Well, i had a pair of older Sennheiser HD465 (hi-fi, openbacked) headphones and am conistently suprised by them, every piece of music is opened up to me when i use them, their sound quality is great. However, i felt a bit self concious walking around with what looks like a set of earmuffs on my head and they aren't the most handy headphones to just stuff in a travel bag......okok...hold on i am getting to the PX100's :) so i decided to look for something a tad more portable but HAD to have good quality sound. I cant stand in the ear headphones, terrible and tinny, always hurt my ears.
From recommendations on this site i looked at the Sony MDR range and these Sennheisers.
First, Sound - the PX100's sound quality, ie. dynamics, clarity, base and soundstaging (how much 'space' you can hear between the instruments) are EXCELLENT, and noticabley better then the Sony MDR's....so that sold me.....
Price - i bought mine in Canada and to be honest they are no more expensive over here....so the price, for £30, JUST BUY THEM, great price....
Handling and construction - hmm, the PX100's do feel pretty delicate and i always feel myself handling them with care, i have stopped taking them out mountain biking because of this. It's a real shame. They DO come with a nicely designed hard carry case which you should carry round with you so you can chuck them in your backpack with no worries, but i find myself not taking it out, its hassle and just another thing to carry, so i run the risk of damaging them again :(
Sennheiser customer service - withought doubt, in my experience, excellent. I stepped on the wire of these 'phones and pulled out a small part inside the one of arms. They still could be adjusted but not quite correctly.

Positive: the sound quality is astounding, coming from something so small and light; this goes for the entire range - 15Hz to 27 kHz, which in itself is impressive. As the product description says, the sound actually is "warm" and "natural", yet crisp and clean. The bass is really present at both low and high volumes; you can not only hear it clearly, but physically feel the thump (even at a low volume). One thing I've noticed is that some were disappointed when trying the headphones for the first time - well, good ones, like the px100, generally do make poor quality music sound bad - it is often the compression rate of the mp3, or whatever the file format, that makes the music sound bad (poorer headphones generally don't make the same distinction).
Negative: according to Sennheiser, these are great for "travel" and "outdoor activities", well if the outdoors and vehicle of choice are REALLY quiet that is, if they barely make no noise at all. As a daily commuter on public transport, I can not even hear the music some of the time - the sound is almost entirely soaked by the outside environment, certainly by a loud bus, while only the loudest tones of that impressive range persist. This might be good if you want to stay in touch with the rest of the world while still listening to music, but if you want to ENJOY the music and relax from the rest, well, then you're in for a downer.
In conclusion, these ARE good headphones, while at home or on the street, but in a loud environment, certainly one of monotonous noise, some of the music unfortunately vanes, sometimes to oblivion. So it all depends on how you're going to use them.

98 of 100 people found the following review helpful By S. Greig VINE VOICE on 6 Nov. 2004
I bought these headphones on the recommendation of a friend to use at home with the computer. Trying my iPod headphones with the computer made me realise that I needed something better than the cheapo Sony ones I was using previously. These are better. A lot.
Sound quality is amazing for something so small (and cheap). The base is nice and deep (without distortion) and the vocals clear and crisp. I also own the Sennheiser MX500 ear buds and I would say that the PX100's are very slightly better - possibly due to the way that the phones cover the whole ear.
For the money you get a plastic carry case but to be honest it is a bit of a fiddle to get the headphones back into it. I use the headphones for the computer so do not need to bother with the storage case.
So why only 4 stars?
1) I personally have found that a mammoth game session can leave my ears hurting. Not from the volume, but from the pressure of the headphones pushing onto my ears. So continuous use may cause some people some discomfort.
2) The output is quite quiet in comparison to other headphones meaning the volume needs to be turned up. If you alternate between PC speakers and the headphones it means you are constantly playing with the volume - plus the headphones do not have a volume slider like some do.
3) These are dubbed as "portable" headphones - yes they are small but for listening to music in whilst out and about, I find the ear bud headphones much more practical and discreet. These headphones are not exactly pocket sized. Obviously this is down to personal preference though!
4) As another reviewer points out, the sound 'leakage' out of the headphones is quite loud - obviously it does not bother the listener but other people in the room/train/bus could find it really annoying.
