A Review For The Metal Fan

Been using these earphones for a week now and, overall, I'm pretty damn satisfied. Whatever I say about this product, keep in mind I'm comparing these to others in the same price range.

The bass response is bloody impressive. The bass is rich and hollow. Bass guitars play out clearly and bass drums don't sound like someone beating on a table anymore. In fact, you actually feel the bass drums inside your throat.........yea, that's right.

From a rock listeners point of view, I would say these earphones lean towards bass a little too much but then you take into account its...CLARITY.

From a rock listeners point of view, I would say these earphones lean towards bass a little too much but then you take into account its...CLARITY.

Increase the trebs and decrease the mids and bass to taste and voila, you have the perfect metal broth, my friends. The clarity these babies give make 'em great for the average audiophile and I spent hours tweaking my equalizer and listening to the minute changes and making my perfect mix. And then these babies went to town pumping sweet strawberry musical cakes down my ears.

Okay, I'm exaggerating a bit here, but the clarity IS really good. So don't let the default high bass and mid scare you. Just tweak dat ekwalaizaar.

Build is ridiculously good and they're damn comfortable. Although, I would say that they look weird, but thats just me.

Bass - 10/10
Mids - 8.5/10
Trebs - 8/10

These headphones could've done with a little better sound balancing but it delivers on clarity so its not a real issue.

There might be better headphones out there for rock in this price range, but I ain't seen 'em.

Best under 2k? Hassssss to be.

Don't rate a product just bcoz u dont get it on time!

i just got my Sony Headphones and i will give a proper review only after the passing of burn-in time.
but it took me by surprise to see that some of the flipkart users who were unfortunate to get the product on time RATED it with 1 star. if u dont get a product call the Customer Care or the Grievance Cell. Don't b a dumb and rate it badly. u better know that flipkart doesnt respond to comments so writing anything about ur grievances simply go WASTED

remember : improper reviews (or rating without actually using the product) could repel other buyers

so think before you act

Sony XB30, hell yeah thats one epic pair of earbuds \m/

BASS BASS BASS!
This pair of awesomely awesome earbuds can definitely give Beats/SMS Audio a run for their money. Trust me guys, XB30 is ABNORMAL! :D I've tried skullcandies, sennheisers, etc etc.. XB30 is way way better. If you want the build quality, sound clarity, BASS obviously, similar to Beats/SMS audio [from 50cent fyi] in a cheap package below 2k, THIS IS IT! After all its from the epic XB line-up.

I initially thought the design would be a problem and it wont fit into my ears that well but boy was I wrong [thanks to the fitting assist] (Y)

The main part, sound quality..
IT IS INSANE! It definitely is a class apart pair of earbuds. As promised by Sony, the Bass is tremendous. Mids, lows are absolutely crisp.. It has got a 13.5mm driver unit! Only Sony can come up with such mindblowing headphones.

Am using it for my Xperia S, yeah am a Sony fanboy :D but the above said points are totally unbiased. You dont need to be confused.. just go for it!
Peace out mother-fathers! xD

PROS--
sony xb30ex are younger siblings of sony xb400(an on-ear xtra bass series product)
the shape of the cable is a big plus...quality not compromised and also looks cool....cable has neither sticky feel nor attracts dirt...plug is at right angle and is gold plated...the ends of the cable are well soldered with the jack on one end and with ear-piece on other end...
the design of the ear piece looks like custom molded earphones(which recording artists and musicians use) so it should generally fit everyone(there may be exceptions) and really goes deep inside the ears..
the isolation it provides from outer environment is praiseworthy...you will get to know its level of isolation in trains and buses(caution don't walk around with these in ur ears on road...u will not hear horns)
now coming to what its made for--BASS!!!!...yess this is strictly for bassheads...
the lows overpowers the highs....the mids are better than the highs....
the soundstage is wide enough....( to get an idea about highs,mids,lows do a bit of googling..these determine your heasdphones taste on ur ears)....
now there are balance armature earphones which have prices ranging from 5k-50k...balnce armature headphones have neutral sound means bass,clarity,treble are at same levels....so u don't require equalisers....but these sony are made for bass so u have to equalise your device( i tested it best on my hp envy m6 with beats audio..by changing frequencies)...also they do not distort at higher volumes but do distort at highest volumes(which is extreme case)...although made for bass lovers still the bass on some cases feel a little muddy and there is punch but not the punchier feel(means no super solid bass given it is XB series and if u are understanding my feelings).......having said that; these cans are made for rock,rap,r&b and sometime for metal lovers but not for classical,jazz,pop lovers....as bollywood is a mix of all genres..so this will satisfy most bolly listeners....

