Sennheiser MX-500s

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got some Senn MX-500s about 2 weeks ago and have been very impressed with them. They sound more neutral than the Sony 888s and almost as detailed. I like them much more than my 888s and I highly recommended the to anyone wanting a cheap pair of earbud. My only concerns are that they may not fit in your ears, and the included foamies are rather cheap and muddle the sound, but the phones are ony $20 so who cares?

The MX500 are certainly more balanced than the 888s.

But, I just prefer the more natural 888 sound - which as such beautiful, lush mids.....the 888s actually have better mids than my 495s, imo.

Plus, the 888s have a ton more detail than the MX500s when powered right out of a portable.

Though they do have a hefty price tag....
