Perfect for the music-discerning commuter on a budget
9 September 2011
Excerpt: These headphones are great. I've bought many different in-ear headphones in my time and these are the best for me. Sound Quality: Very very good considering these are not high-end BOSE headphones for example. The in-ear function allows for good bass reflex, and this is balanced by a crisp top-end and warm mid-section. Functionality: This is where these headphones really shine, especially if you plan to travel with them alot.
Summary: This is my third pair of Sennheiser CX 400 II ear phones, and this is the third time to loose sound in the left earpiece after only a few months of non-heavy use. It seems, reading other reviews, that this is a common problem. Shame, because the sounds is generally excellent with a realtively wide dynamic range.
Excerpt: I had previously owned a pair of Sennheiser CX-300 earbuds until I lent them to a friend who managed to mislay them. Fortunately he replaced them with the fabulous CX-400's. As with the usual Sennheiser offerings, they come with several different detachable earbuds to ensure the correct fit in your ear. It's worth taking a minute or two at this point to ensure you get the right size as it means the difference between hearing a song and 'feeling' a song.
Summary: I used to think that Apple earphones were good... that was before I decided to try a pair of Sennheisers. It would take a truly ASTOUNDING alternative for me to buy another brand of earphones in this price range. This is my first set of CX400s, having previously owned a few sets of CX300s and a set of CX500s. I'm still burning this set in, but already I can tell that they're the best of the three models I've owned.

Excerpt: I love music and would be lost without my ipod , i listen to it everywhere at the gym , on a train or a plane , even just to walk to the shops to buy a pint of milk . So after my old pair of jvc headphones gave up the ghost i decided i was going to try out the designer audio brand sennheiser and the CX 400-II PRECISION headphones stood out mostly due to the wide choice of different in ear buds , i have awkward ears and often the buds provided with the earphones dont fit...
Pros: great sound quality
Cons: 2 pairs within a month and both were faulty , fragile
Summary: Very good earphones and sound quality. I just have one disadvantage: Because the earphones go IN the ear when the cable hits or collides with your body, sometimes noise (like bass hits) are a bit annoying. I recommend them 90%!
Sennheiser CX 400 II Precision Noise Isolating Ear-canal Phones with Integrated Volume Control - Black
1 February 2011
Summary: I purchased the Sennheiser ear phones to replace the JVC earphones that I had for almost 2 years. At the moment amazon are selling them just below £20 including delivery, which is not too bad, however the build quality of this product is not worth more than £5... The sound quality is great, crystal clear, however the volume control is already falling apart, and the left ear phone is a bit flimsy... I can not believe this ear phones were originally sold at £60...
Good at a bargain price, but better earphones out there...

Summary: Firstly I'll start with a warning. There are literally thousands of fake versions of this product on the Internet and sometimes when something looks to good to be true, the odds are it probably is. With that thought in mind, I felt I had taken a gamble in buying these In-Ear's (IE's) at the bargain price of [...] when the stated RRP was [...], so I wasn't expecting big things when the parcel arrived from Amazon.
Summary: These were my first time buying a Sennhieser product and I was very impressed. After buying them I was told about many Sennhieser headphones being fakes but I bought them off amazon from a 3rd party seller full filed by amazon. On arrival I was skeptical not knowing wether they were real or fake as they sounded different to my previous Sony ones. I soon learnt they were real and once getting used to them they're awesome.
Summary: The sound quality out of these earphones is fantastic. I was absolutely blown away. They completely cut out all the background noise and it literally feels like your head is being filled with music. With sound quality that I have found way superior to the Bose earphones I use, which cost much more, I can't help but think that the technology Sennheiser use is pretty spectacular. But.
