Good sound, mediocre durability

Aleksey T., Newegg
10 March 2014
  • Summary: The cord is short, but it might be considered as a benefit.
  • Pros: Good sound with a strong bass. I really like so called Open-Aire acoustic system. This is my favorite Headphone at a moment. I paid only $40 during Black Friday sale and can say that the sound worth every penny I spent on it.
  • Cons: I wouldn't pay the full price, despite the sound quality. I was very careful with these phones and never moved them away from my desk; used not more than for 50 hours total. Tonight the left driver suddenly died in the middle of song. Had to disassemble the left side and to solder wire which simply fell off from a little PCB. This wire goes from PCB to speaker and should never be under any stress, except a vibration. Soldering quality is just ridiculous. That's why I ...

Your ears can only make the decision for you

Steven K., Newegg
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I was really fooled by the reviews here thinking I was getting a $120 product for $40. It really comes down to your ears as I said in the title. For $60 more than this, you can get a B*** product which will far perform better than this unit. And that is exactly what I did.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Bass response too heavy. These do not sound like $120 headphones should sound like.

Upgrade from PX100 or PX200

Jung-woo S., Newegg
15 January 2014
  • Summary: A great choice if you are a fan of PX100. Bigger than PX100, but the sound is upgraded with higher clarity. A little less crisp over high pitch sounds compared to other closed-ear style headphones, but cannot complain with this price.
  • Pros: Great sound
  • Cons: PX100 is better for portability?

  • Pros: light weight
  • Cons: The only quibble would be that there isn't a 1/4" adapter, but most people don't need one.

Disappointed. Terrible distortion on vocals

ramsey s., Newegg
26 December 2013
  • Summary: This was a Black friday deal; $40 bucks instead of $120. After many hours of use I can only say I'm disappointed with the sound quality at higher volumes. I've never had distortion on an ipod with a set of ear buds let alone head phones at full volume.. Funny part is I'm not even pushing these headphones like I do my cheap $60 turtle beach headset which has better sound quality!
  • Pros: Light weight on the ears, black friday deal
  • Cons: Bad distortion on songs I've never had an issue with. Mainly distorts the vocals/treble. Even the cheap earbuds that came with my ipod/phone don't distort like these Sennheiser 239's do at higher volumes.

Ouch it hurts

Yat L., Newegg
8 December 2013
  • Summary: The earpieces swivel to lay flat. Unfortunately they only turn one way, and guess what, the wrong way. They cannot turn much when you set them down on your ears. not unless you want to switch the left and right channels to the ears. The engineers have blundered onto a modern day torture device.
  • Pros: Great clarity
  • Cons: VERY uncomfortable. The earpieces are small (about size of the ear) and rests solely on the earlobe. If you are not used to headphones pressing on the edges of your earlobes, you'd best stay away from this. It hurts after a while. I tolerated them on for an hour before it became unbearable.

Clean and Crisp!

Shane D., Newegg
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Not having the in-line volume control is probably for the best. That is usually where the problems happen at.
  • Pros: The highs are crisp, the mids clean, and the lows are spot on! They're well crafted and feel well built.
  • Cons: They kinda get uncomfortable after and hour or so and there is no In-line volume control.

Upholds Sennheiser Reputation

Victoria B., Newegg
5 November 2013
  • Pros: Know the Sennheiser name. Have them for home. Love the sound. Comfortable. Well made. Stable during wear. Good price, received addl off (limited time). Even without the addl off, the retail price in my opinion is fair. I would love to hear through a studio model, I'm sure I won't be disappointed when I get the chance.
  • Cons: Do not fold, limited color (just black). But these things are easily sacrificed for the sound that Sennheiser provides.
