Sony XBA-H1

 

At this price, good design and high build quality aren't enough

Good-looking, robust design ; Good dynamic range

Ill-defined sound ; Lots of competition at this price

At this price, good design and high build quality aren’t enough. When it comes to sound quality, there are plenty of more refined rivals under the £100 mark.

Sony XBA-H1 review

 

In-ear headphones with style and bravado

Edgy design ; Flat cables ; Powerful sound performance

Premium price ; No inline controls

If you seek strong performance and slick design in a set of in-ear headphones, the Sony XBA-H1 will satisfy on multiple fronts. That is, if you can look past the price and lack of inline controls considering.

You just can’t get a better sound for the money than the Sony XBA-H1s. They’re comfortable, they’re affordable, and we are so glad we didn’t dismiss them. We know that if you give them a listen, you’ll be very happy you gave them a chance, too.
