Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Comfortable, attractive design. Can be used in passive, wired mode
The Sony MDR-XB950B1 is a very well-built pair of headphones and is, in fact, one of the better ones I’ve seen in the under-$200 price bracket.

What reviewers didn't like

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.
Ridiculously thunderous bass when Bass Effect is on
