Old pair gone. Would like another, on the cheap side, as these have gone waaay up from since I bought mine ($79 to $200). Thanks

Amazing head phones. It is stupid how the price shot up on them.

Yes, truly amazing headphones. Its a shame Sony no longer makes'em. First two are fake (cable brace should be grooved), and I emailed the third guy, as he is local. Thanks for the links, though!

Sorry. I have the xb500s. My brother has the xb700s.

I just used search tempest to find them. It searches craigslist and ebay.


Well. They make new models of them....but they are on ear and no longer around ear.

I know.

Any luck getting a pair off of Craigslist?
I bought the xb700s my brother has now. I got them for I think $70-100ish about 2-3 years ago.

Nah, still no word on that guy. I think 2-3 years ago you could still find them pretty easily for that price, now? Not so much.

It is so dumb. It's the same with old amps that people now realize were good. Like crunch gp3ks. I was searching for them on Craigslist and the few people who had them were asking $450....ridiculous if you ask me.

It is what it is. Never know what's going to cost what in the future.

i have the xb 500, 700 and i've tried the 400 and 600, lets say the 400 and 600 are back on the shelves where they belong, the sound quality is horrible compared to the old bass legends.
