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: 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: 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 have been listening with these headphones for a while and thought I'd give them a review. I'm no expert, just somebody who likes music and walking. These headphones fit the bill. I have stayed away from those earplug type headphones because I don't like things stuck in my ears. I have been walking quite a bit lately so I had to use a pair of Philips ear buds. I thought they sounded OK, until I tried the PX 100's.
What a huge difference!
Summary: I´ve owned these little bastards many years now, and loved every minute. They are compact in size, but huge in sound. And i mean hu-ge!
I remember when i bought these for travelling and to-go-field recording and just could not believe my ears.
When i compared these on Grado SR60, In some areas these are better!!!
Some says that PX100 are a bit dull and doesn´t have high end sparkle, bu i say that these are remarkable flat in over all sound.
Summary: I bought these because they were cheap. Yes, $60 is cheap in Korea for entry-level audiophile cans, due to horrendous import taxes. I chose the PX-100s after a good hour of A-B comparisons in-store with their rivals, principally models from Koss and Sony.
More than two years later, other headphones/IEMs have come and gone, but I've kept the PX-100s because they are just so damn handy, and they really do sound good for what they are.
Pros: Light, portable, good sound quality for the price
Cons: Lack some sparkle at the top end, no isolation whatsoever
Summary: The PX100 is proof that something quite cheap and simple can provide as much enjoyment for the end user as something significantly more expensive. That's not to say that they're on the same level of quality as a higher end product, you do get what you pay for. It's a mental thing. There's so much satisfaction to be had in the idea that something so light on the wallet can sound so... pleasant!
Pros: Pleasurable dark Signature, BASS, Comfort, Portability, Value, Replaceable padding, Built quality
Summary: This is my second pair of these same Sennheiser's. Unquestionable sound quality and an unbelievable price. Don't take my word for it either. Read CNET or other audiophile sites for reviews on this equipment. Light, on ear headphones that fill your ears with sound.
