  • 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.

Sennheiser CX 500 Headphones: Great buy

LauraHann..., Ciao
15 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Sennheiser CX 500 Sound Quality I've tried a wide range of different earphones under the £40 price range and these are by far the best sound quality I've come across. Since trying them out I haven't gone back. The base is powerful and the mid-ranges are of decent quality, though the high pitches weren't as great as they could be, while still vastly superior to, say, the standard Apple earphones.
  • Pros: Great sound quality for the price, durable
  • Cons: None

A Treat For Your Ears

Great_rev..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: I've Got The Music In Me We all love music don’t we? But without a good set of earphones or headphones to listen to it on, it can be a little like attempting to mow the lawn with a pair of scissors - you just don’t get the desired affect unless you shell out for the real thing. After being blinded for years by Apple’s attractive, yet fundamentally useless branded earphones, I finally saw the light when I invested in a pair of Sennheiser earphones, the CX 500 to be exact...
  • Pros: Superb sound quality, included volume control, comfortable fit, extra ear buds
  • Cons: A little on the pricey side

  • Summary: Before I bought these I used ipod standard white headphones. The difference these make is, to me, absolutely incredible. My music tastes range from Jazz to drum and bass, from electro to prog rock, and for all genres, these headphones are infinitely better than any phones I have tried for under £80 and match up very well to much more expensive ones such as sonys MDR-EX500LPs.
  • Pros: Great Bass and Sound isolation from small light Earphones.
  • Cons: Bass could be overpowering for some forms of Music

A good quality earphone

  • Excerpt: I bought this on amazon to replace my rubbish mp3's earphone. It come in a well packaged case and two set of earbuds. The sounds from them are impresive and they do cancel out background noises, not all though. This is really a good buy for me as i travel a lot using the buses and trains. There are people who just talk annoyingly on their phone or to their friends in the bus and those who play out silly musics from their mp3s or phones.

Good quailty midrange in-earphones

  • Excerpt: I bought these in-earphones as a replacement for my CX400s which had an unfortunate incident with a vacuum cleaner! The Sennheiser CX500s come with a carry case, clip, Two complete sets of earbuds. Sound-wise, there is very little if any difference between the CX500 and the CX400, the only additional feature is the volume control on the CX500s. I have, in the distant past, owned a couple of pairs of CX300s.
  • Pros: Reliability

Mattygroves and Her Unexpectedly Good Earphones

  • Excerpt: I am coming to realise that iPod/MP3 player earphones take quite a beating indeed. I have owned a number of pairs of said earphones over the past two or three years, and inevitably, eventually they break down (normally the wires get frayed or something, and so you receive audio out of only one ear).
  • Pros: Superb sound, comfortable fit, volume control on the cord
  • Cons: Some earbuds were missing, slighly pricy for in - ear earphones
