No earlobe-tugging or head tilting required - they do as they&rsquo;re told. It&rsquo;s probably something to do with the shape: the tip isn&rsquo;t very long and doesn&rsquo;t burrow deep into your ear canals. The bulbous shape of the body makes the most of your conchae (which, FYI, isn&rsquo;t the thing they passed around in <em>Lord of the Flies</em>) so there&rsquo;s little wriggling.</p> <p>Build quality is solid enough. They&rsquo;ll survive your average commute as long as you don&rsquo;t use them as a lasso. There&rsquo;s no flat cabling to prevent tangles, nor braided wire for durability, though. The buds themselves have a mix of glossy and matte plastic &ndash; divided with the shape of a lightning bolt! &ndash; otherwise these are about as conventional as in-ears get. You don&rsquo;t get an inline remote, but at this price we wouldn&rsquo;t expect one.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sennheiser CX 475 review" alt="Sennheiser CX 475 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_5092.JPG?1387013204" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Sennheiser CX 475 review" alt="Sennheiser CX 475 review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Sennheiser%20Cx475_2%20copy.jpg?1387013204" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sonically solid </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Then there&rsquo;s the small matter of how they sound, and for the money it&#39;s very hard not to be impressed.
