Summary: I've had a lot of expensive earphones in the past. I started off with Sennheiser cx300, which I absolutely loved, but eventually gave up on me. I replaced these with Ultimate Ears Super-Fi 4s.
Summary: Look = 10/10 Sound quality =9/10 best your gonna get for less than £50 Reliabilty = 10/10(had them ages now and no problems I have always been a fan of sonys headphones but these are by far superior to any other ones Ive ever had especially their predeccesor the Sony MDR-EX300SLB's (which were still...
Summary: After some research I decided to buy the EX500LPs. I concur with the other reviewers here on Amazon that they need a few hours play to 'wear in'. I just left them playing on an MP3 stick whilst I did other things.
Pay attention to the "for High Resolution Sound" subtitle.

Summary: When I first started using these Sony MDR-EX500LP headphones, I was worried that I'd bought a dud. The difference between instruments and vocals just wasn't distinctive and the sound all felt `rounded' together and fuzzy. And to top it all, there was a very noticeable lack of bass.
Summary: Tried these after buying the EX300s, oops. These do sound slightly better than the EX300s and the price difference is consistent with this in my view. The lead is a sensible length, unlike the EX300 and EX71 series, which are just too long.
Summary: This set of headphones will make you feel incredible!!! Worth of spending 50 pounds. I have never had better headphones. Recommend them in 100%. Don't waste any second, just buy them ^^, you won't regret. "Every moment has its music" - Sony's right and via these headphones they're proving it.
