  • Summary: I read great reviews for these earphones but when I started testing them I felt cheated, the sound coming out from the earpieces was really tinny and a tad metallic, perhaps I didn't break them in but the small drive and lack of range was abysmal.
  • Pros: Not very expensive, an improvement from default earphones
  • Cons: Tinny Sound, Cable Noise, Overbearing Metallic Tinge

  • Summary: So, the other reviews are fairly accurate.  I bought (two pairs of them!) a while back and I thought they were good, Senheisser brand made me feel smart.  If only I had come here first (or known about head-fi) I could have made a better decision.  At $40 they're not worth it at all.
  • Pros: Bloated Bass (is it a pro?)
  • Cons: Bloated Bass

  • Summary: These IEM's are very comfortable so they can be worn while lying down with no discomfort.   The bass is the best part of the CX300's, while the mids are average and the highs are lacking.
  • Pros: Very comfortable with good amounts of bass.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: The sennheiser cx300 was my first headphone of Sennheiser and my first earbud/headphone above 30 Dollars. The construction of the earbud itself is very great and the design too, small, classic, lightweight. The cable is pretty flimsy in the jack i had 2 pair of cx300, and both goes this way.
  • Pros: Loud, pretty easy to drive, Out of this world Bass, Comfy
  • Cons: Too much Bass, Sibilant/Harsh treble, Flimsy

  • Summary: Bought these as a cheap iem to use while my customs are being fixed, they sound pretty good for the price, isolate well enough to be bearable on the train, and weren't too expensive. My problems with them come from the entire design of both the iem's and the product as a whole.
  • Pros: sound is decent
  • Cons: packaging, cord, 3.5mm jack, carry pouch,

  • Summary: For a price this earphone has, it sounds great. A good bass response for something this small, and superb isolation from outside noise. Without music on, you can't barely hear anything else, as it doubles up as earplugs.
  • Pros: Great isolation, good audio quality
  • Cons: Wire design, pricey

  • Summary: I should disclose that I purchased these headphones for $15, and for that price I recommend that anyone snatch them up as a back up, or workout phones. However, not sure that I would purchase them for $60 or even $40.
  • Pros: Comfort, bass
  • Cons: Poor mids, sometimes too much bass, crackle

  • Summary: Like many other people, I got my cx300's as they were widely available on the high street with not much competition at the time. They are mostly known for their bass which is very abundant. The problem with that much emphasis on bass is the rest of the range suffers.
  • Pros: Comfort,
  • Cons: Outdated Sound, Microphonics,

  • Summary: Well worthwhile upgrade and not too expensive. Emphasized lower end. My only complaint after using these for the gym for over a year now is that the cord length is different from the split to the buds.(one more than twice as long as the other)
  • Pros: emphasized lower end for the gym/comfy
  • Cons: uneven cord length from split
