Sony MDR-EX500LP Review

 

Light weight headphone revolution achieved

Sony MDR-EX500LP is an unusual set of headphone having extremely light weight. This small gadget is yet very high end sound wise. More satisfyingly, the price range suits young budget easily. The dynamic transducer is another unique feature of this...

These headphones do not properly catch the mid-range all the times. The cords are not adequately long. Plus, the carry case looks nice but they may not be practical in many use situations

My Sony Headphone Review ”

 

I've had the Sony MDR-EX500LP Premium EX Earbud Style Headphones for over 2 years and have used them for hours a day on a daily basis; indoors, outdoors, at the gym, etc. They still work great and I haven't lost any of the removeable earbuds. I...

Consumer review by:

Sony MDR-EX500LP

 

Good sound quality, nice fitting units. Has very good sound fidelity

Case is bad and kinks the wire when it wraps around the plastic housing ; Bad quality for such a price. The units have a tendency to open, exposing the driver. Had to seal with super-glue

Consumer review by:

Damn nice earphones - get them now!

 

Upgraded from the stock iPod classic headphones and the difference is just mind-blowing. The mid-range was a bit harsh initially, but after about 20-30 hours usage they've worn in nicely. Bass is so deep and pure, an absolute pleasure to listen through...

Product Specifications

Music fans will love the clear sound of the MDR-EX500LP earbud style headphones. The key technology is the closed-type, vertical in-the-ear 13.5mm driver unit, which allows for a larger driver with substantial sound while maintaining a comfortable fit over a long period of time. Offering crisp audio for the perceptive ear, these earbuds boast a newly developed multi-layer diaphragm which provides high-resolution sound and recognizes clear vocal, while keeping fair bass. In addition to being sound tuned by hand, these EX premium earbuds are constructed with metal to minimize vibration. The hybrid silicone earbuds consist of two kinds of silicone to help block noise by creating a close seal with the ear.
