I got the white CX1's which would be my least desired option. Oh well, luck of the draw. I got what I paid for so I have no venom toward Massdrop or this drop in general. What I do feel bad about is how poorly these phones sound. Thin, tinny and shallow. I was amazed that Sennheiser put their respected name on these crappy headphones. I have some old Skullcandy phones that cost less and sound better. The only thing the CX1s have going for them is low impedance that makes them sound louder than many other phones. I ended up dropping these in a desk drawer at work to use with my lap top from time to time.
I then bought some Soundmagic E50's and was very pleased. So much better sound than the Sennheisers (or Skull Candies for that matter) for only about $17 dollars more than I paid for these phones. I'd love to see MD do a blue box drop with the Soundmagic options; E10, E50 and E80!
I definitely agree with you. Its really disappointing that Sennheiser is selling this kind of crappy products, I expected much better. I got the CX 1 tried it and tossed it(I have much better cheaper ones) Then my g/f got the CX 2.00 I listened to them and just a tad better. Better sound definition and bass is slightly present, but I.M.O. still lacking, not worth it. I don't know about the CX 5.00, but I dont think much should be expected either. Oh well...
