The Sony XB950 series is known to be particularly fragile, so understand the build quality won't be as good with that model as the other two. You should really try to listen to the Senns and the JBL Elite. I compared them at a local Best Buy last night and they both sound great, but different. I'm a Sennheiser fan - I own the HD600, HD598, and the Gaming One - but the JBL Everest Elite 750NC really stood out as one of the two values of the dozen cans I tried last night (the other was the Audio-Technica SR6BT, a Best Buy exclusive). The SR6BT are not as strong in the bass region as the JBL, but the detail is amazing for a $150 headphone. The JBL sounded slightly warm, but with good treble (this is where the Sony extra bass headsets fall short), making them good "all around" headphones. If you have eclectic taste in music you'll like the JBLs. The Senns were great, too, but sadly I found the Sony MDR-1000xm2 ($298) to be superior.

Would you mind sharing where you foudn teh JBL 750NC for $150? Other than a single day before Thanksgiving when I wasn't yet in the market I haven't seen these for less than $200.

Thanks, and good luck!
