When you had them in how would you describe the sound quality please ?

Also if you have them in listening to something on full volume can people around you also hear it like them poor excuses for headphones that apple have ? :)

Thanks James

IMO they sound great, better than the old sony in ear ones. And when you have them in nobody will hear the music and you wont hear ANYTHING around you.

Can be fatiguing (for me), however would reccomend them; I got these as whilst my Q-Jays (high end £130 ish) are being replaced and been very impressed. Bass is r.ery good in particular.

With regards to sound leak- it doesn't go deep into your ear and seal like a foam end would, but more than good enough. I listen at work and people around can't hear the music (what do you mean full volume though as thats just dumb and you will end up deaf)

Mine arrived in the post today, and I have to say I'm very impressed.

From the moment I laid eyes on the packaging I knew I was going to love these headphones and they haven't disappointed.

The sound quality on these is very good.

I've had mine a couple of months and the plastic bit which covers where the wires attach to the plug has come loose. This means that when I try and pull the headphones out of a socket it just slides the protection off, exposing the wires unless I squeeze it as I pull.

So, I'm not sure it'll last much longer... still good price though,
#12
I got these for the same price about a month ago.

Made £0.07 on QuidCo!!

They're pretty good. However, I don't agree with WhatHiFi's review of them.

They were £40 when they reviewed them, I'd expect a bit more for £40.

They're excellent value for money at £14, probably won't find better for the price.
#13
These are still in Tesco for £37 ish

Hi,

Does any1 know if there is a major difference between the CX300 & CX500 (apart from the volume control), I have been looking at these for ages but can't decide which one. Thx

What did you disagree with and what more would you want these phones to do?
I would find it very difficult to distinguish between many headphones in this price range.

Here's WhatHifi's comments:

An improvement over their already-excellent predecessors, these are the no-brainer upgrade for your portable player

For
Great clarity, detail and texture, comfortable

Against
Nothing of note

Bass delivery is rousing and full-bodied without ever intruding the midrange or treble – both of which enjoy terrific detail and texture.

Dynamics and rhythm are also great for the price, and there's more spaciousness to delivery than you'd expect from very affordable in-ears.

Add a snug fit that isolates outside noise while reducing sound leakage and you've got a package that's unbeatable at this money.

I ordered the sony active ones and they give me a headache after an hour or so of listening so these look like an ideal replacement! thank you!

I got a pair of these. They have a nice drisp mid range with a good solid bass sound. No distortion at high volume. This is the first pair of Senheiser ear phones I have owned. I've had about 6 pairs (various models) previously but these are the best I've had.

They are good at damping noise internaly and externaly.

They cost me 14.99 so heat from me :)
#18
Got mine last week and they are top class.Very impressed.
#19
Just ordered a pair. thanks!
#20
Look good. Any good for gym use?
suspended#21
mine arrived today from 7dayshop, very comfortable, they are nearly as good as foam earplugs at blocking out surrounding noise, hope i dont get run over walking to work listening to my ipod now :P

the sound quality sounded great, need to do a comparison to the stock ipod earphones first tho, their volume is much higher too which is good. The packaging was rather weird, hope i dont have to send them back at any point as it would be alot of messing to get them back in the packaging.

I have both but can't say I notice a difference in sound really. With the CX500s you get a tidy cable/holder, clip(so you can attach to a jacket while wearing), a larger variety of headphone sizes and a nice little pouch to hold them all in!

Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

I have used them once at the gym. They are very good at blocking out background noise and the sound quality is also very good.

The only problem is the noise made caused by cable rub does ruin the music a bit and is difficult to avoid whist at the gym.
#24
As has already been pointed out, these are extremely noise cancelling - this is good for me, but maybe not for everyone.

The bass is not as heavy as a pair of Sonys, it's just right and allows for a great mix of sounds. Highly recommended.

It has, cheers:)
#26
Interesting deal. Any idea on whether these are sturdier than Creative EP-630s?
#27
Been looking for a set of earphones for a while now so just ordered a pair of these. Just hope they live up to the billing. By the way this site costs me a fortune as I see that much good stuff to buy.:w00t:
#28
Nice, need another set for the wife so these will do nicely :)
#29
I find the sony's fit the ear better easier and the sound quality is similar.

Never heard of those before. Tweeter and woofer eh? I wonder how many components are on the crossover. :whistling:

I don't get along with inner ear designs, went for the B&O A8 and love 'em to death.

Top post, voted hot and ordered. Thanks

H + R thanks

Thanks, I needed some new earphones.

Ordered & Heat Added.

Sound = fantastic (compared to the apple standard ones)
Noise isolation is pretty good, but you need to get the right size ear plugs on (small, medium,large).

Build is pretty flimsy if you ask me and after just two days of sitting on the train listening to them they are cutting out in one ear (left).

I have asked play.com to replace them.

The packaging: ECO how? No need to use sixteen layers of cardboard at all and why did PLAY.COM need to put it in a box measuring 18 inches long, 4 inches thick and 10 inches wide (roughly).

Kind of ruins the idea of ECO right?

thank you....ordered....x

hi all,

Thanks for posting but is there any voucher valid for this headphone? I could not find one so the price is 14.99 quid, not 13.89, rite?
