Sony MDR-XB1000 Vs Beats studio

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

YES I UNDERSTAND BEATS ARE HATED, BUT HEY I FEEL LIKE BURNING MONEY TODAY. 

 

EDIT: I MEANT TO SAY BEATS PRO

 

Anyways I am a basshead and after constantly posting question posts about the ultrasone pro 900 i decided to ask about these.

Which one of these headphones listed in the title is better. What is the difference between the 2 soundwise?

 

I have heard enough about the price, no more "there is cheaper" comments please.

Eh, I wouldn't recommend either but I dont think you want to hear that.

 

Here are the charts for both to start you off:

I dont know man....even if you're a basshead I wouldn't recommend them, they both have INCREDIBLY overpowering bass from what I've heard, and by overpowering I mean so much bass that its no longer worth spending $100 on the 'phones..good luck with whatever you buy and I hope you are actually satisfied with your purchase.

Maybe it's me, but I have the Xb 700 and I love them [I use a FiioE6] and from what I've heard the Xb1000 is much better [and more refined] than the 700's. Some of the Distortion in previous models has been resolved as well as better response on the mids and trebele's

 

So I like them and having listened to a number of the Beats Audio Line... I like Sony MDR XB series better every time. Of course that's not to say MDR XB are the best for your money... still though I'm a sucka for a giant can so my opinion is a little bias ;3
