    Sony XB500 vs. 700?

    Ok I know this is over used but no thread i've seen has answered my specific question. I need to know what the difference IN BASS is between the two headphones. I heard that the 700's go deeper but the 500's are punchier, is that true? i'm looking for bass that will thump my head. Because my...

    Very airy/detailed headphones for EDM <$300 that can compete with sennheiser ie8 unamped

    So Ive had dt770/80, xb700 and the ie8's.. i ditched the 770's a while ago because they just didn't hit the spot with regards detail/clarity.. sounded a bit blunt tbh.. then i switched to xb700 which were good  for a while and then finally one day I tried my ie8's on the computer and despite...

    Possible improvements to equipment? (Sony XB700)

    Because of the comfort level of these headphones, I hesitate when I think about buying new headphones. Anyone who has owned these know what I mean. What I would like to know is if there are any other headphones with similar comfort and better sound quality. :)

    What headphone amp can push my 'XB500' to the limits without 'Clipping' them?

    Hello headfiers, currently i own a pair of Sony xb500 headphones and i power them from a fiio e11 amplifier. With this setup, when i crank up the volume on the amplifier to a high volume level, so the subwoofer bass goes crazy, the drivers start to make a clipping sound. This also happens on my...

    You say the beats are overpriced... what is a headphone that is similar in sound but cheaper?

    I went to best buy and listened to some of their headphones for a little while.  I listened to the studio's for maybe 5 min and liked them.  I'm use to my $10 ear buds that have no bass and are not very good sounding.  I really like listening to music in my car because it is more engaging with...

    Hello headfiers, i have an issue with my Sony XB500 headphones.

    Mad Dog owners............were you once a basshead? Because I gotta know how you adjusted............. not really feeling the bass with Mad Dogs.  I'm used to Sony XB700's and M Audio Q40's for a point of reference.  I love bass and my truck has 1200 watts with a 10" sub so yes, you could say I like the thump.   I hear and see on graphs that the MD has plenty of deep bass. ...
