    Sony MDRXB50AP reviews

    MDR-XB50AP Extra Bass Earbud Headset (Blue) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forget everything you know about bass These things are like having a 2.1 speaker set right in your ears. The bass is PUNCHY, and brought right to the front of your listening experience. Audiophiles/purists might not want to consider these because the mids and highs take back seat to the bass. It can be toned down in your MP3 player's EQ for a more balanced sound though. They sound great when properly equalized, and would make a fine addition to your mobile entertainment experience. Another plus is the wire is flat, and in my experience, doesn't tangle as much as other headphones (results will vary). The headphones have a little weight to them, and can feel uncomfortable if you have them playing heavy bass tracks i your ears for long periods of time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible sound at this price..although.. I was kinda skeptical about these earphones , but reading the reviews, i had to get one. Wow, these things sound nice! I've had and tried Beats and BOSE (twice) and these earphones sound better and louder than those. As long as you have then nicely fit in your ears ,you hear amazing bass that not even the $120 BOSE could deliver. Now, it does have some minor downside to it. No volume control, just pause and skip tracks. Ear phones ten to pop out if you do any running or jogging. Cable doesn't seam very rugged, I've only had them for a week now. Have to see how long they last. And lastly, the jack is in L shape which i personally don't like. Other than that, you'll get your moneys worth in these $30 earphones. Get them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big Drivers, Great Bass I use these during my bus commutes, fast walking, and sometimes at my desk. The choice of ear rubber sizes is good (I use the x-smells). Sometimes I'll use one bud in my ear while bicycling, but it doesn't stay in ear very well when I move my head around and change position in the saddle. That being said, I think they are not the best for sports and exercise. But if you like excellent bass production and you want a control for skipping, pausing or repeating a song, they're great. The wires don't get as badly tangled as my previous set o' buds. I got the blue ones so they don't get lost in the bottom of my bag. I'm too lazy to put them back in their pouch

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasently surprised I purchased these earbuds originally because I wanted a pair under $ I could use at work and I needed to cash in some purchase points from my Visa card (the earbuds the bank was selling were not that great). I went online an researched the one's with good overall ratings and solid bass. I had my expectations met and exceeded with these buds. They more then fit the bill and feel awesome in my ears. They are a bit heavier then most earbuds, but the weight is not distracting and they stay in my ears when I am doing other motions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from complete shock.. one of the best I bought these for music.. cheap and expendable. But man am I shocked. Now I use these for all my headset needs. Form monitoring video recording to postproduction. awesome bass great noise cancelation. and for that price.. this is one of the best headsets I have ever owned..

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally happy, some caveats My main goal was to find an earbud that was lightweight, didn't bother my (sensitive) ears, and didn't pull out as much as previous products I've tried. I have an oddly shaped ear, and I don't find over-the-ear or top-wire units comfortable, so I wanted the best normal earbud set I could get. On that front, these are great - they're lightweight, their angle helps them sit more naturally in the ear, and they fit well enough that they don't seem to have as much tendency to fall out. I knock a star off because their rubberized cable seems to catch on clothing, zippers, etc. I never understand why companies continue to make sticky wires - it seems like the opposite of what you'd want to do. But, sadly, there was another drawback - a muddy mid-range. The bass and treble seem fine but certain songs take a definite audio quality hit. I wasn't expecting studio monitors, but I did expect more from Sony. If what you want is bass, these totally deliver - when they say Extra Bass they mean it. They just don't have much else. I'm not totally UNHAPPY with them - I tend to use earbuds in places where you can't always tell audio quality anyway (outside running, in the subway, etc.) so I'm keeping them because the other qualities above were way more important to me. But... definitely try before you buy if you can. Audio quality is very subjective.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value - Great Sound I was a little apprehensive before buying these. I thought that these might have too much bass for the music I listen to. I like Rock ( Eminem/Aerosmith,U2, Bruce Springsteen, Guns and Roses), Some pop (Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Adele, Duffy, Jessie J)and New Age. They all sound good. Bass is really good. I'm impressed. I tried the cheaper The House of Marley Smile Jamaica. It had decent bass but middle and high's were very muddy. These are clean and clear from high to low. It has pretty good sound isolation as long as you use the proper size gel piece. I initially used a smaller one and these sounded terrible and I hear a lot of outside noise. I couldn't hear anything on the NYC subways. I changed the gel piece and subway riding is so quiet with just music.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Truly Big Bass I bought these because my Ultimate Ears SuperFi3 buds finally broke and they didn't break the bank. I was interested by the bass boost and range of the driver so I got them to listen to heavy bass.Turns out it's actually got great bass and with the low range you actually feel it. Listening to Dubstep is great! Rock is pretty good as well. These are definitely best if you want some ear buds for bass driven music.They are also very comfy and the built in phone mic is nice since I listen off my phone.
