Sony XB500? PLEASE HELP
Gear mentioned in this thread:
They have more bass, yes. They also respond quite well to equalization which can balance out the highs and mids quite a bit.
That being said, you can equalize the M50s lower end up to nearly the same point while maintaining a higher level of resolution. I have both of them, If I had to only have one the XB500s would be the first to go, no questions asked. Even if I exclusively listened to basshead music.
I use a FiiO E17.
You can obviously EQ the bass higher on the XB500, however they'll distort at a lower level than the M50s.
