  • Summary: Sennheiser is the first “legit” headphone company most people hear of and are generally praised unabashedly by people that lack experience. Well at least that’s what I’ve gotten from in my years in the internet. I’d never been the biggest fan of Sennheiser, mostly because I’d never tried anything in their line above the HD25. Everything under the HD25, to me, performed a bit lackadaisical at retail price, so I thought these hardcore supporters were just uninformed.
  • Pros: Warm midrange, spacious, unoffensive sound sig
  • Cons: Treble can get harsh, a little bit of bass bleed, cable is a bit thin

These are very good quality designed headphones

  • Summary: I lost my previous Sennheiser (£89) which had very good full sound range.I tried the Bose MIE2i which have a 4 Star rating,but they sounded tinny with limited bass range.I found these on Amazon,These are very good quality designed headphones,with chrome metal for most of the bits that would normally be plastic.If you want to listen to your music how it was recorded,then these are the ones to buy...

Fantastic!

  • Summary: I really love these earphones! Having had cheaper earphones before, I could immediately see and feel the difference when opening these ones. They feel robust and very high quality and they look really good too. They come with a good range of ear buds to accommodate different sized ears and different sound outputs and they also have the useful addition of an airline adapter which isn't of huge importance to me..

Seriously fancy in-ear headphones

Melanie Pratt, Amazon

  • Summary: The packaging alone for these Sennheiser CX985 Avant Garde Ear Canal Phones screams quality, as you would expect for earphones from this top notch brand. The phones themselves are beautiful - all solid and glossy. I love the feature that the 3.5mm jack plug can be moved from a right-angled position to straight (I have damaged countless sets of headphones due to the plug being at an awkward angle for what I wished to plug them into).

Really nice headphones

Syd, Amazon

  • Summary: These are great. Have a high-end feel right from opening the box. Nice shape and weight and fitted nicely into my ears. A good range of buds in different size/shape/materials should fit most ears. Comes with a very nice quality carry case. The "remote" control device feels solid and works well. Love the jack that can be set at 90 or 180 degrees. And the sound is fantastic too.

Disappointing for the price

  • Summary: At first glance I was impressed with these earphones. They come in a very attractive box, and there's a sense of quality and luxury about the presentation. The earphones themselves look great - the chrome volume slider and earbud accents are very stylish and there's a nice metallic sheen to the main head of the earbuds. The earphones also come with a nice leather carry case which features a wind-around system to keep the wire tangle-free.

Good 'phones

Russtafarian, Amazon

  • Summary: Absolutely awesome earphones. These look great, and are very comfortable in the ear. I wear during my commute and in the office, so that anywhere between 30mins to 4 hours of constant use, and I've not suffered any aches. I use them with my iPhone 4s, and although its got a handy control on the cable, I wouldn't miss it as I tend to use the phone while i listen to music (use onscreen controls). They feel "strong", not heavy, but I wouldn't recommend standing on them.

High quality, high price

NorfolkBooks "Norfolk Reviewer", Amazon

  • Summary: These in ear phones from Sennheiser are very good. Audio rendition is of a very high quality. Clear, crisp high notes and a sensible even level of bass - better than some bass heavy competitors. Nice little touches with a carrying case (a bit fiddly but protects these whilst in the bottom of my bag which is full of files and papers). Alternative sizes for the tips is another plus.

great sound - but don't quite work for me

Don Panik, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a fan of Sennheiser and have owned a lot of their products - in fact I am currently using a pair of HD480s that are 25 years old and seen 1000s of hours use. Not sure about these ear buds though. I expected clear balanced and smooth sound from these ear buds, and that is exactly what they deliver across a range of music. The fact that Sennheiser supply alternative buds that enhance the bass response is impressive, and the quality of finish is excellent.

Fantastic clean sound and comfortable design

Asphodelia, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a fan of Sennheiser and have owned various sets of headphones over the years, but never something in this price bracket, due to the fact that I subject my headphones to such brutal treatment that I couldn't really justify the investment. I can now see that I have been missing out. These headphones are GOOD. I listen to different types of music, from rock to instrumental.
