CX500's sound good. I can't remember what mine are, but they are Sennheisers that have exactly the same buds as the Sennheisers Sony Ericsson use on their HBH-DS970 bluetooth headphones.
For arguements sake, the DS970's go louder than when using the headphone socket on the X10, but the headphone socket sounds nicer.
Been doing some comparisons Nexus vs X10 vs iPod Touch 3G with the same headphones.
Nexus goes louder than X10, quality doesn't sound as good, but it's rooted with Cyanogen which makes the volume louder.
Touch goes a lot louder than both devices, enough to hurt my ears, but does so with high quality. I can't decide whether or not the quality is better than the X10, it's very close.
My headphone tastes are bias towards bass, but I do like the mids and treble to remain...just like to have a thump also!
