Meant to give them 5 stars - can't fathom out how to change my rating!

Not an audiophile, but these sound absolutely fantastic. I've just bought my first Ipod and I took note of all the Amazonians out there who recommended buying a separate (better) pair of earphones than those supplied. I compared my new Sennheisers directly with the rubbish ones that came with the Ipod and couldn't believe the difference in quality of sound - a completely different experience.

The volume control is a nifty addition, and the noise isolating feature seems to work fine. Unlike some earphones these are very comfortable to wear, even over long periods. The sound is crisp and clear, and I would say that for the price this product is a steal - very, very good quality. It's a real pleasure to listen to music through these Sennheisers, and I would thoroughly recommend them.

Choice of headphones is a very personal thing but these are the best I have ever had. Full stop.

The choice of fittings mean you can get the perfect fit for you, the volume control is really handy as is the clip so you don't have wires trailing everywhere.

But the sound is just fantastic! I listened to Revolver by the Beatles and heard things I have never heard before - and I've had the album on vinyl and CD and must have listened to it countless times. Plus the headphones really cut out external noise - even on a busy tube train.

Only negative comment - the little case split after just a month but it's still usable. And maybe it's my fault for cramming it with other accessories as well as the headphones.

I have previously reviewed my iPod Touch 32gb giving it 4* and saying that I marked it down because of 2 things - the headphone socket is in the wrong place (which I still believe) and that it was too quiet. These headphones sort out both problems at the same time.

I'd read the reviews and was still unsure as to whether or not I was going to be able to tell a great deal of difference between my existing iPod headphones and these new ones. I couldn't have been more pleased when I tried them for the first time. I deliberately chose a dance song with lots of bass in it so that I could gauge the difference between how my old phones played it and how these new ones performed. Chalk and cheese !! No two ways about it - these Sennheiser headphones are astonishing for the price. Bass is crisp, no distortion, treble is excellent - everything I'd always wanted from my iPod but couldn't get.

The headphone jack is at 90 degrees to the socket so they lie flat against the bottom of the player as opposed to sticking right out like the Apple headphones did. Therefore, the problem (I found) with the socket being on the bottom of the player is resolved.

Plus, turn up the volume and it's loud - at last !!

A further benefit comes from not having to play your iPod as loud with these headphones. Therefore, your iPod battery lasts longer !!

I tested them out with my wife sat next to me and she couldn't hear what I was listening to. Also, the ear buds fit so snugly into my ears that I couldn't hear anything else other than the music I was listening to.

I am so pleased with these headphones. Apple are kidding you with theirs - spend and extra couple of ££'s / $$'s on top of the price of the player and get these to replace the headphones Apple supply - you won't be disappointed

These earphones are awesome, my last pair were the best I've owned yet. Impressive on the bass, ear plug design blocks out background unwanted noise for a clearer, inimate sound.

I recommend these to anyone. However my most recent pair I bought (I lost my last pair) I bought for £18. This shows as I have my suspicions they aren't genuine. There is bare cable both ends of the volume switch and the logos are peeling off. The sound quality has never been as good as I remember from my previous pair... I have only had these two months!

My advice, spend the money (£30+) from a reliable dealer who you can bank is selling orginal quality stuff.
Even on my "fake" goods, the packaging is uncanny and comes with all the bits, pouch, interchangable ear plugs... DONT BE FOOLED!

It is stated in Bagnews "advertisement" for Sennheiser head phones that they come with a 2 year warranty. Bagnew is NOT a registered seller of Sennheiser equipment and your warranty is not valid.

The earphones I bought from Bagnew were faulty within 12 months - very 'tinny' sounding play back - no stereo.

I have emailed Bagnew twice to request information/update about this issue - if they can confirm they bought head phones from a registered seller and give me that in writing, I can have my head phones replaced by Sennheiser.

They have not replied.

I spent £40 on faulty, possibly fake, Sennheiser head phones - Do not make the same mistake!

I use my ipod at the gym 5 days a week and i've always used the earphones provided by apple and they have always broke!!! One of the ear peices always breaks, i have replaced them again with apple earphones and again they have broke with the same problems (apparently this is a problem with there earphones) i have to say they are rubbish, if you are after good quality ear-phones then buy these ones...they may seem expensive but you pay for what you get...and they last...EXCELLENT EAR-PHONES, EXCELLENT SOUND....COULDNT GET ANY BETTER!!!!
