Sennheiser HD449 vs Sony MDR XB-500 ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello there,

Which one of them is better?In term of bass?

Thanks!

The 449 will have cleaner sounding bass with a nice smooth downward tilt to the frequency response.  This makes it pretty easy to listen to for long periods.

The XB has tremendously exaggerated bass making it sound loose and boomy.  It is probably one of the bassiest headphones out there.

I read both reviews and I kinda saw that the x500's are the most convinient headphones between the hd449 and xb700.So,excuse me 'cause I ask again but which should I choose between this three?
Thank you very much for help!

I like Sennheiser a lot - but the fanboi stuff doesn't belong in the help forum. That stuff doesn't "help" anyone.
