Designed to deliver the deepest bass possible, the Sony MDR-XB950AP headphones get every ounce of music from your smartphone.

Designed for the deepest bass

With an awesome frequency response of 3 - 28,000Hz, the Sony MDR-XB950ap's are designed for today's dynamic music. With Advanced Direct Vibe Structure, the Sony isolates your music's bass for maximum impact. For the deepest bass possible, Beat Response Control uses air vents to maximise the low frequency output. Bass simply doesn't get deeper than this!

Sound precision
Using lightweight, 40mm Neodymium drive units, these headphones offer a tight, rhythmic response. Combined with the high sensitivity it means that these headphones will go loud - even with your smartphone or tablet.

Snug comfort
Featuring oval earpads to surround your ears, deep isolation cushions and a closed back design, the MDR-XB950ap headphones keep the outside world out and your music in. For even greater comfort, the tough metal headband is softly cushioned.

Made for music on the move
The rigid aluminium end caps don't just look cool, they're also tough and lightweight. For simple storage when you're at your destination, the earcups swivel flat and the headband slides together.

Take calls on your smartphone
With its in-line remote and built-in mic, these Sony headphones are the perfect partner for your smartphone. Compatible with both Android and iPhones, you can switch between listening to music and taking calls at the touch of a button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellect Sound, amazing bass I bought these to use with my HTC mobile to replace the free headset that comes with the phone, I looked at these, the AKG Y50 and the Pioneer SE-MS5T and after a small demo by the very helpful salesman in my local store I went for these. they fit superbly, they are much better built than the AKG's (the AKG's felt a bit plastic and light weight), they fit over the ear so they cut out lots of background noise and finally the sound quality. The AKG's sounded excellent as you would expect for AKG but these have all the mid's & treble of the AKG but with much more Bass (due to the bass port). Now I have had them for a while I can honestly say that the fit is excellent with plenty of comfort and the sound quality continues to impress on a daily basis. The build quality is also starting to stand out as despite regular use they still look and feel brand new. All I can say is if you like sound & Build quality then these are a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Bought after reading good reviews online. So far so good; hope they'll make my 5+hours on a train tomorrow less painful! Note the last few pics on the website ATOW appear to be from a slightly different model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is what I was looking for If you enjoy edm...house music or.deep rich bass..this is the headphone which you must go for. I used to be Sennheiser fan for the last 10 years...but always use to run into issues with the wires either too long or they break and then becomes a rubbish sitting in a corner and gatheringredients dust. This headphone was an eye open opener in the sense that you can get great music at affordable price..absolutely love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Durable Bass I had the previous Sony MDRXB600's for over 2 years and was impressed with their comfort and durability. The bass was great on those, although it was a little overpowering compared with the top end - at times making the sound a bit muddy. When it came to a replacement I thought it well worth checking out the newer model! I tried on plenty of other headphones between £30-£100 and found these winners for bass and comfort. They aren't as muddy as the XB600's although the bass is the focus on these models which might not be for all. They also look great and come at a good price in the £30-£100 range. As a glasses wearer I do take comfort seriously, and these are seriously good. I have high expectations of their build quality from past experience with these models. A final note would be that they are value for money. Big time. And unlike other headphones they barely leak, meaning I can wear them in the office without annoying my co-workers. Highly recommended.
