Summary: I have these 2 years. There is a lot of 'cable noise' when you walk with it, and it does sound very quite with certain devices. It's not really a Sennheiser it seems. My second bottom-end product from this company and I am surprised how poor they are. Perhaps one has to spend 3 figures to get a decent set of earphones from them? Ermmm.. no there are other priorities in life!
Summary: These earphones fit well & are comfortable, unfortunately I won't be using them though due to the thin and tinny sound. Before even plugging them in to my iPhone, the ultra thin cable had already given me the idea of how they were going to sound. The CX 300's are well worth the extra money.
Summary: They are good headphones and produce Good bass.I've Bought two pairs of these headphones in the past and They Just Broke too easily, The wire can easily Tugged too much with normal use. Leaving one or both of the earphones un-able to continue working.For the Price I won't be replacing these earphones again.
Summary: Before I bought these headphones for my iPhone I took note of what other people had written - feedback varies but generally seemed very positive. There are some plus sides to these headphones but also a major downside. I like the quality of the sound. Not over the top base but solid and vocals are pretty much crystal clear.
Summary: If you solely listen to music where the bass is the most important thing, these are good little buds. Offering good comfort and noise isolation, they are good for drum and bass.... and thats about it. The bass muddies every other radio frequency. These were bought to fill the gap as I go on holiday, as my headphones of choice, the only slightly more expensive Sennheiser CX300II's, which are SO the superior, with lower bass and sound quality that fully exceeds these set.
Tinny sound, with very little bass and "zingy" edge

Excerpt: "I bought these on the strength of Sennheiser's reputation. My son has the Cx300 and thinks they are great.The headphones come in a needlessly large box, compared with cheaper ones -- presumably to influence your impression of their better quality. What a disappointment. The sound is clear, but unpleasantly tinny. They say it has "bass-driven sound" which makes no sense to me at all. On some tracks, there is an odd echoey feel to the sound, and it ...
Excerpt: Взял их после пионера, которые стоили в два раза дешевле и был просто в шоке, от того, какой ужасный звук. Видимо производитель постоянно играется с материалами, поэтому такие противоположные отзывы о них. В моих CX 200 баса нет вообще, нисколько, просто нет. Средние частоты как на старом советском радио, более менее только высокие нормально играют, однако это как раз проблема, т.к. они все собой забивают. Буду еще прогревать, но сомневаюсь, что поможет.
Pros: удобно сидят в ушах, хорошая звукоизоляция, 2 года гарантии
