Default Sennheiser CX300 v JVC Marshmallow?

Hi,

Well its all in the title. Which ones are better. I have the Sennheiser CX300 but wondered whether to get them off here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JVC-Marshmallo...QQcmdZViewItem

I live in Uk so its ok. Just double the price for roughly a US Price. eg. $13

Also what cord length do they have and what shape cable (Y,J?)

The cord length is just about 4ft and they have the Y cord.

The Senns. The Mallows are a great value, but I paid $9.99usd at Circuit City when they were on sale. At their MSRP you would be better off getting the CX300's of of eBay.

You should really search the headphone forum, as I told you in the PM... everything has been said about the Mylars already...

X3 = little bass, much treble, a bit more clarity
XB = more bass, less fatiguing treble, a bit less clarity

Both come with the exactly same accessories.

For my tastes, definitely the XB. I can't live without a proper amount of bass.

I wish they had a deal XB + X3 for say 25% off the regular price apart. Then people like me who can't decide might buy 'em both.

I was deciding between these two, I got some senns for 15$ of ebay and I love them.
