Excerpt: Just bought these today in-store because my Cardo S-2 Bluetooth headphones broke last week and I wanted something with better sound quality. The salesman pointed me to the first generation version of these to sample the sound and then told me "Imagine that richness, plus great bass response. That's what you'll get out of the PX 200 II headphones." Thank god they have a good return policy, because these are going back tomorrow.
Summary: I purchased these headphones just over 2 years ago from Amazon UK. The sound of the headphones is brilliant and the option to fold them up is great too. But In these 2 years I had to claim Sennheiser's warranty 3 times as one of the speakers stopped working.
Summary: I'd give a much higher rating for sound quality, but while they're outwardly physically robust (my most recent pair look as new after a year of regular use) there are serious problems with the internal wiring. I've had three pairs of Sennheiser foldable headphones over the last five years or so and none has lasted longer than a couple of years, in every case the sound has gone in one ear.
LISTEN to the PX 100-ii BEFORE you purchase these.

Summary: There is nothing poor regarding the PX 200-11's. They are a quality headphone manufactured by a quality company who specialise in headphones. THE point is unless you need or like a closed ear phone you MUST review the less expensive PX 100-11. You will be surprised as have so many other hi-fi reviewers. Caution, sound like colour, is a personal choice, what one enjoys another will not. I would strongly suggest before you purchase these to try the PX 100-11 first.

Summary: The first one I received died on me - the sound stopped working in one ear. I got it replaced, but the second one died in a similar way in a ahort time, and I haven't bothered to return it again as I expect it to keep happening, because I keep the phone in my pocket and it forces on the connector. I bought it based on the PX200-II (without mic) that are still going strong and I am using with bluetooth adaptor.
Summary: After getting through quite a few pairs of in-ear type earphones, I decided to buy this pair of on-ear ones, because I thought they'd be less likely to break and sound better. Well, I was certainly wrong about the former! Both of my pairs of PX200-IIs (the second were replacements under the warranty) broke within around 6 months - first the sound goes in one ear and then about a week later in the second.
Summary: I couldn't decide between these and px100 II so I ordered both to try out. I was looking for a lightweight headphone that I can use in bed when watching movies and playing games on my pad and a bit of radio listening. I knew that the px100 would have more bass but I didn't realise that the px200 would sound so tinny. Considering the reviews they get I'm surprised at how thin they sounded. I asked a few family members to try both and they all picked px100 also.
Summary: I had two pairs of these and both times they lost the sound in one ear within months. Amazon were great and first replaced them, then second time gave me a refund. It's obviously a design fault but it's frustrating because I loved their portability and the sound quality was really good.
Summary: I loved the design of this product. It folds up in to a nice small package. I was also very impressed with the sound. It blocks out outside notice very effectively. I felt that these headphones had it all. Now where this product lets itself down is the build quality. The integrated volume control creates a crackle when used and at times you lose sound altogether in one ear. This has slowly been getting worse. It is now so bad that I'm looking around for other headphones.
