The portable music player headphones par excellence
In terms of quality, the MX500 has the solid foundation of the other Sennheiser headphones we previously tested. There is a particularly pure sound and especially an excellent dynamic range. Highs and mediums are well produced while basses are a little drier than with the MX450 but are still of good quality. Overall, these headphones also have a somewhat dry sound but it doesn’t seem to be a fatal flaw for this product. Finally, in terms of comfort we didn’t encounter any ear fatigue after prolonged use.
- Audio quality
- Good dynamic range
- Easily accessible volume control
- Sound is a bit too dry
The MX500 sets itself apart from its rivals by a surprisingly good dynamics and overall quality.
