Good sound, so-so comfort

  • Excerpt: I purchased these headphones to replace the model that preceded them- the PX-100. The sound of these headphones is superior to the prior model, however, they are not comfortable to wear for any period of time and squeeze your head. I am disappointed, also the cord is very flimsy. For the money I would expect better build quality.
  • Pros: Good Bass
  • Cons: Uncomfortable

Worth the price

  • Excerpt: While these are definitely not audiophile level phones they are amongst the best in their class. For those listeners who are not happy unless the bass is booming or the treble is screaming, don't even think about trying these headphones out. Unlike some others in this price range, they are fairly and pleasantly neutral. What you hear is the actual recording with a surprising amount of detail. What's not to like?
  • Pros: Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Too Much Ambient Noise

3.5 stars

  • Summary: Going into this purchase, I had fairly high expectations from these. After having owned them for nearly a month now, I can say this with certainty: I prefer IEMs over headphones, open or closed. That's not to say that these are a bad pair of headphones. Far from it. It's just that they don't shine as much in light of the competition, which is the pair of Etymotic Research hf5 that I owned previous to this purchase, and still do.

PX100 replacement

Dr Border, Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought these as a replacement for my original PX100 headphones which broke after many years of trouble-free use. The PX100-II provide similar sound reproduction (excellent), but unfortunately don't feel as comfortable to wear (not so excellent). Compared to my old headphones the PX100-II are much too tight on the head, and the ear-pieces don't pivot enough, meaning the pads don't sit as square on my ears. A little disappointing really.

Good product

  • Summary: These are great speakers and I'm hearing sound from my iPOD like I've never heardit before - so why only 3 stars? - They're not robust enough - life span appears to be about 6 months before they stop working or at least one of the speakers stop working - I'm on my 03rd pair now, as I said great speakers, if they could only get them to last a little longer.

too firm on the ears

R. Fuller, Amazon

  • Summary: I had the old-style px-100 headphones which were lovely and comfy (thin metal headband, but quite springy). I read the recent reviews for the next-generation style (mostly about audio quality) but nevertheless thought I'd give them a go. My only gripe really is that although the headband is significantly more sturdy than before, they are now far too firm on the ear and I can only wear them for perhaps 15-30 mins without my ears becoming painfully squashed.

Okay, but disappointing

  • Summary: I had one of the original PX100 headphones for many years, which I used while running, and other outdoors activities. I loved them. They were well made, comfortable, they could be folded and stored in a coat pocket and the sound was good. In fact the sound was very good, with good definition of mid range and treble. When they died, I worked my way through numerous headphones, all of which were either no good, or fell to pieces after a month or two.

Amazing sound but poor quality product

jharris, Amazon

  • Summary: I found the sound on these headphone amazing. I normally had to have the volume set quite high on my ipod with my apple headphones, but could put it less the halfway and still have amazing sound with these. They were also very comfortable. However, the cable split at the jack after about 3 months use. I admit i am not always careful about putting them away, but i still wouldn't expect this to happen.

Essai non concluant

  • Summary: Décevant par rapport aux avis favorable trouvés. Le son est caverneux. Le réglage de l'appareil est une vraie galère et on ne peut pas compter sur la notice réduite à sa plus simple expression. Il faut connaître toutes les fréquences pour trouver les stations (absence RDS). Quelques boutons de mémorisation des stations favorites auraient été les bienvenus.
  • Pros: design, bonne réception
  • Cons: design, bonne réception
