Sony's 'extra bass' range is all about increased power in the low end of the sound range, aimed at fans of dance music and hip hop. The MDR-XB550AP headphones are a wired, on-ear member of this range. We sent them to our lab to find out whether these headphones are all about lush bass tone, or harsh bass drone.
