Excerpt: For the price, it's amazing. As a classical music affictionado, this pair of headphones produces symphonic music beautifully. The sound is incredibly open, and soundscape is huge comparing to other headphones at this price range.The design may put some people off but I personally enjoy the beige/brown colour combination.
Summary: THe sound is full and relatively true to life. Open design, so you can hear surrounding sound. Although others around you might hear the music played, they would need to be immediately next to you and its relatively low in amplitude. It is extremely light, giving the wrong impression that may be cheaply made,, but quality and finish is good.
Pros: Light, unique look and color with retro design
Summary: These Headphones are worth the cost. However, I think that I like the sound of Grados a little more. The Bass reproduction on the Sennheiser seems to be a little light for me. The comfort of these headphones is where I think these beat the Grados. I'm going to get a headphone amp and see how this will help improve the quality of the sound. The issue may be that I'm currently running the headphones through the headphone jack in my receiver.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones mainly because of the reviews. At first I thought about buying a Beat by Dr. Dre, but changed my mind when I read that these are fashion design more than good sound. Now that I have the Sennheiser I like the sound quality, although not sufficient insulate outside sounds. Also it doesn't helps to amplify the sound of the iPad or iPhone. They are not much very comfortable to travel. And the design is a bit "old style" (not at all fashion).
Summary: sound great for the money their not true audiophile but really nice I got the nuforce d/a converter and that makes a big difference you need a good signal for them but they can bring your music to life very happy to have them
