Closed type Hi-Fi headphones with sound mode switch suitable for both Music and Movie entertainment

The Sony MDR-XD300 Stereo Headphones are a great pair of headphones that deliver high-quality sound at an affordable price. With 40 millimeter diameter, dome-type driver units and long-stroke diaphragms, your music will sound great. The MDR-XD300 driver units reproduce surprisingly-clear sounds at a wide frequency range (8-25,000 Hz).

These substantial headphones feature neodymium magnets for greater power handling and higher frequencies. Five times more powerful than standard earphone ferrite magnets of the same size, neodymium magnets mean that the Sony MDR-XD300 Stereo Headphones maximize energy, while keeping size to a minimum. With these advanced technological features, the MDR-XD300 provides great sound without placing too much strain on your pocketbook.

With the MDR-XD300, Sony has taken special care to please both the audiophile and cinema-geek. The MDR-XD300 features a sound mode switch (music or movie) to more adequately match the sound source. With a simple flip of a switch, you can focus the headphones frequency range to make your music come to life or bring you that much closer to your favorite film star. Of course, Sony has not scrimped on comfort. The Sony MDR-XD300 Stereo Headphones feature an ear-conscious design with soft earpads for long-time listening comfort.

WOW.....NEVER EXPECTED THAT, only bought these to last me over till I got a dcent set but these ARE certainly decent. The comfort is just great, getting even more comfy with each wear, sits great on the head and cushions the ears perfectly, like an old pair of slippers.
SOUND...just amazing, clear, defined so much more than you would expect from a set in this price range. Am so very pleased, go on and buy them, you won't regret it.

 Well worth the money!

Bought these the other day and here's what I have to say:

1. Affordable.
2. Light wieght.
3. Great Sound.
4. Lots of(but not overpowering) bass.
5. Comfortable to wear.
6. Look Snazzy.
7. Generously long 3.5m cable.
8. Two different sound settings depending on what your using them for. Movies or Music. I'm still not sure what the difference is, but the feature is there.
9. Has an easily removable 1/4 inch plug(e.g. Guitar Amp/effects pedal) that makes it a 3.5mm plug(e.g. MP3 Players).

As you can see I have nothing bad at all to say really!

Overall: 5 Stars! For this price Sony give you a very good deal! I got these for the lenghty cable to use on my guitar. For a while I used to sitting on the ground hunched over my effects pedal with my Sennheiser CX-300s(see review! :D) because of the short cable, but not anymore!

Hope this helps!

 Stop looking.

Not only do these headphones have amazing sound quality and all the other stuff you've read about them, they're incredibly strong.

My pair (which I've had for the best part of a year) have withstood falling several metres from my landing, being thrown at me by an angry girlfriend (which has broken a fair few of my other posessions), not to mention numerous hard tugs on the cable and several other incidents ofabuse, intentional or otherwise, and the sound quality is as good as theday I bought them, as is the integrity; no cracks or breaks and hardly any scuffing.

If you're looking for the best pair headphones in this price-range (and probably the ones above too), then STOP NOW; you're search has ended.

 GREAT Value for Money!

These headphones have to be the best I have ever come across, such awesome sound quality and Bass make the XD-200's one for the avid gamer or music lover.
I have had a pair for well over a year and they have survived through thick and thin.
I could never buy any other headphones.. Compared to these, other headphones of similar/higher price trail behind.

 "Excellent" Best Sound Ever For Headphones

I purchased these Headphones over a yesr ago now, and never once has anything what so ever failed to function correctly. The sound output is just as good now as it was when I first purghased them. The Quality is `PERFECT' but they are SONY!!
