Summary: Very expensive for what you get. I wish I hadn't bought them. If you fall asleep on an overnight flight and the headphones touch the seat headrest the headphones switch off and you lose the noise reduction feature. A poor design feature. So not a good purchase for travel purposes.
Summary: So you pay close to £300 for a set of wireless headphones. Good points: - The sound quality is good. - The wireless feature is great. - They're very comfortable. Bad points: - There's a lack of control buttons to make sense of the features. For example, to turn the set on you have to hold play for 4 seconds, to activate Bluetooth you have to hold down play for 5 seconds. - The don't feel robust. -The surround sound feels like a wasted feature.
NoiseGard ruins the sound - don't buy if you're depending on the noise cancellation

Summary: For the first time in 30 years of buying Sennheiser headphones, I find myself having to return a pair of Sennheisers for a refund. I'm a big Sennheiser fan; I currently have the HD 595 for the Hi Fi, the HD 380 Pro for work, the MM 450-X when mobile, and the PX 100-IIi as a spare. I've owned many others over the years.
Summary: At £280 these headphones should've produced a much better sound than they do. They're just okay across the board with the most frustrating aspect being the volume. They're far too quiet. Even at max volume, which is how they stay all the time. There are far better quality headphones out there at half the price of these. At least the wireless functionality is good. 3hrs charge = 10 hrs playback.
