Sennheiser MX500 Headphones

 

Makers of premium consumer electronics face a difficult choice when they opt to sell lower-grade accessories: release unimpressive products and tarnish a good brand name, or release impressive products and risk cannibalizing sales of their expensive ones

Best value-priced pick for iPod replacement headphones for the price, nice integrated volume control, fit, look and case

No need to buy them until your iPod pack-ins die and can't be replaced under warranty ; very similar to Apple's product

If anyone wants the ultimate in-ear phones try the Shure-E2 E3 or E5's. These are without a doubt THE BEST MONEY CAN BUY. Forget any of these "consumer" products, these are designed for the pro market. Any time you see a performer on stage with...

Volume control on cord

Poor sound quality, lacking in bass, Uncomfortable

We can’t recommend these headphones. The sound quality is below average, they lack bass and they’re uncomfortable. A disappointing effort.

Great

 

Only issue i had with these phones was the shipping time. I ordered standard UPS and it took nearly an entire business week to get them. Other than that i have zero complaints. They work flawlessly with my RIO MP3 player .

Very Nice sound for teh money you pay ; Volume control on the cord

Short cord (if you need a long one)

SENNHEISER MX500 3.5mm Connector Earbud Headphone/Headset

 

The earphones, while I'd admit, has pretty good bass response, it is NOT as good as the 4th generation iPod earphones. The bass response is there, but the it does not outclass a good pair of studio headphones (the ones DJs and studio artists use)....
