Excerpt: They just don't make as good a headphones as they used to. This PX100 is one of the better headphones I've have, and definitely the quality that Sennheiser stands for. It's flexible, though maybe a bit weak in the structure, but extremely portable since it folds up and able to carry around in a very small profile. It is an open ear headphone, so there's a bit of bleed from these headphones, but that is to be expected.
Excerpt: I bought the Sennheiser PX100's from amazon a few months ago for $40 before the PX100-2's come out. They sound warm but more on the neutral side. The mid range is EXTREMELY solid and the highs are very crisp and not overly harsh. Believe it or not the PX100's actually have a noticeable bass response and if you have a media player with bass booster and not a bass head, they are more than enough.
Excerpt: I was looking for some decent phones and even though these were a little out of the price range I had in mind I decided that I was going to try them any way. Overall I really like them and the sound is great for the price. Every thing sounds really crisp and clear and I get the bass response that I want. I do wish that the head phones were a little bit more secure around the ears because when I am around loud sounds the phones do not prevent the external sounds from...
Excerpt: The PX 100 was the first pair of Sennheiser headphone I bought and frankly I will only buy Sennheiser for headphones. Sound quality aside, which is fantastic by the way, the build quality of these headphones in unmatched. The headphones come with a hard carrying case which holds and protects the folded headphones. If you get the newer version of these headphones the PX 100 II a pouch is included. Either way these headphones can take a beating.
Excerpt: After having many different brands of headphones, I would review these as the most comfortable (can use for long periods of time without discomfort)...and most resilient brand...and especially, nice for travel. They can be easily consealed in their cloth pouch, in contrast to the PX 100s plastic container. The headband is much more comfortable than other Sennheiser headphones.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones even after PX100-II came out, because I was told that the update improves the bass but downgrades the other sounds. I have not been disappointed with my decision one bit. The PX100s sound great! Sound reproduction is great for a 40 dollar product, all ranges are balanced. It's open ear, meaning that if its volume is on a bit too loud then people around you will hear some tinny noise, but at a medium volume I am able to listen to music just fine.
Summary: I listen to music on personal digital gear and after having listened to high priced ($100 to $200) sets of headphones on display at some local electronics retailers, I came across the Sennheiser Px-100 here at Beach. I did a little on line research, and decided to buy them. If only all my decisions were this good! The first surprise was the dynamic range with stellar highs and deep lows that rival anything I had sampled at 4 times the price.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: This is my third Sennheiser product. Certainly the best one amongst the three. Sound quality is very good, has a good bass and allows some ambient noise (which I prefer. I really like the carrying case since I have had issues with physical durability of Sennheiser head phones. The only con however is that my ears start to ache after prolonged use.
Pros: Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
