Pros: Let's face it, Sennheiser has, for many decades, specialized in small transducers: microphones, headphones, now earbuds. They don't even venture into large speakers, an area where other headphone companies got their start, and, in my opinion, should have just remained. Instead, Sennheiser maintains its R&D focus on what it's always done best, and better than anyone else. Perhaps some of their little earbud models are not quite as good as their others, but their headph...
These headphones are too inexpensive for how good they are

Excerpt: Buy these. You won't be disappointed. They provide excellent passive noise cancellation. Many audio professionals (engineers, radio djs, even football coaches) use these headphones because of their true response and circum-aural design. The collapsability feature (folds in two different ways: flat or ball) is very useful.
Excerpt: The fact that these headphones are almost 10 years old and they are still selling for close to $100 should tell you that they are excellent and Sennheiser is doing something right. I have had these headphones for two years and I can tell you I have not come across similarly priced headphones with better quality. One of the biggest problems for me was finding comfortable over-ear headphones.
Amazing headphones with lots of bang for the buck.

Excerpt: Awesome headphones. I'm an audiophile and I consider these headphones to be top of the line. When I received them, I noticed an immense difference in my old $20 headphones, and I have been using these since. They take a little while to wear in, just like a good pair of shoes, but they are amazing after about 5 hours of listening to music.
Excerpt: these are a pair of the best phones that i have used in my life. they are very good quality and they are a pair of headphones that is i use every day. the sound quality on these headphones is like the music band is right in my ears. i think that i can use these headphones for a very long time. my husband got them for me and i have not used any other headphones since he bought them for me.
Wonderful Headphone for Casual or Professional Use

Excerpt: These headphones are ideal for keeping sound levels just where you want them...in your own ears and not for the world to hear. It blocks out sound efficiently. I would much prefer these headphones to smaller ones that usually irritate the ears. Although it is not as compact and small as cheaper smaller headphones, these ones are much more comfortable and produce higher quality sound.
Excerpt: I really love these headphones. They are worth the money if you are a serious music lover or use them for professional purposes, such as being a dj in a club. I can listen to my music without hearing any outside interference and my boyfriend doesn't have to hear my sappy love songs. He loves them too!
Excerpt: These are a great buy. By no means are they meant to be the best headphones out there, but they are perfect for what they were designed for. They isolate noise very well and remain fairly comfortable. They sound great. I will note that these headphone benefit greatly from amplification. So either an amp or good source helps tremendously. In many reviews that I have read(including on other sites), people complain about the lack of bass.
