CX500 review

We all know about the standard-issue iPod headphones - they’re not the greatest, and sooner or later everybody invests in an upgrade. If you’re on a budget, or if you don’t want a set of £300 earphones flapping around on the Tube waiting to be snagged by somebody’s umbrella, then the CX500s are worth a look.

In a package that includes spare earpads (in assorted sizes), a pouch, a cable clip and a stylish cable tidy, the CX 500’s performed admirably. We tried them with iPod games, movies and, of course, some music, and they’re a significant step up from the iPod originals.


Unlike some, they’re very easy on/in the ear – they’re comfortable, and there are no overly harsh frequencies... you’ll never get tired listening to these.
