Excerpt: The CX 500s are entry-level earphones; a step up from the basic-level £10 range, such as Sony's MDREX50LPs or JVC's XXs. They have three notable strengths. First, the sound isolation is very effective and not at all a gimmick; you really will not be able to hear any outside noise if you have the correctly fitted buds and sound at a reasonable level.
Excerpt: I first bought Sennheiser CX500s two years ago. Since then, I've lost two sets, and... bought replacements. These earphones truly merit their price tag. =Initial Impressions= I'm used to higher-quality sound coming from headphones rather than earphones, so I was skeptical at first about the CX500s. However, I trusted the Sennheiser brand, so I decided to pick up a set and see how they sounded. =Sound Quality= The sound quality from these is amazing.
Excerpt: I decided to upgrade from my bog standard white Apple headphone after hearing some rave reviews on the Seennheiser product range and although I was a little scepticle initally about forking out the best part of £40 I havent been disappointed. They come with a variety of rubber plus that attach to the end of the earphones to ensure a snug fit, so should fit most ear shapes / sizes.
Excerpt: I have said before in my reviews that I love Apple products and that I also prefer the in ear kind rather than the ones that rest on the nook of the ear. I'm a sucker for a big name and when it comes to ear and headphones you don't get much bigger than Sennheiser. Even though I love the look of the White Apple ear buds they are not actually noise cancelling earphones. That said, they are better than the standard earphones that come with iPods.
Great sound quality for the price, nice extra features too.

Excerpt: It doesn't take long to realize just how bad the quality of standard headphones are when you plug these in and have a listen. Had them for a good few years now. Sound >>>> Within seconds you realize how much sharper each note is, deeper the bass is, and provides superb external noise blocking. Use this near enough every day and they still work perfectly thanks to the small pouch provided.
Summary: Very good, I was very pleased with the product I bought, free postage! A++ Great replacement, for the last headphones I had, it I would recommend this to anyone who wanted high sound qualty headphones.
If you love bass and crystal clear music buy these as they dont dissapoint

Summary: I love these Headphones best i ve ever used, i bought a higher sennheiser model thinking it would be better spent $200 on the headphones but they just were missing that bass that iv e come to love from these.
Excerpt: INTRO Admittedly after buying my iPod the main reason I threw the standard 'iconic' white earphones away was because my ears are weird and they don't fit....I do however hear a lot of disgruntled friends who's ears they do fit ranting about how the sound quality is also a lot less than they would expect from Apple. DECISION I am a very picky consumer, especially when it comes to anything involving sound or music (being a sound engineer) so my research was extensive.
