I have read many reviews on Amazon from varied customers and find that quite a few rave about the product and (oddly enough) others complain of the cheap quality and terrible tinny sound. How could this be, I thought to myself? When I researched my Sennheiser earbuds, the "Sennheiser CX 500 Lightweight Portable Gaming Headphones (earbuds)" earlier this year, I contacted Sennheiser directly and was told to be very careful where I bought my Sennheiser products. He said that they're earbuds were "...one of the highest counterfeited products sold on the internet!" Further stating that "...if the item was selling for much cheaper than where it sold everywhere else, that it was most probably a counterfeit."

Finally, I was assured that buying DIRECTLY from Amazon.com was safe and secure but not necessarily from those 3rd party sellers selling thru Amazon's marketplace or thru e-Bay. So. that being said, let the buyer beware! I paid the fair market price for my 500's (around $75) directly from Amazon.com and was pleasantly surprised at both the sound and build quality of the Sennheiser earbuds. I particularly liked the in-line volume control on the cord just below the Y and they sound just great and are very comfortable to wear even all day!

I suspect that many of those customers that were less than satisfied with their Sennheiser product(s) may have purchased them from a less than reputable seller who stocked the cheaper counterfeit junk coming out of Asia.

These are very good earphones! I've had the Ultimate Ears for $250 and I liked them a lot. But these seem to me to be just as good. I know, right? After two years or so, my first pair got so grungy inside that I ripped out the little mesh covers, -they still worked fine. Sent a pair to my brother. Bought another pair. They're very durable, -I wear them at the fitness center, working out, and when I'm in-line skating, and when I ride my bicycle (where there are no cars). I would buy another pair today. : )

These ear buds are probably the best I have tried so far. I had a pair of Bose headphones that broke and these were the replacement. I don't think they are quite as good sounding as standard around-ear headphones, but the sound is very accurate and they are comfortable in the ear. Well done Sennheiser.

Very nice sound, the quality of the sound is beautiful and is very portable.... very good selection for using with a MP3 player... I use iPod and the sound and the in ear accommodation is very nice.
