Product Details

Sony Red Extra Bass Bluetooth Over-Ear Wireless Headphones - MDR-XB950BT/R

Features:

  • Electro Bass Booster for club-like beats
    Feel your headphones throbbing with deep, club-like bass. The Electro Bass Booster is a powered bass enhancer that increases low-frequency sound using Digital Signal Processing. Driven by the rechargeable battery in the headphones, this technology provides more of a multi-sensory, deep bass experience than conventional bass boost enhancers. You can turn Electro Bass Booster on and off, depending on the music you are listening to
  • Tight bass with Beat Response Control
    Beat Response Control technology delivers tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximizes airflow within the low frequency range, optimizing the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms
  • Advanced Direct Vibe Structure for balanced bass
    The headphones' Advanced Direct Vibe Structure ensures you'll be able to enjoy balanced bass response — whatever your musical style. Each ear cup contains two flexible diaphragms, front and rear, that are tightly sealed to isolate your music's bass signatures for a smooth, resonating low-end response
  • High sensitivity for a loud, clear sound
    With a high sensitivity of 102 dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you'll hear a louder sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level
  • Dynamic Neodymium drivers deliver precise sound
    Lightweight 1.57 in dynamic Neodymium driver units enable the headphones to deliver a punchy, rhythmic response to even the most demanding track. Combined with a highly sensitive diaphragm, you'll be able to turn the headphones up louder and still enjoy clear, precise audio across the spectrum
  • Wide frequency response for a full range of sound
    The wideband frequency range—spanning 3 Hz to 28 kHz*—is designed for today's bass-heavy music. The 3 Hz low end of the frequency range picks up every powerful sub-bass note, while at the 28 kHz high-end, you'll be able to enjoy vocal melodies in outstanding clarity
    • * Passive operation only; 20 Hz to 20 kHz A2DP
  • One button control of smartphone calls
    Stay in touch while listening to music. The one-button control on your headphones lets you take hands-free calls whenever they come through on your Android smartphone or iPhone. You can also skip music tracks with a flick of your finger, and switch easily between songs and calls with no need to remove your headphones
  • Easy wireless streaming with Bluetooth®
    Based on radio waves, Bluetooth® technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won't be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you're free to stream all of your favorite music from your smartphone or tablet to your headphones
  • One-touch listening to play instant music
    NFC (Near Field Communication) technology removes the need for wired connections and complex setup sequences. Simply touch your NFC-enabled smartphone or other device* to the on-body N-mark and start your music. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually in Bluetooth® settings
  • Listen with the supplied audio cable
    Feel like listening to your music without Bluetooth? Just connect the supplied audio cable to your headphones and plug into your favorite music player for high-quality sound. The cable is 3.94 feet long and designed for durable everyday use
  • Pressure-relieving earpads seal in sound
    The oval earpad design with pressure-relieving cushions has been engineered to match the shape of your ears, ensuring a secure fit with minimal sound leakage. Ultra thick earpads with seamless 3D sewing seal in sound, reflecting acoustics back towards your ears. As a result, you'll hear more of your music with less outside interference and maximum bass signatures
  • Swivel folding design makes travel easy
    The perfect pairing for whose who live life on the go. The sliding metal headband and swivel folding design makes it easy to store your headphones when not in use or while traveling. The earcups swivel flat to allow easy packing in a suitcase or for slipping into a bag

I really like these headphones. I am coming from a pair of monster turbine ear buds and the improvement in bass and sound is remarkable as you would expect going from buds (even high quality) to high end over ears. The feel of the set on your head is light and comfortable, while i haven't tried to much activity other than household chores I find it unrealistic to think that these are going to stay on during exercise or anything but every head is different. Sound quality wise, the bass is superb without much distortion. I feel that the other ranges are clear and well represented also. It should be noted also that there is a bass button which can be turned on or off depending on your activity. I love the NFC bluetooth connection which makes connecting to your phone a cinch every time. The onboard buttons are also easy to navigate due to tactile dots put on certain ones so you can tell which button you are on, this saves you digging for your phone or device to change song, pause or answer a call. The fold flat design is nice for packing but they do not fold any more compactly than shown in the picture. The materials feel like quality and the design is clean and crisp and not so loud as other brands are often. I was pointed to Sony headphones in general do to their long positive history of high end headphones and good reviews of models that came before this one. I also was deterred from beats because i have found that, in my opinion, while they do have good sound much of their price is spent on marketing and being a fashion icon rather than sound quality and their actual product. These are at a lower price point also compared to most models so that is also attractive. I was dissapointed because these come with absolutely no case, no bag or anything which is pretty irregular for high end headphones. Also you may be interested to know that the supplied charging cord is USB only and is only about 16 inches long so their probably won't be any listening while charging unless you like your head on the desk, but you can use the included audio cable for passive listening.

The headset produces great sound and blocks out most of the background noise. They have a nice fit, but they are very large and look like half a soup can on your ears. If you don't care about style, this is a good product. I am hesitant to wear them in public due the bulky size.

Comments about Sony Black Over-Ear Extra Bass Smartphone Headphones:

My first over the ear headphones and I am greatly impressed by not only the sound quality and the build but also the price. I was researching the best value headphones and I had compared other brand names headphones namely Bose and Beats but they were all pricey compared to this Sony headphones. I also got a great deal from ABT and here I have been using this for over a month.

I watched a few HD movie trailers and the sound quality felt like I was in a movie theater. The bass boost option will enhance low frequency sounds. Listening to music is amazing and crsip clear sound.

I would buy this product for my family and friends .

    Comments about Sony Black Over-Ear Extra Bass Smartphone Headphones:

    Love the sound quality. Easy to set up and use. Very disappointed you must charge with a computer. I use these with my iPad and iPhone. We are traveling and did not bring a laptop. They are a worthless piece of equipment to me right now. Completely ridiculous, and beyond irritating.

    Sound Incredible, especially with a real equalizer

    By 

    from Vancouver, BC, Canada

    Comments about Sony Black Over-Ear Extra Bass Smartphone Headphones:

    I am totally satisfied with the level of utility they have provided me in the past 10 months. I normally use these with my Windows PCs and tablets, and I use a third party equalizer: equalizer apo with peace extension to make these sound even better by tweaking them according to my taste. I strongly recommend installing a third party equalizer that works with BT audio output, since the difference in audio quality would be day and night with proper calibration. The built-in equalizers in phones does nothing compared to an eq such as equalizer apo. Also, I don't use the in-built bass boost feature, btw. The only downside is that these don't come with a carrying case, but hey, who cares: Carrying case is only in good-to-have category when these headphones are in must-have category. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for an Incredible sounding pair of BT Headphones.
