- IMO this is an excellent pair of closed-back headphones, i.e. where you do not want to disturb others in the vicinity
- Outstanding sound reproduction given a good source and driver
- Very good passive sound isolation, good for an noisy office environment
- Exceptional low bass response (do a search for online tone generator and try it - 28Hz was there)
- The relatively heavy coiled lead may be cheaply and easily replaced with one of these: 1M Metre 2.5mm to 3.5mm Jack Audio AUX MP3 Cable Lead - you may need to use a craft scalpel or knife to trim the 2.5mm end to ease its access into the headphone slot.
- If you find the pressure on the ears too much, store the headphones mounted on a simple stack of 5 or more paperback books: then they are always comfortable when put on; add more books to taste
- An initial burn-in period of 48 hours or so is a good idea, easily done via the repeat option on your CD player or your favourite radio station
The downsides are relatively minor:
- Most computer audio chains of MP3/Flash software and hardware are rubbish really, compared to a proper hi-fi chain, and these headphones won't conceal that, quite the opposite
- You may find your ears get warm, but that's a trade-off as part of this particular over-ear configuration, there are many other options
- Just what I needed in busy office, shame the PC audio is so poor
Sound quality: Excellent value for money, provided you have a good soundcard.
Build quality: the coating on the pads peels off after about a year. The layer of fabric underneath is actually glued together, not stitched, so eventually they come apart and the foam becomes exposed. The foam will also compress over time.
The cable that attaches to the headphones: the insulation separated from the wires leaving the coloured wires exposed. I believe this problem is exacerbated by the coiled cable and the extra weight and strain it puts on the stress point where the cable meets the headphones.
Repair: You can send them in to Seinheiser for repair and they will come back looking brand new, if in my case your 1 year warranty is out of date, then it will cost something like £50.
So I got them repaired, and now, probably 2 years later, the pad coating is starting to go again. I don't think I will bother having them repaired again, I will probably just upgrade for hopefully a better build quality.
Overall, very impressed with the sound quality when I bought them, they eliminated my need for speakers for many years, which helped with space and avoiding causing noise disturbances. I paid £90 for them in 2011. The current price as of writing this review is £83. The RRP is artificially inflated to £150.
I'm not currently looking to buy new headphones but I would not consider these headphones at the current price as they are so old I would expect technological advances in this industry to have brought the price down more than £7 in 5 years.
Anyway, I just did a replacement pads Sennheiser Genuine Replacement Ear Pads Cushions For Pc350 Pxc350 Pxe350 Hd380 Hd380-Pro Hme95 Hmec250 Headphones Fit Also Pxc450 on it as the original ones got worn-out. What to say, price-wise these are probably the best value for money out there on the market. Very "neutral", typical Sennheiser product with a wide frequency spectrum and quite comfortable to wear unless your head has to go sideways through the door. The only downside worth of note is the bass line - if you are looking for a strong bass than go with something else since these headphones definitely won't make you happy.
Well the 'but' is that the cable (coiled like an old fashioned telephone one) is heavy and noisy. Noisy? I hear you ask?? Well it just keeps rubbing against your shoulder, your collar, your neck, whatever gets in the way, and the noise from the rubbing transmits into the headphone part itself. So, your listening experience is compromised, unless of course you sit like a a statue, which none of us do. So I had to buy a replacement cable (an uncoiled one) which set me back another £23 - I do NOT expect to have to fork out another £23 for a £90 pair of 'phones just to make them bearable! Even then, it isn't perfect. So, not the best buy I have made. Had 4 different Sennheiser models over last 40 years, this is not my favourite!
