Here's the CX300 II from Play, I know their maybe slightly cheaper deals elsewhere, but I think its worth paying that extra pound for a peace of mind :)

I AGREE with you all the way on this one while they can be had for £1 cheaper i did weeks ago pay play.com the extra £1 so i know for sure that they are going to be legit and not fake, once arrived i could easily tell by the sound quality that they were genuine and then ordered another pair for the future for backups as they are so amazing,and yes i do mean amazing when listening to a lossless format on my ipod classic.:thumbsup:

So are Amazon in the business of putting out fakes now?

I bought some of these, in that new cardboard packaging last month from there, around the £13-14 mark IIRC, and to be perfectly honest they do not sound amazing AT ALL.

Nasally, lacking in both real bass extension and clean treble.

Grado SR80s -- admittedly more expensive -- with a little valve headamp I built myself connected to a good CD player the Grados absolutely blow these things away.

At £15, OK I guess. At £40, complete rip-off. I would expect the differences to be marginal at that price, not night and day.

I know exactly where your coming from, brought a pair also from amazon to replace some EP-630, in hindsight i should of just brought another pair of creatives.

And lol @ the Grado setup, nice as it is, can't really see myself walking down the street with Little Dot I+ in my pocket, nuforce mobile maybe....but i'm happy with my Sennheiser IE8's.

Either fakes your MP3 player or your codecs are rubbish because when using these genuine ones with decent codecs being used are quality, i own and have owned many an expensive pair of ear/head phones so i have aot to relate it to.

Hmmm, Cyrus dAD3Q CD player hardly falls into the poor "MP3" player or codecs lol. The setup I use to really put a set of cans through their paces would put even the best MP3 unit to shame.

And on my Sansa player with FiiO E5 headamp I only ever use FLAC. Again this setup is the best I have heard out of many (and certainly a long way ahead of an iPod). I have very exacting standards when it comes to this sort of stuff.

They are ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE NEAR the sound of a good quality pair of cans.

The only possibility from your list of things I have wrong is the chance that I have fakes. If that is the case, then Amazon UK (*not* one of their third parties, Amazon themselves) are selling counterfeit merchandise. I find this most unlikely.

People are seduced by these cans because they have a rich-sounding lower midrange (which they associate with "bass", proving they have no idea what bass actually is) and they are louder than the average. But they are *very* coloured. My experience with iPods is that they tend to be rather bass-light, and gritty at the treble end, so yes for an iPod I guess these could fill the sound out -- but that doesn't make them any good.

Kind of the reason I bought the 300s......

I guess I'm just going to have to nip down to the hifi shop and get the right set at some stage (and pay full-whack -- morally bad form to test items in a specialist then go online IMO).

Ridiculous comments context perceptive lacking nonsense, and by that i mean your basis for a reply is that you have tested them on high quality seperates/ headphone amp RIDICULOUS they are designed for portable music players what do you expect, like i said context perceptive lacking nonsense get real please.
#16
No, I have tested them on high-end and standard systems.

The FiiO E5 is only a 15 pound product for heaven's sake, and the Sansa was only 60.

For a sense of perspective, OK: they also sound sh!t on my old Creative, admittedly better than the ones that player came with but that ain't saying much.

Like what?, I'm genuinely interested to know. Thing is, majority of people who are buying this are properly upgrading from the crappy stock ibuds - in which case, anything sounds better.

Me and jasejames were merely trying to point out, relative to other IEM's in the same bracket, they are actually like poor in terms of SQ. EP-630's can be had for much less, and sound better.

FYI, i also own a sansa clip, and if you know anything about mp3's player - it's regarded one of the best in terms of it's headphone out (power to drive ever full-sized cans) and uncoloured signature.

So it's not down to some 'crappy' MP3 player, heck i doubt anybody with a 'crappy' mp3 player would even bother spending £15 on a pair of headphones.
