Default Anyone familiar with Sennheiser CX 475?

There is a recentish head-fi review, but the guy says "legidimitly" instead of "legitimately," butchers your/you're a couple times, and erroneously claims these are Best Buy exclusives. Call me a snob but that makes me immediately nervous about the quality of the content.

Anyway, looking for opinions from the abi crowd.

Thanks in advance.

The lower end Senns aren't that popular. if you are thinking about going for the $20 deal I think the xeports on amazon right now might be a better bang for your buck. if you can stretch to the soundmagic E10, thats a good one too.

Thanks for the heads up on the xeports. I have heard quite a few of the lower end Senns but this one is MSRPed more in the middle to mid-low range and is supposedly extra bassy (which isn't particularly a quality I cherish) so it doesn't seem to be representative of other low-end Senn products.

I was hoping for more direct experience.

Also, $35 is a little steep for my workout/carwashing/lawn care earphones. I have a strict limit of $20 for obvious reasons but also thanks for the heads up there. I'm getting a little sick of the lack of warmth in my Shrooms as my regular daily set and might give those a try after reading Martin's review.
