    very satisfied with overall sound quality. Feel like nothing is really missing regarding sound. Has full bodied detailed bass, clear mids, and crisp but not harsh highs. Flat cable is a nice touch, it is very flexible and works great. The only thing that is only slightly annoying is the small case, but it does still work. Regarding the fit and comfort, it is great, many ear tips to choose from. A personal tip I've found from several years of use of IEM headphones, pull the top of your ear while inserting, if needed also clean the ear entrance with a tissue and maybe some water or hydrogen peroxide as this will keep the headphones in place if they are slipping out. As compared the lower model UE 350, these have much more controlled bass response, the UE 350 also has good sound quality, but the bass response will surely be too boomy or simply have too much presence for some. Coming from experience with the UE super.fi.3 and Sennheiser HD 595, I feel the UE 500 contend in the market very well. For the price point of around 46 or so dollars, I would highly recommend these UE 500's. Though, If you are looking for truly audiophile sound for around this budget though, look up Vsonic GR06 =)

    I just got these today and the only issue i have is that it isn't a loud ear bud. although you get really crisp and sharp sounds from the ear buds. the volume is restricted. this would be a bummer but it actually works in my favor because when i take them out i realize that the sound is amplified when there is an open air circulation as to a close air circulation in the ear canal. the noise isolation is good. i would have to add that i wish these headphones were 50 bucks because i would have stocked up on them. otherwise i bought 2 of these. and am happy for the moment. skullcandy has some great headphones out there with a ton of bass. but i was looking for something that deviates from the butt load of bass and is more crisp and clear. these ear buds may do it. but only time will tell for me. i will add a new review after 6mos to a year.
