Sony XB500(and other XB series cans) Appreciation Thread - Page 4

You'll be blown away if you're used to that level of bass. Anyway, let us know what you think as they may be a good budget option.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to skip out on the XB600.

It's a good thing I opted out from buying a credit card.

The reason is, I'm at the limit at this week, and I figured to read more reviews on the XB600. Apparently even bassheads say these don't push out enough bass on the official Sony website.


I'm going to wait until a miracle happens and the XB500 suddenly comes back to a local retail store.

IMHO that was the worst mistake Sony made, cancelling the old XB series and replacing it with mediocre cans. I would prefer if they released an updated version of the old series with removable cables or design.

I  bought recently my XB500, and I  like them quite a lot.

They are great for listening techno, the words "smooth bass" comes to my mind, the xb500 handle  the mid-bass effortlessly ....

But I  find the sub-bass lacking, and almost muted, so it's not 100% perfect for techno.

Otherwise I  find them very comfy too, and I  use them to watch film on my tablet, in my bed before sleeping.
