    This is the best earphones I have tried. Ever. I have had the Sony Xbass'; they were great, but some songs distort the bass too much, and it recently was retired because there were problems with the wiring; only one earphone is working, bummer.

    I have the Sennheiser's for about 3 weeks now. They are compact, great sound out of the box! Bass is never overwhelming, and just overall crisp great sound. Audiophiles on a budget would LOVE these!

    Only thing is that it can be hard to get it in the ear canal just right; to block outside noise and give the best sound experience. Aside from that, it's just awesome. Plus it's on sale here in BnH when I got it, I never had any second thoughts!

    Before buy the cx 300 I use the cx 200 of Sennheiser. I was very happy with the 200, but after two years of use the plug fix off and stop to working. So, I decided to buy another one (this time a better one). For the price (almost twice of cx 200) I expect something better. Sincerely I don't notice any kind of positive changes. Maybe the sound it's a little bit better, but it's almost the same. And a small thing that I don't like is the difference between the two sides of the chord.

    And again the assistance of Sennheiser in Brazil is very bad.

      I use these both to listen to music on my mobile devices as well as in ears monitors for the live band setting. These have great bass response, and maintain good clarity at medium to medium loud volumes. They do start breaking up at very loud volumes as do all single driver in ears.

      Comments about Sennheiser CX 300-II Portable Stereo In-Ear Headphones (Precision Black):

      you're essentially getting what you pay for here. These are certainly better than the "white ear buds", but the "bass-driven sound" comes with a mid-range boost that sucks some of the warmth out of the music. i would prefer a more balanced soundThat being said, Sennheiser is still my prefered brand of headphones, and the more you pay, the better the product.

        I'm a big fan of these headphones. This is my third or fourth pair, not because they aren't durable, but because I use them so much, and tend to not be too careful with them. Great sound for the price, and I find them incredibly comfortable. I also like the asymmetrical cord length way more then the more common y-style

            Obviously for $[$], you won't be getting the best headphones, but these are worth the money. Heavy on the bass, but still plenty good for casual use. No studio monitors here!

                    Comments about Sennheiser CX 300-II Portable Stereo In-Ear Headphones (Precision Black):

                    After five years of daily use, my original CX300 headphones finally died. I always loved the bass kick that they've been known for and with heavy heart, went on my quest to find a replacement. Fortunately for me, I found that they've released this CX300-II model. I know that sometimes vendors skimp on their products as newer models come around, but this was not the case with this product. They sound just as good as the original if not better. The only difference I see between the CX300-II and the CX300 is a slight indentation on the back of each earpiece which makes it slightly easier to put pressure on them to make them seal in your ear - a nice addition.

                    Although they don't have noise cancellation, I frequently use them at my computer while I work to help minimize ambient noise and conversations. They are perfect for this task.

                    The headphones also come with a new black pouch which is extremely convenient and helps keep them clean and dust out -- much better than carrying them in a pocket or purse.

                    The cord is sturdy and as others have noted, one side of the cord that leads up to the headphones is slightly longer than the other, but I actually like this feature instead of having extra cord out there.

                    Great product Sennheiser!

                      I was looking for inexpensive headphones that have great sound and are comfortable to wear. I have found them. The price was very reasonable, I have Sennheiser headphones for home use, (the earmuff style), and continue to be impressed by the products they offer.
                      I use them at my desk to listen to Sirius Radio while I work. They also cancel the noise in the office VERY well allowing me to virtually ignore my coworkers!
                      Thanks for a great product, lightening fast delivery, and a great price!

                      I use these at the gym. I like the sound/isolation, and the buds stay put in my ear (which is great, because a lot of buds don't stay in, and I don't like over-ear or the ones that wrap around the ear).

                      I'm still on the fence about the asymmetric cables, mostly just because it makes it more difficult to wrap up between uses.

                      If you don't secure the cables during exercise, the sound from the cable bouncing against things reverberates in your ear.

                        I use earphones on an indoor bike for several hours per week all winter. I replaced a cheap pair of earbuds, and these do sound much better. Music sounds good, and I can hear news shows clearly over the sound of the trainer.

                        I'm not a fan of "bass driven" sound, however. These seem to add an unnecessary booming sound to everything. The asymmetrical wires are not for me, but I understand that it's a desireable feature for others.

                          Good sound. Comfortable. Like the long cord. So comfortable, can even play waterfalls and rain forests with my head sideways on a pillow to sleep.

                            Comments about Sennheiser CX 300-II Portable Stereo In-Ear Headphones (Precision Black):

                            Sennheiser had been a top name in the production of headphones for a long time. My first pair of headphones that they made delivered on a penultimate scale that saw them go and produce until they literally fell apart (think 20 years). These In-Ear type buds produce GIANT sound on my portable MP3 player that is - UNSURPASSED by any other product that I have tried. I actually save money by paying more for a product that doesn't fall apart after a few months. Sennheiser always delivers and I am a multiple repeat customer that will always give them my business for a genuine quality product.

                              Use this headphones on my laptop, tablet, and on my Galaxy Y smartphones and can't praise it enough on the sound reproduction.For those reporting trouble with the bass on theirs, you may actually have a defective unit, or check your media player sound/equalizer settings. Ones I got (actually bought it at the Dubai airport) are excellent and I'm not even using the bass boost on the media player. Best $ I've spent on headphones.

                                I chose these phones having read a consumer review that rated them highly.
                                I use them primarily when walking and exercising with my iPod.
                                I previously bought an over-ear pair, but they didn't fit well and the sound was poor. These Sennheisers fit perfectly, have terrific sound, and are light and comfortable.
                                My only (minor) complaint is that they make the leads too long. How many buyers are +7' tall? I have permanently gathered the cable so it no longer dangles below my waist.
                                Overall, a great buy and great sound.

                                    These are great in-ear headphones. I prefer not to be totally closed off to outside noise and prefer those that keep me in touch with the outside world.

                                    They are great for work, etc since they are not conspicuos and are small enough to put in purse or pocket. Sennheiser has quality products for a good price.

                                    Unless the product was defective, the bass level is almost inexistent.
                                    I returned it. I bought a sony for half the price and much better sound.
