Sony MDR-XB1000 headphones pack supersized drivers, ballistic bass

For the audiophile who places bass at the utmost important level, Sony’s new MDR-XB1000 headphones should please the ear. The headphones, which look about as intense as they should sound, pack whopping 70mm drivers to give listeners the ultimate in headphone bass. The headphones play music at an impressive 2-30,000 Hz frequency range. The headphones are currently only on sale in Japan, for about $377, but audio nerds should keep an eye out for imports, or suffer and wait for a U.S. release date.
