Summary: I didn't actually own these, however I did have a pair of Creative earbuds (EP-630 -- google it) which look exactly like these, right down to the cord, the plug, the ring and it's dull finish. I think these are generic headphones or rebranded by sennheiser.
Pros: they get pretty loud without distortion. sound is acceptable and more comfortable than the standard iPod earphones. very tight seal with ear canal -- so great for listening in loud environments, airplanes etc. Good value for $20-$30.
Cons: a little bass heavy, but i kinda prefer it or at least got used to it -- it's better than the alternative. i wouldn't call the sound balanced. Cord is pretty short and gets tangled easy. it's made out of a rubbery material and is more difficult than most to untangle, it clings to clothing which c...
Conclusion: Iwas disappointed after my first day. the rubber tips are so thin and flexible it's hard to get them into your ears.

The Sound Quality of Massive Over the Ears Headphones in Earbuds!
19 October 2009
Summary: These are by far the best earbud headphones I've used. They've actually increased the amount of work I get done. Buy them.
Pros: Wonderful sound quality! Excellent bass! Distinct highs and mids. Cancels all outside noise. Stays in ears easily. Cord isn't too long and doesn't catch on my bicycle and get shredded like several of my older pairs, but not too short either, no pulling on my ears.
Summary: I misplaced my first set of CX300's and bought the CX400's to replace them. But the cord on those is a strange two-piece thing, so I donated those to my wife when I found the CX300's were on close out.
Pros: Good sound, sound isolating, and comfortable.
