These great in-ear headphones from Sennheiser are the perfect audio accessory for a whole range of portable players, from iPods to Mp3 players, portable DVD and games systems. They offer incredible sound, excellent wearing comfort and cutting edge design
The CX300s are the first consumer ear-canal headphones that Sennheiser has ever produced. They employ an innovative, miniaturized Sennheiser driver that has been specially designed to deliver super smooth, acoustically correct in-ear operation. This driver enables the CX300s to provide an extended 18Hz-21kHz response, high on detail but also strong and defined in the low frequencies. If youve ever listened to one of your favourite tunes on your iPod and thought hey, where did the bass go, these in-ear phones could be just what you need.
One of the other common gripes with in-ear headphones is how uncomfortable they can be. This is an area in which Sennheiser has obviously taken great care. For a start, the CX 300 comes with three different sized ear adapters, so you can find the one that fits best for you (no more of this one size fits all fantasy). Each of these ear pieces is made of ultra soft, silcone rubber to ensure long term wearing comfort.
The excellent design continues with the CX 300s special in-ear seal. This serves two important functions: to minimise ambient noise from your surrounding environment and to maximize the depth and presence of the bass. As youd expect from a Sennheiser headphone set, it does both very well. If you enjoy escaping into the world of your favourite music while youre on the move, the CX 300s create a listening experience that will truly take you there.
This great headphone set also includes a light, but strong asymmetrical cable and a handy set of plug adapters. For added peace of mind it comes with a two-year comprehensive warranty from Sennheiser.
Best headphones I have ever owned

I have been though many headphones in my day usually having to replace every 6 months. When i purchased these headphones they lasted me over 2 years. Sounded the best out of all the ones iv tried. Strongly recommended. The only con i can find is i wish they had even headphone lengths.. i don't like wrapping one around me neck... although its definitely worth dealing with that.
Good Headphones, great Bass

These in-ear phones sound great and are fir my ears very well with the fitted medium sized adapters. They also supply a pair of small & a pair of large adapters - it's just a pity that there is only one pair of each size - the rubber is very thin and may wear quickly. I like the odd length left & right cords - this allows you to easily string the cord around the back of your neck which prevents them dropping to the ground when you remove the buds. I just wish the cable was a little thicker.
Love these things!

Okay, everyone's raved about the sound quality of these things, and, I'll join in the chorus. I ride a train every day to and from work, and I'm astounded how little volume it takes to override the mundane ramblings of my fellow passengers. I used to bring along my Sony MDR7506's that I use at work ... and while these Sennheiser's aren't QUITE that good, and I'd never use them for recording ... for daily listening, they're far more comfortable and easier to haul around, and garner far less odd looks from people. Speaking of hauling them around - I've found that using an old Altoids or similar tin (rinsed and dried thoroughly, obviously) is a nice substitute for a proper case; You just have to be careful wrapping the cable up, but, they do fit in there quite nicely. Highly recommended ... I've given them as gifts to a few people - and they've all raved about them, and how far superior they are to the ""stock"" iPod headphones. But you do have to treat them with a little care and TLC ... they're not $10 pieces of junk you get at a record shop, for sure!
Good sound if you get the fit right

Having just ditched my Sony MDR-EX71SL Fontopia Headphones after the left speaker kept going dead, I basically just wanted a different brand of the same sort of headphones. Whilst at first I found these headphones good, they didn't seem to match the sounds and comfort of the Sony ones. The truth is, they are just as good if not better if you just ensure your buds are the right size and you insert them correctly. I now highly recommend these headphones.

I bought these to replace my Koss 'plug' earphones. Prior to the Koss I had some Sony inner ear earpoones which cost me over $100 at the time. These Sennheisers blew me away. The bass is clean and tight and brilliant mid and high end definition. Miles ahead of the Koss I've just been using. I've had these for 3 weeks and at the end of the first week put them through a wash/dry cycle in a jacket pocket (along with my Zen). Both actually survived although the Zen took a couple of days to dry out, but if the Sennheisers didn't I would have bought another pair straight away with no hesitation 'cause I reckon they are brilliant.
