    Nice product, nice price! 7/26/2013
    Jaws from San Joaquin CA  

    The ear buds sound A+++ and the price was too good to pass up. Volume control is at your finger tips, and you get nothing but crisp clean sounds from these little guys. You won't be disappointed in these!

    Sennheiser = Quality 7/22/2013
    Derrick from Philadelphia, PA  

    I am very satisfied with the CX280s. Bass is very good, but not overpowering like other brands. You get a very clean sound with these phones.

    Great sound for the price 7/3/2013

    These Sennheisers sound great for being the earbud variety. They reproduce a decent amount of bass and have really good sonic clarity. Got them on sale and have the highest marks of satisfaction. Sound isolation is quite good as well.

    You Will be Amazed! 6/26/2013
    Steve from irvine, ca  

    I have several other pairs of other brand ear buds and a Bose QC-15 headset. I closely read the reviews before purchasing and the reviews were right on. The clarity is wonderful. The treble is crisp and the base full. I can hear sounds that I have not heard before even with the Bose Headset. My wife borrowed them and, oh well, that was the end of my ear buds. However, I outfoxed her and bought another set :) I have recommended them to others and everyone likes them.

    cheap but good 6/26/2013

    Sennheiser CX280 6/14/2013

    While I haven't as of yet used these I'm currently using a set of the 100 series and they sound awesome (clean high end, nice tight bass). If the CX280's are like the 100 series they tangle pretty easy

    Good, but something missing 6/14/2013
    DS from Warrenville, IL  

    These earbuds do a good job of reducing external noises. The base is very weak, however. I expected a little more from a "higher-end" set, so if you're looking for booming base, look elsewhere. Otherwise, these are pretty good.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Disapointed after rave reviews. 6/10/2013
    Jeff from Detroit, MI  

    Sennheiser 280 earbuds were "ok" sounding, not bad, but...the default set that came with my Sansa 1Gb Clip player sounds better, which was dissapointing. The vocals were clearer & the overall sound better on the Sansa buds. If I was not comparing them to my Sansa buds, then I might give them a B, but in comparison, only a C+ (sligtly better than average). The cord noise is also annoying, with movement and the cords are super thin. I had to use the largest inserts to get a good sound.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Sennheiser CX280 Ear Phones 6/7/2013

    These little buds deliever great Sennheiser sound. Paying only $18 is about what they are worth seeing how it retails for $69 and I've seen them for $35. They are very light weight but seem a little flimsy. Cord lenght is longer that most. Volume control on cord is a plus. So far they have held up well. Bottom line, good sound.

    Nice natural sound 4/12/2013

    Nice set of headphones. Very clear, natural, detailed sound. They are a little thin in the bass department for some people but I'm not big on overly heavy fake bass like some other brands so these are great for me.

    Sennheiser CX280 Rocks. 4/11/2013

    Best of the bunch 4/11/2013
    fasteddie199 from Pittsburgh, PA  

    I've had several in-ear headphones over the years an so far I like these the best. Very accurate. Doesn't slam you with muddy bass. Highs are very clean. The standard sleeves fit my ears perfectly. They are very comfortable and the cord does not tangle easily.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Very Good Ear Buds 4/4/2013

    Awesome best describes these earbuds. When I first listened to my itunes through them I immediately started hearing sounds in tracks that I did not hear before. The bass is unbelievable for the size, not overpowering but just enough punch. The rest of the spectrum is crisp and clear. I originally bought these exclusively to work out on the treadmill/elliptical. Great motivator. The sound was almost as if I was at home rocking to my stereo. At home I only use my Dr Dre headphones now if the house is extremely noisy. Not to undertstate the noise canceling ability of the earbuds.

    Great Earphones at an Astounding Price 4/4/2013
    Robert Mc Daniel from Lemon Grove, CA  

    I've always loved Sennheiser products throughout the entire range from Professional Sound (the 421 microphone makes any voice sound sweet and pure), through the over-ear headphones, and now these ear buds. Cord mounted volume control is a very handy feature. Nice, pure sound with an easy and comfortable fit.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Works well 4/4/2013

    Sound is loud.. It has an inline volume control which will allow you to set the volume lower then the MP3 player allows if you want the music to be in the background.

    Great sound... 3/30/2013
    John W from Bristow, VA  

    When I first tried them, I was disappointed with weak bass; however, after changing the rubber ear adapters to the large size (they come with mediums) the noise isolation was terrific and the bass BEAUTIFUL. The only CON: the volume slide control has an uneven gradient - at a point in the slide, it suddenly becomes much quieter. I plan to use the vol control on my digitizer, anyway. Otherwise, the construction seems very solid. Tested with MOG: Schubert's Trout Quintet (Levine).

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Good noise-isolating headphones 3/14/2013
    David from San Diego  

    These seem to be fairly modest-level Sennheizer earbuds, but they worked for me. I did not want to pay too much for a pair of headphones that I might accidentally break or leave on the airplane. The noise-isolating qualities are sufficient for use on an airplane and they were pretty comfortable for me. The markings for left and right ear are a little difficult to read, especially in a dimly lit plane.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Bang for your bucks 3/14/2013

    Great sound at a low price 2/22/2013

    These headphones work great and are reasonably priced. The earpieces are small & cushioned, unlike so many of the recent iPhone-style headphones, and so are very comfortable. The headphones also include 2 sets of alternative foam pads if you like a different shape for the earpiece. The carrying bag is nice, but not sure I'll really have a use for it. The cord is a little short for computer use, but works great for portable players. Overall, a very good purchase.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    I own 3 pairs of these 1/3/2013

    This is actually my fourth pair of CX 280s, and it's not because the others have worn out. It's just because they're great. I own two sets, and keep one in my bag and one attached to an iPod. I've also given two sets as gifts. The bass is quite good for all types of music, including hip hop, and once you choose the right sized earpiece, they do a nice job of blocking out ambient noise (note that these are NOT active noise CANCELLING headphones). Can't say enough good things about them at $30.
