The quality of the headphones is amazing and it’s a solid pair of headphone’s, the only downfall about the headphones, is the pair that i received were broken, if you’re looking to buy a pair of these, i would recommend since the sound quality is amazing, exactly what i was looking for. But the wire has a fault, whenever i move it a little the left speaker will stop working. Over time it got worse also, i messaged the seller 8 days ago hoping to see what can be done about it. But they haven’t replied yet. Looking for, but just hope that it doesn’t arrive with a fault.

Up until recently, i had been using beyer dynamic 860s. Whilst the sound was terrific, the build quality for what was, when i bought them, a £200 headphone, appalling. When one channel died i had had enough. I didn’t expect the sennheisers to get close to the quality but have been pleasantly surprised. They don’t have the immediate attack but the details are all there, just a bit more subtle. The bass response is deep and clear and is one of the best i have heard on phones. On the main hi-fi with a dedicated headphone amplifier the sound is natural and musical, especially with vinyl. The surprising thing is that they are also good when listening to itunes on the mac. Admittedly i use an external amplifier but in spite of the music being compressed and the phones revealing the problems, somehow i still enjoy the music rather than always being aware of the compression as i was with the beyers.

Pure sound quality on a budget. . I’m using this with a sandisk sansa zip+ and what a combo. If you’re looking for a set of wrap arounds with clean, crisp sound then go for this set of ear warmers. Nice feature is where external sound is not completely drowned out – by design. This is the best set i have bought for this price and higher. And i always base my purchases on reviews. Aesthetics are to personal taste – i like it, some won’t. All in all i’d recommend to a friend to buy.

Sound quality and experience are hugely important to me, as someone who bough these to game with. I had done extensive research into headphones at this price point, and these were on the shortlist of contenders based on sound quality, bass, and experience. However, sound is perceived differently from person to person, so buying any headset without physically testing can always be a gamble. But let me say these headphones are amazing. I primarily use this to play games and listen to music with, and the sound is far superior to any gaming headset i’ve had in the past. Now, i don’t create music, or edit compositions, so i cant comment to intricacies, but the bass is great. The semi open style of earcup makes all sounds feel like youre in a mini cinema, or that you’re in the action yourself. I paired these headphones with a modmic v2, to give me an overall headset so i can talk in game, and it attaches nicely on the side.

As headphones go i have a few sets at home. The bose being the most expensive. Although, they don’t have that ‘uhmmph’ in mid base, like my bose do. However, these are cheaper ansd therefore i can’t fault them. The best music to test headphones with is opera and i played a few songs and the sound was uplifting. The noise reduction isn’t top-notch, but headphones like these i would generally use at home, rather than outdoors. Also, they are not the best looking headphones, for this proce, i guess they should look more appealing to the eye. But, can fault the sonics on offer, for this price bracket they are very good.

I love these they still work brilliantly and i bought these some time ago.
I am very happy with this product. Bought this when it costed 70£, i am very happy with this product, sound quality is amazing i never before had an open headphones buti am amazed how good they look and perform. I have big ears so smaller headphones do not go around them perfectly and after long use my ears start to hurt but with these headphones they go around perfectly and i can use them for long periods of time without worry, definitely would buy again.

Great sound as with all sennheiser headphones. Great sound as with all sennheiser headphones. If you’re looking for headphones for music then look no further. Personally these are great for any sound application, gaming, movies, music alike.

Which was replace my gaming headset and provide me with better audio when using the computer. The headphones have done exactly what i needed them to do, which was replace my gaming headset and provide me with better audio when using the computer. Though i expected some noise to escape the headphones during use due to the open back design, the sound that does escape is a tad louder than i expected it to be. This doesn’t cause me issues as i only use them at home, but if you were planning to use these out and about i would recommend finding another headset to avoid being a nuisance. Ear cups are comfortable, though i find the material from which they are made can cause my ears to get relatively hot during extended use. All in all, if you’re looking for some cheap, home use headphones with good sound quality, i would recommend this pair.

Excellent pair for a great price. . These are a very good well balanced pair of headphones, overall 9/10, bass is decent, mids are excellent and highs are very good,for a great price aswell.

I love this pair of headphones. I love this pair of headphones. Word of warning, if you’re using the mini-jack adapter in a laptop, be careful not to bump the cable. The adapter provides perfect leverage to tear the internals of the laptop apart quite easily. After some quick repairs i’ve got the sound card back in “working” condition, but am now looking at a 90 degree mini-jack adapter to pop on the end of this pair of headphones. Can be found here on amazon as well+ fits quite comfortably, even with giant large head. + nice and airy means they can stay on for hours and hours. + nice feel even for a plastic body. + jostling the cable produces no “brushing” sound. + sound quality is perfectly acceptable for cd music or gaming.

Good, but get a replacement cable. These headphones are not my first medium quality pair that i have bought, as i have had some audio technica headphones for a couple of years now,but these are so much better in sound quality. At first, i thought that they sounded a little muffled, but i have gotten used to the sound, and my old headphones sound tiny and squeaky by comparison. Theyre open backed, meaning that you get a much wider sound stage and a higher clarity of sound, but they let noise in and out as a result. If you plan to use these in an office environment, or on a train, then get something else. In a quiet and solitary environment they are awesome, and films or games feel far more immersive due to the comfort of these headphones. You feel like the sound is coming from the actual objects, rather than being replicated by headphones. I would recommend picking up a replacement cable for it, as the one in the box has a 6. 3mm jack with an adapter to 3.

Sony MDR-XB500 Extra Bass Headphones – : An honest review.

It claims extra bass and thats what you get. I prefered this xb500 more than the sucessor xb600. As decribed, these headphones present a bass weighty response. That remaining said, the sound good quality is great for the cost, and the significant cusions give quite great noise isolation, provided there …
