Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sennheiser PX 100-II Foldable Open Mini On-Ear Headphone - Black (Electronics)
Take the already great sounding original px100, tighten up the low end, refine the high end and balance the mid to make it a little less dark sounding than it's predecessor, then add strength to the headband by making it thicker and more sturdy, add a touch of beautiful styling and what you get is an outstanding portable headphone that blows anything in it's class out of the water, the design has stayed the same, so it still folds neatly to fit in the provided pouch, better than the plastic case that came with the original px100 imo, gone has the y cable, now single sided and tangle free, the comfort is exactly the same also with the padding on the headband, all i can say is the best just got better and a must buy, especially if you were a fan of the original px100, i love them!

I love the original PX 100 as well as it was light as a feather;is this significantly heavier? The only weak point the old one had which broke on mine was the 3.5 mm jack which I thought was way too long; is it shorter in this version? if the jack was small like the iPod earphones that would be great.

strangely, even though these new px100's are much better built, the weight feels the same, i listen to mine for prolonged periods of time with no issues, they feel every bit as comfortable as the originals, the jack plug is the same shape as the originals but with a rubber feel to it which is moulded to the single cable, wether it is an improvement over the original px100's, only time will tell, hope this helps.

Hi A. Bond,
I haven't tried them with a computer but i have used them from my tv and they work fine, so they should be ok, they really are ideal for extended listening though, very light and comfortable, they adjust with a simple sliding mechanism in steps, if you have never owned a set of the original PX100's, i really can't stress enough how good these little headphones are, they produce sound much bigger than they look.
