Sennheiser has created a music phone friendly version of its CX 300 earphones. Claiming to be the first quality in-ear headphones to be made available with a 2.5mm headphone jack, they boast improved sound quality for music phones.

The CX 300s feature an advanced, miniaturised driver, designed to give smooth, acoustically correct in-ear operation, with an extended response of 18Hz-21kHz.
