The Sony MDR-XB950B1 is a very well-built pair of headphones and is, in fact, one of the better ones I’ve seen in the under-$200 price bracket.

bass lovers looking for noise cancelling wireless headphones, look no further.

If you really love bass, you’ll love the Sony MDR-XB950N1. The adjustable bass means you can dial in the headphone’s bass response just the way you like. We would have liked to see a multi-band EQ but Sony kept it simple with just a bass slider.
