There are one or two, depending on how you count, reasons why one might prefer the 280: it includes multichannel decoders for DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD. Current x500 players include only stereo...

You'll get 7.1 Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA depending on the title. You won't lose any of the sounds, though. The overhead sounds are included in the "bed" ear-level channels.
