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 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: 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.
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.
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.
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: 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).
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.
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...
