Right, first off AMAZING PACKAGING. Second off, you DO get all the accessories: all ear buds, the little hooks, everything.
Sound quality is good but they need a while to warm up, also make sure your using the right size ear buds as they need to be fitted properly to get the whole picture, push them in, wiggle them about you'll know when you have them fitted right, trust me. The isolation is incridible and a little scary when crossing a busy road! But for sitting at home, drowning in music, a book or drawing or whatever: outstanding.
Unfortunately the right ear peice broke within a month for me but Amazon had a replacement sent to me the day after i informed them, and the broken pair was collected 3 days later as requested; so no problemes there.
They come with a 2 year warranty from Sennhieser as standard (which seems reasonable for £!). The Smart control mic does only works with iphones, tried it on my htc running windows mobile (6.5), and i could start and stop music and redial the last call on my call log, but that was it, mic didnt work etc. Saying that, was the same price as the earphones without a smart mic so no loss for me.
Other than that, great bass if you turn it up, good response range, and its worth tweaking your EQs on your mp3 player for each song: these earphones mean business!
I would however strongly advise anyone buying a high end set of earphones to do there homework! I spent a total of about 12 hours researching earphones tech specs, response range, reviews, etc. Compared Beats, Atomic Floyd, Sennhieser, Sony, everyone. Sennhieser are still solid as far as i can hear. Hope this helped!
