I always usually buy skullcandys, but after having to buy a new pair every 2 months, I looked elsewhere.
And here I came; the sennheiser CX300's.
(I just got them this morning)
The packaging is awesome, very eco friendly as it's made entirely from cardboard and is very compact!
When I picked up the headphones, I had doubts because the wire was so thin! If my skullcandys broke every 2 months, will these break sooner due to a flimsier design?
Also, the input isn't gold plated, so if you move it around whilst it's plugged in you will have loss of sound/quality, something that isn't helped by it's 'L' shaped design.
Now, on to what the earphones really excel in; their sound.
The quality is much better than my skullcandys! It has more bass to it and is louder too, which will help your MP3/iPhone/Gadget last longer since you can use a lower volume setting.
All in all, great sounding earphones, but I'm a bit cautious with them due to their flimsy design. Maybe a few weeks down the line I'll have more faith in them, but with a 2 year guarantee, it won't matter if they do break! (Although first I'll have to look into the guarantee to see how to use it)
