die after six months,
Although they are really comfortable and sound quality is good.... the right headphone gradually get quieter and quieter till it eventually dies at a round the 4-6month mark.... This happened on both my original pair and on the replacement pair I got from the apple store.
Not worth the money but may be temped to buy them again if they where about £10 somewhere as they were good while they lasted.

Mine were worn out after two months... The wire must be extremely soft.

Yes, I've had several pairs now. They sound great but anything stops them working. The first time my cat batted it and I thought 'fair enough, she's got sharp claws' but I'm now replacing my 4th or 5th pair which have lasted maybe a month.

I thought that all these headphones have a two year guarantee? Have you tried returning them?

It's worth noting that those sold by Market Place sellers are FAKES!!! AVOID - DO NOT BUY UNLESS FROM AMAZON!!! DO NOT BE RIPPED OFF BY THESE CONMEN ON AMAZON MARKET PLACE!!!!
Here is the link to buy from Amazon.

I thought so too, but risked a tenner. Maybe I was lucky, but they look and sound exactly like my 1st pair off Amazon which lost one channel.

well they are about a tenner now! just had mine and sounds is fair enough and it functions on my HTC Desire, although it is supposedly designed for iphone.
I have a set of cx 400 's also which have broken twice in 2 years. the seller FREEPOST SALES (or something) is just about the accept the broken set that was a replacement for the original broken set I bought 20 months ago. I dont expect these (MM50 or CX400) to last very long!

Experienced exactly the same. Not sure what it is but when these headphones (and other sennheisers ) work they are top quality sound. However they are not robust and after 3-6 months they always just randomly die, I am guessing due to due poor quality connections or materials. Such a shame because if Sennhesier could add longevity they would win in this market, rest is great, ie look, feel sound etc
