I wouldn't normally review audio equipment as opinions are subjective - you don't know me & I don't know you. For me, I wanted Apt-X technology as I think it finally makes bluetooth worthwhile, you'll have to make up your own minds. Younger, trendier types will probably form a disorderly queue for something like JayBird Bluetooth Sportsband 2 Headphones Colour ORANGE CRUSH but, as a grey-haired conservative, I'll stick with these thanks.

However, I think it's worth pointing out that some reviews, both professional & consumer, complain about the bright LED light. This almost stopped me buying these as, on an aircraft, you'd be guilty of either distracting fellow passengers or, if you choose a window seat on the right, shining unauthorised signals from the aircraft. Here's the good news, for those who bother reading the pdf manual (bit tricky on Vista, admittedly, as didn't auto-open from CD-ROM - had to open Acrobat 1st, then navigate to CD), the LED CAN be turned on & off. With headphones off, press & hold main (centre) button until flashes red then blue - vol. down to turn LED off - vol. up to turn back on - simples!

Couple of other points:

Volume - Not blisteringly loud but reaches volumes that would a) give you hearing damage if used for long periods, and b) annoy the hell out of those around you. Again, make sure you've read those manuals - volume control on the PMP can be adjusted independently of the headphones & you need to make sure that your PMP doesn't have any volume limiter set.

Battery life - Battery is needed to use bluetooth and/or noise cancelling.

I've had these headphones for several months now, using them via BT on my phone and via the wire on my laptop, and I'm extremely happy with them.

Pros: excellent sound, noise cancelling works well, being able to plug them in via wire, comfortable on my ears.

Cons: not as much volume or bass as my PortaPros, BT delay not great for watching videos, sometimes there is an odd pressure when using noise cancellation.

Niggles: No play/pause/forward/back functionality when wired, buttons don't always respond on the first press, shipped with a battery cover that wasn't properly attached.

These points in more detail:

Sound - As I said the sound coming out of these is excellent. I hear sounds in songs I've never heard before, and the overall tonal balance is very good. As I also mentioned, though, they are not bass heavy and I do miss that from the PortaPros, but tbh the tones from the 310s are more balanced and allows me to hear more. I think I actually prefer hearing more of the music over hearing heavy bass.

Sound Volume - They could be louder, but again like with the bass, I don't actually mind and now that I've gotten used to it I think I prefer not blowing out my ears. No need for me to bring on premature hearing loss. :)

Noise Cancellation - This works quite decently, I've used it to muffle out street noise or in the office when I wanted some quiet time. It doesn't cancel out noise 100%, of course, but it certainly makes a difference. They do, however, sometimes have strange artifacting that feels like extra pressure on the eardrum, it usually doesn't bother me but in a few rare environments it's been amplified enough for me to turn off the noise cancellation.

First of all, I am a 16 year old boy, who likes lots of different types of music! These headphones are absolutely amazing. I cannot recommend them highly enough and you'll be stupid not to buy them! I bought these instead of the usual dr dre beats, because they're so common! I wanted to be different, and I'm so glad I chose these!

The main reason I chose these were because of the wireless bluetooth option. IT'S AMAZING! to put it into one word is imposible. The sound quality is stunning, and I've seen a few 'cons' about them not being loud enough, absolute BS! They're loud and when you're in a quiet place with noise guard on, the sound is mind blowing, I'm in the kitchen writing this review, with dogs barking and people talking, and I can't hear a word, it's great!! Even without the noise guard on, you still can't hear much background noise.

I haven't tried these headphones with the audio cable yet, because I haven't needed to as the battery life is awesome, and the quality with bluetooth is
too. The light which has also been complained about which flashes on and off, is easy to turn off! JUST READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!

The other thing about the wireless is that it is so nice not to have to fiddle about with any wires! I can assure you, that is the greatest thing Sennheiser have done with these headphones, aside the quality and sound quality, is you don't have to mess about with any wires and you don't have to worry about them getting in the way or knocking things over like drinks etc.

A lot of my friends who have beats are jealous of me for having these and feel stupid for spending so much money on just the name of the brand and regret not getting Sennheisers!
