Tonally flat

We’re told that this is the replacement for the Sennheiser Award-winning CX 300-II, and boy, are we disappointed.

The ultra-affordable price remains and a handy volume control has been added, but the sound is tonally, dynamically and rhythmically flat.

There’s nothing harsh in the delivery, but there’s nothing fun or interesting in it, either.