noww CONS--
accept it guys...
made for a particular taste not for all....i.e-only for bassheads...
the sound should have been clearer means brighter..means a bit more highs...
the box says EXTRA BASS...the cans have BASS if not EXTRA BASS!!!
sony should have provided triple flangs or dual flangs eartips...
the eartips are comfortable but foamtips would have been better choice considering its price....and the carry pouch is so low quality at least provide a zip case if waterproof is too much to ask for....

so in a nutshell this babies are made for BASS lovers.....girls will not love it much cause pop songs will go muddy...senior citizens request you to stay away...this belongs to a masculine group of cans....
also what i wrote above is from my research in last 2-3 days after burn-in period...i used audio-cds, FLAC and WAV files...coz mp3s don't have half the sound(many will not understand this...as mp3s kill many background music and frequencies so it is compressed audio..mp3s are avg. 5mb files whereas WAVs are 50mb files of same track of same time so there is some difference which many people and cheap earphones and devices will not notice).....
lastly this review is highly subjective and my ears are not defective...
buy only if u r satisfied with yourself and not me and my review...
so thanks a lot for reading this long piece of text..
THANKS>>PEACE>>...

Its all about Bass!!!

Before I begin my review, I am an Audiophile.
This one is my 10th IEM and till date the best In-Canal Fitting Earphones apart from Klipsch S4 (4500/-).

Till date in this segment I have used Skullcandy inkd' 2, Sennheiser CX 180(owned), Skullcandy Smokind Budz(owned), Sound Magic E10, Bose AE2, Klipsch S4(owned, best for that price), Creative EP 630(cheap and best,owned), Skullcandy 2XL(owned), Sony MDR EX 100LP, Sony MDR EX 220LP(owned) etc.

These earphones are for those who listen to Pop, Hip-Pop and Rock.
It produces very good amount of bass that doesn't mean it doesn't have treble.

These earphones are for those who listen to Pop, Hip-Pop and Rock.
It produces very good amount of bass that doesn't mean it doesn't have treble.
It has very good treble but the extra amount of bass makes the treble a bit lower side.
Between these two folks battling the mid's get lost; as of which these are not suited for music which combines bass and mid's.

When I mean Pop --> Its idle for songs like UK Top 40, Billboard etc. Not Hindi music (CX180 is preferred, it doesn't mean this is bad but CX180 is a bit better).
I believe who ever wants to buy these; will be buying it for their cellphones only.
But when I mean Pop and you listen to Florida songs you will end up just listening Bass making these kinda songs more annoying.

And to extract the best of this in ear, Poweramp player for android is the way with custom manual equalizer setting of perfect bass and treble; once you have configured it right, their is no such earphone for its price.

Build Quality: Is Second to None --> Its way lot better than my Klipsch S4, way too sturdy like Ambuja Cement :P

Comfort: Have tested it on 8 people and it has fitted way to perfect for all of them. And you can listen till long hours, once you remove these from you ears you would have your ears air tightened.

The best noice-cancellation earphones better than Klipsch S4 and CX180(popular for that and correct amount of treble and bass).

You also get a pouch along with standard ear plugs of different size.

They say its tangle free, but it is not completely tangle free but better.

Overall:

Pros:
1) Amazing Noise Cancellation
2) Build Quality
3) Made for Pop lovers (320kbps pop songs)
4) Comfort
5) Good for movies
6) Value for money

Cons:
1) Not suited for all kinds of music like vocal and local language songs (Sennheiser CX180 does better here)
2) Wire length is bit small compared to EX 220LP which is also a Sony make
3) Some times you feel the bass a bit annoying

P.S:
Tested on 5 Cellphones
1) Samsung Galaxy Nexus
2) LG Nexus 4
3) Samsung Galaxy S3
4) HTC One X
5) Sony Xperia Ray

Players: Poweramp & Google Music (Poweramp beats Google Music like anything)

Computers:
1) Lenovo T520 (Windows Media Player & iTunes)
2) Macbook Pro (iTunes)

I basically listen to Pop; that was my requirement and I have hit the jackpot.
