are they in ear?

I'm sure they are not but some places list them as in-ear - can someone just confirm please.
#2
Yeah they are.

Very good. Paid £25 for mine ages ago. Do take a while to get used to as the piece above the earphone can hurt.

actually got some quite bad reviews, would rather get the 90 vc or stick to my cx300's.
#4
i'd pay 3 or 4 quid extra for the cx300s, the mx range ain't that good tbh.
#5
Amazon had the cx300 in black or white the other day for £7.50 but they have gone up to around £13 asneed a comfy pair of earphones as my ipod ones are getting on my nerves when using for long periods of times

Whats the purpose of the piece above the earphones?? Having only tried my 'in ear' earphones around a year ago, I would never go for anything else unless its free. Am I the only one whose 'normal earphones' fall out of their ears? :oops:

Hot, heat & rep added. Gone for these, I need a new pair as mine have gone missing. Contrary to the above I have found some very good reviews and all at the rrp of around £35-£40 so worth a shot at just under a tenner! :thumbsup:
#9

thanks
#10

I had these and they were awful. In reference to the above, the 3G iPhone had a flush socket with the chassis - or are you working on iPhone 2G? In which case they won't fit.
#15
seems like a great deal looking at the reviews :) great find, thanks alot, nice one :):thumbsup:
#16
does anyone know if these headphones are better than the nokia n95 8gb ones?
#17
Fahim,

These headphones aren't as good as the CX300's, and the CX300's are INFINATLY better than the default Nokia N95 8GBs. I'm currenlty using my CX300s with my N95 and they're amazing, best audio I've ever heard. Make sure when you plug them into the N95 you select 'Music Stand' and not 'Head Phones' as the headphones option refers to the hands-free 'headphones' you get as standard in the N95 box. Music stand will use the headphones properly.
#18
these MX90 are average, your better off spending slighty more to get the CX300's. The sound quality is 10x better.
#19
found some opinions on this thread here for anyone interested:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/senn-mx90vc-first-impression-afterburner-195209/?highlight=mx90vc

I useful thing to consider when comparing to the likes of CX300 / EP630 etc, these MX90VC's are buds, not in ears like the ones i just mentioned so some people may have a preference.
#20
HowAboutNo
CX300 are £8 on the flea...... these look pants


They are Fakes, trust me.
banned#21
i got the skull candy smokin buds and they are great 12.99 from play great for cuttin out background noise but they can be a little uncomforable if your ears are small like mines but the range and quality out of them id pay the extra 3 quid

id also second the fact that anything is better than my n95 ones i think two cups ands a piece of string isnt far off lol
#22
Dont forget the white sony ones for sale from play.com... at about £15, these are great sounding earphones.
#23
thanks for answering... how much can you buy the cx300? and do you know the place where you can get the cheapest one?
Regards, Fahim

This deal is still valid if anyones interested.

Sennheiser MX90 VC

The MX90 VC is another of Sennheiser's new pairs of earbuds. Sporting their innovative winged design, they hold firmly in your ears and provide audio that is well above the quality of a typical earbud. While we still recommend over the ear models for true high quality listening, the MX90 won't disappoint the average listener.

As with the MX55 which we looked at recently, the MX90s are designed with a special wing that extends from the tip of the earbud. This wing is covered with a rubber seal, and slips comfortably into one of the top grooves of your ear. Sennheiser's intent here was to lock the earbuds in place, as a typical earbud design doesn't sit firmly in your ear. The end result is a pair of headphones that are great for fast paced activities like jogging or cycling.

The design is reasonably comfortable, although it takes a little getting used to. After an hour we barely noticed the wings were there. The buds themselves are comfortable as well, with interchangeable pads of different sizes and textures, allowing you to achieve the best fit for you. As usual, Sennheiser do not disappoint with regards to sound quality either. While we still feel an over the ear model like the Koss KSC-75 or Sennheiser's own PX 100 is a better choice if the quality of the audio is your top priority, the size, convenience and price of earbuds often make them an attractive option.

The MX90s provide good, balanced sound. We didn't find any one element overpowering, although bass was a little lacking; a common failing of most earbuds. It didn't have the power or extension we are used to.

The mid-range was quite well represented, with strong detail and separation and a fairly lively presentation. Sennheiser models are known for their laidback presentation so this was a bit of a surprise, but a welcome one. There was a lovely clarity to complex instrumental music like jazz or classical which you were rarely hear in other models in this price range.

Our only other complaint was with the highs, which verged on being a little tinny at times. This was probably at least partially due to the low levels of bass making the other elements more prominent.

Overall we were impressed with the sound quality of the MX90s. They were on par with other Sennheiser earbuds, such as the MX55, and they give most regular over the ear models a big run for their money. The lack of bass makes them a little less suited to styles like hip hop or dance, but even these types of music sound quite good.

Aside from the winged design, the other thing Sennheiser is implementing on their new earbuds is interchangeable face plates. Like mobile phones and most other electronics, they are becoming a fashion item, and so Sennheiser are allowing you to customise your earbuds with multiple cases. To be honest we don't really see the point, as they're tiny and will mostly be hidden from view anyway, but it is a nice touch and they do look pretty stylish.
