Sony MDR XB700

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So i bought a pair of these Sony MDR XB700's about 4 weeks ago from J&r for $80, and they finally shipped. I just plan on using them for personal music, and i was wondering what a good headphone amp would be? Also i was wondering the specs on dre beats just to see how much better they are ;) thanks

Doesn't really need a Headphone amp but I figure most would recommend a fiio e7/e9/e10 to go with that.

i bought these  phones MDR-XB700  for 35 euros. they sound  very good even with extra bass effect. they have wide sound stage,a little bit crispy highs,but that is not an issue. only matter that i have to admmit is that they have only 1 meter long cable. this is good for sound quality ,but not for listening on longer distance. O 24 ohms they have very good expression and speed... wow great phones

 

8/10

I disagree, they don't sound particularly impressive ampless, volume wise no prob but sound quality wise yes.

Agree with RPG. For portability, get an E11. Otherwise the E9/E7 will do just fine.

these MDR XB700 are definitively for trance, idm, downtempo,downbeat,dub,d'n'b,tech-house music.experts  from sony made them for that kind of music. for ipods mp3 players ,digital sound carrds. not monitoring neutral sound.
