Sony X Headphones (MDR-X10)

 

The Simon Cowell-endorsed Sony X Headphones are a flashy, powerful, bass-lover's delight—but they're also overpriced.

Quality audio performance designed for modern pop mixes. Very secure fit with highly adjustable headband. Removable cable. Comes with two cables—one with iPhone controls.

Overpriced. Highly sculpted frequency response is not for audiophiles. Can become uncomfortable over long listening periods.

Outstanding..when EQed

 

At the current prices this is a STEAL!

Excellent sound and detail. They are on the warmer sound which I prefer next to ultra bright headphones ; The bass can get amazingly low and controlled ; Works awesome with a FiiO amp

Without EQ, at least with my phone, I wouldnt enjoy it as much
