Excerpt: When I was teaching I was sent on a three week course relating to children with mild learning difficulties, much of the course involved listening to spoken explanations accessed via the course learning web pages.
Pros: Comfortable . Very high sound quality . Durable for more than four years to date .
Summary: (1) BUILT - Ok ,(3/5) the ear pads are very soft. (pro) but it does not hold tightly. (con) (2) SOUND - Bass- It lacks bass. (2.5/5) Mids- Very very good. (4.5/5) Highs- Very good, not too sharp. (4/5) (3)Value for Money- People who like bass don't buy this one.
Summary: Does what you have paid for! Not an audiophile quality but worth the price. Sennheiser always made good products. But there are other companies like Brainwavz or SoundMagic which make audiophile quality products for a much cheaper price tag.
Summary: I have a pair of these in White and have recently bought these in Black. The sound is good and the build quality is reasonable. The pads are beginning to flake badly on the white ones (2 years) - looks like dandruff! - however they still sound great.
Summary: Wanted inexpensive headphones for i-pod that provided a reasonably good sound. These fit the bill perfectly. They are relatively light and comfortable and not bulky. The sound quality whilst not being exceptional is excellent and they provide excellent value for money.
