Excerpt: I did a ton of research in this price range and settled on these because of other reviews on the quality of sound...and they sound amazing. Great bass that doesn't bury the highs or vocals and the multitude of earbuds do a great job of blocking outside sounds once you find the right size for you. The only things I don't like are the cable not being flat (it's pretty thin) so it tangles easily and the connection of the cable to the earbud seem similar to low end buds.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Received these the day after ordering which i paid extra for. Packaging was good. The sound quality is great and they do block out a lot of noise. The reason for 3 stars is 1. Where the cables go in to the remote, there is no reinforcment for the cables. 2. Mine came with a 3.5mm right angle adaptor, this does not work. When i plug it in to my phone, it tells me it is not supported. Does anyone checks these things before they go on sale!! 3.
Superb earphones. Volume is a bit fiddly and hard ...
12 August 2014
Summary: Superb earphones. Volume is a bit fiddly and hard to make minor adjustments but saves having to take phone out of pocket when jogging / cycling (off-road obviously). Top quality product as you'd expect from Sennheiser.
Summary: (From an iPhone 5 user's perspective) Mixed feelings about these. I bought them as a replacement for a set of MM70is which I used daily for almost three years and loved. I (carelessly) assumed these were just a compatability upgrade and chose them as the price was much better. Here's what I think: Sound quality is excellent (if you like earphones). A huge upgrade on stock earbuds or cheaper products. Fit is comfortable, practical and adjustable.
Summary: Have to agree with the other people giving this 5 stars. The quality is great, remote works great, lots of ear canal buds for various sizes and of course the sound is GREAT. There is cable noise that can travel up to the head phones however my last 2 pairs of ear buds did this and I hardly ever notice it. But clipping them in various places can reduce the noise depending on what it is you are doing.
Summary: I purchased these to replace a pair i had stolen, that were amazing. The new version is terrible. Far too heavy on the base, very tinny and half the volume output. They are really bad. I had to have my music on my ipod on full just to not hear people talking. The base is so heavy that i couldnt make outthe vocals. I have bought a £9 pair of another make to replace these and they are far superior. Dont buy these.
Summary: I had the MM30i which were amazing; they broke after extensive use and I bought these to 'upgrade' after the 5* What HiFi review. These headphone have two major faults which to my mind render them unusable 1) lead is too short 2) a remote which belongs in the 90s... has anyone seen an analogue volume control since then? I shall try and return these for another set of the MM30i.
Summary: I have tried many in ear headsets with my Andoid phones, few of them sounded so good and fewer were simply a pleasure to listen to. For the amount of money the sennheiser MM70s does the job pretty well, the the remote control unit is slightly not easy to use as its layout requires to touch the unit more often than normal. Over all a good buy.
