Summary: I have always wondered what the big issue was with Sennheiser... They're meant to be 'good' right? Well i'm a very happy Grado SR 80i owner, and since Grado, it's hard to impress me. The sound is 'alright, if that's what you're looking for. Deffinately not worth the Â£60 i paid! The plastic is terrible. Sennheiser COULD have put some metal in these, so why didn't they? I think Sennheiser let themselves down as a brand on this design.
