Found a great bargain in these CX300 alternatives.

When my card wasn't maxed I bought these at Buy.com and they are quite good. They're cheap enough. They sound a lot like the CX300s but have brighter highs and midrannge which can be toned down by an EQ. The bass, if someone thought the bass to be bloated and muddy on the CX300s, on these it's the opposite, quite balanced. The sound is reminiscent of the JVC Air Cushions but more like the Air Cushions and CX300s combined.

I didn't realize they come in all those different colors when I bought mine. They do sound very good. They are likely made by the same company that Sennheiser contracts for their CX300s.

Better midrange, better highs and balenced bass.
So in other words it's better than a CX300.

I don't think so. These have their own unique sound and the midrange and highs are much brighter than the CX300s. That isn't to say the midrange and highs are better than the CX300s. These sound very much like the JVC Air Cushions and the CX300s combined. The bass, though, is milder and less bloomy than the CX300s are claimed to have. I personally love the sound of the CX300s...real ones...and find nothing at all bloated or bloomy about their bass. If a person gave them half a chance and just chilled out to some smooth, quality converted Jazz, with the CX300s, they'd find a great deal to like about them. These fujis, however, are an alternative for people who may want something similar sounding to the CX300s but with a different bass sound.
