stay away from these headphones

Linda Goldsmith, Amazon
18 July 2014
  • Summary: I was so excited when these headphones turned up, and was gutted when they broke. These were rubbish. After about 3 months use the headphone jack sheared off in my Ipod and i could only get it out with pliers!The remote control would not work with either my ipod or my iphone 5 - wasn;t happy about that. For the money these are being sold at I would expect the life of the product to be greater than 3 months, as these were only used for approx 1-2 hours a day.

Fall apart

  • Summary: When they work, the sound is pretty good, although wire noise is noticeable. However, the ruggedness / build quality is appalling. I've got through four pairs of these. I had the first three replaced under warranty, but after this last pair stopped working, I've just given up on them. My total ownership time was about 12 months, allowing for delays in getting them replaced. In every case the sound cut out in one or other of the earbuds.

Overated and overpriced

T. Webb, Amazon

  • Summary: Very disappointed with my first Sennheiser experience. I bought these as a replacement for my Denon AHC-560r. I plumped for them as they are in the mid market £100 price point. My expectation was that they would be well built, easy to use and sound awesome. Sennheiser failed to deliver on all three points. Sound quality is no better than a pair of £10 Sony earphones. Build quality is appalling with cheap plastic finishes.

poor quality

  • Summary: I've had several pairs of sennheiser earphones - the 1st died a natural death, the 2nd disintegrated prematurely ( Sennheiser CX 400 II Precision Noise Isolating Ear-canal Phones with Integrated Volume Control - Black - I couldn't be sure this wasn't my fault - the casing came away from the earphone but that might have been my carelessness!) - but had always been very happy with sound quality so was happy to invest in a 3rd pair.

Not worth the price

Ruth, Amazon

  • Summary: Good earphones. But not meant for working out as the earpieces get very slippery with sweat and the cord makes a lot of noise when you run. However, you can buy similar quality earphones for less than half this price. I have used many in-earphones and this is my LEAST favourite - the CREATIVE range is definitely better. The storage bag/box is of very poor design and too bulky.

Enttäuschend

  • Summary: Klang ok aber die Verarbeitung ist wirklich schlecht, der Knickschutz brach nach 3 monaten durch, die Tastensteuerung fürs Iphone funktioniert nur bedingt, Druckpunkt kaum erkennbar, der Tasteblock samit Microphone ist so groß und eckig das ich damit ständig an Kleidung hängen geblieben bin, der Wiederstand ist dann so groß das man Angst hat es reißt ab.

Sound dürftig

Christian Salonicki, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: Der Sound ist deutlich schlechter als bei meinen alten Sennheiser CX55, die damals schon eine Preisklasse unter der der neueren CX880i lagen. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass sämtliche Stöpsel sich nicht so recht anschmiegen wollen an mein Ohr, wie die alten? Nun, sie haben dieselbe Größe und Haptik, der Ohrkanalstöpsel ist aber seltsam versetzt. Trotz vielen Rumprobierens blieb der Sound dürftig. Schade. Übrigens soll die Gestaltung Metall vortäuschen.

Qualität mangelhaft

Avena, Amazon
27 June 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe mich nun doch durchgerungen an dieser Stelle eine Beurteilung abzugeben, nachdem nicht nur meine eigenen Kopfhöhrer, sondern auch die meiner Frau ( selbstredend das gleiche Modell) kaputt gegangen sind. Nach nicht einmal 6 Monaten löste sich der vordere Teil des Steckers ab und blieb in meinem Handy stecken, bei meiner Frau trat ein Kabelbruch auf. Einen Stern gibt es nur aufgrund der überzeugenden Klangqualität und Bedienbarkeit.

nicht überzeugend

Fati, Amazon

  • Summary: + guter Tragekomfort - Sound ist zu schwach und zu leise - Mikrofon ist zu leise - Ohrstöepsel halten nicht (sind alle verloren gegangen) - Fernbedienung hatte Ausetzer - nach 4 Monaten hat sich der rechte Hörer verabschiedet Schade, aber für den Preis kann und muss man besseres erwarten.....
