If you love music, chances are that a deep, characterful bass sound is important to your listening pleasure. It's the frequency where we literally feel the sound – the bass pulse that sets the heart racing.

That's why the MDR-XB headphone range is designed to deliver extra bass quality. The headphones are crafted to reproduce smooth, resonant low-end bass frequencies for whatever kind of tracks you want to enjoy.

I have the older generation Sony XB700 and XB1000 headphones, and they have BY FAR the best bass in the business. If you ever watch, let's say The Lord Of The Rings (Blue-ray) with these monsters, they'll blow you away, trust me! They're extremely comfortable too, like pillows hugging your ears. :cool:

I have 2 pairs of the older generation MDR-XB700's. Specs look slightly better (5g weight diff) on these but I fear that they will not be as comfortable since they are on ear instead of over the ear. First generation XB headphones look like two monster truck tires on your head especially the XB1000.
