Thread: Sennheiser MX500 White

  1. #61

    Default Re: white sponge + human ear = recipe for disaster!

    Hung Bros in Funan is it? Saw the MX550 at Senn web site, wondering anyone can comment this over the famous MX500? except the MX550 didn't come with white cord.

    FYI, I'm looking one to replace the default earpiece from Ipod video.

    Any other recommendation?

    Hung bros at SLS. Funan's Challenger have. They displayed at their ipod section. Just saw them last week. Ironically, i started this thread about white mx500 and now it arrived, i did not buy it. Sian liao.

    To me, i prefer mx500 to 550 cos it have better bass and built quality.. 550 is clearer and has more treble.

    they're quite helpful lah. I needed to replace all the sponges and cables on my HD600, but they normally only carry the earpad. I needed the cord as well as the head strap padding and they offered to order in from Senn and called me to collect. heck I didn't even buy the HD600 from them in the first place.

    hey ..when was this ? No cost involved too as Senn gives lifetime warranty ?.... my HD600 pads need replacement too So, must 'jio' jacqueline ah ? ok... noted

    simi is Cardas? I had to replace the cable because my kids pulled on it and it kena internal injury. But heck the HD600 is great for playing games because of the bass response

    yeah Jacq was so incredulous when I told her I use the HD600 for playing computer game.

    btw she is the one with the "not so perfect" complexion

    hey it is very good for games lah. you can really hear the booming explosion with the bass

    but this cardas, does it mean the original Senn cable also has all these splicing and what nots?

    btw the cable is cheap cheap only $35. the ear pads are $65 man! and the head band pad is only $15. damn impress because Jacq would specially order from Senn and call me to come collect, for a $15 item

    The replacement senn cable will be the same as your orginal ones lor. I can't afford a HD600/650 cardas combo, so i'm not sure bout its performance. Din say its no good for PC games but a high end pair....i think will excel in music.

    This Senn asia....sometimes a bit screw up. I ask them where to get replacement ear pad for HD485 (BTW it has very strong bass) and they told me Hung Bros got. Went down, they told me no have.

    yah it is good for games and music don't have to get so many different pairs mah

    btw the HD600 earpad is the same as a few other models I think HD590 amongst them. so for those cheaper model the earpad is damn expensive compared to the original price loh.

    just go to hung and sian that jacq a bit ask her to order for you lah.

    Keep them in your dry cabinet. Or a dry box with silica gel. Those pelican boxes will also work i guess.

    Senn got lifetime warranty? No la, i think 2 years only. Koss got lifetime warranty.

    Yeah if you use them, throw in some silica gel. But dunno if really airtight or not? Or put them in your digicabi.

    I just found my old earphones but still cannot find my old discman.
