Music plays a massive role in my creative process therefore when the good guys at Sony asked me to feedback on a couple of their fresh new Extra Bass collection, I was more than happy to oblige.
SONY headband headphones mdr-xb650bt
- Quality build.
- Nice Lightweight design and although I normally go for all black everything, this fresh blue makes a nice change.
- Sound quality is tight with great bass clarity, and so it certainly lives up to its name Extra Bass.
- 30hr Battery life.
- Intuitive controls on the right headphone. (makes you fell like a DJ ;)
- I feel they are little too large for my head. (perhaps I'm just a ear bud kinda guy)
- Not so smooth connecting to my Spotify as I had to restart and reconnect everytime in order to get it going.

SONY wireless speakers srs-xb3
- Quality build,
- Nice solid design.
- It was super simple to connect via bluetooth to both my mobiles (android and iPhone) as well as my macbook pro.
- Sound quality is superb.
- Water resistant.
- 24hr Battery life.
I've only got one issue and that's with the recharging connections. Its got a DC in and a USB, meaning I'd have to carry a different cable to recharge this guy, which isn't ideal when I try to travel as light as possible.
Overall I'm impressed with both products, they are both aesthetically pleasing and very well put together and so will look good anywhere in my flat. Although they are designed for use whilst out and about, I'll be putting them to good use when I'm sitting at my desk editing photos. For me, It's simply a great portable audio solution for around the home.
