When it comes to products built for the professional musician or the sound connoisseur, Sennheiser is a name that has been synonymous with quality since 1945. But superior quality and a keen attention to meeting the end-users needs doesnt always have to come at an equally high price. Sennheiser CX300 earbuds are priced well under the $50, so you wont have to squeeze your pocketbook to get high fidelity sound out of your portable music player or gaming device.
Even though Sennheiser doesnt market its CX300’s as being designed for sound isolation, when properly fitted these earbuds allow only minimal intrusion from external sounds. The earpieces are made of soft, high-grade silicon, which enhances the superb sound quality and provides incredible comfort over longer periods of usage.
The quality of sound output by the CX300’s is phenomenal, with great responsiveness throughout all the highs, mids, and lows. Its no wonder the Sennheiser CX-300’s are among the highest rated earbuds below $50, the CX300-S and CX300-B are comparable in sound quality and construction to those falling into the more expensive price ranges. Sennheiser markets their eabud set as being bass-driven, and while the CX300s definitely offer fantastic lows, the bass doesn’t drown out the clarity from the rest of the sound spectrum.
Sennheiser CX300s also come in several colors – silver, black, pink, white. The variation on the CX300 nomenclature gives away the color you will be using. For instance Sennheiser CX300-S are the silver model and CX300-P are the pink model. The earbuds also come packaged with a small nylon travel bag and three sizes of earpieces for a snug fit in just about any ear canal. In addition to the superior sound reproduction, the lightweight design, snug fit, and soft earpieces make for an extremely comfortable listening experience.
