Hi, I saw some Sony XBA-3 on sale a couple days ago for 120-ish USD (1,550 MXN). There are a some things I've been considering though:
Right now I don't really need a new set of headphones, but, I wouldn't mind getting some nicer sounding ones, compared to what I have right now.
I have a pair of Sony MDR EX-90 LP, I love them (and got them really cheap too!). This are for those times where I want to have a nicer sound quality.
A pair of Sony MDR NC-33 for really noisy environments, Who'd have though studying in my college's library would be so hard? D:
My phone's headset for those "I want music now and my nicer headphones are in my bag/hard to reach ATM".
Here, the usual price for the XBA-3 is 220-ish USD (3000-ish MXN)
Now, I would buy the XBA-3 to get better stuff compared to what my EX-90 LP can do, including sound, quality of the cables and sound isolation. The music I listen to doesn't have any lyrics and I prefer an U shaped EQ.
So, what do you guys think? coming from EX-90 LP, is the upgrade to XBA-3 worth it? Should I wait until my EX-90 LP die before I get a new set of headphones?
Finally, yeah, I've been reading some reviews about the XBA-3 in this site but, I saw none that talks about them and the EX-90 LP.
Thanks in advance ^_^
