2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously over rated., 25 Mar 2006
These headphones may sound good. But they are not worth the price that you pay (about £30). Being aural on ear headphones, only a small portion of the produced sound gets in your ears. THESE CANS LEAK LIKE NOTHING ELSE. (well, except similarly designed of headphones). I warn you know that these cannot be used in public areas (you will get arrested/stabbed/mugged)for the extreme amount of noise that these excrete. They also let you hear everything else that is going on, which is a double edged sword in manyways... you dont get runover, but the bus engine is louder than the music..
On the plus side, they look OK, and are quite comfortable.
These headphones are not for the serious music lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are great, 25 Mar 2006
It has to be said, theses ar a great pair of phones. At 32ohm they are loud enough for portble player use and by many are regarded as the best Sennhieser headphones for MP3/IPOD listening without an amp. These are very detailed, and have a wide soundstage, and have great seperation due to the open design. Although this desing leaks sound so everyone will be able to hear what you are listening to (dont worry, i still listen to Spandau Ballet too) and the bass is leaked a fair bit due to the open design.

Pros:
> Excetional sound quality.
> Very wide/open soundstage.
> 32ohm means you can run these off your MP3/MD/CD player at reasonable volumes.
> They look Cool
> The replaceable single sided 4m cable (3.5jack to 3.5jack stereo) is an absolute godsend.
> Open design allows you to hear oncoming cars and stops you getting runover :)

Cons:
> Open means that you can hear everything going on around you. (ie screaming kids,nagging wife/husband, nagging parents, and bus noise)
> Open design leaks sound, and leaks a lot of the bass.
> The cable that comes with these is 4m long, so better for at home listening. I advise you buy a 1m cable for portable use. (they are not expensive)

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, 25 Mar 2006
These are probably the best cans in the WORLD for under £20. They are balanced, have great bass response, strong mids and sparkling highs. Although a little on the bright side for some, they do offer superb sound reproduction at this price. They are also sealed, and have a low impedance (32ohm), making them ideal for portable use. (rember to break them in)
Pros:
>Loud (32ohm) and sealed shutting out outside sound and sealing your music in.
>They are VERY light AND comfortable
>Unrivalled sound quality at this price point
>If you are one of the anti-Grado fashion-esque folk then these headphones are stunners, the look COOL and expensive.
Cons:
> The cable doesnt have an uptake and is quite long, so youll need a hairband or elastic band to keep the 3m cable under control.
>For the lazy hermits among you, there is no volume control, though i dont really see this as a disadvantage (they damage sound quality)
>They will make you/your teenager yearn for better sounding phones and when your kid starts begging you for the Senn HD650s dont complain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Erm, its OK., 25 Mar 2006
As an amplifier, it is modest. Although it is much better than the ones that some with mp3 players and Ipods.
The good parts:
> Good For balancing your headphones frequency responce
> Or just adding an insane amount of bass to your music. (If your cans will handle it!)
>It also has an amp (louder output) in it making it great value for money compared to the more expensive portable headphone amps.
The Bad parts:
> As with all cheap amplifiers, there is a slight hiss, this is only really audible if your an audiophile, or in classical or quiet music.
> In these cases you wouldn't want to get one anyway. :)
