I'll second the recommendation for these 'phones - excellent and makes such a difference commuting as being in-ear you can turn down the volume on your MP3 player and still hear crystal clear sound without the noise of the tube / train intruding.

A few things worth noting though:

1) You need to get a good fit in the ear to get a rich base sound, but when you do you'll be amazed at the punch such little earphones can produce. A little practice and you'll get it.
2) Being in-ear, sound from your head (swallowing, snorting etc.) is magnified 10 fold - a bit like when diving or descending in a plane before your ears have "popped".
3) When walking (particularly in the wind) the cords pick up noises such as the wind, rustle of clothes and conduct them in to the ear. Bit disconcerting for the first couple of weeks until your "brain" gets used to them and ignores it.

On the whole can highly recommend them, and also agree they are the best headphones I've had, and coped with 4 months of daily abuse so are quite robust (Sony's tended to last a month with me!).

So not that good for the snorters among us, I wonder if you can get snort proof headphones? :)

I got used to hearing myself, snorts and all. Drowns out a lot of the outside noise and keeps your music IN too, so you can hear it clearly at low or high volumes without disturbing people!

I just received my £17.99 CX300's from Play.com today.

I bought them from Play.com having bought another (brand new) pair on ebay last week. The pair from ebay turned out to be fake. They looked fine (I wasn't an expert on CX300 headphones at that point) but sounded terrible.

The (real) ones I got from Play.com sound great.

Things to look out for (in my experience):

1. As far as I can tell, Sennheiser only sell CX300 earphones in a retail plastic display pack - not a sealed plastic envelope.

2. Sennheiser give the lengths of each of the earphone leads on their website. The length of the fake ones differ.

3. The plastic replacable bits that go in your ear feel like they are made out of the sort of plastic that covers those packs of cheese slices down Tescos. The real one feels slightly more soft/gel like.

It's OK, I got my money back.

Yes I feared this would happen to me with my ebay purchase...I bought from a Hong Kong trader but the supplied pack was kosher and the phones genuine...a bargain at £14 inc P&P.

Another happy cx300 user here, really pleased with em. Mine were retail packed, £17.99 del. I chose the ebay seller over play.com as they came next day delivery, play tends to take a few days for me and I'm impatient!

ADMIN EDIT: Took out eBay seller

They could be OEM headphone and may not be fake?

Trust me - they were fake.

What I didn't say was that the seller gave me my money back and didn't want the goods returned - so I have the luxury of being able to compare the ebay and Play.com ones side by side. The seller was a top chap and had sourced them from what he presumed was the correct channel - and so was also ripped off.

Unless anyone can tell me otherwise, wisdom out on the net is that Sennheiser don't sell CX300's in OEM packaging.

The ebay CX300's were visually a very good fake. The leads were the same sort of soft feel - but slightly thicker. They had a right angled connector but what gave it away was the silver ring between the phone body and the ear canal insert. This ring has an indentation in it which is not symetric - so that it appears that there are two silver bands - one wider than the other. On the genuine CX300, the wider band is next to the ear canal insert, on the fake CX300's that I had, it was the other way round.

Thanks for the good advice creamola..I have just checked my ebay purchase and they are genuine.

I take it the "fake" CX300s sounded crap in comparison to the genuine article.
#17
if you don't want to wait for delivery, you could also print out the play.com price and pop down to your nearest richer sounds, they price matched it for me on the spot which was good because i was going on hol that day!! probably be a good idea to ring in to check stock beforehand though as they only had a few left

Yes - they most certainly did - which is why I immediately smelled a rat.
