Summary: I produce my own music and listen mostly on an iPhone while I'm moving about. I travel and also commute by subway to work, the Sennheiser HD 238 blocks most of the 'ambient' (that's a nice word for it) noise. Great balance and low end. Exactly what I've wanted in headphones now for many years.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
Summary: Best headphone i have so far. the sound is pretty amazing.I was thinking about buying a pair of Bose on ear instead. But right now i pretty much sure i made a right decision.it's worth every penny u pay.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: Nice headphone for MP3 player. Its very efficient, in that you get a lot of sound without having to crank up the volume control on your device. Good quality balanced sound, perfect for my use around the house or on the porch. It doesn't fit my head very tightly, so I would not recommend them for active use, such as jogging or while mowing the lawn. If you bend your head down, they can fall off quite easily.
Summary: Sennheiser is obviously a very prestigious brand when it comes to audio equipment, especially headphones. Even at the relatively low price to what most good Sennheiser headphones cost, these do not lose the quality with it. They provide clear distinction between high frequencies and low bass frequencies even in the most distorted of songs.
LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY. I SHALL SAY THIS ONLY ONCE.

Summary: Sennheiser, probably THE name when it comes to quality headphones. It definitely is one of THE names when it comes to expensive headphones. These however are from their more affordable line of products. My producer friend has a pair by Sennheiser that cost him over £500. That is exactly how much these cost, well if you loose a zero off the end.
Summary: The Sennheiser HD 238 headphones are designed for use on the go with a supra-aural, compact and portable-friendly build. They are, contradictorily, open back however, meaning that sound will leak. The positive from this is that, in my opinion, the sound is wider and airy rather than claustrophobic with no ambient noises. They are also extremely light and can be worn for extensive periods of time with minimal decline in comfort.
Pros: Light, highly comfortable, impressive sound for the price
Cons: Not foldable, bass could be more realistic, very open (could be an advantage to others though)
Summary: Having started using my laptop for watching films whilst staying away in hotel rooms, I recently decided to invest in a pair of decent headphones to replace the standard iPod ones I have been using for years. Anyway, not wanting to pay the £69 RRP, I did a quick search on google and found a pair on Amazon for £39.99 plus P&P - a much more reasonable and sensible price for this product. Anyway, onto the headphones themselves.
Pros: Relatively cheap, comfortable, quite good sound quality
Summary: WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR: At home, I enjoy listening to music and when I listen to my music, I want to listen to good quality music - and the quality always comes from the headphones. I wanted the headphones to be good quality and to have a decent size lead so that I was not restricted to what I could do whilst listening to my music through these headphones.
