Bright, Detailed, Good for the Price

Jon, B&H Photo

  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Low Sound Leakage, Neutral Clear Sound
  • Cons: Bass Light, Bulky Plug, Poor Isolation, Tacky Color Scheme

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

S. Randle "Stuart Randle", Amazon

  • 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.

Disappointing...

Md Francis, Amazon

  • 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.

IGNORE MY RATINGS

Jack, Argos

  • Excerpt: I reserved these but they were a lot smaller than expected as I wanted something that would cover my entire ears. Sennheisers are generally very good and reliable headphones so I do not doubt their performance, i did not use them however so ignore my ratings.

Quality not worth the price

Elizabeth Barnott, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • 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

Lacey, Argos

  • Excerpt: 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

H. Dixon, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • 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.

Have potential, but...

KMW, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • 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).
