you're paying for a name

12Bytes.org, Newegg
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Sennheiser used to build high quality components, but the junk that here being sold here on Newegg is just that; junk!
  • Pros: * comfortable * good sound quality
  • Cons: * very poor build quality * plastic began peeling off of head cushion after a couple years * in-line volume control started to fail after about 1 year

The glass headset

Anonymous, Newegg
14 July 2012
  • Summary: If you're going with Sennheiser, store the headset on top of a pillow inside a vault when you're not using it. Also, take advantage of their two year warranty on their site.
  • Pros: Amazing clarity. People have told me over Vent how much clearer I sound than others. The speaker volume and microphone mute controls on the headset's cord are very useful.
  • Cons: This is the second Sennheiser headset I've bought that didn't last six months. The microphone on this 151 just died suddenly. I was very careful to protect this one after my previous Sennheiser (a 155 model) died from a frayed cord at the volume control after only moderate use. These poor things ...

SENNHEISER PC151

Daniel G., Newegg
23 June 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately the 2 weakest links eventually (in my case 2 months) destroy what could have been a great headset. At this point it should be common sense that the cord may get run over/stepped on a few times in it's life (they do have a 9 ft cord) Being that this is the case Sennheiser may not want...
  • Pros: Good sound. Highs and lows are exceptional for a headset of this size.
  • Cons: The 2 weakest links in these headsets are the mic mute switch (which broke in 2 months, rendering the mic useless) and the cord (which unraveled and became exposed after even looking at my chair) Also uncomfortable after extended periods of use.

microphone dies after 9-12 months

Mark P., Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Would not recommend for anyone who wants to use a headset for more than 9 months...
  • Pros: Works great for the 9-12 months you own it for.
  • Cons: This is the second sennheiser pc-151 headset I've owned. I use it to skype with friends and for gaming purposes. Each time I've owned one of these the microphone has broken 9-12 months after use.

My ReViEW

Leonard p., Newegg
28 January 2012
  • Summary: It was a great mic for about 2 weeks, until IT stopped working because it decided that it's lifespan is dead.
  • Pros: It worked well for 2 weeks
  • Cons: Stopped working, in literally 2 weeks while watching a movie and not doing anything to it. Did not touch or abuse it, very delicate with the whole time I had it (2 weeks).

Super weak...

Gregory K., Newegg
11 July 2011
  • Summary: My freebie iPod earbuds are louder.
  • Pros: Pretty good bass response.
  • Cons: Been using these for about a month & they're super-extremely weak. I had to go into my iTunes & increase the volume output to +100% which distorts it, of course. Due to the distortion, I have to go in and adjust the equalizer on a per-song basis. Terrible headphones. Just awful. Tried to RMA them...

Expensive piece of junk

Anonymous, Newegg
21 April 2011
  • Summary: If anyone knows where I can get a reliable headset where the mic doesn't crackle and/or totally go dead after a few months, I'd love to hear about it.
  • Pros: When I first bought this headset, I was very pleased with it. I already have a pair of Sennheiser high-end headphones (my second) which I use for serious audio. But I needed a reliable headset for my Rosetta Stone language lessons and dictation software for notes while I work. My other headsets h...
  • Cons: The *(#^*$ expensive Sennheiser broke even more quickly than my cheap 17 dollar pieces of junk! This makes me sick! Cannot anybody make a mic that won't break? No, it didn't physically break, and the sound output still works fine. But the mic just became worthless and started transmitting noise a...

Complete Waste of Money

Matthew W., Newegg
1 February 2011
  • Summary: Had heard good things about Sennheiser and decided to give these a try to replace my broken headset. I was completely disappointed.
  • Pros: Arrived quickly, usual great Newegg service.
  • Cons: -Sound quality was awful. My roommate's $10 Sony headphones produce better sound. Music through this headset just sounds small and hollow. -Constant crackling sound. This could have been just a problem with my headset, but there was so much crackling anytime I played music that I could barely sta...

Kabelbruch

R. Kollhorst, Amazon
8 February 2015
  • Summary: Nach ca. 14 Monaten keine Funktion des Microfons mehr. Kabelbruch unterhalb des Lautstärkereglers. Bekommen es die Hersteller bei der heutigen Technik nicht auf die Reihe, Kabel herzustellen oder zu verwenden ohne die Gefahr eines Kabelbruchs? Und das noch bei dieser Preisklasse?
