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: 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.
Summary: These earphones, now the de facto first upgrade for an iPod, are alright if not unexciting. Compared to the stock iPod buds they're like hearing music for the first time again, but there are many other options which sound as good if not better. For my money, I would and do recommend Sony.
Summary: I'm genuinely shocked that folks are unimpressed with these buds. They've served me very well for a looooong time. Yes, they handle bass veery well, but I never found that was at the expense of treble, not at the start (are now, since 4 years of earwax... yeh, you knowaddamean).
Pros: Comfortable, decent sound, actually fit in my malshapen ears, pretty good drowning-out-of-world, longevity, cheap
Conclusion: Though the CX300 can’t compete with other canalphones we have reviewed, clocking in at half the price, and with unmatched comfort, the CX300 comes out on top for value. The unique hybrid design of being part canalphone, part ear bud will appeal to those who find traditional canalphones...
Pros: Custom sleeves for proper fitting; good sound quality
