Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
Member Name: chiefo
Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision
Advantages: Sound, Stylish, 3 Sets of buds.
Disadvantages: Price might be too much for some.
Never really knowing much about headphones I picked these up because they had decent reviews and the cost wasn't off putting. I had also heard of Sennheiser (German Brand) and recognised it as being one of the leaders in audio headphones.
I also travel quite a bit so thought they would do the job when plugging them into my laptop/mobile phone/portable DVD player.
I read that these are optimised for portable systems (including games consoles) and to be honest they do the job very well. I have been missing out on years using generic headphones not believing the hype. They are well worth the money for something which when you think gets used for hundreds of hours should make the decision of buying them a no brainer. The fact that you get a control too which i have never had before means i won't be going back to the old school type.
They are also well built, feel very sturdy and sit very comfortably in my ears. In the pack you get different sized (3) buds so you should be able to find one that fits your ears. They also look the part. They cable length isn't long, 1.2m so whilst it does the job I could have done with it being a little longer. When I go jogging sometimes it feels like it is pulling on the player so I have moved it to a chest pocket which has not solved the small problem. They are light but that probably doesn't get considered by anyone buying headphones. I liked the fact that the packet stated you get a 2 years guarantee. I have had friends break headphones on many occasions and knowing if anything goes wrong it is good that the manufacturer is there to help.
If you are after a pair of headphones which offer decent bass, very clear sounds which reduce background noise you could far worse that picking a pair of these up. The sound truly is so much better than what you get with standard gadgets, throw out whatever you get with your itouch etc, and pick a pair of these up. You'll have no idea of how important headphones are until you do.
Lastly it is nice that you get a small carry case which makes the experience of buying the Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision a quality product, here you can keep the spare buds.
Bring that music to life
4 out of 5
Summary: Treat yourself and throw out the generic set you have, time to upgrade your audio system!
