Summary: When my PortaPros got dropped a few times too many I looked for a replacement. I narrowed the field to the PX 100 II and another pair of PortaPros because I need to have open ear headphones while using the computer. I should have just gotten another pair of PortaPros because the nicer definition on the high end does not make up for the uncomfortably large size. I am not a small person (6' 220lbs) and I never thought of my head as particularly small.
Pros: Clever packaging design, Durable, Nice definition in highs
Cons: Designed for giants, Poor Value, Uncomfortable
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Summary: Der Klang ist Top, da gibt es nix, aber da ich das Gerät an einem S3 Mini betreibe. musste ich feststellen, dass es da nicht als Headset funktioniert. Das liegt an der Belegung der 3,5mm Klinke, wo Masse und Micro vertauscht sind. Apple muss ja wieder anders! Da muss also noch ein Adapter her, der Masse und Micro wieder tauscht. Böse Falle, die leider in der Produktbeschreibung total unter den Tisch fällt.
Summary: Gekauft habe ich den PX 100-II letztes Jahr als mobilen Kopfhörer für den MP3-Player und seither wenig genutzt. Neben seinem ursprünglichen Einsatzort habe ich den Kopfhörer sowohl an der HiFi-Anlage als auch am Computer genutzt. An allen genannten Tonquellen hat der PX 100-II mich nicht wirklich überzeugt. Wenngleich klar ist, dass zum derzeitigen Marktpreis sicherlich kein Oberklasseschallwandler die Ohren verwöhnt, so ist er dennoch unter meinen Erwartungen geblieben.
