Any alternative for the Sony xb500\700?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

 

I have a couple of xb500 bought some years ago on sale, my problem is I can't seem to find anything to replace them. The xb500 are light, extremely comfortable and has good bass.

 

The ones I have the same problem, uncomfortable over the ears. So any alternative with soft cushions that encompass the ears?

Hi,

 

You should consider Beyerdynamic DT770 80 Ohm versions with velour earpads. If you want to make them shine you'll need some extra amplification - Fiio E11 could do the job.

 

Best Luck!
