Summary: The sound is excellent from these ear-buds. They sound as good as larger over the ear headsets. I use them for gaming, watching movies, and listening to music and the sound is incredible. The bass is excellent and clear as well. There is also a long extension cord included. The only negative is that I can't seem to use these ear-buds on a mobile phone to talk to people. However they are still worth the purchase.
Pros: Added features, Big sound, Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Summary: After comparing these with other pairs of headphones/earphones, I've come to the sad conclusion that the good folks over at Sennheiser have taken to putting their name on substandard quality audio products. I loved the Sennheiser CX 300 I had for a few weeks (I exchanged them for Shures later) but since then their line of audio products has been increasingly inclined towards amplifying the bass in the output.
Summary: You're gambling if you buy these: I've just tried two of them and both have faulty extension cables. I get poor sound quailty, no sound in one ear, and no mic recognition at all through the extension, although if I plug the headset in directly it works fine. I sit with my head about 2' away from the audio jacks on my computer, which is probably closer than most people, especially if you don't have your computer on your desk.
Summary: I am not sure what I can add to the other reviews for this product. As expected from Sennheiser they are of very high quality They are comfortable in my ears They work well blocking out noise from other sources They are as good listening to music as they are for gaming.
Summary: For an rrp heading towards a hundred quid you might expect something very special. You would be dissappointed. Performance is only average, comfort is not great and even the carrying pouch is a poor design. Save yourselves some money and consider Logitech Clear Chat Stereo Headset for about a tenner. IMHO Logitech products are always five star at a remarkably low cost.
Summary: These headphones do the job. Expensive yes, but sometimes if you want a product for a particular job, then these are the ones to call upon. Clear sound when playing games, and I like the fact when talking other noise going on around doesn't get in the way of your voice. also other white noise (background noise) is less when using these which I personally found when using them. The cables are of all good length, and they fit comfortably in the ear.
Summary: I found these headphones to be perfect for playing games online on my PC; the in-ear buds did a brilliant job of cancelling outside noise and have a good range and the microphone was a comfortable distance away from your face, as opposed to on an arm-attachment across your face. The cable is 1m long, and comes with two 3.5mm plugs, one green (audio in) and one pink (microphone out).

Summary: These are an excellent set of headphones or rather in ear headset. They have a microphone so can be used for gaming or with your PC and MP3 player. I have to say I was impressed with the sound quality, wondered why they were so expensive but they are well worth it (and I'm someone that thinks a £10 set are a bit costly as they are all the same) Have since changed my opinion! they are just crystal clear and the music is amazing to listen to now.
