Bottom Line:   
I think maybe there were some typos in the review by Anton. The current top of the line headphones offered by Sennheiser are the Sennheiser Orpheus, a VERY fine set which retails for $12100. That's $12075 more than the MX-4. I know this is not supposed to be a discussion area, and Sennheiser certainly doesn't need defending, but this sort of misinformation annoys me. The rating I'm submitting should be disregarded, as it's required to post anything.

Anton,
Everyone knows that Sennheiser makes great headphones. Please note the difference between "earphones" and "headphones".

PS: The "top of the line" HD600 actually sounds worse than the HD580.

I think maybe there were some typos in the review below. These are not Sennheiser's top of the line phones. The MX-5s are a version of Sennheiser's *bottom* of the line phones, the MX-4. The current top of the line headphones offered by Sennheiser are the HD600, a VERY fine set which retails for $349.99. That's $325 more than the MX-4. I know this is not supposed to be a discussion area, and Sennheiser certainly doesn't need defending, but this sort of misinformation annoys me.

Bottom Line:   
The MX-5 is the current top of the line earphone from Sennheiser. It is pretty much the same thing as the MX-4 with the addition of a volume control. Frequency: 85 - 22,000hz. 16 ohms. The sound as compared with Sennheiser MX-3 (32 ohms) is more detailed in the midrange but leaner in bass. Compared to the MX-4, the sound seems leaner in bass but without the brightness in the high range. So how about the built quality? All three earphones are very poorly built. In fact, I didn't expect a respected headphone company like Sennheiser to make such products. Oh yeah, the MX-4 broke down after a week of listening. What's interesting about these earphones is that all of their cases are shaped the same as the discontinued top of the line Sony Fantopia 'diamond diaphram'. I found this Sony model to be the best earphone I've ever listened to, not to mention built like a gem. I guess that's what you would expect from a 27,000hz max earphone. Sony now has more expensive models with other "unique" diaphrams but I haven't got the chance to audition them. You should check out their website for the pictures. Overall, I found the Sennheiser MX-5 to be better as compared to low end companies such as Aiwa and Koss. But you can get a better deal with the Sony's so why bother. Now finding them could be a problem...
