SENNHEISER CX55 3.5mm Connector Canal Noise-Isolating Headphone

 

My pair actually survived a spin cycle in the wash and they still sound great.

Excellent sound quality. These headphones actually have (some) bass definition. If you're used to earbuds you'll be amazing at how much bass you've been missing. They're very comfortable and fit perfectly, making your music seem loud even if it's...

It feels kind of weird at first to stick headphones inside your ears. Also the "sound" of in-ear headphones is a little different. Lots of audiophiles will pay extra for circumaurals because in-ears sound unnaturally loud and don't have much bass...

Pleased with headphones

 

I practically live with my iPod on, and I am very rough with my headphones. So far, they have outlasted my previous brand of headphones by several months. I think that they would have a longer life if the top part of the jack was much shorter.

The headphones muffle noise when no music is playing, and almost completely cancel it out when music is. I've had them since January 2008, I've found them to be very durable

The top part of the jack is about an inch long and not very flexible. I felt ambivalent about the sound quality at first, but it has grown on me. (Mostly because this was a big jump from the cheap headphones I used to buy.)

good quality

 

Sound quality is excellent

THEY SHOCK MY EARS! when my old headphones broke, i ordered these, very happy with the quality. ill get a subtle popping noise and after about 10mins of listening to my ipod, ill get a quick shock and my ipod will freeze

Consumer review by:

CX55 iPhone compatiblity.

 

They sound great to me, though I'm no audiophile. They must be pretty sensitive, as my iPhone can drive them pretty loud! The bass is excellent, perhaps the best I've heard in an earbud.

Out of the box, the CX55s don't fit the iPhone's unusual (due to it's deep recess) headphone socket. You can make the CX55s fit, though, with about two minutes of modifying

It's a little hard to describe, but the headphone plug on the CX55s in encased in a somewhat-flexible rubber boot. I found a sharp pair of scissors, wedged them in to the boot and made a small (2.55mm) incision in the boot ; Then, I was able to pull...

Not to bad

 

These are my fifth pair of in ear headphones. I've used the Koss spark plugs the Sony 71's, the Sony 81's, and the Shure E2c's. theses Sennheisers pack alot of bass if you fit them in your ear correctly, compared to the shures they have more bass but...

They pack bass, have a good cord length, have an overall clear sound, they do block out sound when turned up, but i doesn't take a lot of volume to make them loud, and seem to be made well

The rubber on the cord snags to everything, may be uncomfortable when worn with a beanie, has to be placed in ear correctly to get optimal sound

Consumer review by:

low base, good fitting

 

I hope for that price they will last a while. All cheap ear phones I had (about 7) broke after a few months the latest. The Koss mentioned above was chewed up by the cat, so that doesn't count.

Cancels surrounding noise pretty well. Good for loud trains/buses

Sound quality doesn't seem very good to me. Not very much base. I liked the sound of my Koss Plug better

SENNHEISER CX55 3.5mm Connector Canal Noise-Isolating Headphone

 

The carrying pouch is cool.

Very good for long flights. Most of the engine noise is inaudible with these on

These earphones already broke. In addition to the loud annoying sounds made when any part of the wire is tapped, the end of the wire which plugs into your mp3 player/computer is not glued onto the little cover which they put over it, making something...
