I just bought the Sony XPA-3IP from amazon for ~130 based on recommendations from people in in the sales thread but I think I might have been too hasty. For the listed price, would you guys recommend these headphones? Are there any better headphones available for around the same price?

Gear mentioned in this thread:
i have recently ordered xba-3 for 130$ including delivery charges,,,after my excellent meelectronics a151 were stolen
1)is it worth in this range??
2)i have heard that it will not work very well with sources having high impedence
so what portable player is suitable here??
do i need an amp for these 2 devices??
i have a sansa clip+ and xperia mini cellphone
I directly compared the XBA-3s and ATHCKM500s, and the ATHCKM500s sounded far, far worse. It was significantly muddier, and the highs were very muffled/muted on some tracks. XBA-3 >>>>> ATHCKM500.
