Creative EP-630 vs sennheiser CX300, 12 Sept. 2007
At first glance these two seem to be very similar with not much separating the two price wise I have used and owned both so will give my views on the differences:
Size and weight:
The first thing i noticed about the creatives is that the ear pieces are noticeably lighter than the CX300's despite on closer inspection actually being slightly larger this makes them a lot easier to wear
The cable is in a "Y" shape rather than one end being large than the other as with the sennheisers this doesn't really bother me either way however it does mean that the overall cable length is around 5cm longer which is great as with some deep pocketed trousers i did have problems with the sennheisers as i am quite tall. Both use a two fused cables (you can clearly see both rather than them being combined into a single casing) for the main part which split above a separator.
The creative jack is straight (the sennheisers are in an "L" shape) and the cover seems to be of far better quality than the creatives which are rubberised and after a while come loose to the point where they can be taken off. the creative jack is also gold plated although i'm not how much difference this makes.
It seems to me that the creatives offer better noise isolation and mid to high range sound quality over the sennheisers however the latter does have slightly deeper bass sound.
I had no problems with the buds on either of the headphones personally using medium for both which are almost identical in size however it does seem that the in the other 2 sizes creative's are slightly smaller
