Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones, Model MDRXB400BLUE

Rattle your cage with Sony XB-Series Over The Ear headphones. Combining a unique direct vibe structure, for a tight acoustic seal, with high sensitivity XB driver units, these headphones deliver powerful and dynamic bass response, while the compact, dual-folding design and ultra-comfortable earpads further ensure that these cans will go where you do.

  • Direct-Vibe Structure
    A tightly sealed acoustic design allows for a high level of sound isolation which aides in the reproduction of powerful and extended bass sound

    Slim in stature with swivel-fold earpads, Sony MDR-XB400 headphones are lightweight when worn, yet easily stow away in a backpack or book bag when on the go

The headphones are really good. They are very light and comfortable, I can use it for hours without any problem at all. The design is ok and looks great. The materials are very good when you touch, and the construction is over the average. The mids and the highs are ok, but, the headphones really shines is when you hear the deep and clear bass in your music. I really recommend it. Really good headphones for a really good price.

This specific pair of headphones sounded a bit less what I was expecting for it's price range. The sound it produces is muffled; The lows overwhelms the mids too much and the highs, I can say, could have been a little bit better. The sound would have been ok if the manufacturer wasn't Sony. I know for a fact that Sony is well-known for having A-class quality products, but recently, it seems like they have paid more attention to the design rather than the real purpose of the headphones, music. Overall, in terms of design, it is surely a 5-star champion. But in terms of sound, it's a 2.7-star out of 5. For $99, I would not recommend this product. You shoud just save up a bit more and get the legendary ATH-M50s.

Sounds Great

By 

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

These headphones are just great sound extra bass and the best part other then the great sound is the noise cancelling. I am not sure if that's advertised but when you put them on you don't hear much, then turn on the music and your in heaven.

Great & Clean Sound

By 

from Miami, Fl

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

Pros: I just got them today and they sound very good. The ear pads are extremely comfortable and block all background noises from coming in allowing the music to sound more precise and clean. Cons: The volume control only works with apple devices.

Really Impressed

By 

from Alamosa, CO

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

I was thinking to Buy Bose Headphones. Glad that I was able to find something in reasonable price range. This Headphones are really good they fit good on head and does not slip off your head. It has really Excellent Bass and it also sound great. If you even listen to music for hours it will not irritate your ears. The only thing I did not like about this is that, whenever I try to take it off my head they fold right away and I feel like they will fall apart. Just wish they would have added a cheap Soft case for this Headphone just to protect from scratches while traveling. Over all Great Headphones, good sound and I am satisfy with the built quality. Hope you find this review helpful.

Amazing Sound Until They Fell Apart

By 

from Indiana

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

My Husband Received These Headphones As A Late Christmas Present Last Year & Never Took Them Off. He Fell In Love With Them. The Sound Was Great But The Started To Fall Apart...The Material On The Head Band Was Coming Off And Then Yesterday He Was Adjusting The Size To Put Them On And The Left Side Came Off...The Plastic Cracked And Broke Off....Very Disappointed Especially For The Price And Because He Has Only Had Them 6 Months And Cant Use Them Now.

sounds GREAT!

By 

from NH

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

a most UGLY color. Looks like something from the late 1970's. I had a pair of BROWN headphones back then. That was considered cool then. I look at these and it takes me back... But these sound so GOOD. I also have RCA, and Beats headphones. For the price, these are so worth it. They are very light and comfortable. The noise canceling is great. Go walking downtown and most noises do not get through nor bother me. If only they came in in Black or Silver or Red -- something other than BROWN. Oh well, I will sacrifice style for sound but I am not so sure young folks will be willing to be seen with these on their heads...

Great headphones

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

These are great! I use to have beats and these compare greatly! I purchased them for a huge discount and couldn't be happier. I have a larger head and when I first put them on they hurt slabs. But I put them around the biggest part of my thigh for 10 minutes and they now fit perfectly. They don't really get sweaty. Excuse the cruddy quality picture, iPads were not made for taking pictures.

Insanely Good

By 

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Sony XB-Series Blue Headphones:

Let's start off with one thing. When I say easily damaged, I mean it gets minor scuffs easily, such as when you scrape your finger nail on it. Easily wiped off. Prior to owning these, I had some Phillips headphones. Best ones I ever had. They were designed similar to these, except the middle was set in the headphones, not all level, like these. That caused INSANE pain in my ears. Due to the fact that these headphones are all flat on contact points with the ear, it takes a long time to start hurting minorly. They ain't lying about the bass. I used my old Phillips after getting these to test it, and boy, those sounded FLAT. These are stylish, have enough bass to enhance sound yet not distort it, and it's completely stylish. Get it now. That's my suggestion.
