Great Sound

Jason M., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Pros: Wonderful sound, very rich with a great range. Must know your earbud 101 however. Have a tight fit in your ear and you will definitely get that rich bass. These in ear headphones are made to run around the back of the neck, which IMHO are much more comfortable to wear. For the price, you CAN NOT find a better in ear head set. Period!
  • Cons: For the price there really is no Cons.

Great for the money

Mark H., Newegg
24 January 2013
  • Pros: Clear sounds
  • Cons: They aren't top of the line. I thought of not docking any eggs since they are so good for the money, but I will since they aren't top of the line. Construction feels better than most in this price range, but feel cheaper than more expensive products, which is expected.

Great for the price...

Muhammad S., Newegg

  • Pros: Sounds great.
  • Cons: Asymmetrical cord length. I think the cord length thing people are critcizing - that these are designed so that the cord for the right bud could be placed behind your neck. I'd prefer them at equal length, but it doesn't really create any kind of annoyance to me. Not a significant con to me personally.

shocking :)

Steven S., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Pros: Very good sound quality. Nice lows and clear highs.
  • Cons: Sound distortion comes when anything hits or rubs the cable, moving around while listening is not something you want to be doing. I also found when listening through my thinkpad laptop that if I moved too much I would also get a nice static shock to the ear through the ear buds, not fun.

good sound

Anonymous, Newegg
16 December 2012
  • Summary: - rubber coated leads are thin, stiff, feel "cheap"
  • Pros: good price, comfortable fit, good sound.
  • Cons: - odd, asymetric leads on ear buds require getting accustomed to. More strain is placed on "L" earbud wire. But, I can quickly tell which earbud is "L"...

Great earbuds

Qui T., Newegg
3 December 2012
  • Pros: I've owned two other Sennheiser models (CX 200 and 475), and I like the 301s the best. I am impressed with the power and sound quality of these earbuds, especially for $30. I've only owned it for a couple days, so I can't comment on durability, but hopefully they last longer than my 475s (fell apart in a couple months).
  • Cons: More of an annoyance than a con, but they have asymmetrical cords.

Small Earphones, Amazing Sound! Pure Sennheiser Quality!

Sean C., Newegg
19 November 2012
  • Pros: Another affordable yet amazing headset by a maker that I highly regard as one of the best in its business. I had a pair of over the ear headset by Sennheiser nearly 7 years ago, and since then, had gone through many brands of headsets, mainly earphones since it's simpler to carry around and more comfortable. I've tried various brands such as Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Skull Candy, Beats, Altec Lansing, Bose, even one of the most coveted earbuds, Ultimate Ear Triple Fi 10. ...
  • Cons: No Cons! Really. Only one thing I'd prefer to have is a symmetrical length of cable for both earbuds. The left side is slightly shorter than the right, probably as a quick indicator of which side is the right, but mainly because I think it's suppose to go behind your neck. Overall length of cable is long enough to not cause an issue.

Seinnheiser Quality

Brian N., Newegg
5 November 2012
  • Pros: Asymmetric cable. This wasn't listed on the Newegg site but I'm very glad to see that it is a behind the neck style asymmetric cable. These are crisp sounding Sennheiser quality earbuds.
  • Cons: The 3.5mm 90 degree jack is very large. Not a con for everybody and it appears to be quite sturdy but it's much larger than most other headphones'.
