design your own adidas adidas CX 310 Originals earphones deliver impressive sound
Sennheiser is a well respected brand in the area of headphones and earphones, and adidas is one of the biggest brands in the area of fashion and style, so it makes sense that when the two come together, you get a real nice looking pair of earphones that also sounds great.
I recently got a chance to try out the adidas CX 310 Originals earphones (or more officially, the Sennheiser CX 310 Originals High Quality Noise Isolating Ear Canal Headphones with Bass Driven Sound), one of the latest audio offerings from this Sennheiser/adidas collaboration, and found the experience very enjoyable.
I wore these headphones in various environments, including in a very loud gym, and I can say that even in the loudest environments, they do a great job of blocking out the world. This is due to their great noise cancelling ability, as well as the overall high quality sound that they delivered.
One key feature on these headphones is the bass delivery, which was quite impressive when you consider how small the delivery system is. These little earbuds pack a hell of a punch in the bass arena, and those who aren’t big bass fans might want to steer clear. But if you love bass and music that features it heavily, this is one set of earphones that will do that kind of music justice. And it’s not just the bass that sound good, as the mid range and higher notes come through in high quality, too.
The CX 310 Originals’ 3.9 foot cord is designed to help reduce tangles, but that sort of thing still cropped from time to time, as you can never truly eliminate it,
especially during heavy physical activity at the gym or elsewhere.
The earphones also come with a 2 year warranty, so if by some random chance they do break, you’re covered.
Included with the CX310 Originals are a high quality pouch that can be used to transport the headphones more safely, and three sets of earbuds (small, medium and large sizes), so that everyone’s ears can get a custom fit. The earbuds are very comfortable when placed in the ear, and don’t start to hurt the ear like some earbuds can after being used for a while.
Since they do block out sound so well, be very careful with the CX 310 Originals if you’re going to be running outdoors. Some people might still think that even $70 is way too much to spend on a set of earphones, and will be happy with their $10 earbuds, but this is not the audience that Sennheiser is targeting. They are going after people who know the difference between cheap and good products, and are willing to pay a little more.
I recognize that a large number of people will never spend this much on any set of headphones, and perhaps they’re the smart ones, but many people are willing to splurge if it means they can enjoy their music a little better, and the top notch bass and overall sound of this set make it something worth considering for yourself or an audiophile in your family.
If you’re looking for a pair of earphones that are somewhere between the cheapo variety and the ridiculously priced models that can cost hundreds, and want to get some high quality audio that blocks out the world while you listen to your music, the adidas CX310 Originals are worth investigating, especially if you also want to look stylish while enjoying your tunes. The price will turn off some potential buyers, but those who do spring for these earphones won’t be disappointed in what they hear.
And if you want the Sennheiser sound and are willing to live without the adidas logos and fashionable blue and white look,
there are other models like the CX400 or CX300 that are available for between $30 and $50.
