    Sony MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth headphones

    Is it wrong that I'm completely in love with the bass boost? Yes it's boomy as hell but I've got my 1Rs for (somewhat) analytical listening so I've been thinking about keeping these stock and accepting them for the bass monsters they are.

    Sony MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth headphones

    Initial impressions -   Amazing build quality, leaps and bounds better than the MDR-1R in that aspect. Pretty weird considering that the 1Rs were more expensive when I got them. Bass is insane, I'm listening wired while charging so this is without bass boost. Honestly I can't even begin to...

    Sony MDR-XB950BT Bluetooth headphones

    Getting them today, I can't wait.   Also, does doing the Dynamat mod on these change anything? I did it on my MDR-1Rs last year and they sound awesome now.

    Sony has new headphones, MDR-1R

    Finally solved the creaking issue! As I thought it was just the hinge making noise. So I opened it up and with a toothpick applied very small amounts of vaseline to both the hinges. Put it back together and the creaking noise is gone! Also upon closer inspection those silicon rings that sony put...

    Quote:   Momentums look like they're trying too hard, and personally I cannot stand V-Modas, sorry :p . They look way too flashy, gaudy and just overall trying even harder than the momentums. The earcup design reminds me of medieval armor, lol. The MDRs look understated and classy, I dig...

    Maybe the song was badly mixed? Haven't really experienced that tbh.

    Quote:   It's a bit too mid centric sometimes :/ Things can sound veiled and muffled, especially older daft punk songs ( matters to me a lot because I'm a huge daft punk fan)   The bass though, phew, it's absolutely brilliant. I prefer the bass on these to the bass on the pro700mk2s (...

    Quote:   They really shine with a nice treble boost and some recessed low-mids. Vocals jump out and hi-hats sound much crispier. Instrument seperation also improves because of the lack of the "veiled" sound signature that these have stock.

    Not again!!?? Unsubbed. Fwiw I don't think you should buy Heaphones at all. Just keep your LPs and be happy.

    Quote: I thought the isolation was horrible. But the flipside is that the clamp is very, very light making them comfortable to wear for an extended period of time.
