These headphones are a pleasure to wear, although the only downside is that they do tend to exert a bit too much pressure on the ear, but then this makes sure that you can hear it properly so not a bad thing.
I think that these headphones seem to be built really well, they feel a bit plasticky but overall i dont think the build is bad at all.
In the upper range of tones these headphones are pretty good, they could possibly do with slightly more clarity that you find on vastly more expensive headphones but really im just being picky.
Where these headphones really shine is the bass. Alot of headphones these days seem to work on the principle of more thump = better headphones, but that isnt the case at all and on this set sennheiser have got it absolutely spot on. They are not lacking bass at all but instead of a massive muffled thump, the bass is very smooth rich and deep ( for example club music sounds great without it feeling as though you are being repeadedly punched in the side of your head)
When i listen to songs with these 'phones i hear things i didnt even know were there and extra little bits of information that most headphones loose due to unsponsiveness or too much thump in the bass. It also helps alot if you play decent quality audio into them, for example 320k mp3, WAV, or my personal favourite, apple lossless.Read more ›
The only problem is that other people will hear your music, or at least the trebles, due to the open-cup design, but I am convinced that this is why the sound is so 3D-like.
They are very loud, in terms of output outwards of the ear. Its is very easy for others to hear your music, but that doesn't really bother me.
People have described them as 'ghetto' and 'old school' so yeah. I don't know what you think of that, but I think it's awesome! They look great around your neck too!
After a period of time though, certain audio levels would cause the headphones to crackle - this was extremely irritating. Eventually not long outside warranty, one ear-piece stopped working. I thought this was just some random wear and so I bought the exact same model being happy with the comfort level.
This next pair did the exact same thing and just outside warranty but it was the opposite ear-piece that failed.
This experience has put me off the Sennheiser brand but it's so hard to find affordable, comfortable headphones with good quality audio that I may end up buying Sennheiser again. It certainly won't be any of this type though.

I bought these as a replacement. My original set of Sennheiser's was run over by the vacuum cleaner and the lead was damaged.Published on 7 Jan. 2013 by Paul Phillips
For the price, you'll be hard pressed to find a better pair of headphones out there. Really good sound quality and you dont even need to "break" them in. Read morePublished on 2 Jun. 2011 by ZahidT

"Unfit to play music" is the only definition that comes to my mind. They squeak and crackle even at moderate volume. The bass is too loud and muddy. The treble lacks definition. Read morePublished on 19 Nov. 2010 by Mario
