SONY XBA-4 Balanced Armature Headphones-4 Drivers
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Earphones. Headphone amp suggested 01/25/2013

This review is from: SONY XBA-4 Balanced Armature Headphones-4 Drivers

Pros: Great separation of bass, mids and treble, probably due to the 4 way speaker setup in a earphone which i had never seen before.Great clarity. decent build quality. great noise isolation

Cons: high price. Requires a high quality amplifier with a higher output than what mp3 players and portable devices have built in. Non detachable cord.

Other Thoughts: I got these headphones a few months ago. I am not new to the headphone or earphone market, i have owned headphones from the 10 dollar range all the way up to 1200 dollars. the last earphones i owned were ones made by Etymotic research, model ER-4 which i liked alot but the sound degraded over a few months and then i had a problem with the cord. when i got the sony XBA-4 the first thing i noticed was that none of my portable devices sounded good, they sounded like they were straining to run them so i purchased a portable amplifier made by a company called FiiO the model is E07K. when this amp arrived i connected it to my computers usb port where it can be an external soundcard and when i checked out my music collection i was AMAZED!!! I could hear each instrument perfectly, the treble, mids and bass were all able to play without affecting one another. I also could hear HUGE differences between different quality mp3s and audio sources. So the most important things to consider when choosing these are what quality recordings are you listening to and having a high quality amp with enough power to drive all 4 speakers.

Lenovo IdeaPad U400 (09932JU) Notebook Intel Core i5 2450M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6470M 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Core i5 processor, 6gb ddr3 ram, very sleek design. 2 graphics cards, the standard intel 3000 intel and also a Radeon 6470M giving the best of both worlds (power conservation and graphics power) Having a usb 3.0 port and a HDMI output are both a plus. Overall this unit has a very smooth feel that reminds me of a macbook.

Cons: the stylish all in one body design makes upgrading any part of the unit difficult. There is no option to get a SSD built in so if you want one in this unit you must be willing to do the upgrade yourself. The entire bottom which is the cover for all the components is only secured by 2 screws and a few plastic tabs. I upgraded the ram to 8gb and the hard drive to a 120gb ssd and in doing so i broke one of the plastic tabs. If it wasnt for this design and the lack of BluRay capabilities i would give it 5 stars

Other Thoughts: as with any purchase reading reviews on similar models is a good way to help with the decision process. Write down what features you are looking for and the price range you are planning on spending.

Intel X25-E 64GB 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -SLC technology with very fast read and write times

-low power consumption

-rugged, good for on-the-go computing

Cons: -expensive

-not a whole lot of space for the cost (compared to MLC type SSD's)

Other Thoughts: i own 4 SSD units, 1 is intel, 2 are OCZ and the last is a SaberTooth. 3 out of 4 are SLC type memory which i find to be quite superior to MLC if very fast read/write are neccesary.

If I were to buy another SSD today and price didnt matter i would choose either Intel or OCZ.
