Sennheiser CX500

1. Introduction

Well, it is that season again - a new crop of iPods and other assorted MP3 players will give life to the accessory industry. Cases, headphones, sound docks and other systems are beginning to flood the market. If you are like most people, the first thing you will buy after you spend your hard earned cash on a new music player will be a quality set of Earphones. Let's face it - the bundled headphones that come as "stock" equipment with most MP3 players are terrible.

You spend upwards of $200.00 for a state of the art music player only to play your sound through $5.00 crappy earphones. Luckily, there is no shortage of new - state of the art - Earphones to choose from. Some of the finest names in the audio industry have recently introduced new lines of earphones that will literally "rock your socks off."

One of those trusted names is Sennheiser - makers of quality audio products for over 50 years. Last year, I reviewed the CX300 and the OMX70 models - both of which earned high accolades. This year, the Classic line has been expanded.

I have spent some time with the flagship model of the new line - the CX500 in ear phones. Are these the ones to invest in? Read on for my thoughts.




As one of the world's leading manufacturers of microphones, headphones and wireless transmission systems, Sennheiser is celebrating 50 years of wireless technology innovations. Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is active worldwide. Sennheiser Electronic Corporation is the U.S. wholly-owned subsidiary, with headquarters in Old Lyme, Connecticut.

The "Official" line on the CX 500 reads as follows:

The CX 500 is the new top-of-the-range model in the Classic line and comes in high gloss black, high gloss white and titanium. It stands out for having a wider frequency response and special flange ear adapters which give the ear canal phones an even better seal. A convenient volume adjuster maintains total control over incoming audio levels on any playlist or shuffle. The CX 500 comes with a pouch, cable clip and cord winder for an unsurpassed value.

CX 500 (White/Titanium/Black): $129.95
