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. Here are the cons: - It is a slider, so no way to adjust volume with any precision. - Secondly, it controls sound on headphones, i.e. not on the device, so the only option to have it useful is to max sound on device and then use slider.
Summary: Expensive --------- ***** Loudness --------- *** Bass ---------- *** 1\2 Treble --------- **** Noise Isolation ----- ***** Worth money ----- ** overall -------*** Guys don't waste money on this ,,For this price tag you can go for Shure or bose headphone and klipsch headphone,, I have already tried all of them...
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. Its not enough to make me stop using them but it's not so easy to chill-out and relax when you get tasered. For the record, I am using an old Compag nc6400 when this happens.
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. Personally, I prefer my other earphones, but for bass, I prefer these.
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. With that thought in mind, I felt I had taken a gamble in buying these In-Ear's (IE's) at the bargain price of [...] when the stated RRP was [...], so I wasn't expecting big things when the parcel arrived from Amazon.
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 quickly deteriorated. I have now replaced them with Amazon-special Klipsch X1 headphones at half the cost.
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. On the positive side, they were comfortable to wear and the sound was decent but not quite as amazing as I had expected. I have now replaced them with soundmagic p11s which put these sennheisers to shame and are much better value for money.
Summary: I bought this earphones, twice. Once from amazon marketplace, and the other one from the authorized retailer. While the authentic one delivers a very good sound, the cheap fake is a nightmare. So before you buy one of these, please be careful. Google "fake sennheiser cx400 II precision" and read those articles that appear.
