Personally, I think the Sony XB900N’s are currently the best Mid Range ANC headphones out there right now. They offer a very complete package without any major compromises. But technically the XB900N’s are a part of Sony’s Extra Bass Headphones line up meant for bass heads who really like bass, hence the XB in their name. So if you’re a bass head you’re probably wondering if you should get these or the Skullcandy Crusher 360’s. So lets see which ones right for you.
There are a lot of different type of headphones… theres closed back headphones, open back headphones, audiophile grade headphones, and active noise canceling headphones. But theres a special type of headphones for a special type of person that absolute loves bass. And thats bass head headphones. And today we’re comparing the Skullcandy Crusher 360’s against the ever so popular Sony MDR-XB950N1, which arguably has been the best Basshead headphones on the market for awhile now.
I dont know what happened with the Skullcandy Venue, personally I feel that for $180 ANC headphones they under deliver cause their build quality isn’t the best, their ANC isn’t good, and their bass bottoms out way too much. But when it comes to the new Skullcandy Crusher 360’s… thats a whole other story. These things are sensory overload, and I love it. They’re definitely not for everybody, and I would have done a few things differently… but over all these are just a lot of fun.
