Excerpt: The Sennheiser PX100 set of headphones are more than just the gadgetry that allows them to fold up and pack into their sunglasses-sized hard-case. I’ve tried many in-ear ear buds, but I’ve never been satisfied. Either my ears get sore, or either my ears or the buds get gunged up with foul crud. On the positive side, in-ear buds are indestructible, go-anywhere items. Headphones by comparison are easily damaged on-the-go and don’t generally last long.
Excerpt: Sennheiser PX100 Headphones Sennheiser ’s handy headphones PX100 are new in the list of up-beat headphones . The invention of these headphones is aimed specifically to all those music freaks that are in search of the perfect blend of finest voice quality together with trivial weight without compromising on portability. I am definitely included in this category.
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.
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: 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 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: They sound very good. The bass is strong, especially if I set the equalizer on my Zune to hip-hop mode. I love them. They look really great too. They are super comfy. They have a very light, cushy feel on your ears. I can't even feel them on the rest of my head, but they hold on very securely. I can shake my head and they don't move at all. I have a large head (to hold my 140 IQ brain) and these fit my head with no problem. I don't think I will use ear buds again.
Summary: I was extremely impressed with these headphones when I first purchased them. Clear, crisp, open sound, great separation, tight bass, and ultra-light and comfortable. I have both the Sennheiser 280pro and the PX100s. Certainly the 280s sound better, but if you're not doing an A/B comparison, you could listen to the PX100s and have very little complaint - and for longer: 60g vs. 300g! - and for their price point and comfort, I'm not sure you can do any better.
