these headphones are amazing for the price. i also have the 500's and Sennheiser hd280, Shure srh 440, Philips the stretch and many more.i use these sometimes but not often sense i have the 500's but when i want a less heavy option i use these. these also do not look very good but its fine i dont really care about looks. for when im in the studio i use my sennheisers or shures. i will do this to review more: bass 10/10 mids 8/10 treble 7.5/10 overall sound 9/10 build 7/10 looks 6/10 overall 8/10 the cable on mine started to short after 3 months so i stoped using them after another 3 months i used them again and the problem was gone?!?!?!? i dont know how but i was happy. over all these are nice but the 500's are much better i suggest getting them unless you dont want big headphones or you have less money. btw if your thinking or getting beats by dre DONT THEY SUCK. get any of the sony mrd xb line there 10x better and cost much less.
Sony MDR-XB300 Extra Bass Headphones
from NY on 10/29/2011
A brisk winter morning. Bright sunshine. Frigid conditions. Snow on the ground. The bus stop. A cool breeze pressing against the face. A tense day ahead. Sudden warmth and comfort over the ears. Sonic accuracy. The morning commute. Relaxation. Perfect. The Sony MDR-XB300 Extra Bass headphones plunge you into a stunning world of deep bass performance bliss. The sound quality coming from these headphones is so good that it will just bring a smile to your face on a cold winter day. To state that the Sony XB stereo headphones are lightweight, snug, and produce natural sound tones from music, movies, and computer games is a profound understatement. This pair of headphones offers supremely comfortable oversized cushioned ear pads that cover the most acoustically accurate 30mm dynamic stereo headphone drivers on the market. The Sony headphones are compatible with virtually any audio, video, TV, DVD player, VCR, digital video recorder, portable video game system, or computer product that features a 3.5mm or 1/4â€� component stereo headphone jack. The 3.9 ft. Y-shaped durable headphone cord provides optimal length, reduced tangles, and freedom of movement for the Sony Walkman that I have connected to it. This itemâ€™s gold-plated L-shaped stereo mini-plug connector offers seamless connectivity to your portable entertainment devices and maximum signal transfer from the source component to your ears. The expertly constructed headband is highly adjustable for maximum flexibility during a lengthy private listening session. I donâ€™t notice any other outside noise distractions while wearing this item, but I admit that I am always engrossed in the music that is playing from these sophisticated stereo headphone drivers. Vocal clarity is superbly transmitted across a lush dynamic audio landscape. Midrange response, where most musical instrument reproduction resides in the audio universe, is nicely-defined, balanced, and harmoniously detailed. This unitâ€™s overall sound quality is warm, delicate during select musical passages, nuanced in the treble range, and not the slightest bit rolled off at the low or high end frequency ranges. If you are passionate about portable musical reproduction, then the Sony MDR-XB300 headphones are the best choice in the over-the-ear headphone product category with respect to its price class and driver type. The Sony MDR-XB300 XB stereo headphones offer an audiophile feature set for the budget conscious consumer. Those high class portable audio features include: The Sony Extra Bass headphones sport an attractive appearance with its large over-the-ear design, sturdy construction, adjustable headband for maximum comfort, silver ear cup exterior finish, and a 3.9 ft. flat Y-type cord. The Sony MDR-XB300 headphones feature a sealed acoustic design for improved sound isolation characteristics, direct vibe structure for the highest quality sound output, 3.5mm gold-plated L-shaped stereo mini plug for compatibility with the widest range of portable, MP3, computer, and home audio equipment possible. The Sony Extra Bass headphones provide the following portable audiophile accoutrements: stereo reproduction, 30mm dome type XB driver units, neodymium magnet high-energy speaker drivers, two diaphragms and gaskets for extended low frequency response, king sized pressure-relieving ear cushions, left/right ear cup placement marks, 1.2" ear cup thickness, 3.1" ear cup diameter, over-the-head supra-aural design, Copper-Clad Aluminum Wire Voice Coil, lightweight double-sided flat cord, 1000mW power handling capacity, 5-22,000Hz frequency response, 24 ohms at 1 kHz impedance rating, 100db/mW sensitivity rating, and this unit's weight is 4.23 ounces without cord. The Sony headphones includes a 90-day parts and labor limited manufacturer warranty, handsome black/silver exterior finish, Sony logo, high quality product packaging with printed limited warranty statement, and it comes with pamphlet-style operating instructions. With its