The easiest way to explain the Sennheiser CX-150's is that they do what you can reasonably expect. You can't really expect much from a pair of sub-50 dollar IEM's, and frankly, I was pleasantly surprised by the general quality of the CX150's. The sound quality is fine enough for portable listening from an iPod, as I use them, and I have yet to hear anything less than serviceable come from these IEM's.
Pros: Punchy Bass (especially for a pair of low-grade IEM's), Relatively comfortable, handle vocals very well
Cons: Incredibly microphonic cable, cable also very prone to tangling, tips tend to fall off
Summary: I bought these at a closing sale for $20 and they were definitely worth the money. The bass is excellent for bassheads on the go and the sound isolation is excellent for noisy areas like bus rides. They are pretty comfortable and are easy to fit because of the shape. They're also pretty loud at low volume and with a proper rig you can get some serious bass out of them.
The bass is what really grabs your attention when you get these.
Pros: bassy, great quality, very solid build
Cons: i had two pairs that broke after a while, gave up on them
These are the best earbuds I have ever placed in my ears!

Excerpt: I have tiny ears; tiny ears with tiny openings for earbuds. Most of the earbuds I have tried are too big and too uncomfortable for me to wear. Until I found the Sennheiser CX150 Noise Attenuation Earbuds I swore by Skullcandy's Ink'd buds. I had heard my son talk about the Sennheiser buds and how good they were so I didn't hesitate to buy a pair when I saw them marked at $20 (retail $69). I adore these earbuds!
Summary: I'm amazed at the sound quality from these earphone. The bass is amazing from a relatively cheap earphone. Some people say that it can get a bit crackly from hitting the cables but I have not found this at all. Definitely the best earphones I have every bought. Although a case would be nice to protect them.
Excerpt: "NOTE: the headphones in the picture aren't actually the right headphones Sennheiser CX 150 earphones are low to mid range in ear headphones. I was recommended them in a shop as being the best available on the market for the price and that they are not much different to far more expensive in ear headphones in terms of quality, so gave them a try and have not been disappointed. The set itself is discrete and small. They are black and functional in ...
Pros: Cheap, excellent sound quality, durable and reliable
Cons: Very few . . . perhaps the design could have been better
Summary: I could actually hear the bass in these earphones! Not as much as my on-ear headphones, but it can defiantly be felt. Sound quality is also amazing. I could hear aspects in my music that I never had before. Compared to my Sony Bass-Boost earphones (Which cost about $10 less) these headphones make them feel really cheap. Noise isolation is very good, and they feel reasonably comfortable in your ear.
Pros: sound quality - amazing, bass can be heard, decently comfortable, good cables, noise isolation
Excerpt: Эти наушники приобрел "в подмогу" к PX 100 - для тех случаев, когда наушники с оголовьем одевать не с руки. Честно говоря, опасался, что зук меня разочарует, что он окажется "зажатым" или гулким.
Excerpt: Ну, что сказать, Sennheiser он и в Африке Sennheiser. Знакомый дал эти уши на ремонт (после гогда жесточайшей эксплуатации и несчастного случая, провод перетерсявозле шеи). По звуку очень порадовали. Никогда не думал, что вкладышные уши могут так звучать.
