What customers say about "Features"
Sony MDR-XB50AP In-Ear Extra Bass Headphones with In-Line Control
  • The cable is nice quality, and feels a lot like the cable that came with my MDR-1A's albeit a lot thinner.
  • Plenty of spare buds. The default ones seem a perfect fit for me.
  • Capable of ear piercingly loud volumes without failing/crackling.
  • Great passive sound cancelling. Keeps all the office noise out.
  • Inline microphone has received compliments for its clarity.
Sennheiser CX 300-II In-Ear Headphones
  • Sound quality, asymmetric cables, earpieces that don't fall out.
  • They fit perfectly meaning you block out virtually all background noise.
  • They are really comfortable; they come with two different sized rubber inserts but I've never changed them.
  • The soft ear buds are extremely comfortable and seal your ear canal to block out external sounds.
  • The ear pieces are small and light, sit comfortably in the ear with no effort and cut the noise from the environment at a notable amount.
