What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Cowon EM1 Headphone
  • The clarity of sound is unamatchable and its quite light.
  • Stylish and beautiful as well as very light and comfortable.
  • It sits perfectly in my ears. Weight is almost not felt. Light as a feather.
  • The weight of the controller is incorrectly distributed and the headphones constantly fall out.
  • Quite small and light but the controller spoils everything as it pulls the headphones out of the ears because of its weight.
Sennheiser CX 180 Earphones
  • Travel friendly as you dont need special cases. Its a standard earphone. Just grab, fold, dump and go.
  • The headphones are light weight, non bulky, and comes with different sizes of earbuds making it comfortable to listen for long hours.
  • Another bonus is its tiny size and low weight, which makes you forget you're wearing earphones even while sleeping.
  • The size is compact and the design fits into all my friends ear too! Recommended.
  • Small in size and ergonomic design make them really light to wear. The earphones produce great sound.

What customers say about "Features"
Cowon EM1 Headphone
  • Very good reproduction and the flat ribbon cable less likely to tangle!
  • The headphones have a tangle free cord and are comfortable for the ears and have good sound quality.
  • Amazingly clear and loud with real pain free ear buds and tangle free cord.
  • The inline microphone is great for hands-free. Also, great call quality with my Android Phone.
  • Certainly needs to change the buds. The ones that came with the earphones didn't give me enough bass and noise isolation.
Sennheiser CX 180 Earphones
  • Great quality audio. Well balanced between bass and treble. Best quality driver.
  • Comfortable ear buds make Noise Cancellation a charm. Just select the right size as per your ear canals.
  • The sound quality is great with not too much of bass and very good noise cancellation. Awesome for journeys and daily use.
  • Excellent bass for a earphone of such size. Brilliant ambient noise cancellation to enjoy pure music.
  • The cords are too thin so tangle easily and so I'm worried about their life!
