Great bass and sound, but broke pretty fast.

  • Excerpt: After the headphones that came with my MP3 player died, I decided I needed to buy some new ones.  I did a little research and stumbled upon these CX500's and since they had some pretty good reviews and were a decent price, I decided to buy them.  When I first got them, I deifnitely wasn't disappointed in my purchase.

best headphones EVER

  • Excerpt: I have tried a lot of headphones and these are absolutely the best headphones I have! They are very comfortable on the ears. Although it does not have the noise canceling technologie built within the headphones itself, the external structure is sufficient enough to block outside noise.

  • Excerpt: I bought the Sennheiser CX 500 B ear bud headphones as a gift for my husband and he absolutely loves them.  He uses them primarily when he's running and says that not only is it excellent quality but it really fits snugly in his ears.  He has never had a problem with them coming loose or falling out.  There are three different ear bud sizes so you can customize it to fit just the way you want it in your ear.

Sennheiser CX-500's are alright.

  • Excerpt: The sennheiser cx-500 headphones are alright. They are not amazing though in my opinion, but for $50 they are an average deal. Sennheiser is a good company with alright customer support. The headphones may be uncomfortable though. The noise isolation is good and the sound quality is alright. It has alright bass and the sound quality is ok. The design is good and the product is kind of sturdy.

Excellent durable headphone with noise cancellation

  • Excerpt: This headphone has been my favorite, far better than those nasty while ipod headphones. I use them communting through NYC subways and it really makes my trip alot better. It cancels out noise from the outside and plays high quality music. I use it on my iphone and the only thing I wish was for me to be able to pick up calls with it. Unfortunately it doesn't but that doesn't make me dislike the headphone any less.

  • Summary: High frequencies lack detail and extension although mid and low frequencies are good and dynamic range is very respectable. I chose this over the cx300 because I needed the volume control and the balanced cable lengths. I always had problems wearing earphone so these earbuds are great and they come with a few sets of spare parts. Overall, very happy with this little earbuds given its price. Very easy to drive and love the noise isolation nature of earbuds.

  • Summary: I got these for cheap and they were my first pair that I didn't buy randomly. I read a review in which they were praised as a great IEM, even for the launch price of $ 150. Turns out Sennheiser bribed the magazine (there's no other way)!   Comfort is okay, the cable feels good but is highly microphonic. Even wearing the CX-500 over-ear doesn't help enough.   Audio quality is all muddy bass. There's nothing to it.
  • Pros: price, maybe volume control
  • Cons: sound

  • Summary: I've had it for 3 years. It just broke all of the sudden but I reckon its worth the price. I bought it around $120.
  • Pros: volume control, great bass
  • Cons: left ear side broke after 3 years of use XD

  • Summary: Not bad for a low/middle price range of Sennheiser CX headphone. Bass was not as good as my CX 300II when first listen to. Hopefully will soon improve after I boiled the CX500 for 24 hrs.
