Review from long-time user

Jason P., Newegg
8 August 2013
  • Summary: As a not-quite-audiophile, Sennheiser hovers in that perfect space between top-shelf and performance grade. It's a premium product, more expensive than some, but cheap enough to be worth the money FOR SURE.
  • Pros: For the price, the sound quality you get from these sennies is incredible. Open design gives a more accurate open soundstage. Sure, you don't mute the world and the world can hear you too, but closed designs muddy the sound and bass becomes exaggerated beyond what's intended.
  • Cons: Aside from the grills on the sides, everything is plastic. It's been a few years of good use, but the earcups are starting to crack near the headband extenders.

Great Headphones!

Ryan M., Newegg
9 June 2011
  • Summary: They are great headphones for home use like gaming or music. but because of the "Open Back" design i would not reccomend them for traveling.
  • Pros: They are very lightweight and the sounds is excellent. The bass sounds great but is not very strong, so if you are looking for a set of headphones with heavy bass look else where. they are extremely comfortable and i wear them for 5 hours at a time and sometimes forget they are on my head.
  • Cons: If you are looking for a set of headphones for traveling i would not buy these. They have what Sennheiser calls an "Open Back" which allows sound to come out of the sides of the headphones so people next to you can easily hear what you are listening to. plug in for a normal 1/4" headphone jack is...

Left Ear Rattles

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2010
  • Summary: Kinda pricey, given the left ear rattle problem. However at reasonable volume they sound great and are extremely comfortable.
  • Pros: Sounds great! Bass response is superb, highs are high but I've heard crisper. Extremely comfortable! I've fallen asleep with these on and felt just fine when I woke up.
  • Cons: At high volume with much bass the left ear rattles. This is really annoying because the right ear is just fine - I imagine it has something to do with the cord entering only on the left ear, but really? I almost want to pry the things open and cover whatever's rattling with hot glue.

Great sound but uncomfortable

Ariel C., Newegg
15 August 2010
  • Summary: Been trying to find replacement headphones for my computer entertainment use with movies, games and music, I had some Sennheiser HD212 which lasted me 6yrs but recently died which had been my fav headphones, low price and great sounds quality, not to mention the cable pops out the ear cups making...
  • Pros: Great sound quality, music, games and movies sound clear with a great amount of bass to match, the main reason I love Sennheiser sound products.
  • Cons: they become uncomfortable after an hour of having them on, they make my ears hurt. There is a plastic piece within the ear cup that adds pressure to my ears, if that part wasn't there it would have been ok, im not sure what the inner mold was for. :(

ThIs is going to be the beat Review

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2010
  • Summary: These are headphones NOT headsets, the different is that HEADPHONES are for ipods and other listening devices and computers of course. HEADSETS are for computers were you plug in a Usb for extra power to the headset so they can be louder and more bass
  • Pros: VERY CLEAR! when I play Counter Strike I get accused of wall hacking with these. First time I heard a voice coming from these I looked behind me and these are the 555 sure, but there is a huge sticker on the inside that covers of the most air holes to dum them down and on the 595 they just remove...
  • Cons: This con is personal I bought these to be my computer headsets but there headphones and now having them I'm satisfied to keep them as my computer headphones

  • Pros: Sounds great for late-night movies, music, or video games.
  • Cons: Open design, sounds will escape the headphones. But that's not a flaw, just part of the design.

  • Summary: Clear, well-defined and balanced sound; loud enough; comfortable; affords quite relaxed listening not punchy, or harsh in any way. Worth the few extra dollars? Definitely. I recommend these headphones.

Happy to own them

Benjamin S., Newegg
25 January 2010
  • Summary: The standard cable they come with is very long, which can be good or bad. Also, standard cable ends in a 6.3mm connector, so you need to attach the included 3.5mm connector for common applications. Attaching the adaptor makes the jack/plug a bit long and relatively heavy.
  • Pros: Comfortable, durable, nice sound. I have had these constantly plugged into my computer for over a year, have occasionally dropped them and rolled over the cable with my desk chair, and they continue to perform flawlessly.
  • Cons: You could get better sound quality than these (but you'd probably have to pay at least twice the price to get it). The sound seemed to have a bit less weight to it than I would have hoped.

  • Summary: I would recommend these headphones because of the price, it has the sound quality of $400 headphones.
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality for price and good bass. They are pretty light.
  • Cons: Too much pressure and it creates a little discomfort for you head if you wear them for longer than 30 mins.
