Great headphones for the price
from Washington D.C. on 8/15/2012
Great sound and bass, very inexpensive, lightweight
uncomfortable after 30 min or so, leakage
I bought these headphones after my skullcandy ones broke. They have the same cons, but these have so much better sound and bass. They cost a lot less than most headphones out there and are prob better than most as well. For $50, this is more than i was expecting. However, after about 30 mins of use, my head started to get uncomfortably hot, and my jaw starting getting sore. Another con is the leakage. I don't play these on full vol because they are very loud, i play them on about 70-85% vol and people still tell me to lower it because they can hear it and all. I would MOST DEFF recommend these to anyone. However, I would not recommend using these on a bus or something because people can get mad. They are perfect for home or in a car and what not. I wish these were slightly more comfortable, but for $50 these are the best headphones available. Inexpensive and amazing.
Good quality, bad comfort

These headphones have pretty good sound quality and delivered their promise on extra bass, but i feel like these headphones are too centered on the bass and that the vocals and the other instruments are just kind of a background to the music. Also, after about 15 minutes of listening, the headphones started to make my ears sore. Even though the cushions are very soft and spongy, they start to hurt after a relativity short period of time. Plus, the plastic headband isn't the best either. Overall, these headphones would be good if you would use them lightly and if you didn't want to spend too much money, but choose something else if you are looking for the best overall experience.
Great bass, total leakage
from Waukegan, IL on 4/25/2012
I often take airline trips that exceed 20 hours (with a stop and layover). I play Drum and Bass music very loud to relax. I have found these to give quite a full range of sound, great for music immersion. Also because I am wearing these extensively, they don't give that pain on the top and bottom of the ears or the jaw. I can sleep with them on, due to the comfortable pads and music clarity. They also drown out the surrounding noise well such as aircraft engine noise or a whiny boss. Unfortunately these do tend to leak the sound in detail. Sometimes people sing along, sometimes they tap me on the shoulder. Either way, I don't recommend them for using in public or the office.

Prior to purchase, i was not sure how the MDR-XB300 would hold up, yet i have had these for almost two years and they are still in pristine condition, despite being used daily in all sorts of conditions. The bass is amazing, and the sound in general far surpasses that of the popular "Beats" headphones by Dr. Dre. The sound, quality, and all around looks are fantastic, and these were a great buy. The MDR-XB300 by Sony is definately worth its price and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great pair of headphones.
