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

Quality not worth the price

Elizabeth Barnott, Amazon

  • Summary: I was disappointed by the amount of leak, and the lack of sound quality. They claim to be super bass-y, but my cheapo in ear plugs sound better than these. Was a bit disappointed to say the least, should have gone for the over ear.

black and red headphones

  • Summary: Great product, but I got them for my son and beware! If you are male as they are not red. They are actually PINK and because of this I had to use modelling paint as he would not use them until the pink was hidden.

Solid plastic

  • Summary: I didn't buy these from Amazon, but from Argos. The subtle-looking red in the pictures is actually a rather nasty shade of mid-pink. There's an equally queasy shiny red plastic band round the gigantic Sennheiser logos on each earpiece. They aren't classy, or subtle, or stylish. They don't fold down, so you can't stuff them away easily when travelling. The sound is OK, even and well balanced.

Have potential, but...

  • Summary: These headphones remind me of the time I tried the Sennheiser PX200 - You know the decent sound is there to be heard, but can't experience it because they sit too light on your ears, thus creating an insufficient seal, resulting in a distant and bass-less sound (and more sound leakage).

GReat quality, disappointing sound

Null Unit, Amazon
16 May 2012
  • Summary: I've got a few different over-head headphones now. Most of the usual suspects, yet I've consistently found Sennheiser to offer the best bang-for-buck, but these are a little disappointing. For this review I compared directly with my Sennheiser HD 202 Closed Back On-ear Stereo Headphone which are a bit cheaper but a fair comparison.

Decent, but not as bassy as blurb says

D. Salmon "domski1969", Amazon

  • Summary: This design is quite a comfortable one, they sit on the ear rather than enclosing them, but even so, they do quite an effective job of cutting out external noise. They are comfortable enough to be worn for a couple of hours on a commute/trip etc without becoming a pain. I'm not convinced by the design and thought they looked a bit plastic-ky, but other people might think they're quite funky. Sound wise, they are pretty good.

Overpriced and something not right with the sound

Chris Widgery, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: I get through headphones at a rate of knots, so I am looking for durability, as well as price and sound quality. I am not an audiophile - my listening is on my commute to work, so there is always lots of background noise around. Before I talk about the headphones, I need to start by saying there is, as is sadly often the case with electronic products, a ludicrously OTT plastic case that is almost impossible to get into.

  • Excerpt: Девушка себе взяла такие, отобрал потестить... ей вот внешним видом понравились, а я техническую часть заценил. На фоне моих КОСС СпортаПро...ммм...
  • Pros: 1. Красивые, как для девушки, вероятно :)
  • Cons: 1. Не понял прикола с амбушюрами... они из чего ? Такое ощущение в них, как будто голой задницей сел в кожаное кресло :) Не сильно приятно.
