Bright, Detailed, Good for the Price

  • Excerpt: Sound: Out of the package, the sound was unimpressive, with a boxy and emphasized midrange, and literally no bass. I found that the foam inside the cushions appeared to be installed upside down. The inside of the cushions contains a gray outer foam, with black foam in the center. I noticed the black inner foam bottom perimeter was just touching the bottom perimeter of the pad cover screen. This left a lot of black foam extending above the pad screen/mesh inside the cup.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Low Sound Leakage, Neutral Clear Sound
  • Cons: Bass Light, Bulky Plug, Poor Isolation, Tacky Color Scheme

Really Nice

  • Excerpt: Last pair of headphones was a 25 year old Sony MDR. These are like night and day. These are much lighter, sound quality is great, barely notice that I have them on. Ear cushions are very soft and sized perfectly to sit on my ear, not overly large - not too small. I use them at work instead of the PC speakers. Blocks most of the ambient noise.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Color Wine Really

Good phones, but the Bass just doesn't Kick!!!

  • Summary: There's a lot to like about these headphones - they're stylish, very light to wear and the sound detail is incredible. BUT, they do NOT have 'Kick Bass'!!!! In a quiet room, the sound balance, including the bass is lovely, but the bass just doesn't kick as promised on the packaging. It seems strange that in the product description on here the bass is emphasised several times, but that isn't the product's strong point.

Disappointing...

  • Summary: I've owned many pair of headphones, open and closed, many of them Sennhesiers. I have a pair of HD280Pro but they are way to bulky for travel so never having bought a poor set of Sennheisers I bought these "blind". That was a mistake. For the money they are disappointing. Not BAD as such, just I expected better. On the plus side they are comfy and look great. The tone is well balanced. Where I feel let down is the bass - or lack of.
