Sony mdr XB90ex..Are they "Made in China" too????

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi

Just received my XB90ex from a trusted online retailer.First thing i noticed,that behind the box,it was written that it is Made in China.Shouldn't it be Made in Japan.

 

 

Also the sound quality is somewhat just a few steps ahead of my old Tekfusion twinwoofers.

May be I am over expecting or it needs some burn-in time???

 

I am worried because I have heard that they are only manufactured in Japan(written japanese import everywhere) while mine are made in china.

So does that makes a difference???

 

Thanks

If someone was making fake XB90s, they would mark them "Made in Japan".

But lots of stuff (like headphones) are being made in China, that use to be made somewhere else.

I'm sure Sony likes to cut costs, like everyone else.

Yes,they were around $30 cheaper.

@darksmart from India? Guessing by the tekfusion and the cost of xb90ex. I also owned a tekfusion, hated it. Broke in a month. Is the Sony xb90ex that bad? What is your opinion after using it for some time?

XB90EX was great from the first use. I like it.
