An all-around great product that's among the best in its category. You'll almost certainly be happy.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

For under $40, the CX 300 IIs provide good sound quality, with strong, but not overpowering, bass. Despite their low price, these earbuds also come three sets of swappable earplugs to help you get the best fit. While some users might find the asymmetrical cable slightly awkward, these are still a great option if you want to replace the earbuds that came with your portable media player, and don't want to spend as much as you did on the player itself.
