Well you have to understand some people here only care about clarity and such, not over-emphasized bass.
If I got them I'm sure I'd get rid of them right away, I'm not a basshead at all.

That is true, but the problem is with my music, some of them have a lot of bass and others dont. I would love to get some clarity headphones though ^^ Not a basshead either :l

The thing is you might find it hard to like both at the same time and will end up ignoring one in favor of the other.

i had no success with Audio Technicas....dunno y...its just personal...i cant make sense of their soundstage...one way or another. 

w5000...w1000x...i tried to like them..zzz

 

the other heartbreaker was the T5p...its v clear, n bass amissing for a thousandbucks...and those magneticflux are scaring me somewhat..for some unfound reasons.:P

the edition8 too...i know its metal made from outerspace...my pro900 killed that can in 5 secs.

 

above are just personal...u might find them the best cans u ever had. n i am happy for u.

I didn't enjoy the T5p as much as others but they definitely weren't bad or the worst I've bought.

simply put this headphone is contaminated with bass from one extreme to the other, theres no mids and highs (well, there is but they're overpowered). Its like hearing music on a subwoofer only. Awful.

I like bass, but not this way.

The two worst headphones I've bought price wise Beats by Dre Studio (Before they were popular) But the worst sounding I've bought are these $7 Mountain Dew branded iems that sound so distant from your ears, it's really funny really because I kind of think they sounded like the Beats Solo HD tongue.gif

Not trying to start a war...but that's kind of the point of the XB500s.

From the product page (http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&partNumber=MDRXB500#overview):

 

"dramatic bass"
"Step Up to Big Bass"

"...Deliver big, booming bass."

"Seriously Low Frequencies, Serious Bass"

"monster bass"

"perfect for beats with a killer bass line."

Nowhere does it mention treble, mids, highs, soundstage or imaging. Probably because it was specifically designed for none of that to exist. xD

Honest question. What were you expecting out of these things and what lead you to believe that they'd be anything other than complete bass monsters?

I owned the XB700 first, which was fantastic at being bassy, yet having some semblance of clarity. Then Head-fi mentioned that the XB500 was actually better. Should've known better than to trust head-fi on bassy cans.
