Sennheiser CX 280 Review

 

When we played the Cake ditty mentioned above at a family wedding a few years ago, everyone from five to 75 hopped to the dance floor to boogie. Listening to the Sennheiser CX 280's had the same effect on us: We started boppin' the instant their lush...

Crystal clear sound; bright yet warm; solid build quality

Left us craving for just a bit more bottom end; no in-line microphone

The Sennheiser CX 280’s are very worthy headphones, with a price/performance ratio that’s off the hook. The absence of an in-line mic limits their appeal, and they fell just short of making us fall in love with all our old albums again, but they make...

Affordable, volume control

Tonally flat

Very disappointing, the sound is dull and flat

Sennheiser CX 280 review

 

Earphones can be delicate things, so it's unfortunate that Sennheiser ships this set so firmly clipped into its packaging. It's best to push the left driver out from underneath rather than risk tugging on its lead. It comes with a soft pouch and three...

Small, light and with high sound quality and a low price – there’s nothing not to like.

The CX 280s look great, but lack punch when it comes to sound quality.

Overall, these headphones offer the weakest audio quality here, although they manage respectably on bass-light tunes. They look good though, and come in at a relatively low price.

Simple and effective design; inexpensive; best?looking earphones here

Audio quality reflects the low price of these earphones; lack of power

Overall, these headphones offer the weakest audio quality here, although they manage respectably on bass-light tunes. They look good, though, and come in at a relatively low price.

Decent sound, don't spend more than $30

 

Wow, the MSRP on these was $70? I paid $28 - must have been my lucky day. These were decent headphones - I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair since I use my headphones in the gym and while mowing the lawn. They lasted almost a full 2 years before...

Acceptable sound ; Decent lifespan

Highs were a little tinny ; Right headphone went kaput after 2 years of use

Consumer review by:

great little earbuds

 

They fit the ear great, and come with 3 different size rubber adapters just in case they don't fit out of the box. They dampen enough sound to make listening comfortable. For what I paid, they're terrific

can't think of one

Consumer review by:

Good, but not $69.99 good

 

Great audio and the rubber fits so well that it does help block outside noise. The volume control is also really nice

I got it for $15 during a clearance...so I'm very happy. However I can't imagine paying $69 for it. That's pretty crazy

Consumer review by:

Cheap parts

 

Warranty doesn't cover the anything from the cons section from what I've read on their product website, oh well.

Better sound quality compared to skull candy headphones that I find in retail stores nearby at around the same price ; Looong Cable

The sound from the right was weaker than the sound from the left. However, that was all solved by another problem haha ; Made of very cheap plastic, the front half of the right ear-bud broke off when I fell to my right (it was in the front pocket). It...

Great value.

 

I bought these for 17 bucks. They are worth a lot more than that. Considering trying out some bigger Sennheisers for my stationary needs.

Very good bang for buck. Balanced highs and lows. Excellent for silencing background noise. Decent bass. Seals well into ear and doesn't fall out

Slight background hissing audible when there's no sound playing, this is due to the fact that it seals into the ear so well and suppresses noise
