Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"But for the CX-400II Sennheiser has apparently opted for the worst of all possible combinations in designing and making these cables."
_
"But it only becomes absolutely unacceptable and intolerable on the individual cables from the Y-split to the ear bud itself."
_
"The cord and connector feel so flimsy."
_
"Cable is veeery flimsy."
_
"Unfortunately the cables and attachment points seems extremely flimsy on those, and they always kept breaking after about a year or two."
_
"The cord connection is long enough that it easily reaches my pillow from the stool with length leftover."
_
"The build quality of the earphones seems to be of high standard and the cables seem rubbery and robust enough."
_
"The cable comes with a built-in volume slider, which is a nice bonus, and since it is so small, it hardly adds any weight to the cord."
_
"The length of the cord (1.2m) is perfect and does not require any extensions whatsoever (woohoo!"
_
"I ended up stop using them and instead bought the Shrure SCL2 which are made in Mexico with a thick cord and sound great."

"The sound and fit are high quality and would recommend to anyone! "

Price

Price:
"I ordered these as an inexpensive set of earphones that if I lost them or damaged them I wouldn't care too much."
_
"I wish they had the in-line volume control, but you can't have everything for this good price :)"
_
"While not the best earbuds money can buy, these are lovely earbuds for the $40 range."
_
"Still, for the price it's hard to complain."
_
"They sound very good with songs that have bass, but then sound kinda cheap with rock instrumentals vocals."
_
"These earphones are good for the price, not hifi but for the price they're just fine (I've found that for great sound earphones you have to expend 90 USD or more)."
_
"For the price, this turned out to be a great buy!"

Quality

Quality:
"The sound quality is mediocre at best."
_
"I would not recommend these to anyone who likes quality sound."
_
"I recently purchased these because my CX 500s were chewed up by my cat and I needed a replacement , I thought the 400II were a step up, they in fact are not, the CX 500s have waaaay more bass , the 400II have decent mids and highs but almost no bass , i listen to alot of electro house , deep house , prog trance and dub step and the 400ii cracked and distorted on the bass the CX 500s are about the same price and better sound quality , plus these are not as good as the in box ipod ear buds in terms of sound, they fit nice, but also do not come with as many ear fittings as the cx 500s , please spend the extra $2 on the CX 500s , i promis i am saving you the disappointment"
_
"The sound quality is not that great."
_
"These are the first I have owned that are very comfortable, great quality sound (no too much high, mid, or bass, a nice balanced sound) and not expensive."
_
"While the sound quality is just fine, you have to sit perfectly still and not let ANYTHING touch the cables."
_
"Build quality seemed very good."
_
"The sound quality is mediocre at best."
_
"Very good quality ear buds."
