Feel each pulsating thump with the super-powerful MDR-XB800 XB Series over-the-ear headphones. Designed for today's popular music lovers, these Extra Bass headphones combine a unique direct vibe structure for a tight acoustic seal with high sensitivity XB driver units. Additionally, these headphones deliver powerful and dynamic bass response while the compact, dual-folding design and ultra-comfortable earpads ensure that these cans will go where you do.
Just got them. Straight out of the box (0 burn-in) the bass is MUCH tighter than the XB500 and the sub-bass rumbles as low as 10Hz. Purr. The bass doesn't bleed into the mids, mids and highs are crystal clear, with excelent resolution ala K167/K701. Isolation is second to none, even more than the AKG K167's. This new technology from SONY (Advanced Direct Vibe Structure) is nothing but stunning. Best basshead phones I have ever heard. Let's give them some 50 hours now. If they improve even further, is a dream come true for just 129€. The bass quantity/punch blows the RHP-10's out of the water.
They have more mid-bass than the XB500 at low level volumes. I can't stand more than 50% volume and 0 EQ. These are the first phones I've tried that don't need any EQ.
How come these just cost 129€?!
