Sennheiser CX-550 Style II IEMs - User Review

Background

So, my venerable Sennheiser CX-300s bit the dust a week ago (it's actually just the 3.5mm jack, I'll probably get it repaired at some point) and I was looking for some replacements....

Well I've been impatient and ordered the CX-550s from PlayTrade, so hopefully they'll be up to scratch - I'll post again when I have them :)

Thanks for the suggestion - it seems like they're on a par with the CX-300s from some reviews, which isn't what I'm looking for - I'm after a noticeable quality shift from the CX-300s without paying...

Ideally, I don't want to buy from outside of the UK, shipping times are generally pretty slow and prices are inflated - some people sometimes read "" as "$" - so I'm looking for something under...

It seems that I can't find a UK distributor for either the iM-590s, the RE0s or the Hippo VBs, so I think those are out of the picture.

I have however found what I think could be a bit of a steal,...

There is a tiny (and I do mean tiny) amount of hiss on it, but that's more the source than the desk itself I think. The EQ is good, you've got +/- 15dB on 12kHz, 2.5kHz and 80Hz (Hi, Mid and Lo) so...

Well, I've got my CX300's - and I'm very very impressed. The bass is more defined than the EX-71's and the top end is more controlled. They also make a better seal with your ear so more outside noise...
