Not much bass on the Sony MDR XB500 - Page 3

I just got mine and didn't try them enough but I wasn't satisfied enough when I tried them at the first moment I got them out of the box and that's why I'm asking.

Kindly reply.

I honestly don't feel that the actual sound itself changes much from the time you take it out of the box versus X hours later. What I do recommend though is since these are brand new and you just started listening through the XB500, give yourself some time to grow accustom to the sound. 

 

Usually its just a matter of having your mind get use to it. After that you start to appreciate what qualities they bring and can even nitpick and what things you don't like. For the price I think these are great headphones that deserve some time before you pass ultimate judgement. 

 

One last thing, what type of music do you listen to? These are great for EDM or bassy music. If you're listening to something like jazz or vocal heavy music then they will definitely sound sub par off of the XB500 imo unless you manage to find an Equalizer setting that pleases you. Give it a week before you decide on what to do with these though.

I think the Sony's isolate plenty good though, like I said it may be the shape of your ears

Or may be you're convinced with something that you don't want to change or discuss and if so, then why do you login to such forums? is it to convince others with your opinion only or what? try to just to say your opinion and let others also do that (and have more polite patience)

Get an amp like the digizoid ZO2 it adds tons of bass.
