

 

heck..i can use these direct out of anything if i want really..... >_<

 

the stuff they were missing it seems the XB700 fills in but the XB700 is $80+ ..and at that point i would just go and test the AKG's....so ill get the XB500 for $35 i already have audiophiel heapdhones..i want a consumer mainstream super bass heapdhone that is comfier than a pillow..and this is it
