amazon SONY EXTRABASS MDR-XB55AP reviews
In terms of design, those who have ever owned XB50Ap will see the shape from the housing to the wires or jacks according to the previous XB50, except the color part is more delicate and youthful.
The outside of the Sony Xb55Ap headphones has a translucent Sony logo but stands out at the earpiece’s cylindrical part, the translucent plastic housing covers the headphone driver connected to the audio pipe that is tilted to one side, with a needle-shaped finnter plate mesh type, the headset body has a small hole for deep bass and very real hand.
Compared to the headphones with specialized bass range, the design of Sony 55Ap or 50Ap is more optimal
The top of the housing has a plastic cover that can be easily removed when the ear has technical problems.
The headset cable is made of rubber, flat, anti-slip, fracture. The embossed tablature is made in Thailand.
The jack L of the Sony extrabass XB55 headphones resists the jack
Keys, controls with microphone
Control keys have the effect of Stop / Play music, both can move forward when pressing quickly 2 times and back up when pressing quickly 3 times.
The Sony XB55Ap has a built-in mic control key compatible on many mobile devices, the front consists of the play / pause buttons and back, forward. At the same time using the Google Now and Siri functions easily.
Sony XB-55Ap headset sound quality review
To analyze the sound quality of Sony XB50AP headphones objectively, I use 2 common sources: Fiio Player X1 gen 2 and Iphone. I use familiar test tracks like Hotel califfonia: PCM 1411kps, Despacito- J.FLA: flac 754 kps, Faded – Alan Walker mp3 320kps.
The bass range of the Sony 55Ap headset is a little different from the XB50AP, still has a strong bass tone and a wide bass field, but the XB55Ap has a definitive bass force, a very compact and moderate sub bass strip that makes EDMs like Faded long listening no tired. The instrumental music such as Hotelcalifonia has a bass opening that is open, not sticky or encroaching on other sound bands. If you are a Basshead or passionate about lively sounds, vibrant Dance, Pop, EDM music, you will see a significant improvement even the first time you listen.
The midrange strip on XB55Ap is not colorful, it sounds very rustic and fresh, the detail of the singer’s voice and the string instruments when pulling the middle strip is smooth. The high-mid has just arrived, but the low-mid is more dominant, the male voice in Hotel California sounds very poignant.
Treble strip of Sony Xb55Ap right after opening has a relatively harsh glare, but after 48 hours of running the treble has better control, up creaking and creating vibrancy for the bass and mid bands. When listening to EDM versions, the treble DJ stands out with a sufficiently clear volume,
Summary of sound quality: The tone is slightly backward, the midrange band benefits, the level of detail is quite good
– Bass: compact, wide sound field, airy,
– Mid: rustic, fresh
It can be said that the Sony XB55Ap headset has a very good finish compared to its predecessor XB50Ap and also handles the bad parts based on the current housing and driver. The current price of XB55Ap is equivalent to the XB50Ap line which is a plus point of the company and deserves to be Sony’s strategic inear headphones in 2017 in the low-end segment.
+ Good processing, high level of finishing.
+ Bounce button, sure cord simple design easy to use
+ Fresh colors, beautiful packaging
– Vol keys are not integrated, classic design is not innovative.
