The fx3x have great clean bass, but peaky/harsh highs. Bass is one of a kind, so expect a sidegrade in that respect. The xb90 are a much warmer sound, with better mids and smoother highs. Bass goes low and stay in their place. Easily one of my all time faves.
If you want a great bass phone for ~50 (looks like they are $40 on amazon) go for the cardo basso. More basshead kind of bass. Mids not as good, but smooth highs and a better fit than the Sony.Edited by daveyostrow - 12/14/14 at 8:08pm