excellent stereo channel separation, localization of sound between string and percussion based instruments, exceptional low bass reproduction performance, transparent midrange tonality, clear voice quality on news, weather, or sports talk radio broadcasts, and clear vocals on country, rock, grunge, blues, alternative new wave, and disco music forms, the Sony MDR-XB300 Extra Bass stereo headphones provide a spectacular portable audio experience that amount to a riveting personal listening experience. The Sony Extra Bass headphones are more than worthy of their very economical price tag. The Sony headphones are ideal for use at home, at work, outdoors where portable audio is required, traveling, the daily exercise routine, listening to the radio, and a quality audio experience through any of the yearly seasons. I spend most of my time with the Sony MDR-XB300 headphones while listening to my assortment of Sony boomboxes for an utterly amazing privately enjoyed portable audio performance. I also use a headphone extension cord with the Sony Extra Bass headphones when I listen to a component based stereo system. The Sony headphones do not come with a carrying pouch for storage, in-line volume control, or a gold-plated unimatch stereo plug adapter for connection to a component stereo headphone jack. Please note that you will need a 1/8â€� to 1/4â€� stereo headphone plug adapter to connect the Sony MDR-XB300 headphones to a home stereo system. The Sony stereo headphones are compatible with a portable FM/AM radioâ€™s 3.5mm monaural earphone jack. The customer will be able to hear audio out of both speaker drivers from the pocket radio with the use of a 3.5mm monaural-to-stereo headphone plug adapter that is attached to the stereo mini plug connector of the Sony Extra Bass headphones. I believe that elite headphone drivers must be able to reproduce high frequency or treble notes accurately in order to present a realistic concert venue listening experience to the end user. The high frequency range ordinarily includes high-pitched vocals and/or instruments like cymbals and keyboards. The low frequencies or bass notes that are produced by headphone drivers originate from bass guitar or drums. Midrange driver frequencies contain most vocals and musical instruments such as guitar, keyboards, and drums. The Sony headphones reproduce midrange and low bass frequencies with extreme competence. This pair of Sony Extra Bass headphones offers dome type drivers, compelling stereo sound, and they can produce the entire spectrum of sound that is associated with todayâ€™s music. Ultimately, headphone speaker driver quality and its subsequent audio reproduction depend on multiple factors which include the type of materials that are used to make the drivers, the sensitivity rating of a particular speaker driver, and the quality of the source component that the headphones are connected to. Stereo headphones with a higher sensitivity rating can play more loudly, with less distortion, without turning the volume up on the connected component to maximum volume. The Sony Extra Bass headphones feature a high sensitivity rating that is measured in decibels. Additionally, the better performing Sony headphones feature neodymium magnet units, large speaker driver diameter that is measured in millimeters, advanced diaphragm design for deep bass response, high-end voice coils, super comfortable ear pads, adjustable headband, professional build quality, tangle resistant connecting cord, a gold-plated mini plug connector, and they can reproduce bass notes that are on par with a home theatreâ€™s dedicated subwoofer. Low bass response should be realized without the assistance of custom or preset equalizer sound modes on the source equipment. The Sony MDR-XB300 headphones meet all the criteria listed above rather easily to become an outstanding headphone product that trounces its competition in terms of overall sound quality. It is obvious that this Sony product can recreate a live band, studio, or night club musical atmosphere anywhere headphone use is considered appropriate. Lastly, the Sony MDR-XB300 Extra Bass headphones transmit glorious, full-bodied, and rich sound tones from any stereo component that it is plugged into. Good Luck. Enjoy.

from cedar rapids iowa on 10/7/2011
these head phones are amazing, skull candy has head phones with similar prices but seem to be years away. I think that even easily compare to Dr.Dre. durability is good, but i think dr.dre's are better for durability. plus they wont catch your hair when adjusting them, much like most skull candies do.

most comfortable headphone ever
from bhubaneswar on 4/1/2011
Affordable, Comfortable, good bass & sound
i can't express any thing because this is the best headphone i ever had at this price tag . it is highly comfortable than any other pc headphone as most of the headphone gives lots of pain to ear after wearing for longer times . Gamer like me can use it in counter strike , COD , etc.
