Shame on you, Sennheiser!

So since my IPOD earphones busted, the Sennheiser ones I ordered from the States finally arrived.

I had already read reviews so I sort of had an idea of what to expect...but I still wanted to know for myself anyway...

And in any case they were a very cheap $13USD...compared to here where the same model - CX-300 - are selling for $100AUD!

Let me say, I am SO RELIEVED I did not pay any more for them...at a standstill they are okay, the sound is a little tinny but the slightest movement of the wire and it is like someone is tapping a microphone in your ears or there is a blustery wind blowing through a microphone...a reviewer quite aptly stated..."they are just like airplane earphones"...

definitely if your IPOD earphones break just get a new pair...being such a Germanophile, I am so disappointed that my first experience with this much reputed German brand was such a non-event.

And never again will I be so cheap and neglect my ears...I notice good audio is just too important to me having grown up on quality European sound...it's not possible to not notice BAD SOUND! :p

Looks like you'll have to sit very still for some 'serious listening' - no bopping about like the ipod adverts (!) So when are you going to post about your angel encounter eh? And what's with all the angels hanging out on the rail networks?
