Unfortunately not for my ears

  • Summary: I really and truly wanted to love these headphones. I am not saying they are bad, they just don't have the sound that I was hoping for. They definitely lacked in the lower end department, almost non exsisent. The midrange sounded compressed, and the highs too saturated, especially when it came to the S sound, very similar to a poorly pressed album. I used these headphones with flac files from my NAS, plus a multitude of cd' s on my Denon 3910, and no change.
  • Pros: Nice styling
  • Cons: Lack of bass, compressed midrange, overly saturated highs, ear fatigue

  • Summary: This will be a very brief review because unless I discover otherwise, I will be returning these headphones to Amazon because the inline controls for smartphones do not work for Android phones; or at least my Motorola Droid 3. For $350, this shouldn't be an issue. The Sennheiser website has no info on phone compatibility but I purchased on faith given the company's rep (plus I've owned three sets of Sennheisers previously and have always been happy).
  • Pros: Great sound
  • Cons: inline controls are dead to Android

Dissapointed

  • Summary: These headphones look and feel great - I read a review that described them as "perfect if you want a decent sounding pair of headphones with the style of a business class lifestyle"... sold them to me immediately. They arrived and do look very stylish and come with a great carry case. They do keep the outside noise out and the sound when wearing them sounds impressive. The major major problem is everyone around you can hear the music - word for word.
