Sorry for my english!
OMG. CX400 TOPPED my list in my comparative review here, even compared with the hyped budge and expensive audiophile headphones in here, and I still couldn't find anything that beats them! Is there any way you could resurrect the CX400? Rewire them? Or did you drop them in the sewer like I did my CX300?
I don't know where you can get an authentic CX400 today ... anything available in the market is almost guaranteed to be fake. I'm buying another CX400 using Amazon Japan through Tenso, but it's from the marketplace so I'm still not sure. But I can compare what I get with my authentic one and see if it's genuine.
The closest to compete with the CX400 is the CX300 which is also discontinued but its rebranded counterpart is the Creative EP-630 and it's still available directly from Amazon so that's guaranteed to be genuine. Still, the CX300 is no match for the CX400. The CX300 sounds muddy compared to the CX400, and the CX400 has significantly better (more, fuller, punchier) bass.
Don't get the E10 you will regret it. I haven't tried the rest of the headphones you listed.
