too big for my ear as opposed for being advertised as small earphone
5 February 2014
Summary: it's too big for my ear. I have always thought this would fit since it has been advertised as being small earphone. For the sound quality, bass sound is not that punchy as advertised. overall, I'm not disappointed nor happy with my purchase. If you're going to ask me if I'll recommend this earphone as bassy earphone, my answer is NO. find another else better. if you want just regular earphone with clear mid and hightones with so so bassy tone, this will suffice.
Summary: I've had Sennheiser earphones for many years now and always been really pleased with them, but these have been a little disappointing. I didn't think I had small ears, but mine must be tiny as these 'specially designed for the smaller ear' phones seem too big (not a problem I'd encountered before...). They're also not as bassy as I was expecting, or as previous similarly priced earphones have been.
Summary: The sound is very good as expected from the brand. Not sure about ergonomic, I like to think I have standard sized ears but even these seemed quite big so the fit wasn't that great. What i disliked the most was how floppy the wires are and it just kept twisting.
Sennheiser MX 471 Earphones - Good but with minor niggles
25 May 2011
Excerpt: I bought these Sennheiser MX471 in red when after years of buying Sony headphones and finding them fail after 2-3 months, I decided to try another brand in the same price range, around £20 - £25 price range. The sound quality is really good for the money and is better than the old Sony headphones I'm used to, with a good levels of bass in the songs I tend to listen to (rock mainly) The volume levels are also good and there's no real harshness which can happen at higher...
Pros: Good sound quality for the price, durable
Cons: Small ear bud size, problems without attachments
Summary: Der Sound ist im Vergleich zu anderen Sennheiser Hörern gut bis zufriedenstellend: Bass etwas zurückhaltend, Mitten und Höhen sauber. Die Stereoperspektive hat eine mittlere Breite. Vom Durchmesser her für Männerohren etwas klein. Im Übrigen gibt es am MX 471 nichts auszusetzen - im Vergleich mit anderen Herstellern durchaus empfehlenswert.
Summary: Der Klang der Kopfhörer ist super. Ich höre sogar feine Nuancen von Instrumenten (vor allem Bässe) z.b. bei Instrumentalstücken, die mir beim normalen Hören nicht aufgefallen sind bzw. nicht auffallen. Auch Straßengeräusche sind so gut wie nicht zu hören. Das dazugehörige Ledertäschchen ist sehr praktisch, da paßt mein Scan Disk rein sowie die Kopfhörer, alles ist daher sicher verstaut (Handtasche), wenn ich die beiden Sachen mal nicht brauche.
