Summary: Thrilled by my excellent Sennheiser HD-200, I bought this via an online dedicated supplier at a special discounted price. It was a great disappointment in sound right from the first moment, poorly paired up with my then iRiver H340 or iPod Classic
That must be caused by the relatively loosened plastic frame supporting the ear tubs...and I really need a very powerful amp to drive the units.
Other build quality things came years later.
Summary: Great set of headphones. They are lightweight, comfortable, yet solidly built. The padding on the headband makes all the difference in the world. Gives the listener the ability to listen comfortably for hours.
Like other reviewers have said, you will hear music like you've never heard before. Gives you pure bass sounds, not over compensated bass. Highs ends are excellent.
Summary: I bought a pair of these for my son 5 years ago. He loved them. 4 years ago I bought a pair for my daughter because she liked my son's so much. I then got a pair for my birthday from my kids last month. Now my wife wants a pair for herself. My son's 4 year old pair lasted him through college and are still kicking. My daughter's survived 4 years of marching band. They don't seem to be durable but they are. Oh yeah, they sound great also!
Summary: First, I genuinely like the product very much because it produces solid sound for light-weight headphone. I very much liked the collapsible nature to carry in a more compact situation. The phones fit tightly on the ears to minimize the ambient, external noise though they technically are not noise-canceling.
However, they were too fragile. After two months of wear/use, the piece on the left ear that "snaps" the phone into place broke.
Summary: I have the on-ear open Sennheiser PX100 headphones which have a good sound quality. But, at times I need a closed ear design to help block outside noise. So, I bought the PX200 headphones. The sound coming from this headset is extremely tinny and shallow. I returned them for a refund. If you do not have a good quality headset with you to compare the PX200 to, then you may not realize just how bad the sound really is.
Summary: Great sound, love the compact case too, very handy. Sound is very nice, only wish they had more bass to them. tried a set of bose on in a best buy and they blew these away but this was in my price range. .
