A funny thing happened on my way to writing a one-star review...
23 July 2014
Summary: Some time ago my venerable HPA2PCs fell apart after nearly 5 years and I began shopping for a replacement. What I wanted was an upgrade to those,,,but I kept coming back to the originals as being the best. They are discontinued. After some research I decided to give these Senns a try.
Summary: To really review this product, I need to break it with 2 parts: The headphone - It is a decent headphone. I been using Sennheiser HD600, so both the sound quality and comfort level is nowhere near it. That's not to say this headphone is bad with this price point.
Summary: In relation to other $75-$100 range headset, this one is right in the middle. To put it in to perspective, I compared this headset to the Logitech g930, Corsair Vengeance 2100, and the Steelseries Siberia V2. The quality of the of the headset was the only thing I was disappointed in.
Summary: The surround sound wasn't as gimmicky as I expected it to be, and the mic worked really well. Otherwise it was quite comfortable, my only other gripe was how flimsy the thing felt. Unfortunately the pair I got didn't work properly, the left driver didn't work very well and went out completely when I...
Summary: For reference I have a pair of HD-598's and 518's. These don't sound bad at all. For casual listening they are only a step below my other headphones. They have brighter highs, not nearly the warmth of the HD's. I would easily be pleased with these if I'd never tried the 598's.
Summary: Sennheiser has been the go-to brand for professional microphones for years; filmmakers, musicians, broadcasters, you name it. But I never realized they branched out into headsets for the home user, because I always associated their brand with the professional market.
High quality sound, well designed. Does hurt your ears after a while

Summary: High quality sound, well designed and made, easy to adjust and install. Very much like the volume control designed in the outside ear cup, very neat. Initially very comfortable and I would have given four stars but after consideration decided to only give three stars for the discomfort to my ears...
Summary: As of writing this, this headset costs £109 which in my opinion is way too much. The sound is OK. There's a lack of base. It just feels flat. It's a step up from just using speakers (except the lack of base; for explosions etc) as you can hear what's going on around you (7.1 ss), which is great, but...
