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...

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)

Consumer review by:

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)....

Consumer review by:

Awesome headphones


This pair of headphones is simply awesome. I got these headphones around a month back and I am totally satisfied with my selection. The sound quality is really good.

SENNHEISER MX500 3.5mm Connector Earbud Headphone/Headset


I got these to replace the earbuds that came with my Creativelabs Zen Touch. There is a noticible difference in the sound quality. Do yourself a favor and get these for xx bucks.
