Quality of the earphones and their design
Sennheiser CX 180 are a stylish yet compact looking earphones which are very portable and come with 1.2 meters of cable which is really nice and a good feature as they can be used extensively resisting some wear and lots of tear along the course of the usage.
They are pretty comfortable with a peculiar finger contoured design with few ear adapters or plugs which cancel the surrounding noise but they do not have inbuilt mics which is not a such a big issue as the quality of the CX 180 is very nice and well built and one of the best among the other competitions in this price point.
You can easily adjust the earphones to fit well within your ear to cancel out the noise in your surroundings and the wires seem thin but are pretty durable and the pair of earphones can be folded up easily and snuck into your pants or can be worn when exercising or jogging without the plugs sliding off your ears.

Music Quality and Audio Performance
Talking about the sound and audio quality these audio pieces delivers very high quality sound and perform really well when listening to any genre of music and one can experience good highs and lows in the audio because of the bass driven sound in them also the volume on these things are very loud because of 110 decibels pressure level and are one of the loudest in earphones across similar prices.
The audio remains clear when listening at high volume but gets slightly distorted when going above 80% or 90% volume but that is understandable and the CX 180 seem to deliver promisingly until these levels are reaches as other earphones in this category might not even be able to deliver such quality at a high volume sound.
The technology used to build these earphones eliminate the peripheral noise and work well in reducing external sound,the bass driven acoustic sound on which listening to vocals is not an issue and the mids and lows are considerably detailed with some good bass when listening to genres like electronic or pop but you can easily use them to listen to any music as they have a balanced delivery system and can be played along with or customized with the equalizer settings to make it suit your specific needs.
