    Well, surfing amazon and found cx-300's for 20 bucks so i was like HOLY!@$# and grabbed my mom to buy them for me.

    I listen to mostly metal, metal core, and classic/alternative rock.
    Probably my most listened artist though, is Owl City.

    Will I be satisfied with the headphones?

    previous pair of headphones were Marshmallows.

    Yes, much more comfortable than Marshmellows imho.
    CX-300 are decent headphones, not very bassy though. Balanced sound, but it has an asymmetrical cord which I find very annoying.
    I didn't like the 3 ft cord either.
    I switched to the Sennheiser CX 400s after I found them as a good deal on Amazon for $30 (wish that still applied).
    But yeah, CX 300s are definitely a good pair. But that's from my opinion.

    Not as much as my CX-400s were.
    But then I may not have had any in-ears that weren't bassy lol.
