Excellent Earphones. Headphone amp suggested 01/25/2013
This review is from: SONY XBA-4 Balanced Armature Headphones-4 Drivers
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
high price. Requires a high quality amplifier with a higher output than what mp3 players and portable devices have built in. Non detachable cord.
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.
