I just ordered a pair of HD500's from NewEgg. I paid $52 with shipping included. I was waffling between the HD500 and the HD497's based upon a zillion reviews I read. I then called Sennheiser and an operator told me for House music that has a lot of bass, the HD500's are the best...

I ordered them and then found a link to this website and EVERYONE has trashed the HD500's and loved the HD497's. I haven't even received them yet, but based upon ALL the reviews I am wondering if I should return them? Are they that bad? Are the 497's THAT much better?

I listen mostly to House music in MP3 format on my laptop with AC'97 sound built into the motherboard... HELP!

eh...here's jessica's post . i haven't heard the 497s myself, but by judging by other people's opinions of them on this forum, it seems as if they are better than the 500's.

never heard the 500's, but reviews haven't been kind. 497's are a great phone, I find them very close to the 580's quality at 1/3 the price.

Well, I cancelled my order for the HD500's and re-ordered the HD497's... NewEgg.com had awesome customer service! Wow, it was worth the $3 more than Amazon!!!
