What do the average headphones cost? £10? Well, I was sick to the back teeth of buying good earphones from Apple only to have them break after 2 months. It was ridiculous! We pay good money for apply products, yet the earphones break after 2 months stopping you from actually using the product. It is a rip off, I was about to take action!
It got to the point where I thought right, that's it I'm going to get the best pair money could buy. I always found that earphones never sit in my ear, my ears are unnaturally small and the rounded, flat earphones only half sit in my eye resulting in my not being able to hear my music properly. I live in my earphones, I use them for walking, for the gym, for cleaning, for watching movies, for learning my second language, for going on webcam, and now I was left earphone less, again! I searched on Amazon for the best pair of earphones money could buy. I took a risk, thinking the one thing consumers should never think. 'If it's more expensive, it's better". However, I used to think paying £10.00 for earphones was bad! I was not stopping anywhere, I would pay £100 if I had to. I was going to get a pair of earphones that would last. That's when I came across these.
They were priced at £30 from Amazon brand new, expensive but I was willing to pay. So I bought the earphones, expecting to find a pair of earphones that were just like ordinary earphones but lasted a bit longer. Oh no, these were something else.
When they arrived, I unpacked them and touched the earphone. It was spongy! It was long! I looked as if it would just rest in your ear, no falling out, no fuss. As my biggest problem with earphones was they they constantly fell out, It was great to find out that you get two extra earphone buds which suit the size of your ear. I had to change it to one of the spares because they were perfect for me. Also, I find that I can share the earphones more easily because all I have to do is change the buds and it's perfectly hygienic!
It comes with a little clip, which in all honesty I have never used and I have actually lost! The only problem I had with them was that the cable was orange. In all honesty, I don't like people seing that I have an iPod on me just in case I get robbed. Therefore I like the wires to be discreet. However, with the performance of these earphones I didn't really complain!
These were what I had been looking for all along. They felt so comfortable in. and the sound was right in the middle, so it moved directly from the earphone to my hear, none of this losing any sound because it was twisted to the side trying to get the bulky bad boy to fit! I also noticed the earphones were twisted to an angle at the bottom, allow it to bend over the bottom of your ear. This was great as this could have been another reason they fell out so often, because the bottom of my ear was pushing the headphone out. They fit in so securely and so tightly. The cable was long, so no more bending my giraffe neck down to keep the wire in tact any more.
However, my favourite, no.1 feature of these earphones, is that they are wildly loud!! I do like my loud iPod, I like to block out the sound of the outside world no matter what I'm doing and sick into my own word of dreams with my music. They come in a silver and gold pattern, which is good because it matches with the colours of my iPod touch!
My friend also has the precision. I have tried these and despite being more expensive I don't find they are as good. These are definitely more secure and don't fall out when I go for a run!
I have had my earphones 5 months now and they haven't failed my since. I am so proud of my CX 380, and I am telling all of you that if you have an iPod, you will have to replace your earphones all the time which will cost you a fortune! So, buy these ones and save yourself some money!
Believe it or not, better than Skull Candy and other makes you might find out there. They not only do the job, but they excel at it. They are very comfortable to wear and, if you're a fitness fanatic like me, you'll appreciate how they stay on while running and various other sports. They are also sweat and water resistant and you can wash them under running water - no excuses for not pushing ourself at the gym! If you want something more fancy with some form of design, then by all means choose another make, but for quality of sound and durability these cannot be beat. I would say that I am an excessive user of these headphones, but their usability has not faded at all. The sound quality if excellent, due to the inner ear piece which just engulfs you in your tunes. Looks wise, they would accompany most MP3 players, with their contempporary look and not look out of place. The wire is very durable which is helpful if you dont want to keep buying more. They retail at £43.14, which, for a product you're going to use over and over again, for many years, is a good investment. You can use them with your MP3, dvd, cd players other portable gaming devices, such as the PSP. They come with a 2 year warranty - which shows how confident Sennheiser are about this particular product.
