For Short People Not Keen On Bass
on 30 January 2015
Having previously had a pair of pretty basic (and cheaper) Sennheiser, I was expecting a lot from these.
As with any headphones, the most important feature has to be the sound, and generally I found these to be lacking somewhat. I'm not exactly an audio pro, but for me the bass and lower sounds were lacking, which made the overall listening experience a little flat, especially in comparison to the big, wide, full sound I was getting from Sennheiser. As others have said, the sound is very clear and crisp but just didn't give me the full listening experience I was after, and most of the time I found myself having to turn up the volume higher than normal to be satisfied.
The design, build quality and fit are great. I loved the tiny buds, the flat cable and the remote worked perfectly. I did however find the cable to be a little short. Ok for me as I'm not that tall, but if you are, or wear your trousers pretty low you might find it a bit of a stretch.
A nice pair of headphones, but I think there's better out there sound wise for not much more money.
