I'd say the MX 400 wins, if you don't need the in-line volume control of the MX 500... it makes the sound somewhat worse.

I never heard the Philips buds - but neither did anyone else ... there are no reviews anywhere, neither on Head-Fi, nor anywhere else. I think it's just some generic made-in-China stuff. And Philips aren't famous for their headphones, either.

Hey ! Thanx for your reply.
The Philips headphones are from www.philips.com, so I don't think they are "made in China"

LOL, do you think Philips gear is still made in the Netherlands?

Of course the Sennheiser are made in China, too - but I should have italicised the word "generic", meaning they Phillips are just re-branded OEM-stuff. Which can or cannot be a bad thing.

But believe me, the Sennheiser are really good in the $10 class of earbuds.

The difference between both companies is that Sennheiser is specialised in headphones and microphones, while Philips is an all-around manufacturer of every stuff electronic, from toasters to TV-sets.
