Pioneer SE-CX8 In-Ear Headphones-Silver

3 out of 5 eggs great sounding clunkers 07/22/2015

This review is from: Pioneer SE-CX8 In-Ear Headphones-Silver

Pros: Overall excellent sound on the warm, lush side. Deep bass. Very well built. Nice packaging.

Cons: Large. Heavy. Thick cord. No shirt clip. Somewhat uncomfortable in the ear.

Other Thoughts: They came in the most elaborate packaging I've ever seen. It's a work of art, really, but that's not what I'm paying for. I really want to like these earbuds. The sound is excellent and the build quality is excellent. I think they might actually survive more than a year or two at my desk, which is where I will use them 100% of the time for my work up to 10 hours a day.

The sound is rich and balanced and the bass augmentation really does work if you want it to. Otherwise, they sound perfectly fine for the $50-70 street price.

My problem with these earbuds is that they are heavy and large. They come without a shirt clip and after an hour or so my ears started to ache. I rigged up a hair clip on the cable to clip to my shirt but after five or six hours my ears start to ache from the weight. Also, I don't think the tips that come with them are that comfortable. They are shaped like a bucket, flat on the end, and they cause some soreness, too. I tried some round silicone tips from some cheap buds I had and that helped a lot but they would keep falling off in my ear because the mounting hole was too large.

Bottom line - Good sound and should be durable but expect to tweak them to get good fit and comfort. Probably not suitable for sports or extensive travel.

DELL Latitude E5430 Notebook Intel Core i3 2.3GHz 14
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Like new machine
Samsung SSD
Not too much bloatware
Very well built
Everything works!

Cons: None but see below

Other Thoughts: I could find no evidence my laptop was ever used by anyone. I have now tested everything possible and the only glitch is the back USB port will not read a particular foot pedal that I use for work, but the pedal does work on all the other ports, and anything else I plug into this port works fine. Dell is known for glitchy USB management (KVM switches especially), so I am not knocking an egg for this. For the $340 I paid, this was a phenomenal deal.

Pros: Belkin continues with 100% reliability in my experience.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have about 20 ethernet cables with about 15 being Belkin. The Belkin's have always been trouble-free.
