  1. Thanks for your review! I own the 350's, pleased with them but wanted to try an upgrade. I am waiting to get my 500vi's, only a bit concerned about that “hit in the bass” you mention, because the iPod sounds so flat, the headphones need to do almost all the work. Using the iPod's EQ is impossible without getting distorted sound, unless you are listening to music mastered in the 80s, part of the 90s, everything else has such compression and loudness. The Sound Check function does not solve this issue, so I have to leave EQ always off and rely entirely on the headphones for sound performance (the presets are many and not even too good, wish they could be customizable).
