Sony MDR-XB950B1

 

The wireless Sony MDR-XB950B1 headphones deliver as much bass thump as any pair we've tested, and because of that never sound quite balanced.

Good headphones

 

The headphones are good. Easy to pair with a phone, easy to understand and they are pretty durable. The headphone cups are made out of leather, but they don't hold much sweat which is good. The battery lasts for a long time. On med - high volume with...

Skull rattling bass

 

I love a good bass and this headphones keeps me happy all the time. Battery life is excellent. Looks preminum. Only negative I can think of is the size of its earcups.
