Summary: I needed earphones as a more portable version of my Sennheiser headphones, and they work great. Top quality sound as you would expect from the name, trebles are clear and crisp, yet this "livebass" system leaves the bass lacking. They come with two earphone covers (rubber and fabric) and a cool carry case. The rubber covers make for a snug fit but irritate after prolonged use and leave the sound quality a bit tinny.
Summary: These earphones are used on an almost daily basis with my laptop and other kit occasionally and give great audio performance. I've only marked them down a star because I've found the foam earpads almost impossible to retain on the earpieces. Many is the time my wife has asked what that black thing is in your ear, only to find the earpad! I've now given up trying to keep them on and removed them, but they are more comfortable with an earpad.
Summary: Impressive sound for the price as you'd expect from Sennheiser, they make some of the best headphones on the market and their budget products are always decent too. These are no exception and have good clarity and bass response. They look pretty good too, a comfortable fit, and the thicker braided cable really helps avoid those horrible tangles most earphone cables get in.
Summary: Arrived inside three days. They are much smaller than my older Sennheiser MX 375. The sound they produce is wonderful and the price is great. My only fault is the cable which appears to look metallic but sadly is plastic. Other than that they are great!
Sennheiser MX 471 Ergonomic Stereo Earphones with Livebass System
30 October 2013
Summary: Great set of earphones but the rubber around the earpiece keeps coming off which is more annoying then it sounds. This is a low end four star for the product as the design/quality is not as it should be on the rubber.
Summary: I have been used this headphone for 1 years already and it still works well. Once I dropped it into water for minutes and the water damage it but don't try that. Listen music is fine, im not professional anyway.
Summary: Overall I have been pleased with the sound reproduction. The little foam ear pads are certainly responsible for the excellent bass, but they can be a bit fiddly and tend to come adrift. At this price though this slight inconvenience is hardly worth mentioning.
Summary: Incredibly good value for money. Having been using the iPhone headphones previously, the jump in quality was huge. Comes with a nice leather pouch to keep them in. The wires seem a lot more solid than previous Sennheiser headphones I've had in the past.
Summary: I assumed with most headphones these days that there would be a volume and song controller button on the headphone wire itself, didn't specific having one, so that's my mistake. I have to keep getting my phone out to change song other than that happy with the product.
