Sennheiser CX 280 review

 

Earphones can be delicate things, so it's unfortunate that Sennheiser ships this set so firmly clipped into its packaging. It's best to push the left driver out from underneath rather than risk tugging on its lead. It comes with a soft pouch and three...

Small, light and with high sound quality and a low price – there’s nothing not to like.

Sennheiser CX 280 review

 

The CX 280s look great, but lack punch when it comes to sound quality.

Overall, these headphones offer the weakest audio quality here, although they manage respectably on bass-light tunes. They look good though, and come in at a relatively low price.

Simple and effective design; inexpensive; best?looking earphones here

Audio quality reflects the low price of these earphones; lack of power

Sennheiser CX 280 Review

 

When we played the Cake ditty mentioned above at a family wedding a few years ago, everyone from five to 75 hopped to the dance floor to boogie. Listening to the Sennheiser CX 280's had the same effect on us: We started boppin' the instant their lush...

Crystal clear sound; bright yet warm; solid build quality

Left us craving for just a bit more bottom end; no in-line microphone

The Sennheiser CX 280’s are very worthy headphones, with a price/performance ratio that’s off the hook. The absence of an in-line mic limits their appeal, and they fell just short of making us fall in love with all our old albums again, but they make...

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Good but not bassy enough

 

I wanted to go for some good quality headphones that wouldn't fall apart after a week (I'd been reading bad reviews about the cheaper ones) so chose these as Sennheiser has a good reputation.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

sound good, still working 3 years after purchase

 

I've used these daily at work for over 3 years now. I use them at my desk so the cord doesn't get abused. They have lasted 3 times longer than the last set I paid $100 for.

no cons

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Decent sound, don't spend more than $30

 

Wow, the MSRP on these was $70? I paid $28 - must have been my lucky day. These were decent headphones - I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair since I use my headphones in the gym and while mowing the lawn. They lasted almost a full 2 years before...

Acceptable sound ; Decent lifespan

Highs were a little tinny ; Right headphone went kaput after 2 years of use
