I did not expected such quality and power. They sound amazing. I found them more comfortable that regular size in-ear earphones. although they are designed to boost low frequencies, the quality of middles and highs is amazing too. I loved them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basshead1234 Best headphones I've ever owned
This has got to be the best headphones I've ever used or owned. The bass is outstanding! It's punchy and doesn't get muddy at high volume. I've tried my friends Beats Tours and Beats Solo HD. They're better than Tours by a mile. The bass is about the same in the Solo HD's, but the XB60EX are much, much more clearer in the mids & highs. Another thing I liked about the XB60's was the sound isolation. The earbuds form to your ear for a suction-cup like feel, which doesn't let outside noise get into your ear. I could have them at about 50% volume and I couldn't head people around me. The suction-cup type feel also helps keep leakage at a low point. It also helps with comfortability because they're not loose nor tight on the ear, they're inbetween loose and tight. But I've never had them fall out of my ear while working out which is a plus. Another thing I'd like to add is that the flat cable does not tangle at all. I could throw them in my pocket and when I'd take them out they'd be just fine. I also got these half off during Christmas break for $40, so I got a bargain on these. I wouldn't mind spending $80 on these at all though. It's definately worth the price! However, I'd like to mention that these particular headphones don't have a iPod/iPhone control. I would've liked to have one because I was used to pausing songs or turning the volume up/down without having to pull my iPod out. Some people prefer no remote, but It doesn't bother me at all though. The build and sound quality make up for it. Overall, I think these are great! Punchy bass, clear mids & highs, tangle free cord, sound isolation, it can't get much better than these. If you're thinking about buying these then go ahead and buy them. They're definately worth the price! Great job Sony, another 5 star product! I'm definately one happy customer.

These headphones are so awesome, I love them, I got them for christmas of
2012. They remind of some of sony's old classic headphones with the noodle cord. The old ones I have were 60 bucks and I asked for these for christmas. The older ones (I'm unsure of the model) have a more raw normal sound but these go just as great with any kind of music. I put them in my ears and all the background sound is gone. Perfect for anywhere anytime. I just love sony products, as long as you don't abuse their headphones and take care of them they don't give up, the sound quality is just so amazing, I wish they'd bring this model back, I think they did great considering all the positive reviews but that doesn't mean they sold em well so who knows why they are discounted, maybe they came out with a better model. I will always buy sony's headphones and products like their play stations, they just make things to last unlike most companies now days it seems. These headphones are worth the money. I have had friends ask me about them and I always recommend sony headphones. I'm gonna mark these not presale? I got them for christmas but I didn't buy them but I think my review is just as good :)

I have gone through a lot of earbuds in the past few years. I bought these, because I wanted more bass. I was surprised at how accurate they were, and detailed. You would have to spend at least twice the money to get a better set of Earbud headphones. I might buy another set to put away for later. I have built and modified speakers for over 30 years, so high praise from me is rare. This set deserves the high praise.

I decided to try these in-ear buds because I hate the way most of them sound. No matter how expensive they may be they still lack the bass, off course. These are great, though! They deliver a clear and balanced sound. I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SRT4 dont ever stop making the 13.5mm dome earbuds!
Had a pair of the older version that I lost. :-(. Got the tripple balanced. Luved the mids and highs but lacked the lows. Returned to the 13.5 mm dome. Not as good in the mids and highs but excellent lows. I like a little thump. Make sure they are on the jazz setting, which will not overpower the spkr. Thank you Sony and thank you Sara for my 2 yr anniversary gift!

These earbuds are truly AMAZING!! I've had them over 6 Months and they still sound like they did on the first day of Purchase. However when these earbuds do die out, I wil purchase them again or maybe the MDR-XB90EX.
