I'm kinda new to here, so if possible, please don't use technical terms .... Thanks in advance
I've been trying to buy a new headphone for my new phone (which I haven't bought yet, but probably it will be the Xperia Z), and I was stuck between the in-ear earphone XBA-40 or the over-ear, wireless headphone MDR-1RBT.
And yes, I'm a Sony fanboy.
Originally I want to buy xba-4 as many sites say that xba-4 sounds good, but then Sony released the newer xba-40. From what I read in this forum, xba-40 sounds better than the xba-4.
What got my eyes with the MDR-1RBT is its design and the wireless function, and studio quality sound. At first I also considered the noise-canceling version MDR-1RNC. Although most says the sound and the noise canceling function is good, some also says that it hisses in quite environment.
I usually listen to pop and rock music, instrumentals (mostly game or movie soundtracks), and some classical musics.
Could you tell me which one I should buy? Or any other recommendations (price range 300~500 USD)?
Thx a lot
I'm studying in China now, so I'm buying my headphone there. The thing is, the pricing is different than in USA. If the item is sold by official seller + made in China, it's usually cheaper than in USA (MDR-1RNC for 2300 yuan in Sony Store - about 380 USD), but if it's not meant to be sold in China, like it has to be imported in small quantity, it's ridiculously expensive (MDR-X10 for around 3000 yuan - or almost 500 USD).
