Sennheiser CX300

 

The CX300 marks Sennheiser's first attempt at the in-ear, canalphone-type headphone that has made Shure and Etymotic famous. While most canalphones are touted as being noise-reducing, the CX300 takes a different angle, creating a hybrid ear...

Custom sleeves for proper fitting; good sound quality

Poor sound isolation; fragile feeling

clocking in at half the price, and with unmatched comfort, the CX300 comes out on top for value.

Sennheiser CX-300

 

Type: In-Canal, Sealing: Open, Noise-canceling: Passive, Impedance: 16 ohms, Maximum SPL: 112 dB, Weight: 0.3 oz

Strong bass. Good detail. Compact and lightweight.

Silicone caps are easy to lose. No carrying pouch.

If you want thumping bass with minimal mud, you'll love these compact in-ear headphones.

Sennheiser CX 300 (Silver)

 

The Sennheiser CX 300's construction quality exceeds that of most earbuds, and the soft and flexible Y cable is a good length at 49 inches. The CX 300--available in black or silver finishes--doesn't come with the usual accessories, such as a travel...

The Sennheiser CX 300 offers solid sound quality, significant isolation from outside sounds, and an ultralightweight design, as well as three sizes of silicon ear tips to ensure a perfect fit--all for well less than $100.

The Sennheiser CX 300 doesn't come with a travel pouch or any other accessories.

If you're looking for an affordable, decent-sounding pair of earbuds, start with the Sennheiser CX 300. Sennheiser's first in-ear design sounds like a winner to us.

Punchy earphones that produce noteworthy mids and highs but fall short in gratifying bass.

Although the noise isolation on the Sennheiser CX300 is pretty good, the overall sound quality is where the headphones shine. The bass is not over the top but the clarity in the mids and highs make up for that. In order to get a favorable bass...

The cord on the Sennheiser CX300 is asymmetrical, meaning that the length on the earbuds is not even. One side is 53 inches in length while the other is 60 inches. If you don’t mind the wire slack on one side, then it's forgivable. Also, for the price,...

Sennheiser CX 300 earbud headphones Review and Prices

 

The Sennheiser CX 300 headphones aren't your typical earbuds. These are designed to fit gently but snugly inside the opening to the ear canal, which accomplishes two things. First, while it doesn't cancel out ambient sound, it does significantly reduce...

Sennheiser CX300 earphones review

 

Sound is always important and for most of the time the headphones packaged in with your MP3 player is where the company has cut the most corners. Apple might have those iconic white earphones but most magazines and websites will agree, upgrading is the...

Good sound, good fit, cheap

Don't come in iPod white

As the next step up from the headphones you get in the box the CX 300 perform well

We've reviewed plenty of headphones here at the GoodGearGuide. So much so that our editor seems intent on going into a fit as soon as we even begin to...

Aesthetically pleasing, Excellent bass levels, Price

Mid Range lacks some detail

For their price, the CX 300’s offer a more than adequate replacement for your standard iPod headphones in terms of sound quality; and you'll also be pretty pleased with their bass levels.

Sennheiser CX300 II

 

The CX 300-II has an asymetrical cable system where the left earbud is passed around the back of your neck to keep the cables out the way

Superb value ; Great audio ; Light and comfortable

Soft cable and connector feel robust ; Slightly flabby bass and unrefined treble ; Asymmetrical cables

If you're on a budget but want to ditch the crappy Apple buds, we can't say it loudly or plainly enough: buy a set of Sennheiser CX 300-II

Sennheiser CX 300 review

 

If you're looking for an affordable, decent-sounding pair of earbuds, start with the Sennheiser CX 300. Sennheiser's first in-ear design sounds like a winner to us

Solid sound quality ; Significant isolation from outside sounds ; Ultra-lightweight design ; Three sizes of silicon ear tips to ensure a perfect fit ; All for around £30

Doesn't come with a travel pouch or any other accessories

Sennheiser's off to a good start, but the CX 300's sound is nowhere as clear and open as that of our favourite Shure and Etymotic models
