    Hi

    Does anybody know if the Sennheiser CX 300 In-ear Headphones are compatible with the iPhone, without using the adapter?

    According to the Apple Store it says:

    "Sennheiser CX300 Ear-Canal Headphones for iPhone and iPod"

    At this link:

    http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APP.../wa/RSLID?find=cx300&rs=newest&revw=TQ085LL/A

    But the iPhone is not listed as part of the compatible items..

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    NOT compatible without an adapter. I know, because I've got some.

    ummm... there are a lot of generic eBay iPhone Headsets that use the same drivers as the CX300 as Sennheiser doesnt make them. :D

    Does anyone know whether the CX400s or CX500s fit, or is the plug the same as the CX300?

    They fit just fine in my iPhone. The rubber on the plug is soft enough to just bunch up when you put it into the jack. Hasn't slipped out or anything.

    Oh, really?

    Well that's great. Does your's also have the L-jack stick or a straight jack-stick?

    Straight plug. I haven't seen a set of CX300 with the L-jack.

    Yep. Bought them at Circuit City. Doing a search on google for CX300's seems to indicate that there are more than one model with the same name. Very confusing.

    Mine have got the L jack. Bought from Play.com.
    Apparently there are some moody ones out there - with straight jacks :eek:

    Are the cx300 compatible with iPhone without adaptor

    They are compatible they have a smaller than normal L shaped headphone jack that plugs straight into the iPhone.
