This review is from: Sennheiser PMX60 Open Dynamic Neckband On-Ear Headphones (latest version) (Electronics)
This is now the 3rd time I've bought a pair of these same headphones; not because they are badly made, but because they are worth buying again at the end of their life.

Fit: Just plain comfortable. Your mileage may vary, but for me, these are the first neckband/over-ear headphones that don't squeeze, pinch, rub or make my ears uncomfortably hot, and yet they don't fall off during exercise. They're very light and you really don't notice the weight.

Sound: For music, these headphones have a rich, mellow tone that's happy at both ends of the scale. For spoken word, they are crisp and sharp and leave you confident that the voice you're hearing is the voice that got recorded, rather than a pitch-shifted variant. I won't doubt that a set of £100 closed cups would be better, but they'd also be heavier, hotter and... well, a lot more expensive.

Resilience: I said I'd been through three pairs, and that's primarily because I brutalise mine by wearing them for walking or running. They survive rain, snow, and sweat without complaint, but the (one) weakness I find with this model is that the cable weight hangs on the soldered connections inside the earpiece, and will eventually pull loose due to the constant tug with each step. I get about 12-18 months out of each pair however, which I consider acceptable for the price.

Obviously these are open-cup headphones, and you will hear noise from around you as well as leak sound if you have your volume high, so choose right for your purpose. As a runner, I really like the ability to hear traffic when I'm crossing roads with these on, and I find them sensible in-office wear (assuming your office permits this). As long as you keep the volume reasonable, you'll be able to hear your phone and colleagues without disturbing anyone.
