Sony MDR-EX500 Appreciation Thread !

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Granted Sony might be a little bad with Customer Service (personal experience), but when they have phones like the EX500's, that boast clarity, noise isolation and good separation at the price of around £45, no phones can compete :)

At least that is what i think!

 

If you are wondering if you should buy these or Sennheiser CX range...i would seriously vote for the Sony's :D

 

I Hope you have enjoyed/will enjoy the phones, as much as i have done in the past year!

id say they are worth the £45 but im telling you the Radiopaq Jazz more than competes against them.

 

they are great for a really smooth, uber warm and soft sound though

lol..i actually like the J cable. something i miss on the W2's. Although...the reliability of the cable at that J split is bad. Period.

 

mark, i have a slight suspicion that you are stalking me hehe!

I like J cable, too. How long do you think this thread will go? Sony soon will announce new earphones; I wonder whether EX 500 will be discontinued?

No idea, but still even if it's discontinued...people might still love it nevertheless! :D

I have done. EX500's are MUCH better than the CX500's - they are 2 completely different leagues.

that doesn't look like the box I have...but packaging might be different.

Can you not buy it from amazon?

Many sellers use stock photos.

EX500 have two version SL (short cord) and LP (long cord). As far as I know: LP has different packages between America and Europe; SL has different packages between Japan and other parts of Asia. Asian version may have changed package in its later days, although I am not entirely sure.

The ebay seller has many legit items.

But, be careful.

(Just a possibility) Some importers think they have real goods, but sometimes they don't even know the authenticity.
