Decent sound, don't spend more than $30

Donald W., Newegg
16 May 2014
  • Summary: Wow, the MSRP on these was $70? I paid $28 - must have been my lucky day. These were decent headphones - I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair since I use my headphones in the gym and while mowing the lawn.
  • Pros: Acceptable sound Decent lifespan
  • Cons: Highs were a little tinny Right headphone went kaput after 2 years of use

Dreadful cable, solid otherwiise

Anonymous, Newegg
1 March 2013
  • Summary: They are quality things, but the nightmare inducing cable drives my opinion drives my opinion far down. Simply because of the troublesome cable, I wouldnt recommend paying more than around 40USD on these, or if youre going to be moving much. Luckily they are often on sale for some amount it appears.
  • Pros: Quality pair. Other than the cord, these are pretty welll worth the full price. Great sound, including the bass, which is nothing amazing, but pretty good for what they are.
  • Cons: Then we get to the cable. Oh the cable. It was a nightmare. Every time I stored them, they woulld find a way to tangle themselves. Heck Id place them on a desk and it would at least be a pain to retrieve. The rubber sleeve was notably longer the wiring, which is what lead to the the constant tang...

Noise ISOLATING

Jeffrey M., Newegg
9 June 2011
  • Pros: Not bad sound. Fit is OK but my ears hurt after having something stuck in them for a long period of time.
  • Cons: According to Sennheiser these are "noise isolating" not "noise canceling" as Newegg claims. Noise canceling would imply a sensor and active electronics. These simply fit tight into the ear cannel to block outside sound.

So So

basil m., Newegg
1 June 2011
  • Summary: For the price I think I would have liked to purchase something else. I use ear-buds for commuting on the bus to get to school, walking through downtown, and general laptop use. I'm finding these 'buds to only be worth using while I'm stationary on my laptop, or on the bus.
  • Pros: Decent sound, long cord, carrying case, lightweight, self-volume control, fits in ear well.
  • Cons: The cord has terrible memory problems, it seems near impossible to straighten it out after coiling. Partly because it's in a single housing, instead of two, and partly because it is super light and just doesn't have weight to straighten itself out with. The ear-buds themselves have no insulation ...

Great sound quality, breaks quick

AMG, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the third pair of Sennheiser's I've had (the second pair being CX280). You cannot fault the sound quality on these headphones, they are amazing. However, every pair has had one headphone that has just stopped working.

Nothing special

R. Bhasin, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought these about a week or so ago, and they're fine, but already they're losing low end quality. The bass isn't as thumping as it was when I bought it, and when you set the volume slider higher up, the sound loses clarity. On a positive note, though, they're pretty comfortable.

  • Excerpt: Намучался общением с производителем (не хотят слышать о проблемах), с продавцом (не хотели возвращать стоимость), затягивали с заключением СЦ (в последний день по Закону о ЗПП выдали заключение). Бардак. не советую связываться с данным производителем и магазином Ситилинк.
  • Pros: Наличие регулятора громкости
  • Cons: Сильно путается провод, звук стал пропадать из-за провода у штекера

  • Excerpt: ничего примечательного в качестве звука нет, ждал большего
  • Pros: изготовлены качественно - уже пару лет далеко не самого бережного отношения, а работают как новые
  • Cons: ужасный регулятор громкости - звук переключается огромными скачками, да к тому же на разный уровень в разных наушниках!
