RaghavaZ, 07 Jan 2017I m not insisting. It's my experience with Beats Mixr and Solo 2. For me Beats are not that go... moreBeats Mixr is better than the best Sony XB ever made: XB 1000 !!! In fact you are a liar with any experience with Beats.
I may not have an XB headphone or speaker from Sony, but the Sony MDR-V55 I bought for $50 last year still sound great with heavy bass since it's a kind of DJ Headphones. The only downside I had was the plastic build, but for the price, sound quality is superb.
[deleted post]I m not insisting. It's my experience with Beats Mixr and Solo 2. For me Beats are not that good as Major Audio Brands. If you like Beats, enjoy those and that doesn't mean everybody should accept your likeness as a fact. Mixr may be somewhat better than one or two Sony XBs but not all.
[deleted post]I never felt Beats are good when compared to true blue audio brands(Sony, Sennheiser, AT, etc.,.). And the model Mixr is also bass oriented ones just like every beats out there and are pretty average ones.
I currently use Sony XB950APs, so basically the version before these, and they're still awesome today. Gonna wait for the price tag to drop, then I may upgrade to these.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017It's obvious you never owned a single one buy first and then speak kidI own a cheap Sony headphones but quality is superb and don't call people kids.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017It's obvious you never owned a single one buy first and then speak kidI owned it for 3 years now and it's still great with deep bass. WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?
Can't resist the minimalist beauty of the Sony hardware. Xperias also look great but AMOLED looks much better and once lauded Sony battery life is now faded.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017No thanks with Sony quality and sound!! Hehe No thanks, I stick with Sony speakers!! Haha
sssssssss, 05 Jan 2017220 euro for headphones with bloated bass and zero clarity ?? And you said Beats are overprice... morejunk? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
it is still better than a b brand.
220 euro for headphones with bloated bass and zero clarity ?? And you said Beats are overpriced ??? Beats Mixr at 200 euro are much better !!!
RaghavaZ, 05 Jan 2017Upto certain price range Sony's are definitely among the best ones. XB series from Sony are ba... moreZERO CLARITY !!! ALL XB SERIES ARE GARBAGE !!! I had xb 1000, 700, 500, 800, 900. No highs, no mids, bloated bass. 220 euro fo this junk ??? I spent the same amount of money on xb 1000, 4 years ago. Do not throw money on XB. Sony 1R are the best from Sony.
BTW, the price in Europe will be :
SRS-XB40 219 EUR (speaker diameter 61 mm)
SRS-XB30 159 EUR (speaker diameter 48 mm)
SRS-XB20 119 EUR (speaker diameter 42 mm)
SRS-XB10 59 EUR
Not cheap at all for the XB40 i don't think this will go againt the JBL Xtreme for example, which is now at 199 EUR, minus the LED effet and all (I had a GTK XB7 and it wasn't that much pleasant because no choice selection of color, here there is a possibility only on the XB40 which is nice) but better sound I think. Couldn't find the number of watts RMS ...﻿
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2017It's obvious you never owned a single one buy first and then speak kidUpto certain price range Sony's are definitely among the best ones. XB series from Sony are bass heavy but still maintain the clarity. As you go up the price ladder you do get better options from Sennheiser, AT and others but still Sony's have got the quality to match. I do own Sony's XB series headphone along with AT M50x and Sennheiser HD598 SE. Sonys are always considered among the best in audio and camera categories.
