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.
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.
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.
