Sennheiser CX 400 Ear Buds

 

Get both style and durability in one pair of ear buds!

The product comes in two variants, Sennheiser CX 400 Precision White and Titanium, and makes one of the most durable such devices. No distortions cover the music users listen to when using these ear buds and they also include an extra kit

Although quite comfortable to wear, the ear buds are not properly sized and the isolation feature does not function at maximum capacity. More than that, the cord is quite short, which leads to having the ear buds falling out of the ear and the bass is...

The Sennheiser CX-400 ear buds have an attractive design and provide superior details reproduction for a wide musical range and a precise dynamic. They are able to maximize the quality of portable music players used and they include a volume control on...

Sennheiser CX 400 sound-isolating earphones review

 

A stunning set of earphones for the money. With great bundled accessories and sound quality to utterly destroy the 'phones that came with your MP3 player, Sennheiser's CX 400s are probably the best sub-£40 earphones you can upgrade to

Sound quality for the price ; Great included accessories ; Comfortable and unintrusive

Bass may be favoured too heavily for some listeners

But if you're prepared to spend just a little extra moolah, check Sennheiser's CX 500s. These are the top model in the series and will give you noticeably greater performance for little over a tenner more than the 400s. You'll get a bonus in-line...

Block out the hubbub and enjoy your tunes with these punchy Sennheisers.

It's quite astonishing what £40 will buy you in terms of sound quality these days and these Sennheiser CX400s are among the best deals you will come across. They're not quite the last word in fidelity, and if it's the last word in realism and...

Sennheiser CX400 is a pair of headphones that boasts of quality bass and clarity. It has rubber sheathes that protect the cable that comes from each earpiece from going down in your ear. Unlike other earphones with cables which are either too long or...
