I was in the market for some over the ear phones for my daily commute on the tube.
I currently own another (cheaper) pair of Sennheisers, and recall being astonished at the excellent sound and build quality delivered for a very affordable price, which led me towards this purchase.
They look very, very nice;
They are exceptionally comfortable (I thought I would miss leather ear cups, but I am a convert - I can barely stand to use my other earphones);
They are built very well (strong, sturdy and able to withstand constant packing/unpacking)
Sometimes I prefer to wear earphones with no music playing through them just to keep the rattle of the tube out of my ears - and these do that very well
Excellent value for money compared to other more 'fashionable' brands on the market
Sennheiser have been doing this for years and obviously know their way around a pair of cans
Cord is thin, not sure how well it will do in the long term
There is a fair amount of leakage which means I don't blast music whilst I'm commuting, however I'm okay with this
No case for the headphones
All in all I'm very pleased with this purchase; I would not hesitate to recommend.
