Sony MDR-XB950B1

 

The wireless Sony MDR-XB950B1 headphones deliver as much bass thump as any pair we've tested, and because of that never sound quite balanced.

Insanely powerful bass response. Comfortable, attractive design. Can be used in passive, wired mode.

Added bass can sound comically heavy.

From a sheer engineering perspective, I can appreciate the work that Sony put into making the headphones sound the way they way they do without distorting wildly. From a musical perspective, they offer an alternate twist on reality, padding each track...

Sony MDR-XB950B1: Mooie, stevige hoofdtelefoon met tikkie teveel bas

 

Solide, stevig sterk. De MDR-X950B1 van Sony is het allemaal. Echter, het is daarmee ook niet bepaald een lichtgewicht. Je voelt de hoofdtelefoon duidelijk op je hoofd zitten en soms drukt 'ie zelfs een beetje. Over het geluid kunnen we kort zijn: De...

Makkelijk te bedienen Mooi uiterlijk Draadloos Sluit goed aan

Geen noise cancelling Gemiddeld geluid, te veel bas Slechts 1 bluetooth apparaat tegelijkertijd
