Sony MDR-XB50AP In-Ear Extra Bass Headphones with In-Line Control
  • The cable is nice quality, and feels a lot like the cable that came with my MDR-1A's albeit a lot thinner.
  • Plenty of spare buds. The default ones seem a perfect fit for me.
  • Capable of ear piercingly loud volumes without failing/crackling.
  • Great passive sound cancelling. Keeps all the office noise out.
  • Inline microphone has received compliments for its clarity.
