Cons

Build quality is subpar - volume fluctuation/intermittence occurs with even minimal tangling

2 agree

L-type cord style is frustrating for many users - much more prone to strain and damage than Y-type models

1 agrees

Sound isolation is not as strong as some competitors in the price point - Shure and Bose models provide a tighter seal within the ear canal

The Sony MDR-EX500LP is a high-powered and high-priced pair of closed, dynamic earbud headphones designed for serious listeners seeking serious technology. It’s enclosed in an aluminum body that helps prevent redundant vibration for a smoother bass response and clear mid-high range audio. Featured are 13.5mm driver units that surprisingly are limited to a 100 mW power rating, though the frequency is exceptionally wide (4-28,000Hz). Plus the closed design ensures ambient noise doesn’t interfere with the user’s listening experience. All this in addition to a multi-player, high-resolution diaphragm give the low wattage Sony MDR-EX500LP the capability to render high-quality audio that sounds good, but won’t blow a user’s ears out.
