    Sony MDRXB950AP reviews

    MDR-XB950AP Extra Bass Headphones (Gray) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I actually only tried it at the store I was visiting the store to buy a voice recorder. Then as usual I tried the headphones before leaving. Then I stumbled on this gorgeous silver/gray headphones. I tried it with my own Spotify songs. I was surprised with the sound. It didn't come as mumbling or too heavy or broken. It was perfect. There were others that sounded good too but they looked like a big antenna or horns when I wore it, but this one looked perfect when I checked on the small mirror. And the ear cushions felt great, not too pushy or forced. I def recommend this as I am starting to save up to buy this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who needs a freq. response from 3-28.000? I just realized I do. With these headphones I perceive some subliminal sounds I never heard before on some of my music files, quite impressive. Even though we can't hear that frequency response fully, I believe it helps for a better over-all sound. The sound is really good, and there is no unwanted noise, just a clear and rich sound. I also think the little discrete remote on the chord for pausing and playing is quite useful. Wish the cable were a little longer though. I use my headphones on a daily basis, they were better than I expected them to be for this price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive and good value Really nice sound and design. These are not the most luxurious in build quality but are a good weight and the sound is impressive. I like them over a far more expensive set I own as the bass is much more prevailant without destroying the highs. They are a good weight as well so useful for longer sessions. Only thing I do not like is the plastic bits make them a bit cheap looking/feeling and the cable is quite short (perfect if your using them for a mobile device which I'm not).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this for a family member. Headphones, while not as dangerous as earbuds, are hazardous to ones hearing if not used properly. The noise reduction used on these headphones make it possible to keep the volume in a safe range and still hear all of the details that I must hear while editing video. As an additional benefit these are great when listening to movies or music on an aircraft. The price is quite reasonable when you consider these advantages.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good value not the best sound Pro - * comfortable * good price * great bass Cons * the headphones vibrates when playing high sound * bulky * no case Overall, ok buy. Spend extra $ and get the headphones you really like. If you are on a budget, you might want to buy these sony headphones.
