If they had standard cables and sounded as good as the A161P, I'd probably be interested in owning a pair myself. Even though I'm using the A161Ps a lot, I just don't have the need for the mic/remote and without them the price could be more competitive.

Any other BAs in the same price range? I like the Sony's but there are 2 issues...jcord and the fact that it is Sony. I like the form factor of the xba1 slightly better than the 161. Right angle plug and what looks like a smaller body.

There’s the Fisher SBA-03s but I believe they’re more expensive than the A161Ps.

I really like these but may have to take them back. Ib ought them because I coudlnt find my E10 and thought I had my vpulse sold. Found the e10 and pulled the vpulse because I didn't think I was getting enough for them so I think the sony has to go back for now. Its a shame, they are really comfortable too.

I probably will...but I know myself and if I keep these and put the others up for sale I will end up keeping them. I will post tho others up for sale and if they move out I will go re-buy the xba1. What sucks is I have a $50 frys gift card but they dont sell the xba1. jackasses.

Yep, XBA-1 are very comfortable, i wear them for 8 hours per day and no itching on the ear canal, no pain from hard plastic casiings and plus you don't get tired of listening to those.

Hi, I'm thinking about buying these, but I don't listen to just classical music. Can you tell me how do they play more bassy music, like reggae, house, electronica or metal?
I am not a basshead, but I don't like when there is no bass either...
My other option is dynamic Sunrise Xcited and Sunrise Xcape IE
They're all around 80 $.

I had to eq them a little to be satisfied for electronic stuff. The bass is always there though, just not very prominent.

While I haven't heard these, from the reading I've done from you guys & others they seem more like the A161Ps with a little less bass. While the A151s have a little more bass but with less extension on both ends. If I were in the market for balanced armatures, with the deals I've seen over the last few weeks on the A151s, that's the way I'd go. That said, I'm liking the A161Ps better but who wants to pay the extra for 2 features if you don't need them (mic & remote). That said, the J-cable would keep the Sonys off my radar :/
