Smile Opinions on the Sennheiser CX 270 with Cowon J3

Hey guys

I recently bought myself a Cowon J3 and am astounded by the sound quality, especially the bass. I listen to a lot of hardcore-genre music, hence a lot of deep bass parts. I have set up my EQ to get that deep "pounding" bass, and I love it.

There's only one problem though; I can't really enjoy that audio quality without a proper set of IEMs, however I'm not willing to spend a great deal of money on something that, knowing me, I'm going to break in < 1 year. After doing some browsing, my eye has settled on the Sennheiser CX 270 In-ear phones. They seem ideal: cheap(ish), apparently great bass, and they come from a renowned name.

So, I guess my question is, are they suitable? Is there any flaws I'm overlooking?
I know It's only about $50 altogether, but I'd just like to be sure.

Thanks in advance!

Sennheiser is great and all, but I don't think much of their cheap IEMs.

Consider these or look at some of the other threads that talk about cheap IEMs (there are many in this section).

Thanks for the reply, Satellite. I see you have a pair of the NE-6s. Is the bass powerful and driving? Also is the background noise isolation on them as bad as some reviews say?

They have plenty of bass and relatively good isolation. I listened to music with them while mowing the lawn once.

If you can pay a little more, you can't go wrong with the Hippo VB for your intended use. They have some of the best bass around, particularly at that price point.
