Sony MDR-XB50AP review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony's MDR-XB50AP in-ear headphones are claimed to give club-like sound thanks to their X-Bass feature. But will other commuters be able to hear the beat as you head off to work? We sent these Sony headphones to our test lab to find out whether they...

Sony MDR-XB50AP Extra Bass HEADPHONES

 

The Sony MDR-XB50AP Extra Bass are average mixed usage in-ears with an emphasis on bass. They're portable, stable and block an above-average amount of noise which makes them a decent choice for commuting. Unfortunately, they aren't the most...

Above-average build quality. ; Minimal leakage.

Mediocre-at-best control scheme. ; Bass-heavy sound, not for everyone.

Good quality and price

 

How easy it is to install it! My Iphone detected it immediately. The sound is really good, I can run with it, going to the gym, it stays still and it was hard for me to find some that can stay in place when you're running or cycling. I recommend it !

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Sound great but uncomfortable.

 

If only using 1 earphone they always fall to opposite side and pull back on side in ear, seriously annoying, a clip of some kind to attatch to collar of clothing would work great, this really aggravates me and feels less worth it's price on this note.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

It is a great product!

 

Very good sound quality with reasonable price! The earphone has a clear instruction on how to recharge and connect. Reasonable battery life. The only thing I would suggest improvement is to make it a lighter weight.
