Expert review

Part of Sony's Extra Bass headphones range, with the WH-XB700 Sony tells you to 'embrace the bass' with sound that will 'lift every track with thundering rhythm'. The headphones are designed to raise the levels of low-frequency sounds for a stronger bass, while maintaining 'outstanding' clarity to vocals. So are these headphones a worthy treat for bass lovers, or should you stay away? We put them to the test.
