Sennheiser CX250: Brief Impressions - Page 3

post #31 of 32

just returning from your CX280 review thread.

 

remember my CX200II ?

I'd like to post that i experienced the exactly same thing with my CX200II. To add, it could be because my very novice ear at that time to judge, or was the poor inserting skill, remembering it was my first IEM. Pls notice i did not do anything but partially burn during trytosell-auditions to friends.

It was very disapointing impression that i thought it was fake, infact i'm able to sold it to my friend and just bought it back for guilty feeling, since he was also quite dissapointed.

 

mids & high are correct just less bright/open vs MX760, the bass are too much but i could push down by eq.

 

the only complaint now is the soundstage that i'm expecting less centered, less blended, more 3D, means larger soundstage required, or it is just common for IEM? Perhaps you could give some comment in compare to CX280?

 

thanks for linking me to this thread.

I'm kind of glad I'm not the only one who had early issues with fit.  I can easily get a fit with the TripleFi and other UEs, and yet I had a problem with these (and the CX280).  I'm still am and always will be a novice.

 

Comparing the CX150/200/250 to the CX280 is a bit like comparing the CX300 to the CX95/550: it's a solid improvement all around.  Bass is dialed back, with lower frequency response tightened up nicely.  Midrange is much smoother and clearer, with better linearity and less dips and peaks.  Treble is the biggest difference; the CX280 has much better detail and articulation, and better extension as well.  Much like the CX200 series though a proper fit is crucial to avoid (or at least eliminate most of the) harshness.  Of course I should again mention how much better the soundstage is - much larger, more open and spacious when compared to the CX200.
