Sennheiser CX 280 review

The Sennheiser CS 280s are replacements for the Award-winning CX300-II Tested at £29

Our Verdict

Very disappointing, the sound is dull and flat


  • Affordable
  • volume control


  • 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.
