Product Description

Sony MDR-XB600 Headphone

Tap into the pure power of premium bass with 40mm drivers engineered to deliver hard-hitting hooks the way the artist intended. Innovative direct-vibe structure creates a tightly sealed acoustic design making for an incredibly high level of sound isolation while also allowing for the reproduction of a more powerful extended bass sound. Newly-developed ear pads made of pressure-relieving urethane foam provide ultra-comfort and superb noise-isolation, while a dual-folding design makes it possible to reverse the ear pads for listening flexibility and hassle-free portability. Tangle-discouraging flat cord won't crimp your style with unsightly snarls.

Powerful Bass

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.

Extended Comfort

Dual folding design

Compact for portability yet affording listening flexibility, the reversible earpads let you enjoy music in many ways.

Tangle-free Cord

The durable, 1.2 m flat cord has a serrated finish that reduces tangles, so you can get caught up in your music, not your cord.

I have been searching for a good set of headphones under $100. My first try was with Sony MDRZX600. They sounded very warm and were great for high's and mids, but the lows were lacking and you needed to listen on full volume for them to sound good. I decided to return them and try the Sennheiser 439. The volume on the Sennheiser sounded much richer, but the volume was too low and that was a deal breaker for me.

I went to Bestbuy set on getting the Sony V55's. Luckily, they head both the MDRXB600 right next to the V55's. After spending about 15 minutes listening to both, I thought the low's on the XB600 sounded better and the headband had more padding.

I brought the XB600's home, plugged them into my Nexus 7 and I couldn't believe how great they sounded. TI listened to Bob Marley Legends album and these head phones sound incredible. The bass is tight and pronounced, but not muddy like the Dr. Drye's I'm very happy with these and I'm very glad my headphone hunt is over.

I have been given the opportunity to review the Sony MDR-XB600. XB stands for Extra Bass. I am usually not a fan of any extra bass headsets. I do prefer neutral sounding headphones and I tend to listen to the music as close to how the artist produced it. It means no equalization at all. I am also a headset freak; I own more than a dozen of them, ranging from in-ears to around the ears. I had to search for headphones to compare the Sony with. As I have no X-Bass, I had to narrow my comparative selection to a similar range of price and over the ears as this one. I selected the TDK ST700 and Creative Aurvana Live which are both sold for just under $100. I previously gave both these headphones a 4 star rating and I will certainly update both reviews with this comparative one. Since I am comparing a new headset to used ones, I also took the time to break-in the Sony for about 120 hours by letting it play constantly on my stereo at home with white and pink noises plus a selection of diverse music.
In order to compare effectively the three models, I will use my Iphone unamplified since they are meant for portable use. The tracks I will use are those that I always use when trying to compare headphones, because I love them first but also because I know how they should sound and more importantly because they provide a good sample of music genres and tonalities. The tracks will be the following:

- Ultrasone Sound test Siley Put short (Jazz, Binaural recording perfect for localization of sounds).
- Ultrasone sound test Wellen track 7 (sound of water waves perfect for the head stage definition).
- Frank Sinatra: How insensitive (Jazz, good also for localization of sounds).
- Robin Thicke: Lost Without you (Perfect for the voice testing).

PRODUCT FAIL! See picture. I bought two of these. Big mistake. They look great and sound pretty good, but the ear pads deteriorate after 40 hours or so of use. If you search for "MDR-XB600 ear pads" at you'll learn that this is a common problem and sony gives links to supposed replacement parts suppliers that do not have replacement ear pads. Not acceptable.

The presentation is great. Box comes out of side of a Square O shaped paper cover, smoothly. Box opens like a diamond ring box. Cords well wrapped and sealed inside a plastic bag with some clean looking warranty and info cards. The only word I can remember after spending like 1 minute on them is mid range. Now let me put that joke to the test.

Now, I have owned the xb700 for a year, while I enjoy trolling on the street with a pair of oversized trucker wheels on my head, they are just not that pleasant to wear unless you intend on using these for cold weather ear warmers. They are the most valuable bang for bucks in their old xb3 5 7 1k lineup, or at least for me as an eclecticist--balance is everything-price, sound.
The xb600 improved on the xb600's cord(easily dirty) and make it textured and hard this time(striped).
The Xb700 have way more spacy pads that are over ear, soooo "over ear" and my XXL ears do not touch anything at all(these ears get irritated in a V Moda lp). The sound is therefore coming in from your outer ear&into your canal, way more spacial than xb600, which, although on ear, has a much better seal in its structure, and does not involve much your outer ear for sound feeding. This makes the xb700 however, inferior to xb600 for portable sound. Both have sound holes, and the xb700 have three stripe holes on each outer casing, which makes the xb700 nearly open design and sounding, and if you listen to eminem in the library with xb700, you will get beaten eminem style.
The XB600 does not have nearly as much issue with sound leakage. It has only 2 tiny hole on each end.

As for the xb600, these things have very very very classy look. The brown synthetic leather is charming as hell, although the brown plastic is cheap looking.

The SONY MDRxb600 EXTRA BASS headphones really punch the bass. If you're one of those people who would crank up the bass settings, or buy 15 inch subwoofers in order to feel the beat, you are going to LOVE these headphones. Obviously in some situations, with certain music, this might make the bass throb too much. Other music, especially music mixed to be reproduced by vinyl, or with lots of congas, electric and acoustic bass guitars, piano bass notes, etc, you are going to hear that music as tho for the first time. The pluses FAR OUTWEIGH the minuses, of owning a pair of cans like this. So, let me explain more in depth.

I tested these with jazz fusion, reggae, psychedelia, and modern rock like Thievery Corperation, Porcupine Tree and Flaming Lips. I found that older music like the Rolling Stones late 60s albums, which hasnt been over limited, will sound VASTLY improved when played over the Sony headphones. After listening to Beggars Banquet, I took off the SONY headphones and listened to the Stones thru PHILIPS O'NEILL "The Bend" SHO4200bb headphones. WOW. The PHILIPS O'NEILL headphones made the music sound small, boxy, and weak, compaired to the Sony. I also compaired these Sony headphones to Philips CITYSCAPE headphones. The SONY still sounded far better than the Philips CITYSCAPE headphones. Jazz, reggae, and my 60s psychedelia, like Captain Beefheart, sounded VASTLY improved on the SONY headphones. The extra bass punch makes the music come alive. Its much closer to listening to music without headphones on, which is the goal, right?

I find it amazing, that these SONY headphones are 30-40% LOUDER.
