    Took delivery of my HD-25 II basic yesterday. Paid £130 shipped, seemed reasonable. Love these cans, comfy, good isolation, nerdy techie good looks and have yet to find music that doesn't sound great through them. Rockboxed iPod 4g > LOD > SMSL SAP-4S

    Sony MDR-XB500 vs Sony MDR-XB700

    new sony XB500s. problem?

    Quote: This issue is actually mentioned in the documentation that accompanies the headphones. Mine do it too, it's a side effect of the great seal that the huge squishy pads provide. Nothing to worry about fellow basshead ;)
