Product description

Product Description

Clad in an attractive appearance, the CX 175 ear canal phones are no less than charming. Offering an outstanding audio performance, thanks to their high powered dynamic speaker systems, they also include various ear adaptor sets for excellent fit and ambient noise attenuation. Strut in style and let the music flow anywhere you go.

Optimised for CD, MP3 players and portable gaming systems, if you love crystal clear sound whilst listening to music, then these are the earphones for you.

With their high passive attenuation of ambient noise and delivery of a powerful bass-driven sound, the CX 175 are the perfect audio companion for the trail or the pavement.

These earphones deliver the exceptional quality audio that you would expect from Sennheiser and they are supplied with a 2-year manufacturer warranty.

Avoid using headphones with the volume turned up for an extended period of time. Doing so can damage your hearing. It is advisable to keep the volume at a moderate level at all times. For your own safety, please do not use when driving or cycling.

*NOTE* - Wrapping headphones around phones/mp3 players leads to the gradual weakening of the headphone connection.

    I took delivery of these recently as replacements after trawling through a lot of reviews on different headphones around this price, my initial impression is a Nice Tight Bass the midrange is good. As for the top end yes it is brighter compared with my last set which were a little on the dull side at the mid/top end. I certainly found i was hearing more musical information compared with my old set. To my mind it's a matter of personal choice as to headphones and how they sound to me or you i feel that these are worth investigating. As for build quality they to me are a quality product for the price but time will tell!? they do come with a two year warranty as for the fit for my ears it's good...I will add an update after further use...These are used with an Apple ipod nano 7th gen.

    I enjoy listening to music but have never invested much money into headphones or speakers because quite honestly I never really believed there could be much more improvement to sound from a pair of cheap headphones. I guess if you never experience great sound, you don't know just what your missing.
    Thankfully I found these. For the price, you probably wont expect much but I was blown away. I find myself listening to songs I had grown tired of because they sound so much better now! And without loud background noise while I'm out (because these really do block out an awful lot of noise) I can listen to incredible sound without distractions.

    I know that there must be better headphones providing better sound out there, but I HIGHLY recommend these if you have never tried a proper pair of headphones before (the best I've ever had are probably the apple earphones you always see around). These are in a different league, and are INCREDIBLE VALUE for money. Cannot recommend these enough. (They also look great).

    Very reasonable price. Last ages. Good quality sound. Sound leakage only at high volumes. No distortion. Very sensible purchase.

    Not Sennheiser's best headphones by a long shot. Had their HD25s and they are amazing but these are rubbish.

    I have always liked my music at home to sound good and have a good pair of Bayer headphones for when the kids are in bed, but for some odd reason I have persisted with the (white) headphones that came with my Ipod. I think my logic said that the sound was never going to be any good on a train or walking along a busy London street, so why bother. I am glad I bothered. Money for Xmas from my parents meant that I didn't have to pretend to like some fashion shop knitwear and set a budget for the headphones. There are many types of headphones and too many reviews. Headphones that are loved by one person are reviled by the next. The more reviews I read the more confused I became. I chose the CX175s because they had a small number of consistent reviews and Sennheiser have a good reputation. For me they are a top choice. Having not used In-Ear headphones before I didn't know what to expect. I was initially disappointed as they lacked bass, but a day later I pushed them a little further into my ears and couldn't believe the sound. You will know when you have got them right and you probably need to experiment with the different size adaptors.
    If you, like me, are a newbie to in-ear headphones, there are two huge advantages that had not occurred to me (had not thought about it - really):
    1) The adaptors block out outside noise (not cancel it) to the extent that you can easily wear them on the loudest of underground trains and still clearly hear the music without turning it up to a level that will involve a trip to the doctors at some stage. The slight downside to this is that you cannot hear train announcements and are so enthralled in your own World that it is possible that you may wake up on an empty train at the end of Chingford line (only once, so far).

    Okay so I've been using these headphones today and I have to say I'm really disappointed. Coming from Sennheiser I expected really good quality sound, but this wasn't the case at all. High frequency sounds like Hi-hats and claps sound extremely sharp and actually made me wince, causing me to turn the volume right down to stop the "hissing" noises. Any track with these sounds in instantly becomes unusable.
    The bass is also extremely underwhelming and sometimes doesn't even sound like it's there, it has no power.

    The build quality is also dreadful, the wires feel weak and thin and tangle extremely easily, the buds themselves also feel hollow and light plasticy as if they'd break as easily as egg-shells. The wires also make a noticeable chafing noise when they rub against clothing that's audible through the buds.

    They seem to reproduce vocals quite well, but other than that other sounds seem toned down and bland, if they're not hissing in your ears. However, they have a really cool design that screams Sennheiser.

    I wouldn't recommend this product, and instead would advice doing some research and finding a much better pair, you may have to spend more to get something satisfactory but I'd almost say anything sounds better than these.
