Top Customer Reviews
The sound quality, for Sennheiser's, is a bit disappointing. Frankly I expected better, but it's not the worst I've heard.
The wire is quite thin, which is a bit disconcerting, but it shows no sign of wear after a few weeks of fairly rigorous use, so I'm not concerned now. The 3.5mm jack at the end is at a right angle, which is a bit old school, but not really detrimental at all.
The headphones include a series of different sized buds for people with smaller or bigger ears, and a little carry bag and sport clip (for attaching the earphones to your t-shirt) is also provided, contrary to other reviews.
I chose the in-ear rather than flat faced version, but the noise cancelling still isn't great. With other in-ear Sennheisers, I've found that you'll struggle to hear what's going on around you without even turning the music on, but with these I can still occasionally hear the gym's own music when I've got mine on. It's no biggie though; I'm sure some people would like to retain some connection with their surroundings!
In terms of music quality, they offer a good, clear, general range. If you want some headphones for work in a sound studio, these aren't for you, but for general sports use I think they're great.
For me, lose one point on the weak noise cancellation.
This design means that i can place the ear bud in my ear canal and the brace puts pressure on the ear to help hold them in place.
Unfortunately for me, prolonged use of the headphones causes some significant discomfort to my ears because of the pressure required to hold them in place.
Despite the fact that it hurts after a while, they are still the only pair of in-ear headphones that i have found that actually stay in ear.
The sound reproduced by these headphones is good enough to listen to your music and is capable of holding quite high volumes without distortion.
The cable is long enough to be used with a device in your top pocket or in an arm band but depending on your height you may struggle to use them in a trouser pocket. I'm 6' 4" and the cable to just too short, by a couple of inches.
All in all though a good product for the money and well worth the purchase.
The headphones are well built, they are as rugged as can be expected for the size. They hold the ear extremely well (I have no idea how they thought up the in ear mechanism or how it works so well, but bravo). Whilst talking about build, the inside ear component is made of rubber which effectively adds a sweat shield from the speaker part itself from your horrible sweaty head as you pound the asphalt, the downfall of many of my old headphones. Big tick VG for the sweatproof system. There are two different sizes of rubber ear pieces so if you have ears like Hilary Swank then they should still be as good a fit as for people with more conventionally sized ears.
The sound quality is about as good as you can expect for the price, the bass is deep enough, treble is full and not tinny and the mids are balanced well, all in all quite capable of clearly belting Ministry of Sounds latest shameless rehash of classic house anthems.
If you have the ear fidelity of a vampire bat and want crystal clear sound while you are working out then you are probably better off with the over head things that people seem to use in gyms, probably not so good for running though (and those people look pretty humorous too) or get some space age tech from Bose if such things exist, and pay the premium that comes with it. Remember sound quality is pretty much a function of price and £40 or so will not give you the same quality of sound that £300 will, but who wants to spend that much money on a set of grubby headphones that are going to get covered in rain mud and sweat.Read more ›
