If you're looking for a decent upgrade without spending piles of cash, you could get away with spending £30-50 on a pair that may suit you down to the proverbial ground. Sennheiser's sound-isolating CX 400 earphones are in such a bracket. At £39 they're by no means extortionately priced, but is it worth paying even a little more? We decided to find out.

Strengths
For less than the price of a single top title videogame, you're getting a complete package with the CX 400s. In the box is a range of differently-sized silicon tips (these are the passive sound-isolators), gold-plated connectors on both the 1m extension cable and the earphones themselves, a snazzy cable clip and a good-looking carry pouch. Few earphones in this price range come with this sort of accessory bundle.

But it's not just high-quality extras we're impressed with -- the lightweight and attractive earphone enclosures are comfortable and unintrusive, and of course the range of silicon tips provided let you pick the size most comfortable for you. This is important as well for bass performance, since the cosiest fit will enhance that deep bass and those pounding kick drums. Isolation will make a massive difference on the commute, too, with rumbles, whispers and sneezes deadened to almost inaudibility.

Agreed, too many fakes around and the difference in quality is incredible. Good deal if they were from amazon but wouldn't trust it otherwise

So where do you buy to make sure you dont get a fake? ..without paying silly money

I was toying with upgrading my tacky earphones the other day to Sennheiser's but since I started price searching I keep coming across fake warnings, to the point its put me off ordering.

We're all looking for that special deal, but the old adage "If looks to good to be true.." is more often then correct.

Absolutely. And remember there are actually different degrees of "fakes" - some are pretty convincing to the casual buyer.

From what I've read some of these Sennheiser knock-offs are really bad.

i bought a pair from play for about 15 quid and was really pleased great bass sound comfortable etc so i bought two extra pairs from playtrade @£11.00 graet deal? nope were fakes sound terrible dont stay in my ears be really cautious where you buy from

Only buy from an authorised Sennheiser dealer and no Sennheiser authorised seller is permitted to sell to another country outside of their allocated country. Go to the Sennheiser site and check the authorised dealers.
