Summary: Those who say these headphones disappoint in the sound quality department need to make sure they are using the correct size earpieces and seat them in the ears properly. These need to be pushed slightly into the ear canal. When using the correct earpieces, they will create a good seal.
Pros: +Great sound quality: Punchy bass, good treble, and great clarity throughout the ranges. I'm hearing details/notes in songs that I've never noticed before using cheaper headphones/speakers. +Good build quality +Stylish looks: Typical of most Sennhiser products +Plenty of accessories: Carrying pou...
Cons: -Maybe prone to damage from pulling/snagging on cable, but most headphone are anyways... -Not the best earbuds to use while running/exercising since the cord is a bit stiff and tends to make a bit of noise while moving around.
Summary: I bought this product as I am travelling overseas and I wanted a practical set of earphones that I could use on the aircraft. The phones sound great and block out external noise. Not too much to dislike about the product. They represent great value.
Buy them, good if not better than leading competitors

Excerpt: I purchased these in September of last year via my ex employer, the demised Comet, so have a years experience of the product & also the advantage of having tried so many others during my time with the company (2 years) I'll start with the packaging, a 2 year guarantee sets you in good stead...
Summary: These are the best cans you will find at this price. Warm and detailed sound with the signature bass of the CX400 range. I would not be put off by the negative reviews about build quality, as only after 4 years of daily use has the left earphone started to fade (and I did get sand in them).
Summary: I absolutely rate this product because of its build quality and sound. Sennheiser is a renowned industry brand for professionals. I used to have iBeats by Dr. Dre that came with my phone and within a couple of months they failed. This product is going strong six months on.
