    These are my 3rd pair of Sony phones in two years. I consider myself an audiophile and have a very good ear. My V600's grew legs and were replaced with the MDR ZX700's, my faves. I consider the specs very heavily and like the fact that Sony publishes theirs. Be proud Sony!! But, when an email that B&H sent me and I saw the reduced price on the X phones and the awsome looks and the total package they came with, I jumped immediately. Even though they are a little lite in higher end, I love the xtra bass over my 700's. Plus, they are perfect for travelling, which I do quite frequently. And perfect for idevices, like my ipod touch. Now, if you want to talk about looks and fashion, these are out of this freaking world. Crazy hi-tech looks. If you're in the market for headphones, buy these. You won't be disappointed.

    I'm a trained professional recording engineer. In general Sony makes some very decent pro studio headphones. These X Headphones are an absolute joke, developed to mass market to fans of the X Factor demographic with Simon Cowell's name on them. These were made to attempt to compete with Beats. The bass is extrememly muddy. This mudd goes into the mids and the high end is lost. It's a beautiful design, why would they not attempt to get the sound balanced? These are literally the worst sounding higher priced headphones I have ever heard.
    A last Note...I don't know a single person in any professional studio that uses Beats. These types of headphones (Like the Sony X Red)are all saturation marketed to a certain demographic, and that demographic is not the professional audio engineering sector that makes hit records, no matter what anyone tells you.

        I use these for listening to music at work, and the noise isolation that they provide is ridiculous. The bass that these headphones pick up is amazing. I would recommend these headphones to anyone.

        Great Headphones

        By Maxx

        from Bay Area, California

        Comments about X Headphones (Red):

        The sound quality and sound stage is awesome and these probably aren't even all the way through the 100 hour burn in. I listen to a lot of rap and while most headphones don't articulate the lows enough or the highs and mids are too harsh, that's not the case with these pair of headphones. i think these headphones have a slight trend on the low end but in no way does it drown out the other sounds. Bass isn't ridiculously in your face like some of these people say. I'm coming from ATH-M30s which have a non existent low end so this was a great transition. I think bass is heavier only if the instrumentation of the song is very open and simple. I listened to One Love and I was blown away because the baseline was much more pronounced but not overpowering in anyway. Excelllent price too! $ when I got these! I reccomend these for listening. As for monitoring be wary that the bass sounds more pronounced in the mix but it's fixable with a pair of actual studio monitors (speakers) still a grade a+ headphones!!!

                  I was extremely pleased with these up to the point where the ear cushions started to degrade (less than 1 year). There is NO replacement made for them. So once they begin to go its over. Very disappointing with an otherwise great product.

                  Comments about X Headphones (Red):

                  I have been searching for headphones that can realistically reproduce the kick in a bass drum for decades... I have finally found them with these! Hold on to your deepest thoughts because they are about to be blown away. It is like having a sub wooffer inserted into the mix of sound for a presence you will never forget. Enjoy

                            Product performed better that expected. The bass is deep and the high notes are clearly defined.

                            Clarity of sound excellent throughout entire range.

                                Great buy especially since the headset was half price. Much easier on the ears versus ear bud. Cord is great too - doesn't tangle or curl but it could be another foot longer (currenty about 4').

                                I use it with my Xperia Z Ultra and a FiiO E11
                                The quality is outstanding but I do EQ it to bring out the mids and highs.
                                The sound is warmer which I prefer to harsh bright headphones.

                                Without EQ, I wouldnt use it with my particular phone though.
                                With others it might be different.

                                  Great set of headphones with terrific dynamic range. B&H offered them on sale at 50% of list price -- couldn't resist the deal, and glad I bought!

                                    I received the headphones as a gift. Headphones are super comfortable to wear. They amplify the sound coming out of my computer and ipad. Very nice product and very happy so far.

                                    Purchased for teenage son but couldn't spend the $ for the DREs for simar styling. He mainly used it for listening for concentration during down time during basketball games (as a player). He loved them. I had listened to my daughters DREs (Christmas present) and found these to be quite crisp and not muffled. Wore them often when son not using and found them very comfortable and discerning with wide range of music from pop to 80s rock to jazz. Given the sale and relative price to the DREs, I felt the value was too great to pass up and ordered a pair for me. I won't be wearing these outside as I do not want to be a teenAge wannabe, but will just be hip in the comfort of my home, enjoying great headphones.

                                    These are the ugliest headphones ever created by humans. Seriously ridiculous. Huge and shiny and adorned with sic-fi-esque decorative hilarity. The entire thing is covered in silver plastic, plastic covered in fake silver aluminum, plastic covered in fake silver steel, and a small amount of real silver metal. Even the acoustic fabric inside the ear cups is silver. So of course they are called Red. I hope that's "(Red)" so some of the silver money is going to charity.They sound fairly good for the price range, though a bit on the boom-sizzle end of sound reproduction so they are obviously going for the Dr. Dre Beats sound. These at $[$] sound better than the Beats junk at 3 times that price. My kids love the sound. 'nough said.Very comfortable to wear. Really a decent pair of headphones as long as you use them in the privacy of your own home. And. never. in. public.

                                    Fits very comfortably. Sound quality is good but lacks the highs. Bass is not as boomy as other reviews have mentioned. Overall, good headphones.

                                    I own and have used many types of headphones. First, these are very comfortable. These headphones are very easy to wear. They look well made and stylish. The sound isolation is very good. As for the audio quality my hearing is not perfect but my son, who has Beats, tried and stated the sound is as good as Beats. The addition of a microphone is great - that means if I want I can use these with my iPhone when I want.

                                    Great bass thst does not distort like the beats headphones for a fraction of the cost. Plus it was half off during black friday season so the deal was even sweeter!Cord locks into place so it doesnt come off on accident. Nicely folds up compactly too. I would have gotten the black one the red one was the one on sale who who cares.Only complaint is the volume doesn't seem to go up that high. It will increase on a device with volume control... but on the tablet its limited to the power output of the device. Kinda hard to keep the volume down when listening to this headphone.
