Summary: The Sennheiser CX300 II Precision don't make much of a change to the now-classic CX300 blueprint, but you can't deny its winning formula – good looks, a fun sound and a fairly low price make these earphones winners.
Conclusion: I don’t think for the price you can get any better and for that reason it gets the Editors Choice Award. The Sennheiser CX 300-II just sounds balanced throughout the ranges and offers a high level of detail. It offers excellent sound, excellent comfort and it is affordable. This is indeed my “go-to” canalphone. I guess the only cons aren’t really cons toward the canalphone but with the lack of accessory, sleeper look and there should be a clip to prevent the wires...
Pros: Balanced sound, Soft pouch, Maximum comfort, Effective noise isolation
Cons: Can hear cord dangle around, Should include a brush for maintenance purposes, They can look boring to some
Summary: The Sennheiser MM 50 iPhone headset is naturally a good choice for those that need the ability to make calls with their music earphones still in place. But if you donâ€™t need the mic, the less expensive Sennheiser CX 300-II deserves a recommendation, offering a slightly less punchy sound with a more relaxed treble and a smoother effect overall.

Summary: The Sennheiser MM 50 iPhone headset is naturally a good choice for those that need the ability to make calls with their music earphones still in place. But if you don’t need the mic, the less expensive Sennheiser CX 300-II deserves a recommendation, offering a slightly less punchy sound with a more relaxed treble and a smoother effect overall.
Pros: Clear and well-rounded bass
Cons: Low overall volume compared to Sennheiser MM 50
Excerpt: At this stupidly low price you could jump to the conclusion that these Sennheisers are nothing but cheap tat. But, as you should guess from their star rating, you'd be wrong. The CX 300-IIs are a dramatic improvement over standard-issue buds, producing advanced levels of detail across the board.
Pros: Great clarity, detail and texture, comfortable
Conclusion: Given the weighty sound of the CX300’s they’re well suited to rock and dance, but they impart a warmth that is also good with jazz. But that’s not to say they’re not detailed as they unearth parts of the music some other headphones can obscure. But most important of all, they make music fun.
Pros: Nothing of note
Cons: Excellent value for money, Warm yet detailed sound, Decent sound isolation, Comfortable fit
Summary: It’s no secret that the headphones that come with portable players tend to be rather pants. Sure, some are better than others, like the ones that come with Sony’s new X Series Walkman , but even those can be easily beaten, and if you’re still using the shrill white buds that came with your iPod , well, shame on you, frankly.
