4.0 out of 5 stars Probably as good as it gets at the price 9 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
I've been playing with hi-fi since around 1970 - hopefully during the intervening period I've learned just a little about 'sound'. I've no particular respect for MP3 format, nor the players which are nevertheless a useful 'mobile' accessory - at the moment I'm using a Philips GoGear Vibe.

Sennheiser PX100s have been my headphone of choice for the last few years (cost vs performance) but recently I've had need of something not 'over the head' and tried my collection of in-ear phones again. Philips, Creative, Panasonic etc. etc. and all pretty disappointing. On a whim I bough the MX471s and, when I first tried them, thought not much different to all the others. Disappointing.

However, they come with one pair of rubber ear 'sleeves', 2 pairs of sponge covers and not a lot else. Fitting the rubber ones and getting a really snug fit in my ear made a world of difference and they stand head and shoulders above my other in-ear phones. Not quite up to the PX100s though.

The wires are thicker than normal and of a resonable length (1.2m); the earpieces , it says on the box, are "Ergonomic fit" & "Designed for smaller ears". I wasn't aware that my ears were anything other than average, but I did need the rubber sleeves to get a tight fit - seemingly responsible for a huge improvement in the sound.

The sound. Yes, reasonable base, controlled treble (maybe even a touch lacking. Maybe.) and overall musical, involving and 'stress-free' after say a couple of hours. At the price, very commendable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent earphones - good value. 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I can't use in-ear-canal phones as I wear hearing aids and besides that one of my ear canals is quite narrow so in-canal plug type phones inevitably fall out when I move. But I needed a decent set of earphones to listen to music from my Kindle Fire. In spite of Amazon propaganda the speakers on the Kindle Fire are pretty awful for music. So going by other reviews and of course the Sennheiser name I decided on the MX 471. I'm very glad I did so, as the earphones fit my outer ear very well, but allow me to retain my RIC (Receiver In Canal) hearing aids in place.
The sound from the earphones is very clear and sharp with good bass (well, good for earphones anyway). The phones come with removable rubber rings to fit over the ear pieces, which helps keep them secure in my ears. The wire connection is of very good quality, much better than the many thin offerings I have had on earphones in the past. The wire has a slideable grommet to help retain the phones when wearing them. There is also a useful bag to store the phones when not in use. Altogether an excellent product which I would happily recommend to anyone who wants a good quality set of earphones at a sensible price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a bargain. 17 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
I left my good set of earphones on the train a few weeks back and really got quite upset about it, so I decided to buy a cheaper set that I would not be so worried about losing again.

This set seemed to fit all my requirements.

They are by no means expensive.

They are made by Sennheiser - my personal favourite manufacturer for earphones/headphones.

They come in a pretty simple clear plastic box that was easy enough to open (I really dislike that welded plastic kind of packaging).

The earphones themselves are fairly standard looking with a red/gold design. They come with a couple of pairs of foam covers and more importantly a set of rubber grommets.

I found that fitting the grommets made a big difference to the sound - they help isolate outside noise, helped me get a much better fit in my ear, and had a big impact on bass especially.

The cord is possibly the most unusual thing - It is shiny and gold and on first glance it looks like a braided cord, but it is actually smooth - close up it almost looks like snakeskin. It is as if a braided cord has been coated in clear plastic. It does seem less prone to getting tangled than a standard rubber cord, but does not seem as good in this respect as a proper braided cord.

They also come with a really nice leatherette drawer-string bag with a Sennheiser logo tag.

Sound quality really is very good at this price. I found they were clear and bright throughout the sound range with really nice separation. Bass is sharp and punchy without being overblown.

Lastly, I didn't actually notice that these were supposed to be for smaller ears when I bought them. I don't think my ears are particularly small but I still find these fit well and are comfortable too.

All in all I am very impressed.

I've also taken a couple of photographs and added them to the user pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect antidote to ear canal headphones 24 Oct 2011
If you can't stand ear canal phones then you can't go far wrong with these. They sound isolate well and include rubber adapters for a snugger fit. Unusually stylish design and even come with a carry pouch. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good headphones 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Excellent sound quality with fantastic bass response. I find the in ear type headphones annoying, the bass transfer is great but I find sounds such as me breathing or my feet hitting the pavement are very intrusive and pretty much all external sound is cut off (which is probably the idea, but I find it useful to have some awareness of cars and buses etc) and these are the best I've found that aren't like that.

They sit in the ear perfectly, feel customized and look stylish. They do not reduce noise like earplug types, but it's not a problem, as the overall sound quality is very high.
