Summary: Previously I owned a CX400 and liked it a lot. Now on these, sound quality is great, jack is well made, but couple of issues leave me less than satisfied. I though having sound control on headphones would be nice, but was disappointed.
Summary: Bought these after losing my much loved CX300. Sound quality and build quality are up to the usual high standards but (and I know this is hard to believe) these give me a really sharp electric shock inside one ear - on average I'd guess about once every thirty minutes.
Summary: I bought these about a year ago after my old pair of the same phones fell apart... after a few months of use. I thought that it was me not taking enough care of them so I bought another pair (I actually really care about all my stuff).
Summary: I bought this product because I thought they were better than what I had at the time, and I figured it'd be perfect to buy for the price I got them at. While the bass is good on the earphones, the quality isn't... quality as in singing and all other instruments in a song.
Summary: After ~9 months' use these have bitten the dust. Within a couple of months the volume adjustor had stopped working - unless it was set to max or min then there would be intermittent sound in the left or right earplug.
Summary: Moved up to the 400s because they were much the same price as the trusty 300s I usually buy, no noticeable difference in music quality, although still high compared to competitors as expected.
Good at a bargain price, but better earphones out there...

Summary: Firstly I'll start with a warning. There are literally thousands of fake versions of this product on the Internet and sometimes when something looks to good to be true, the odds are it probably is.
Summary: Being an avid music listener, there hardly goes a day without me spending at least one or two hours listening to my iPod Touch. My previous mobile earphones during the last decade were the Sony EX-series (e.g. MDR-EX71), whose sound quality and isolation I was very happy with.
Real Sennheisers sound good. Wish they lasted as well, too. And there are a lot of fakes around.

Summary: [Update: Reduced the star rating from 5 to 3. They were the genuine article and very good while they lasted (see the original review below). Unfortunately, after eight months of careful and considerate use, the infamous, common fault appeared: the volume and the sound quality of the left earphone...
Summary: Was initially happy with these earphones, but they only lasted around 5 months before the lead started fraying where it connected to the volume control. Then the sound went in the left ear rendering them useless.
