Sennheiser’s been doing a roaring trade with its CX300 sets, which borrow heavily from its pro range but don’t require the sale of a limb to purchase. Trouble is, ’Pod pickers have only had a choice of black or grey Sennheiser sets. That of course won’t do, so, following the lead of pretty much every other accessory maker, it’s brought out a white version (how’s that for originality).Inside, the technology’s the same, offering a huge leap in quality from the standard Apple ’phones. The secret, aside from some impressive electronics, is the soft silicone ear adaptors that ensure the rest of the world is kept out while all the deep bass stays in. Sennheiser even claims the sets improve battery life because their superior efficiency drains less power from the player.
