I've not seen too much love for any of these models for some odd reason.
After a bit of a painful headphone buying dilemma, while simply trying on the headphones at Target one day, I came across the XB600s sitting on the Sony rack (surprise, next to the beats rack.) along with the overpriced X headphones. Having a hard time dealing with the XB500s for the lack of comfort for me, I decided to try them on to see how on-ears felt. Holy jesus they were so comfortable. The way the fit was phenomenal. Not too light, not heavy, not feeling it's sitting on my ears or my head. I tried on the X, same thing. Reading online afterwards, I heard that these have a poorer sound quality than the 500s. This wouldn't be a HUGE deal to me, only I feel like I should be moving upwards. The extreme bass getting nerfed is not what matters to me about that, it's the fact there could possibly be LESS treble/mids. On top of that, price is a bit of an issue. Has anybody tried both the XB400s & XB600s, or the XB600s & XB800s and has anything to say about the differences in sound quality? Have not seen much on anything, pretty disappointing considering these are the only headphones that don't feel like they're destroying my head.
