5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed so far !!, 21 Feb. 2006
This review is from: High Quality Stereo Ear-Canal Headphones - Silver (Electronics)
I bought these after seeking some earphones to deliver some quality sound from my MP3 player.
I have had 3 sets of Sony MDR-EX71s so far. I love the sound and fit of these but all have fallen apart within about 6 months.
In the quest for better sound I bought some Shure E2Cs about a month ago. These do sound good if you can get them deep in to the ear canal and to stay there. However, I could not get them to stay in place having tried all 9 ear pieces and did not find them comfortable. The sound is then not at all good on these if they are not snug.
I then took delivery of the CX300s today. I have only been using them for an hour or so but already I am impressed.
The comfort level is very nice. The wire is not heavy and do not pull the buds down or out. They come with three different size earpieces (I believe the same sizes as the Sonys). The mediums, which are in place in the package, fit perfectly. I can hardly feel that they are in.
Sound wise, as I say, I have only had these on for about an hour but the soundsquality is great. Music separation is good. Bass is strong and punchy. Compared to the Sonys: better for sure in my opinion. Compared to the Shure's: hard to tell as I never had them in place long enough to get consistently good sound but I would say not a whole heap difference. If the CX300s are any worse it is not significant and the far nicer comfort would lead me to choose the CX300s over the Shures every time.
I can whole-heartedly recommend these as a more then adequate replacement for anyone looking for an upgrade in sound quality from standard earphones supplied with portable music devices.
Hope this helps you make a more informed choice.
