Seems to be quite a few bargains on Play at present, thanks to j17esh for posting the rechargeable battery deal which led me to this.

The Sennheiser CX300 is an old model, but for £5 you can't go wrong.

As these are a 2.5mm jack most people will probably require a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adaptor to use these on most MP3 players.

The cheapest I've found is on Ebay for 99p delivered, UK seller so no need to wait for them to be shipped out from HK. Search for "3.5/3.5mm" in all categories and it should be the second result shown.

Please keep and mind that Play have a habit of not fulfilling orders, so it may pay to wait for these to be dispatched before ordering an adaptor.

EDIT : Just had the majority of the order I placed for the Camlink rechargeable batteries cancelled. I've had 10 out of 16 orders cancelled by Play in the last few months, so it really does pay not to buy any accessories until you have confirmation that your goods are on the way.

These are the 2.5mm plug version before anyone rushes in to buy them, still good find and price and not Playtrade either

Very good point, I've ammended the title.

I already have more headphones than MP3 players so haven't purchased these myself, but will have a browse for a cheap adaptor to match with these.

Excellent can anybody point me in the direction of a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adaptor

Seems to be plenty of these on Ebay from about 99p delivered, UK sellers to so no need to wait for them to arrive from HK.

Just make sure you buy the right ones, 2.5mm female to 3.5mm male, most of them seem to convert the other way round.

I preferred these to the newer CX300-II's as well. Base seems a little 'muddy' in the newer version.

I think this adaptor is the wrong way round, it's designed to adapt a 3.5mm plug to work in a 2.5mm socket

Do NOT buy a pair of cheap Sennheiser headphones from ebay. They will be fake. Even playtrade have had some fakes in stock and it is these that usually account for the bad reviews. It is a similar story from amazon. I specifically bought the cx500s from play to minimise the risk of getting a fake pair. This is a cracking price for the cx300s, though!

adaptor will it reduced sound quility

Excellent find. Heat added. These are perfect for my Nokia E71 which annoyingly has a 2.5mm headphone socket. Means I can get rid of the annoying oversized jack.

Thanks, ordered, heat added.

Path to the dark side your grammar is

Why expired, just ordered a pair!

I got fakes from Amazon, they sounded pretty good but I was more bothered about the warranty being worthless. I sent them back, got a refund, then got the earphones back in the post as the imbecile gave the wrong postcode and the Royal Mail couldn't be bothered to sort it out. So I kept them, and the money. Win.

Can I use this with HTC desire as I think thats 2.5mil?

WARNING!

as said already but worth repeating - eBay cheap ones will be fake!

Great deal - thanks for the heads up.

Desire has 3.5mm socket

Would an adaptor be needed to use these with an iPhone 3G?

aw was too late, theres no buy button... or play trade option neither

Thanks for this, just ordered too.
Hope it arrives.

glad to have helped find a deal!

hopefully Play will honour this one and not cancel your orders??

Thanks op. ordered earlier to use with my E71 as i've just bust my old ones.

well mine says packaging so look like I'm in luck I ended up getting a 1.40 adapter but still 6.40 for these is still a bargain in my eyes my last earphones were urbanz what can I expect from these in comparsions.

I ordered thinking i had a converter, turns out it's the other way around - 3.5mm to 2.5mm :-(

Spotted some from a play trade seller for £7.03, still got time to cancel my order........

has Play dispatched these earphones to anyone? mine is saying "Awaiting Stock "

Mine just says 'Order taken'
