  • 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.

Good, but...

  • Summary: I wish these one had the other style cord (A-symmetrical). I just had a pair of the CX300's but I was careless lost them. I was going to re-buy them, but then I saw these. I think I'm going to return these and save $$ and get the CX300's again.
  • Pros: Good look & sound. I LOVE the case it comes with and the different sets of covers for the headphones. Cord is a good length. I like the volume control on the cord, but I haven't used it much.
  • Cons: I am one of the few who like the CX300 type cord. I like how the headphones can just lay on your shoulders. The CX300's are almost just as good for over 50$ cheaper. I can't tell that much of a difference.

Sennheiser CX 500 sound-isolating earphones

25 February 2008
  • Summary: I got this pair of CX-500 dirt cheap, as a matter of fact, much much cheaper than the normal street price. As for the performance, I am actually quite surprised with what it can do. I am a user of the higher end Sennheiser 'headphones' such as the HD-600 and 590s.
  • Pros: Comfy fitting, strong bass.
  • Cons: Like the official review says, bass not connected to the mid and high.

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.
  • 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...
  • Pros: Great Bass and Sound isolation from small light Earphones.
  • Cons: Bass could be overpowering for some forms of Music

A good quality earphone

27 August 2009
  • 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.
