I think Sony is de-evolving a bit with these sound-wise, turning into Beats-mimicking cave men "ug, we more like Beats, look more pretty, sound more dookie, we get more paper with funny face on them, ug."  Either that or this is the long-awaited retribution for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Either way, I am NOT amused.

Where is the review of the 800's!!??

Spent some time with the XB600 this evening. I think I recognize the sound signature from the Beats Studio. Hot highs and boomy bass. Midrange is recessed. I think the Beats Studio has slightly more controlled boom in the bass, but are very close.

I haven't opened the XB800 yet. I will do that in the morning.

Feel free to write one up!!??

 

Dude's only had it for a few hours, and he's got a life.  We'll all have to wait until he's good and ready (or we can go buy our own).

I'm looking forward to hearing about the 800.  I have been looking at that one since it hit the website.  I still rank my XB700 right up there with my favorite headphones.  Definitely will be watching for some thoughts.

They look great. im looking forward your review to decide if i go with the 600 or the 800, 

 

Do you know if Sony will also replace the xb 1000, perhaps with the 1100?

 

thanks,

Any first impressions of the 800 yet?  I saw your video said there will be a comparison of the 800 to the 700.  Looking forward to that.  They certainly did a major overhaul of design.

Looking forward to the review of both! Although given that you say the XB600 mids are even MORE recessed, the XB800 might be the ones I'll have to go with. I loved the XB500s and the XB700s, and these are so damn attractive, I hope they turn out well :)

oh god, sony.What have you become? They LOOK nice, I'm not too big on the On ear design but that mini review of the XB600 made my cringe.
