Daily Life Using
You can use this Sony MDR XB-50-BS in any occasion not only exercise with affordable price. It’s good with Hip-Hop, RnB, and EDM musics it will make you enjoy with these kind of music when you do any activity.
But it might not good if you not a bass lover because this headphone will focus on ‘ Bass ‘ as priority. Because it’s XB series!! Your ears might get tired from listen music by use this headphone.
The appearance might make you feel it heavy and feel uncomfortable when you ear it but don’t judge from the look. When I wear this headphone, I’m really surprise how light it is compare with JBL T110BT that I owned. Actually I really feel it’s a little bit lighter than my JBL.
But I have some comments about this headphone. First, it doesn’t have any cable lock to keep hold the headphone cable. It bother me sometimes when I run and the cable moving to one side of my face.
The last thing, the material is plastic so I have to be careful to not drop or accidentally make it hit with something when I carry it.This headphone doesn’t come with the case or pouch, I recommend you should have headphone case to keep this headphone if you consider to buy this headphone.
Bass: Deep, clear, and Punchy bass it make the music more fun and excite but it kinda bother mid and treble sound a little bit.
Mid: Mid sound is kinda OK with the detail of instruments and vocal voice but sometime it will get bother by bass sound but still acceptable
Treb: Treble sound is decent not too sharp, good with detail of instrument but sometime it will get bother by bass sound but still acceptable
Stage: Sound stage is OK not too tight or make you feel uncomfortable the detail of instrument is quite good
