Got the normal CX 300s and they are fantastic (just lost one of the rubber earbuds after about two years though :( ). I can only imagine these are even better, so hot from me!

Rather use Amazon!!!

Bought a Router/Printer Server from 7dayshop. The product arrived in good time but its all in French (the writing on the box states FR). I emailed asking for a UK product and got a reply stating, send it back and we will exchange but I need to pay the postage!!! :x

Good price, I got mine for £14.99 from play.

Got to say I was disappointed with the sound, the mids are poor imho.

They come with a nice snapper case though.

You can also get the Sennheiser CX500 headphones for £15.99 @ play (ordered them yesterday)

got the black ones when they were on offer a few months ago, very good earphones!!

Have now bought the normal 300's for my teens, and still can't believe how good they are for the price - even before any special offers. Would highly recommend, as they are effective AND very comfortable.

Same here :) Great pair of cans, good step up from my Sony EX85's, I'd recommend them over the CX300's.

Great headphones - highly recommended. I can actually hear my music when I'm riding my motorbike on the motorway now! The only downside is they have to be positioned exactly right to work properly.

These 'phones are a HUKD fave. I love 'em!!

Guys I gotta say although the CX300's are good Creative Labs EP-630 are just as good and nearly half the price.....

I have both and they are both great!

Good earphones for the price, voted hot!

Whats the main difference between the 500 and the 300's?

The 500's have a better sound range, however these ear phones have noise cancellation which is essential on public transport.
Really don't know why people are comparing these 2 ear phones, different products doing different things.
#18
So get the 500's then mate?

they don't have noise cancellation (which usually requires a wee box in line with the wiring to do all the processing, and i think there has to be a small mic built into the headphones for it to work out what noise it should be cancelling).

These have noise isolation (as noted in the title) which isn't as good, and basically means because they fit so snugly in your ear it blocks out most ambient noise (like an earplug!). Having nearly been run over by the odd bus while wearing earphones of this style, it's safe to say they do a fair job of blocking out noise.

The CX500s are probably slightly better from a frequency range point of view etc, but having had the CX300s, the Creative EP-630s and just recently bought the CX500s, you won't notice too much difference between the 3 as long as you choose the rubber ear buds that fit your ears best. Most people don't encode their MP3s at a decent enough bitrate for it to matter too much. All 3 of the ones i've mentioned are much, MUCH better than the ones that come with an ipod.

The CX500s have an inline volume control, that's about the biggest advantage i've found with them, plus they have the same length cord going to each ear from the split, unlike the CX300s i had, with one short wire and then a longer wire going to the other earbud, meaning you had to put the wire behind your neck. Some people like that, others don't. The Creative EP-630s that someone mentioned have the symmetrical wires, and i think they are pretty much clones of the CX300 Mark I's (apart from the logo and the wire - something about the same factory making them in the Far East and Sennheiser not having an exclusive license on the design), but these are Mark II, they might be slightly better?

There is no inline box. There's a piece of plastic where the wire splits.

Both 300 and 500 are noise isolation earphones. Neither are noise cancellation earphones. Your advice above was wrong.

just lost one of the rubber earbuds after about two years though


I lost one of mine, but loads of people are selling packs of them on Amazon and eBay, so I bought a pack of 10.

agreed and you only get the bass benefit if you push them in so far they are tickling the back of your throat!
