Pros: I nabbed these for $15.99 on sale and I haven't regretted it. Great quality for the price. Tune these Sennheisers however you want because hey come with a completely flat EQ.
Cons: These are not width adjustable at all. I have owned mine for 6 months and I use them every day and I must keep them wrapped around a "head size" box to stretch them out. If I leave them sitting on my desk for even half a day they will feel very uncomfortable wen I put them on.
Excerpt: Considering the price, I was amazed by the quality of these headphones. You hear all the nuances in the music with such clarity! As a former opera singer, I really appreciate that. Mind you, they are not noise canceling.
Summary: I hook these up to my Amplifii FX100 guitar effects pedal and send music and guitar through them at the same time. (music comes from cheap android tablet via bluetooth to the effects pedal) The music comes through great and the guitar just sounds fantastic.
Pros: Good clean sound. Balanced. Good reproduction.
Cons: Not as good as some on sound, reputation is only reason I bought them, well now I know. Cheap enough to give to my grandson, he will not notice the difference. Maybe they will fit his smaller head better, small adult head will hurt after a while, could use some acetone to melt them wider, just to...
Summary: Inline controls would be nice, but can't complain for the price.
Pros: I have three pairs of these now, always pick another set up when I see them for fifteen. Punchy, deep bass, and great sound isolation from how tight they push against the ear. You can listen to these at high volume in public (e.g. on the plane) and no-one around will be able to tell what you're l...
Cons: Getting through about 2 hours can be tough, eventually these hurt my ears. Where the tightness can be a good thing for up to an hour of private listening, it becomes a literal pain when trying to get through a long movie.
Excerpt: I purchased these for several purposes, and the Sennheisers did not disappoint. 1. I'm the bass player, and often rehearse in my media room with an effects box, and an MP3 player. Because it's hard to get that booming bass sound through most headphones when another signal was coming in, these helped...
