Quality?

David T., Newegg
26 July 2015
  • Summary: what else can I say two pairs one for me and one for my daughter and they both broke and she is meticulously care with EVERYTHING she owns. In other words don't touch her stuff...lol. I just felt bad for buying them for her.
  • Pros: I refer to my pro tag she was very good at first but really sucked when she left {and before too ;-] }
  • Cons: I have been a Sennheiser fanatic for 30 years but they like most company's these days take shot cuts now a days. We've had 2 pairs of these and the same thing happened to both. one or two little tugs on that skinny @*& wiring and that's it. I have 2 pairs of cans from another company that I could...

Great except uncomfortable on a large he

  • Excerpt: The sound and microphone quality were just fine for gaming, which is what this headset was bought for. But after about an hour's use, it presses into the sides of the head like a clamp. It's tough to find comfortable headsets for large heads -- and sadly, this one is not in that exclusive club.

Downhill quality.

John A., Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Pros: Wonderful sound replication. Good quality mic (when it works). They (mostly, see cons) fixed the volume slider right/left imbalance of the PC150s.
  • Cons: This is the second, or maybe third, pair of PC 150/151s I've owned. All three died for the same reason: the Mic stopped working. I took extraordinary care of the cables, so I have no idea what caused them to stop working. Re-buying $60 headphones just because the mic breaks is silly, so for now, ...

Wanted so much more

CHRISTOPHE F., Newegg

  • Pros: These headphones have great sound quality. They are very comfortable for on-ear headphones. They have a thick foam ring wrapped in soft fabric. I like that the cable is extra long.
  • Cons: The headphones are heavy. So if I bend over while I'm wearing them, they fall off my head. Also, the microphone quit working after three months. I expected better quality from Sennheiser.

Lasted Several months

Michael P., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Pros: I bought this because I was tired of the Logi and Creative headsets breaking within 3 months. That and there was a huge discount. The sound quality is decent.
  • Cons: This headset managed to last twice as long as the others. I got about 7 months out of it. It was being held together with tape. I broke down and ordered a Logi but I paid over $100 for that one and it has good egg reviews.

Good sound, good mic (till it died)

Valarie V., Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Still use them despite the non working mic. Use a cheap pair for the mic while I have this headset on.
  • Pros: Great sound. Some of the best sound I've gotten out of headphones. Great bass. Noise canceling does it's job, can't hear anyone else talking to me when I'm in the middle of a game...haven't figured out if that's a good thing for bad thing yet. :D
  • Cons: Mic cut out on me after a year. Worked great one day then the next I couldn't figure out why the rest of my team couldn't hear me screaming at them. No abuse, I take good care of my equipment. Have tried on multiple mic jacks on multiple rigs and nothing.

Great, but short lived.

Anonymous, Newegg
24 August 2011
  • Summary: The headset was great, a perfect fit, while they lasted.
  • Pros: The sound quality is great for both the earphones and mic. It is one of the things Sennheiser does best. Also, I love the long cord; I hate having to go get a 3.5mm extender. Lastly, they were very comfortable. I was able to wear them for extended periods of time with no irritating pressure on my...
  • Cons: A short seems to have shown up in the cable already, and I have only had this headset for a little over a month. The sound is out in the right earpiece and the sometimes the connection will flicker on and off. Sometimes, the connection will just go out, and won't come back up.

Great for 2 months then mic went dead

Anonymous, Newegg
15 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my first headset which broke after 2 years worth of use, this one went dead quicker only 2 months after I purchased it the mic went dead. Its worthless now.
  • Pros: Comfortable headset, Low Price, Good Sound Quality, and good mic quality
  • Cons: Very low mic volume, in order to hear myself I would have to boost the mic volume 100% in Windows Sound Control Panel. The volume is also a little but low but bearable. Not USB (not really a con unless you need USB)
