    I own the CX500's, but however do not own Apple in-ears, and the CX500's are great. Highly rated for their price.

    Get the CX500s defiantly. I had the apple in ear headphones and they were sh*t. Craped out in a few weeks and the remote broke for no reason (I'm not the only one who had this happen). I just bought some CX500s and they're awesome. Highly recommended.
  4. If I were you I would get the CX500s they're really good although because I'm crap at looking after headphones I broke them - my fault though

    The CX500's were discontinued. You can get them for <$50 now.

    How the hell did you have the in-ear ones when they came out not even a year ago...

    You meant the earbuds right?

    CX500's are great, i have them, and they have great bass.

    Apple has come out with two pairs on In-Ear Headphones, I think his is talking about the "1st Gen" ones.

    I had the Apple In-Ears and I enjoyed them. For their price, however, there are much better alternatives (Like the Sennheiser CX500s)

    It depends on a person's preference.
    If they like the Apple IEMs, then they might not like the CX500s.
