You have a point about it being really commercial. I just find it really annoying that they're often among the most expensive IEMs in the big-box stores leading people to think that they're among the best.


Oh by far not the best - as I said my denon's were better, but by far the easiest to access + they are not hard to wear/find a fit/sleep on either.

I admit that the CX300s are pretty comfortable but the ProAlphas beat it in terms of comfort too. MP4Nation has free shipping worldwide so access is not an issue. I've not listened to the AH-C260s but from what I read the cables seem to be of low quality like the CX300s. Did you have any problems with microphonics when wearing these?

 

It seems that a lot of people (on Amazon) were complaining about them sounding weak and tinny - most likely signs of improper fittings.

Yup the C260's do have a fitting issue (simply due to their bigger-esk housing)

 

That said the wire is thin, and isn't as thick/sticky so to speak as the cx300/500/400II's ones.

 

I don't know how its possible...but my friend who i bought the cx400II's for, has already managed to break the top bit of the iem...as in where the sennheiser logo goes, that sennheiser logo is no longer there.

Some people I have no idea how they treat their things....

LMAO. The cables resist stretching and they aren't particularly flexible either. The strain relief on one of my CX300's earpiece have snapped off from the housing, so they slide up and down the cord. They just aren't built very well. Considering how the whole thing's OEM-made, I'm not too surprised.
