Summary: I'm usually a Sennheiser fan but these are pretty rubbish. The cord is set in an awkward position (the divider part is too close to the neck and can't be adjusted), the sound is pretty much rubbish and as the cord rubs off your ears or skin it makes a sound in your ears.
Summary: Whilst they do the noise cancelling part somewhat adequately, the sound is pretty awful for doing anything other than taking calls. Yes there is bass but the top end is terrible: tinny, distorted, unclear. I realise these are competitively priced but I expected something more from Sennheiser.
Summary: Hopefully it's just me, but these earphones broke within the first few days of use. Unfortunately (I think) it was my own doing..... I think? I'd placed my tablet with earphones on the bed, then a t-shirt on the top...
I am surprised Sennheiser produced such a poor quality product

Summary: I am surprised Sennheiser produced such a poor quality product. Within a few weeks the sound in the right earphone went. There is some sound but it's barely audible. The left one is fine. I'm reduced to altering the L/R balance in my phone to compensate, however the overall volume is too low.
Summary: I bought this product 2 years ago and decided to buy again as a gift for a loved one. There is hardly any base - they sound like a cheap pair you buy at the local market. My 2 year old phones sound much better as per the sennheiser I've come to value over the years. What has happened to the quality?
Summary: Initially I was happy with these headphones. The sound initially seemed great. Then I started noticing I had to put the volume up when traffic was loud around me. I never needed to do that with my Klipsch headphones.
