Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Fit

Fit:
"If they sound terrible, or tinny to you, they are probably not fitting properly in your ears."
_
"FIRST PAIR IMPRESSIONS:Pros:Perfect fit for my hard to please, weird ear canalsVery shallow profile, so the don't protrude far from the ears, so with a soft pillow, you can lie down with them inSound was full and weightyVery detailed but gentle highsBass was strong and authoritativeCons:With some bass heavy content the low end could get a little fatiguing, requiring some EQThe cable has the dreaded stethoscope effectI'm not sure I like the angled connector; it seems like a mechanical stress pointThe first set had a great sound."
_
"I have used ear buds only occassionally because my past experiences have been bad sound and uncomfortable fit."
_
"So, in summary, the sound quality is merely ok, but the fit is bad, and the tangling tendency is terribly."
_
"Unlike the $40 Klipsh pair I had before, which were long and narrow and fit snugly in the ear, these have a terrible tendency to fall out at the lightest tug."
_
"Great fit, just changed the soft ends to fit my ear and I can barely tell they are there (even when I roll on my side on the pillow) Sound quality is exceptional, and the best part is the sound never gets into the open air and wakes my wife."
_
"Awesome clarity and bass right out of the box .. No burn in needed as others said ..very comfortable in the ear .. Good foam at the headphone and perfect fitting and noise cancellation ..."
_
"good fit."

Quality

Quality:
"The sound quality was better than the previous earbuds but the construction quality seems as not as good as CX 300 II."
_
"I find the sound quality to be pretty good, but not great."
_
"This is my second pair of the cx475s, and the sound quality is extraordinary, but they are not durable at all."
_
"However, the construction quality is not very good, I lost the sound of L side within 2 months."
_
"I even tried using my previous rubber tips from my previous Sennheiser earbuds, but the sound quality is still horrible and from time to time the tips would just stay in my ears when I'd pull the headphones out!"
_
"The bud quality is also horrible as it is made out of some cheap hard rubber that starts hurting after about 30 minutes of use."
_
"Fantastic quality for an amazing price."
_
"Good quality, as good as The cx500"
_
"Great fit, just changed the soft ends to fit my ear and I can barely tell they are there (even when I roll on my side on the pillow) Sound quality is exceptional, and the best part is the sound never gets into the open air and wakes my wife."
_
"Good sound quality."
_
"In no way was I disappointed by the CX475- the sound quality is excellent, and although it touts bass-driven sound as a major feature, it isn't overwhelming, and it plays the whole spectrum of sound crisply and without distortion (a previous reviewer mentioned that live recordings weren't as natural-sounding as they could be, but I haven't observed any problems so far)."

"To top it all, when I posted this negative feedback to seller, Sound Systems, they called me directly requesting me to erase the negative feedback, blaming it on Amazon for an inaccurate product description."
_
"For the price they are awesome only a couple complaints as far as sound (slightly cloudy and alittle bit more seperation would make them superb) and not a whole lot of sound cancelation with the ear buds besides that the bass inst overpowering nor is it too muddy if your looking for something cheap id go for these"

_
"Great fit, just changed the soft ends to fit my ear and I can barely tell they are there (even when I roll on my side on the pillow) Sound quality is exceptional, and the best part is the sound never gets into the open air and wakes my wife."
