The answer is obvious that high budget headphones give you good quality of sound and build quality. 

According to us both headphones are best in their budget, if your budget is high you can go with SONY MDR XB950B1 and if your budget is normal like 3000 then you can go with Sony MDR-XB550AP.

Sony MDR-XB950B1

The sound quality is great at the price range, very balanced and rich. The bass quality of this headphone is amazing because this headphone is specially made for extra bass so you don’t worry about bass quality, this is the best headphones under 15000 for bass quality.

The build quality of this headphone is pretty nice, the headband of the top is metallic and the downside of the headband is that you get soft cushions.

The ear cups size is big and matte finish body with Sony branding and half body made from hard plastic and high-quality metal.

On the downside of the earcups you get volume up-down button and play/pause, skip button and another side of ear cups you get a power button, bass effect button, USB charging port and audio jack.

First of all, I just want to say that if you have an older Sony MDR-XB950BT then don’t go for this upgrade version because in the real world there is just a little bit change in this version. 

There is only little change that is Bluetooth version v4.1 which is better than previous 950BT and little bit better bass.

Sony MDR-XB950B1 is also wok as wired headphone but the volume level goes down nearby half when using them with the cable. 

MDR-XB950B1 support Qualcomm processor so this is another sign of better sound quality.  

It doesn’t support the fast charge and it will take approx 4 hours to charge your device fully. 

You can easily check the battery level by pressing the power button once or in the Sony headphone app. 

The main highlight of these headphones is bass and one more thing is they define vocals very correctly.
