Good But not best

I have been using Skullcandy, jbl, xb450 from Sony earlier, I wanted to test the waters between xb 550 and 450 so brought it just for comparison

So what is the difference? Many ask but few answer.

My answers is the bass on the 450 is boomy and it spreads but it's also loud

While the 550 has less bass but it's precise and not much loud compared to xb450 you won't feel spreading of bass.

I used both with iPhone, laptop, lgv30 and Walkman nwz e474

All with bass mode in equilizer

So In my opinion go for 550 if you between purist and "clear bass head" or go for 450 if you want those vibrations and booooooooom effect

But both are good if not the best
Funny thing is the Skullcandy anti can easily keep up with these to but that's a different story!

One of the best under ₹3000 price range!

This was the first time I ordered from the Headphone Zone and I'm not disappointed. The headphones look exceptionally good for the price, I ordered the blue ones. It has a sleek metallic headband and matte finish over the ear cups which looks and feels awesome in my opinion. Coming over to the sound quality, they are bass heavy. The bass is very thumping and you can actually feel your ears vibrating at higher volume levels. The lows and mids are very crisp with decent highs. Noise reduction is actually good. I can't even hear my own voice once I start listening to the music. The build quality is also very good. It has flat cables which do not tangle. The ear pads are soft but I was not able to wear them for more than 1 hour due to the heat generated and the pain around ears. It definitely needs some time getting used to or it could be just me as I'm more of in-ear earphones type of guy! The mic and in-line remote are added conveniences and do a decent job for taking calls or skipping music. Overall, I think they are really good for the price and if you're hungry for that bass to blow your ears then you cannot go wrong with these. If you are not a bass head or rather prefer more of a flat sound signature then I would suggest to go for the Audio Technica ATH-M20x's instead. Thank you Headphone Zone for such a nice pair of headphones and quick delivery. \(^_^\)

Good Headphones recieved perfectly

please just check the price on amazon and then buy it from here because that is the only mistake I did since it was 300 bucks cheaper there. Otherwise no problems with the headphones, they work really good and the delivery was good (they do it by bludart which sometimes sucks, but it didn't happen for me).

Best under 3000 category.

These headphones are really nice. The design and the matt texture provide them a classy look. The cable is of good quality. These headphones give soft sound in which bass and treble is equally balanced. However, the bass is very good that doesn't mean treble will suppress. You will enjoy bass and treble equally. But, if you love bassy sound then you can use enhancer and you can feel woofy vibration at high volume. However, coming to the comfortability I found these are one step back because before these I had sennheiser px95, which were very comfortable but maybe because they were very light and this one is somewhat massy and feel big. But apart from this, there is nothing bad about these. You can easily go for these if you are music lover. You willn't get anything better under this price tag.

Best Headphones under 3000

This is the first time i am writing a review for any product. Before buying headphones from headphone zone i went to the croma store and tried a few in the price range under ₹3500. I must admit sony mdr 550 is a clear winner in highs lows and mid and yes how can i forget to mention the bass and the thump. Well, I personally like songs with high bass and yes these are the perfect headphones for it. Build quality is good, nice cushioning for your years and stylish steel headband with cushioning for your head as well. Overall a very satisfactory product from Sony. Coming on to price, you can buy it from headphone zone with your eyes closed. Croma was selling these for 3200, on amazon it was for 3000 and i got the best deal here for 2500. Thanks to headphone zone for timely delivery, good packing and amazing services. Would love to buy more products from headphone zone in future.

Be adaptive by Nature and you would love it.

Well it's entertaining to be sure. These are fantastic pair of headphones.
Comfort? Pretty darn good.
Quality materials? Very good for the price.
Sound? BASSY. I have tweaked the EQ and increased highs just a notch and brought down Lows a notch too. No distortion at 85% volume (Which is loud too).
Vocal? Right at your face, though little muddy but nothing out of place.

I can say that, Highs and Lows are pretty good when tweaked, and just a bit of a complaint for Mids.

Good one

The bass is good and it does a good amount of noise cancellation. The only problem I see is that it starts sweating in the ears and ears starts aching after 30 mins usage.
