Product Reviews for Sony MDR-XB40EX Extra Bass Earphone
from Pittsburg, Ca on 12/30/2010
and the carrying case., nice, Rich bass
I got these headphones for $23 off ebay and they are amazing. Before I got this, I had Sony Bass Booster (mdr-ed21lp). The bass is not so good when you listen to it on an old iPod. But when I used Sony Extra Bass headphones on my old iPod, the bass is really powerful and rich. I usually put it on Electronic or Treble Booster and the sound is amazing. I rated it 4 stars because the sound quality is almost the same as my other headphones. Only better and cleaner bass and noise-canceling. My headphones are refurbished but works like new.
By Far the Best Headphones I Ever Had

Amaaaaazzzziiinnnggg performance, Huge Bass, never dies/breaks, No Static, perfect treble, somewhat noise-cancelling
i didnt exactly get these by buying them, my friend found them in my school somewhere and gave them to me in return for a pair he borrowed from me and lost. but i have never had headphones this good before these. ive had them for 3 years (and someone else had them before, adding more time) with very much overuse, winding the cord around things and stretching it, dropping my mp3 and putting alot of weight on the cord without breaking (have a pretty heavy mp3), accidentally pulling on the cord part where it goes into my ears and it never coming out from the headphone like all my other headphones did, listening to music way too high in my ears and it always never giving up and playing just the same, and all that. im also a rap beat producer (i use fl studio & pro tools) and i love the bass these headphones give me. it sounds like i have professional subwoofer speakers in my ear, like there is even a subwoofer inside the headphones. sound is perfect. the treble is just the right highs, too. the headphones are somewhat noise-canceling (i cant hear anything else when im listening to music) and even when im not listening to music it's hard to tell what other peoiple are saying when its in your ears, even only in one ear. no static at all. works best for listening to rap & hip hop, rnb, techno, house, dubstep, or that stuff (i dont listen to house or techno or dubstep but ive seen that it works good for them too). works good with mastering audio also because you can hear what itll feel like in the club with a subwoofer without having one. music never has sounded as good to me anymore without these headphones. whenever mine break or get lost or stolen, if they do, im no matter what getting a new pair.

and just great quality overall, booming base, rich audio
sometimes they are to heavy and they slip out of my ear
these are the nest headphones i have ever used and i have used lots of different kinds and they are even better than Bose headphones. if you like a lot of bass in your music then these are the ones for you!!!!!!!!
Good bass but not as impressive
from Panam on 11/6/2010
Design, price, Sound
almost the same sound as other headphones Sony
Buy these headphones with the illusion that would have a bass impressive, a bass ever heard with other headphones, but to my disappointment, these headphones sound nearly as other Sony I had before, the MDR-EX35LP.
