How do the MX 270s compare to the MX 580s?

  1. DragonLord
    I have a pair of Sennheiser MX 580 earbuds, and they're the best earbuds I've had in terms of sound quality (though I know there's better)--but the left channel has started to intermittently drop out. :frowning2: I'm not willing to spend big bucks on headphones (about $30 max), I go through them about two or three times a year, and I prefer traditional earbuds (not in-ear).  It seems they no longer make the MX 580s for whatever reason (B&H says discontinued), so I ended up ordering three pairs (!) of MX 270s as a cheap solution.
    My question is, how do the MX 270s compare in terms of sound quality to the MX 580s?  What about build quality?  Should I get the MX 580s repaired or replaced under warranty?

    If the headphone failed within its warranty period, then of course you should persue a warranty repair/replacement. Unless, you broke it.

    Just my opinion, Jim

    MX-580 has better instrument separation and the bass is not boomy as MX-270. It is tight and punchy in MX-580 and the sound stage on MX-580's are huge compared to MX-270.
