Summary: Brilliant audio quality. Near-noise-cancelling level of padding that manages to remain perfectly comfortable on my head. Easy 5 stars for Sennheiser. Great job, my German friends.
Pros: They might as well be noise-cancelling without the extra bulk. The padding covers more than my entire ear very comfortably and shuts out a great deal of excess noise, allowing me to listen comfortably wherever I am. The clarity is what truly attracted me to them, considering how much I can hear on recordings that I have never heard before, until I got these headphones. I figure if I can discover new parts to songs that I never heard before, that's quality.
Summary: I purchased a set of these headphones to use for gaming about 5 months ago, and they are holding out great. I always had bad luck with headsets, so I bought the Sennheiser EH-150's and a desktop USB microphone, and it was the best thing i could have ever done. The sound quality is phenomenal; you can hear the subtlest of tones. when you play games and watch DVDs, it feels like you are there.
They also cancel a good amount of sound from your environment.
Summary: I have had Sennheiser microphones for over 30 years that are still unmatched in quality...nice to find that, though the prices have come down, the products are still pleasing. I'm using these presently in combination with a Zoom H-2.
Summary: I am a college student who commutes everyday by train which means a lot of noise all the time. If I ever turned up the volume with normal headphones to hear the audio, I would go deaf. So I went to search for a new set of headphones for myself on amazon and found this and ordered it.
Shipping was extremely fast and FREE! I thought that it would take at least 5 days but it came in a day and a half with standard shipping!
Great Balance of Performance, Price and Durability

Excerpt: "...My brother ordered me the Sennheiser EH 150s as a gift over a year ago and they're still going strong. They didn't break the bank (they're currently £16 on Amazon.co.uk), at least not when compared to some of the more up-market professional DJ headphones on offer, and respond well to the beefy guitar tones I use. ~ [ Processing/Quality ] ~ The headphones are lightweight, and give the illusion of being flimsy but are in fact quite rugged. The earpieces ...
Pros: Great consistent sound, long cable, easily adjustable, well - built and well - designed
Cons: May not perform as well in serious professional situations
