The Sony - MDR-XB950AP is the wired version of its predecessor Sony - MDR-XB950BT. It is an over-ear closed back headphone that comes with added bass emphasis to every beat and is credited to the Electronic Bass Boost circuitary.
It is designed for today's bass-heavy music, picking up every possible sub bass note. It covers  sounds across a wide frequency spectrum of 3Hz to 28kHz (not in case of passive operation).

The XB950AP is very comfortable and lightweight. It is not only great sounding but intelligently well-built. Its sleek design conforms to any head size, making long music sessions a treat.

The exterior traits of these over-ears are noteworthy and only goes on to lend these over-ears a luxurious look and feel. Although built of plastic, its joints and braces are extremely durable and sturdy. The headband is engineered from metal and retains all the solidity. 

The detachable cord has a convenient in-line remote and microphone, so you can take hands-free calls whenever they come through on your Android smartphone or iPhone. Swiveling ear pads allow for easy transportation.

  • Intense Bass Connectivity

    The Dynamic driver balances the rhythm and gives more depth and clarity in everything you listen to. The music makes you move your feet, voice that sways your heart and beat response control accurately reproduces deep rhythm & beats.

    Bass Response Control for Tight Bass

    Bass Response Control technology used in the driver delivers tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximises airflow within the low frequency range  which optimises the efficiency of the diaphragm, enabling more accurate bass reproduction.

    High Energy Neodymium Magnets

    The pairing of a Lightweight and dynamic 40mm Neodymium  driver unit and highly sensitive diaphragm delivers that punchy, rhythmic response. You can turn up the volume and still hear clear, distortion free sound.

Best headphone I own till date

I bought this headphone for the extra bass label, and it never disappointed. Bass is tight, clear and deep enough to make you feel its power. Mids are a little overwhelmed but I usually like to keep my mids down. High trebles are clear and sparkly. Thatnks to headphonezone for getting it delivered in 48 hrs.

Hey Sandip, thank you so much for this detailed and amazing review! I am sure this would help others :)

Sony - MDR-XB950AP

Emotion and weight

It takes you into the world of music with emotion, weight and space. It brings joy to any kind of music. It reminds me of what makes listening to music so enjoyable. I am a fan. There is a sense of a large hall like presentation. The mids are recessed with plenty of detail. Vocals and instruments sound delightfully weighty. I seem to like it. The highs are recessed but seems fairly extended to give that sparkle. The bass, needless to say, is insane. It can be overwhelming at higher volumes, so I have to reduce the volume. What the weighty bass does is to create a dark background for the vocals and string instruments to shine and gather attention. The bass isolates you from the environment, creates a large hall like feeling. The recessed mids mean that the vocals and string instruments appear to be coming from a delightful distance, it's not like everything is close to your ears. Instrument separation and imaging is also good and enjoyable. Excellent stereo imaging. All of this is probably due to the ear seal it achieves, it kinda allows the sound from the drivers to reach your ear without losing much, also allowing some space between the ears and the driver.

Warning: If you compare it side side with other headphones you will find it veiled and boomy. Do yourself a favor, give it some lone time. It is a headphone that takes some time getting used to. Sound is after all experienced in the head. Although, some tracks can really make is shine from the get go.

Ironically, I seem to think it works best for western classical music and vocals because of the fullness is brings to the sound of the instruments. I wasn't a fan of it listening to EDM because the bass was probably too much and boomy.

Easily driven by a phone. Compressed music also sounds lush and full. Passive noise isolation is decent, but the engaging sound does the remaining half.
