One Side Of The Earphone Cable Is Longer Than The Other

Some ear buds models (like the CX 300-II) feature cables where one side of the cable is longer than the other. These are called "asymmetrical" cables and is a deliberate design by Sennheiser.

The longer side of the cable goes behind the neck to the other side of the head and into the ear so instead of having a two cables hang in front of a user in a "Y" configuration an asymmetrical configuration only has one single cable that is off to the side where it is out of the way.
