I just recieved the "Sony MDR-XB300" cans I bought for my 9 year old boy to go with his iPod Touch as he's beginning to take after me and I want to give him a little start and nudge into the world of audio.
Anyways.... I bought these on ebay knowing its always the flip of a coin.
Im sat here listening to them now as I 1. Wanted to make sure they're ok, And 2. burn them in a little.
Glad I decided to do so as these are possibly THE WORST cans I've ever tortured my ears with.
Now, Two things are in my mind, Either they're fakes, And if so then yes, I totally expect nothing but the lowest of low quality.
However, If they turn out to be the genuine thing from Sony, Then someone in the department who designed and made these needs to be shot!
Actually, Fake or Real, WHOEVER built these horrible nasty excuse for a pair of headphones needs to be subjected to a slow, painful and horrible death!
Seriously, I have a pair of Skullcandy TI's that I thought were the worst Ild ever heard that just outperformed these things by
( P.s. - The ebayer has been sent a polite but very angry email. )
