Closer Look

The retail package contains the headphones, a leather carrying bag and a gold-plated 6.3mm plug adapter. The 3.5mm connector hardwired to the headphones is also gold-plated. Cable length is 1.5m (4.92 feet), which is a bit short for standard PC use, but then again, these are portable headphones where a shorter length would be desired.

The earmuffs fold inward to allow for easier transportation. Each earmuff rotates side-to-side slightly and also pivots for maximum comfort. Unlike other headphones that I have reviewed, these have a wire coming from each earmuff, instead of a single wire. I prefer a single wire, as it looks neater and reduces the risk of the cables getting tangled.

The headband features two leather padded surfaces on the inside with a hinge in the middle used to fold the headphones when transporting. There is also a height adjustment slider on each side which further helps to get the perfect fit.

Each earmuff has a reflective center with the Cresyn name and model number printed in white. The left and right sides are labeled L and R, respectfully. The inside edge of the muffs are padded with soft leather but the actual hole for your ear is circular and seems awfully small. Hopefully this won't be an issue during use.

That pretty much covers everything. Let's move ahead and see how well the CS-HP500s perform.
