Great sound quality

Matthew H., Newegg
19 August 2010
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality and comfortable fit. Like all sennheiser audio products, their mids/highs are excellent and the bass isn't overwhelming.
  • Cons: The cord could be a little longer if you intend on running with your mp3 player in your pocket instead of in an arm band.

  • Pros: they lasted @ 12 monts of daily use before the l shaped connector started failing. asking sennheiser if they will replace them. otherwise buying another pair - jr.com has them for $16 they are that good i'll keep buying even if they break.
  • Cons: short cord is lame

Decent when on sale

Brett S., Newegg
15 October 2009
  • Summary: I wouldn't pay $40 for them, let alone $80. But if you can get 'em while they're on sale for $20ish, do it. They kill others at this price (see: skullcandy, iBuds, etc). I give them a 4, because I've definitely heard better headphones.
  • Pros: They're quite decent at noise cancellation. Walking around downtown with them is almost dangerous! If you can get them to fit right, they have good bass (for the price) mids are slightly recessed. Not much to say about the highs.
  • Cons: You can hear if the cord is bumped. But it's not as loud and crazy as everyone makes it seem. It's bearable. And if you have a little clip thing or some tape, you can pretty much get rid of all of the noise.

Great compromise for Canal-phones

Andrew M., Newegg
5 October 2009
  • Summary: Overall, considering the price, these are an amazing steal. For everyday use, the aforementioned rubbing is really a non-issue, and when sitting at one's desk, its even less so. The most important function for me is the ability to not only block out noise, but do it without having to blow out my ear...
  • Pros: After reading about the clarity of canal headphones, and being a daily-subway rider in NYC, I was hell bent on finding something that would work for me. Being worried about full canal headphones possibly damaging my ears, I decided to go for these after reading that they're great introductory pai...
  • Cons: Although the wiring is intact, it doesn't mean its great. The wiring is made of textured rubber, which means that unlike most ear buds, they will catch on *everything*, from your hand to a newspaper. I have, more than once, ripped them straight out of my ear because they caught slightly on my upp...

User Review

Kenneth P., Newegg
26 September 2009
  • Pros: Sounds good for gym. Ive had good luck with Seinnheiser in the past
  • Cons: I play my MP3 in my pocket and the heaphone cord seems a bit too short. It could use another 3-4 inches.

cx300b's are ok

ryan W., Newegg
25 September 2009
  • Summary: if the small covers dont fit the best you can steal the small ones off skullcandy buds which are a tad larger and will hold the buds in place better. to address what someone rating these lower said about the unequal cord length, they are made that way to wrap one around your neck.
  • Pros: great sound quality. i would reccomend for computer use or just mp3/movie use if your sitting down. not for if your moving around. if your jogging or working out, go to ross and get a 8 dollar pair of skullcandys, they stay in place and unless your absolutely an audiophlie you wont be able to rea...
  • Cons: not as much bass as everyone says, skull candys have more, but no real quality, but i suppose you can just eq it up. also the volme is not all that high, but you just turn it on up. they have iffy build quality, the wires are quite thin, however when you find them extra cheep, like 14-18 bucks, j...

great bulbs

Louis P., Newegg
19 August 2009
  • Pros: these bulbs sound great i hear more of my music and less back ground noise. once you fit the correct size rubber end pieces the bass really comes out.
  • Cons: the rubber cord does give off a rubbing noise when jogging with and volume is at a low setting. hey,but for 18 bucks i,m not going to send them back.

Excellent Earphones/Cans

Jonathan F., Newegg
12 August 2009
  • Summary: My set of cans don't exhibit any of cons posted here, I have no static with the cable, they fit my ears perfectly with the normal ear adapters. Excellent sound quality that gives the higher priced cans a big run for their money. Love the sound quality and very comfortable!
  • Pros: Wow! Impressed!! Excellent sound quality, nice bass (not too much), good Mids and treble is perfect for me. I have a set of Shure E2C's and these guys give them a BIG run for the money, I am actually using these Senns more than the Shures.
  • Cons: The wire could be thicker, but come on , at this price these things are awesome. Would be nice to have a pouch with it, but I just used one I had.

Very nice, cheap price

Ken K., Newegg
4 August 2009
  • Summary: These compare favorably with Shure E2c and Sennheiser HD280 over-ear 'phones, both of which cost upwards of $100. Far better than the plastic junk supplied with any MP3 player (yeah you, Apple!).
  • Pros: • Quite accurate for the cost, decent bass, even mids, clear treble with no over-emphasis in any frequency range. • very good noise isolation; great for travel IF you fit them properly. • small and lightweight; fits in your pocket and ready to go. • You CAN almost sleep with them in, they're that...
  • Cons: • J-wire design pulls out easily, wire material is sticky rather than smooth so it grabs onto other surfaces. • maybe TOO sensitive; pretty loud with my iPod Touch even on low volume settings. I notice this is the only headset I have ever connected to my iPod that has obvious background hiss when...

Sennheiser CX300 Earbuds

sancho1582, Rate it all!
3 October 2008
  • Summary: First off, the only reason I rated 4 instead of 5 stars is because I had switch out the Sennheiser bud tips for my old Sony MDR-EX71s. The Sennheiser tips created an uncomfortable suction inside my ear canal. Sound is awesome. I'd equate the bass to having a subwoofer in your mouth..
