    I've read somewhere that this headphone won't fit when the bumper is on.

    Sound quality wise, they're pretty "warm" sounding -> bass / low mid heavy

    I ordered a pair of these the other day, they still have not come yet. Kind of pissed they wont work with the bumper but there are adapters out there you can get. Can anyone recommend an adapter?

    I heard they wont fit with a Bumper either, and yeah could always use an adapter but who wants all that extra wire and bulk near the jack.

    @darkhunter139 did you order them through Closeouts Master on Amazon? I am really suspicous about wether or not CloseoutsMaster is legit

    Yeah the orders are fulfilled by Amazon so that means that Amazon actually stores the product at their warehouse and handles the shipping. So it is 100% safe.

    They work perfectly with my phone, not got a bumper on it though. Though I see no reason to suggest why they wouldn't work with a bumper on, the jack is quite long.

    I always thought the fullfilled by Amazon meant only they stand by and offer up the Free Super saver shipping, if its coming from Amazons warehouse then im sure they are legit. Do you know this for sure?

    100% sure, amazon emailed me my shipping notification and tracking number. Here is what it says on the website about it.

    Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service we offer sellers that lets them store their products in Amazon's own warehouses, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these items. Something we hope you'll especially enjoy: FBA items qualify for FREE Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime.

    No I ordered the white bumper from Apple and it is back ordered until July 16th so I will probably get the headphones first. The CX300 II's actually look like they will have a better shot at fitting so i'd go with them.

    I have the Sennheiser CX-300B (purchased from Amazon) and they do not fit with the bumper on. They will not even plug in half way, no connection whatsoever. Not sure if they are the same as the 300 II.

    I also have the Sennheiser MX460's and they do fit with the bumper on. The 460's have a narrow plug (probably designed to work with the original iphone). If you can get a picture of the plug you can probably tell if it will work with the bumper..if it's a right angle plug then the rubber part (before the metal is exposed) has to be very narrow to fit with the bumper on. Most probably;y will not work.

    Hi there. I use the Sennheiser CX 300 II earphones on an iPhone 4 with a bumper. Fits without any problem at all. I'd take a photo, but the only camera I have is on my iPhone.
