The plastic around the audio jack broke after only a few months of use. This could be due to earbuds being plugged into an iPhone 6+ which leave much room in my pocket, putting strain on the L-shaped jack when taking my phone in and out of my pocket. I rode the subway to work 5 days a week last year, and was constantly taking my phone in and out of my pocket to change the song which inevitably put stress on the jack. I'm living in South America at the moment, and it isn't recommended to keep your phone out on your lap or even in your hand while going place to place. As is such, the jack broke so I ended up having to tape things back in place, though the cable eventually got too twisted/frayed and now only one of the buds works, the other intermittently. The jack is not made of the highest quality/most sturdy plastic, but it shouldn't be a problem if you're cognizant of the issue. This issue is not nearly enough to put me off from these earbuds.
This brings me to the second issue. You have to take your phone in and out of your pocket constantly the change the song, to answer a call/text, etc. because there isn't a microphone or pause/play button. And because these headphones are wonderfully noise-isolating (which I'll get to in a minute), you have to either pull them out of your ears when someone starts talking to you or pause your music directly on your phone/mp3 player which can be inconvenient if placed in your pocket or bag. This issue doesn't nearly ruin these earbuds for me.
The third issue is that of having two different cable lengths between the earbuds. This supposedly helps prevent tangling, but I haven't noticed it to help at all. All this does is make the headphone tug on your ears unevenly when you inevitably have to take them out to talk to someone (because there's no pause/play button). I resorted to wrapping the longer cable around the back of my neck, or else the slack from the longer cable would annoyingly hang in front of me and unevenly distribute the tugging weight between my ears. Still, this issue doesn't turn me off from these earbuds.
Before I get to the pros I'll note that the problems with the jack and the tangling could have been avoided if I took a little better care of these earbuds. I got these earbuds mostly for commuting and to toss around without worry, unlike a few other pairs of earbuds and over-ear headphones that I use at home, on airplanes, etc.
For the money, the sound quality is unbelievable. Sharp highs, clear mids, and deep, booming bass that I've rarely found in any earbuds at any price level. This versatility came as a very pleasant surprise to me. Like my more expensive over-ear headphones, I found myself discovering new layers to some of my favorite songs which is always awesome. This has to do with both the clarity of the earbuds, as well as their excellent noise isolation characteristics. To reiterate, sound quality on these earbuds is truly out of their league.
Noise isolation is excellent as I mentioned. The earbuds come with three different size rubber inserts. Whichever size is good for you (the large ones for me), they fit snuggly and comfortably in your ear. The few times I've taken a long bus ride and didn't want to take my over-ears with me, these stayed comfortable in my ears and kept my ride quiet the entire time. They never fell out, needed to be adjusted or needed a break from due to discomfort. Unlike comparable earbuds, you don't have to jam these ones in your ears, sacrificing your listening comfort, just to reap the benefits of their noise isolation. As they are noise-isolating, not noise-canceling, they don't require batteries or charging which keeps them light and as far as I'm concerned and puts them at no disadvantage to noise-canceling options when it comes to blocking out surrounding noise.
Minimalistic design. The headphones are completely black except for small chrome rings and the hardly noticeable Senheiser logo on the back of the earbuds. You could argue that their design is boring, or maybe even cheap (it just says CX300II where a microphone should be) but to me they're perfectly subtle and understated. If you're looking for blingy earbuds, look elsewhere. The swagger of these headphones comes out in the areas where they truly excel, in the aforementioned sound quality and noise isolation. Seems like these earbuds were engineered with their performance in mind before anything else, and that's okay with me.
If you take care of these earbuds, can look past some slight design flaws, I promise you will be very VERY happy. These headphones seem to be unrivaled at this price range or even the next level up when it comes to their strong points. Sound quality, comfort (after some adjustment) and noise isolation are the most important things to me, and let's be honest...headphones don't break themselves and you can certainly be more careful with them than I was. Having learned my lesson, I'm ordering another pair without hesitation. Now that you're informed, you should too!
I've already had a pair so when I saw them going for such a good price I bought another two of them!
Clear Kick-A sound, select the right size earbuds and they fit snugly and comfortably with terrific noise cancelling - they've got the seal of a car door!
Comfortable enough to wear in bed whilst you are watching a show or listening to music. They are also very durable - I had my first pair for a good few years - I don't pull and tug at them but they have been known to end up in a jumble of knots when the "Earphone Phantom" has paid one of his frequent visits to my handbag!
Enhanced bass INDEED! You will notice parts in songs that you'd never heard before and games that sound like you've got a burly bloke sitting on your shoulders giving you throaty growls of praise and when he says "Game over" - he REALLY means it!!
I have been using earphones since the personal stereo explosion of the 80's so I've had a shed load over the years and I have got to say, this one is my all-time favourite!
I bought my first pair of CX 300 II earbuds on March 25, 2015 from Amazon. While both ear pieces were functional, they sounded great. Sometime in March 2016, the left channel went out. I was quite disappointed, and ended up falling back on my $5 amazon-basic earbuds. At this time, I was unaware of the 2-year warranty.
On August 23, 2016 I decided to purchase a new set of the CX 300 II earbuds. The amazon-basics headphones weren't cutting it, and I missed the sound quality and asymmetrical earbud cabling provided by the CX 300s.
It's now May 15, 2017 and the left channel in my latest pair of CX 300 II earbuds has gone out. I'm very frustrated, considering it hasn't even been a year since they were purchased! I take really great care of my headphones and expect more from Sennheiser.
The sound on these is clear and clean and the bass is fantastic! There is no static or residual noise from the wire movement and they are definitely noise cancelling. Someone next to me was speaking to me and I had no idea, i only had my sound at a medium level.
The only con - and this amounts to personal preference - is the asymmetrical wire. I'm female and tend to wear my hair down, wrapping the cord around the back of my head to my right ear ends up with my hair tangled around the cord a bit. Not a huge deal but a bit of an annoyance.
All in all of say these are definitely worth the price when it comes to sound, I haven't had them very long so I currently can't comment on longevity.
So let's get into it, shall we?
- They're perfect for running. I typically run 3-5 miles at a time, and I always hit the wire and knock my earbuds out of my ears. These guys make that far less likely because they go behind the head and tuck safely away.
-They stand up well against long-term sweat and wear (I'm a fairly brutal headphone user).
- The earbuds work well for commuting, and aren't as likely to be tugged our knocked out.
- Discrete, yet still maintain an impressive seal and great sound quality. The bass, obviously, in enhanced, but the higher notes still have good presence and make for a great listening tool.
- Not the most noise-cancelling, but honestly not the worst either.
- The rubber ear tips sometimes get lost, which can be inconvenient.
