Default CX 300 or P(M)X 100

Can anyone tell me which do they perfer? I am having trouble deciding between the two. I'll be using them bike riding(I don't want to get hit by a car), cafeteria in school(loud), at home, in the car, and maybe in an airplane.

Currently I have the CX300 and the PX100 (which I think are similar to the PMX100), and I recommend getting both if possible.

The PX100 would be good for bike riding, because you can still hear outside noise (such as the oncoming car) which makes them safer. I use them at the office, because I can still hear the phone ringing, or someone calling out to me.

I use the CX300 when I don't want to hear any background noise. I think they would work well in a noisy cafeteria. However, they are not noise cancelling, so you can still hear some (very little) background noise, but I still find them acceptable. Also, they are far less expensive than actual noise cancelling headphones. I picked these up for $50 from TigerDirect.com.

I'm hoping to receive my CX-300's today. As a late 20 something guy who has been in the (car) audio industry in the past, but not having experienced the headphone/earphone style of sound other than OEM phones, i will be able to provide a noobs view of the Sennheiser's when they arrive.

Ok, finally received the CX-300's this morning.

Observations:

* A beautifully warm, balanced sound, with the midrange very prominant in the soundstage. I understand that the buds take a few hours to "settle in" soundwise, so even at the early stage of listening now, they sound impressive.

* The midbass and bass in general was huge! I had my custom eq set to +2 @ 80hz, which i dialled back to 0 and still had plenty to spare bass wise. So they definately do not lack to lower range frequencies for the bassheads out there.

* Acoustic tracks are wonderfully precise, conveying the "unplugged" feeling of the tracks i listened to.

* A very comfortable fit (had to use the biggest bud covers to get a good seal), light feeling cord and less hassle than the oem cord to get to run down my back to my pocket. May prove to be a little short length wise, but time will tell.

Overall, at this early stage i'm glad i did the research and made this decision. The CX-300's have more than met my expectations.
