Sony MDR-XB50BS review

 

Sony's new MDR-XB50BS Extra Bass Sports Wireless in-ear headphone is worth considering for a few reasons: Not only is it relatively inexpensive at around $60 online (£60 or AU$130), but just as importantly it fits well and sounds good, particularly if...

The Sony MDR-XB50BS is affordably priced, sweat-resistant, sounds decent and fits well (it's easy to get a tight seal). Battery life is good at 8.5 hours and the headphone has strong bass performance.

Not the greatest-looking wireless sports headphone; performed only OK as a headset; no protective case.

It's got some small downsides, but the reasonably priced Sony MDR-XB50BS is a step up in sound from a lot of inexpensive wireless sports headphones.

Sony MDR-XB50BS review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony wants these headphones to be your go-to pair if you're heading to the gym. The Bluetooth connection means no dragging cables, but will the chunky ear pieces stay put on your morning run and is the sound up to scratch? We put them to the test to...

Обзор спортивной Bluetooth-гарнитуры Sony MDR-XB50BS

 

Рынок всевозможных гаджетов для занятий спорта сейчас растет и всевозможные фитнес-трекеры выпускают уже все кому не лень. Bluetooth-гарнитуры — ниша более старая и игроков тут значительно больше, как A-брендов, так и китайского "ноунейма". Так что...

Очень удачная конструкция и надежная фиксация ; удобное управление ; влагозащита ; длительное время автономной работы

слабый микрофон ; вам нужна гарнитура с более ровным и детальным звуком

С точки зрения прямого назначения, Sony MDR-XB50BS получилась действительно очень удачной: она очень удобная, легкая и отлично фиксируется в ушах, наушники не выпадают ни при каких видах активной физической деятельности. Кнопки управления хорошо...

GGreat sound. Great look. But quiet mic.

 

The bass is great! They fit me so well and I usually have trouble with in ear headphones. This is great design. The look is fantastic. I love how it's just the ear pieces and no bulky neck piece. The microphone doesn't seem to hear me well when I talk...

The look. The sound. The bass. The price.

SONY MDR-XB50BS Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black

 

They come with different size ear pieces which allow for a comfortable fit, are a good size and look good. Sleek design.

There is a bit of a buzzing sound when they connect, before music is playing. However, the sound quality is good for the price once you play your music. You can't hear it.

SONY MDR-XB50BS Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Black

 

A good price, excellent build quality, no nonsense connection. Just a great buy.

A bit bulky and not great for wearing on the street as they don't look wonderful, but for sport or travelling, fantastic.
