Sony MDR-XB 910
If you thought Beats by Dre headphones were the last word in bass, then think again. The MDR XB 910s are custom build for pop and dance music, offering all the punch and soundstage of an Ibiza super club at 1am, minus the dry ice and freaks on stilts. Large, chunky and silver with a flat cable which doesn’t tangle, these are ideal for dubstep at home or on the go. We like the metallic styling and they look more fun than previous black on black Sony headphones. In fact, in pure sonic, terms, these offer as much audio excitement as you’re likely to be able to take - at high volume, it feels as though you’ve been transported to the middle of the dance floor at London’s speaker packed Fabric nightclub.
Key features: Big bass, modern design and decent, flat cable which doesn’t tangle.
Perfect for: All dance and pop music , from Skrillex to Carly Rae Jespen.
