I would say the MX-985 are better in clarity and detail. The blox BE5 is a bit warmer and has better bass extension. I use the MX-985 for critical music listing and when I want to be more engaged I switch to the BE5 (and sometimes ANV3 however the BE5 has better and clearer treble). The BE5 is also a bit easier in use since it is lighter and has a better fit. Although the MX-985 fits me and I can wear it for hours without pain or problems the fit is just not as good as with the blox, this could also be the reason the blox gives me more bass. I listen to these buds without an amp with an iphone5.
