Summary: Not sure if is says in the specifications but the shorter of the earbud cables is on the left.
Pros: The sound is great. They block out ambient noises. They feel great in ear once you get them situated.
Cons: The asymmetrical cable. I dint think before I bought them that it would bug me but it really does. The part of cable right below the ear bud is not as hard as I thought it would be, which make it kind of hard to adjust without taking it all the way out.
Summary: Just needed to throw this out there after reading comments on the new CX300-II. I have been using a pair of the CX300 for over 7 years...on almost a daily basis and they are still rock solid. At the time, I spent around $75 and it turned out to be worth every penny.
Pros: I've owned several sennheiser buds before, so I know the sound quality is good. I just happen to receive a defective pair.
Cons: poor quality control. could tell the moment i plugged them in something was wrong. The left earbud speaker wasn't attached to the casing properly, so its loose and has really low volume compared to the right ear.
Summary: Use a dot of superglue under the rubber earpieces to prevent them from ever falling off. If you lose your rubbers you can buy replacements from Sennheiser.
Pros: Great sound, great bass. Pretty durable for earbuds (I mean, c'mon guys--earbuds aren't made of adamantium. They won't last forever.) J cable, for those who like that sort of thing. Narrow 3.5mm plug--fits into phone cases with no problem.
Cons: I had CX300's and now CX300II's. Being careful about where I put them, they each lasted around 3 years. Both times it was a frayed wire that did them in--the 3.5mm plug and the drivers are fine. If you're handy with a soldering iron you can do your own repairs for frayed wire breaks. Google "Senn...
Summary: i've seen some of these reviews from people that seemingly have purposely bought equipment they didn't want and then bashing it. the Asymmetrical cable is like that on purpose, it's not a factory defect. if you don't like asymmetrical cables, don't buy this. it's that simple.
Pros: the Asymmetrical cabling is a useful feature, sound quality is very good(especially if you configure your audio equipment, nothing sounds great without configuring for your own ears), solid build construction, comfortable wear.
Cons: i wish this had a clip somewhere around the splitting box, though this isn't major. the right Earbuds' cable length compared to the left might be just a little long. the 3.5mm connector is a J jack; most of the time people are going to want a straight jack for maximum slimness. not a major issue ...
Summary: Bought these in February and they broke in July. Always kept them in their little pouch and wrapped them around my first three fingers to store them. Oddly, the break happened in the main cable, not in the thinner one that went to the individual bud.
Pros: Comes with a little coin purse to keep them in, great sound, anti-tangle cable actually makes it not tangle, comfortable. Asymmetrical cable makes it easy to figure out right from left and reduces cord noise.
Summary: After MANY years (at least 7 years) of use they finally "broke". Housing at the apex of the right angle jack. But the wiring is still intact therefore they (both L/R) still function, though delicate now.
Pros: *(See my previous entry on this product) addendum: They even functioned nicely as earplugs in a pinch (Moogfest 2012, forgot the custom set at home, and the CX-300II did fine (~40% reduced sound pressure, and an extra -8dB between 800-15k (so not quite flat performance, but better than deafness a...
Summary: Decent treb. Near perfect mid ranges. Acceptable bass. 3 sets of of different sized rubber The thing to bear in mind is that this a socially targeted headset. More specifically towards nations (more prominently in Asia) that have social trends towards friends sharing one headset.
Pros: Decent treb. Near perfect mid ranges. Acceptable bass. 3 sets of of different sized silicon ear buds ranging from small, medium, to large ear canals.
Cons: None, you're getting exactly what you're paying for. However the reason I give it a 4 is because they should have used a mechanism to adjust the length of each phone. The downside to that though is that it makes it more prone to getting tangled. Nevertheless, the cord works exactly as intended. T...
