Does anyone have any suggestions?
Sony XB400 - Page 2
Gear mentioned in this thread:
i have the xb400, i am no audiophile, i want to start getting good headphones etc, but in my opinion $40 in Amazon... Not sure you can beat that. The bass goes super deep, playing bass boosted songs from the BassBooster2 on youtube (you can download songs from his channel in 1400kpbs wav files) the headphones sound amazing. Rap/hip-hop, dubstep, electronic, and some pop is what i listen to. these headphones dont distort unless there is too much bass. Normal songs barely have more bass unless its intended too, and bass boosted is... OMG cant imagine what the xb500, xb800, and xb1000 sound like...
i have blue ones too :) they look nice, only problem is the shiny outside scratches easily. the cord got stuck to my rolling chair when i pushed off the desk, the fell and know have little scratches :((. they aren't very noticeable tho. these headphones run great from my ipod touch 5th gen cuz they dont need a lot of power to run, so i think the fiio amp will be useless (but i have never tried it)

Iv'e had these headphones for around 4 months now. These are very comfortable i wear glasses and i can wear these for hours. The bass on these is amazing, it literally vibrates your ears. Compared to the Beats by Dre solos the XB400 have better bass ( more bass, deeper, clearer) but the Solos have better highs and upper mids. But the price difference is also a lot so i don't know if that is a good comparison. Any ways i do recommend the XB 400s if you are a Bass Head and don't want to spend too much for headphones, since these are only around 45$ on Amazon.
Can they be opened so you access the speaker Pcb? I have not seen any Pics of it being taken apart so I am just unsure of it right now.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Bought a broken pair off of ebay for a couple bucks and fixed them. These headphones are definately what I was looking for. I will now do what I can to try to open the ear cups and mod them for more portable use. Will post pics if I somehow manage to get it open.
