So let me clarify some misunderstanding.

Although these being "Extra Bass", there is a difference between "Excellent Bass" and "sloppy bass".

These have a 13.5mm drive that is engineered flawlessly.
Me being an audiophile, these have Crystal clear highs, amazing mids, and great bass. Well worth the 50$. Best earphones i have owned so far.

BUT. for those bass-heads out there, that are looking for 15 inch sub-woofer power in earphones, don't buy these.

These are "Extra bass" But its the realistic bass, you get everything in the music, plus a good thump, but not anything mind-blowing. THis is because Sony tends to not make "crap" drivers that choke out highs and mids and focus on bass. Very well made. i am happy.

Pros:
-Superior sound. MDR-XB41EX > Beats tours, purebeats, skullcandy(lol)
-Correct bass. ( not overwhelming ), and not fake. True bass.
-Flat cord ( no tangle ).
-Comes with a nice leather zipper case, and a clip.
-S , M , L , XL earbuds ( hybrid )
-S, M , L earbuds ( Noise cancelling ) <--- these work fine.
-Sturdy build, secure fit.
- $$$$$$$$ Bang for your BUCK.

Cons:
- Took about 5 hours of music playing before they were broken in fully, because the bass was a little weak at first, but once the virgin drivers flexed out, amazing.
-Tends to get a little uncomfortable after some hours. ( 4 )

Hope this helped :-)

Why? Because these are the best earbud-type headphones I've used to date.

The bass is strong, and the high and mid-ranges sound terrific. I had previously owned the Sony MDR-XB40EX (also an Extra Bass edition), which were very good.

These are even better, and worth the upgrade.

What really sets these apart are the included noise isolation earbuds, which do a superb job of sealing out exterior sound. I even attached the extra large sized earbuds and they did an even more impressive job keeping sound out.

I've owned Sony earbud headphones that are more expensive than these, but do not provide the bass that these do. Plus, the cords are flat - making tangles a thing of the past.

No need to think twice on these. I'd buy them again in an instant.

These Headphones, like the title says, are very good. They have very good noise isolation, many ear tip sizes, and have very good and punchy bass. The mids and highs are also very clear, vocals are easily heard. I listen to many types of music, and they are by far best for hip hop, rap, and music with heavy bass. There is no chord noise and they do not tangle at all. Also, they have the "stay in ear" technology, which actually works very well, so this naturally makes them good for sports and working out. I also own Bose in ear headphones (MIE2), Sennheiser CX-300 II, and V-Moda Remix. These are the best of the headphones in every way except comfort, (the Bose are slightly more comfortable). I have also used the Beats by Dre Tours and these have even better bass than those. These are by far the best headphones i have used.

Started DJing 1977 I have been thru many headphones; Sennheiser, Etymotic, Shure, AKG, Bose, Klipsch (beautiful sound but crappy wire), Westone, Beats (more hype than sound), Skullcandy (ok audio til they fall apart) and the list goes on, I'm audiophile at heart you know tube amps and vinyl so I have a love for music and good recording processing of tracks so I have to have good to excellent headphones that are comfortable to wear on long commutes. I have found comfort and excellent sound in the sony mdr-xb41ex... PROS: I hear everything in the tracks just enough highs, mids and punchy bass. CONS: I hear everything in the track meaning if somebody sneezed in the back of the recording booth I'll hear it, its like putting a mp3 under a acoustic microscope. I currently use Poweramp mp3 player full eq with SRS. I play everything from Weather Report, Q Tip, Coltrane, Miles, The Police, Beatles, Sting, Kraftwerk, Mozart, Notorious BIG, Alex Clare, 2 Pac, Blue Oyster Cult, The Brothers Johnson, Carly Simon, Pete Rock, Hall & Oates, Jay Z, Eric B and Rakim, Fleetwood Mac, House of Pain, J Dilla, James Brown, Kanye, Jill Scott, Kansas, Larry Heard, Latin Rascals, MJ, Public Enemy (overload alert), Sade, Stevie Wonder, Van Halen, Steely Dan..the headphones basically handle everything I listen to...Sony was my first pair of headphones in 1982 and will be my last pair of headphones 2013 and on. I can say I trust Sony sound engineers and designers

I'll second what most of the reviews here say, and add a specific note about the previous XB40EX vs these new XB41EX's.

I'm more of a bass head, and after listening to both pairs at the same time I prefer the older XB40EX. The highs and mids were toned down a bit in the older pair.

That being said, most people don't prefer the skewed, bass heavy spectrum that I like. These XB41EX's balance the low, mid, high, with an emphasis on the low, whereas the older pair strongly emphasized the low.

The sound is great both low and high frequencies. However, the cable is of poor quality. I bought mine in 2/2012 and 13 months later one side won't emit sound anymore. I've always used them in static mode, then cautiously stored in the case. So the only reason the cable would fail this soon is because of its quality. Too bad, I really liked the sound though.
