I bought this model last year for my 8yr old son, good enough specs and reasonable price. I bought my oldest son a pr of Beats and they are just way overpriced for their specification and performance but he just had to have them. I perform a lot of video editing work at home and work and had been searching for a new pair for myself. I considered price ranges up to $200+ but they were just hard to justify on a combination of my budget and performance levels that would really make a difference. I bought myself a pair finally and am very happy. Bought my 3rd son a pair as well. Dynamic range is good, good bass but not overdone/muddy like some other more expensive ones.... needed realistic sound. Foam comfort is good but foam padding weakens easy although still comfortable. I wish they folded smaller but not a big deal. The best thing?... the flat cord! Ever turn your earbuds into a bird's nest?.. not with the MDR-XB400. Also like the 90 degree plug. This review is based on professional audio work for an adult down to an 8yo shooting basketball with them on.... after buying 3 I would definitely advise someone to seriously consider this model. If you have a deeper budget you can consider some higher models but you may not be gaining much vs other items you might want to buy.
