    Hi,
    I'm in Amazon right now looking for Sennheiser IEM earphones.
    The CX series, to be exact.

    Which of the three is 'better'?
    CX300, CX400, or CX500?

    As far as my preference goes.
    I want balance on all levels.
    But a bit more bass and vocal clarity would suit me
    ...or treble, as well.

    Wellps, yeah.
    Thanks!

    Might have a look at the CX550/CX95 model? Same model, just different accessories. I think if you wanted a more neutral sound, CX500 wouldn't work.

    Thanks Chung,
    I'll look them up right away.
    But what do you mean by different accesories?
    What is the sound of CX500 create, anyways?

    @PathofiPod
    You could have made another thread or passed by on his profile and leave a message
    ..oh wait, that contradicts what I told Chung about people asking for headphones help on his profile T__T

    CX550/CX95 = The same drivers etc, but just different case (I think) and different extension cable I think. Oh and the different finish.

    Pathofipod: I might as well answer your question now since I can see edited messages in this section. I do not know any bluetooth headphones whatsoever I'm afraid.

    Thanks dooodee.
    But it's unavailable in Amazon US.
    and all I see is the three I mentioned on my OP post.

    Now that being said
    I dont think I can be picky anymore.
    CX300 or CX400?
    Which would be at least close to my preferences?

    CX400 ish? It's just a slightly refined CX300. However, I'm not sure what the differences are of the original model compared to the II versions.

    Tahaha, the only thing I'm attracted on those two are because of its price.
    Its less than $30 USD.

    There is some new version called the CX300-500 II. It looks more different, but I don't know about anything else.
