It\'s good.


I bought it for my MP3. My old one, Sennheiser MX500 was broken recently, which I had used for about 5 years. That\'s why I chose this to replace the old one. For me, it\'s so far so good. I know, it\'s far away from the best ones, but it has the most...

Great sound if they can fit in your ears


Sound quality is great, in-line volume control (cant turn sound completely off though), nice pouch and a couple different ear piece sizes

The buds are really big as some have already mentioned. They are almost painful to wear. I cant imagine who these were designed for. I guess if you are part of the 5% of the population with huge ears you have found the perfect set of earbuds

Sennheiser - Earbud Stereo Headphones (MX 580)


Comes with a case, fittings, etc. Those aren't very useful to me, but they may be to others. The volume control is a bit strange, but nothing unbearable.

I enjoy the sound very much, though I upgraded from simple Apple earbuds. I find them very comfortable in my ears. Crisp and clear sound. I've listened to a variety of podcasts, music, and some video games with them. They seem to cancel a bit of noise,...

The bass is limited, but not something I noticed until I read another review, which caused me to realize that were the case

Need a nub on the volume control so you can find it by feel.

Great sound at great price. I've bought lots of earbuds looking for good sound. I've been to the Bose store and these are way better for the money, and they just sound better. Really smooth sounding I listen to every type of music from Classic Rock...

Don't wear them to the gym they will fall out. They are not noise cancelling or supressing. But that not what you bought them for. The volume control is funky and not easy to feel with your hand

Consumer review by:

Clear sound prevails


The sound is very clear and very sharp. The design of the earpiece could be a bit better to stay in my ear! I will get a lot of use from this item with a number of different electroic products.

It does the job


Don't expect miracle from a ear phone at the price range $25.

The sound is acceptable ; Wire doesn't tangle like a maniac ; Built in volume control for easy volume adjustment

Cable could be longer

Consumer review by:

Works as expected


The sound's better than my old set of Sony earbuds which I found on the side of a trail, but that's not saying much. The sound isn't spectacular, but what do you expect from $30 earbuds? Works as expected.

Portable ; Carrying case included ; Includes earpiece size adjustments ; Nice design ; Cable management is nice ; On cable sound adjustment ; Bass comes out quite well

Only decent sound

Consumer review by:

Avoid at all cost


very disappointing , especially considering they are produced by such a reputable company

mids and highs are very detailed and crisp

Absolutely no bass. This is due to the physical design of the earbuds and the not-very-effective coverings they come with. If you manually hold them and angle them slightly forward (towards the direction you look) and push them in slightly, they...
