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.
> 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 :)
> 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)
