I had higher expectations than what these phones deliver - in a side-by-side comparison with a similarly priced Sony MDR 7506, the Sony beats these easily on sound quality, clarity and response. Of course, this is a subjective test as I am not an audio professional. The much maligned (probably on account of their price) Bose QC2 put up a better show as well. The overall construction quality of the Senns and Bose seem to be similar - and both are inferior to the Sony MDRs. What is amazing is the flimsy cable these Senns have - the audio connector seems to be OK, but right where the cable comes out of the phones, I am not sure it would stand up to regular carefree use. One would have to be aware that this could be the weak part of the device.
They are worth the money if the price you get is 40 or below. Definitely not worth 80 or more they show the regular price to be,
not audoiphile - but close / sound is clear and well balanced w/good bass / they do not leak sound out or in (great for airplane - and I did check it out) / phones are comfy - but not for a long time - so if you are looking for something to wear all day, look elsewhere! for the price - ! - this cans performance wise are outstanding! highly recommend!
I got these on sale and paid about a third of retail. Excellent (sort of normal for Sennheiser) sound, but the cable is thinner than the cable on my ipod headphones. I expect it wont last through the month. But that said, I like the sound.
Recommend for any fan of hip-hop and electronic music. The bass sounds just right and they are very light weight.
thought I would use these for watching TV but the cord is too short. Light weight but low quality
Got this a few weeks earlier for the same price. They're OK at the sale price, but they are a bad deal otherwise. The cord is short on this S model, but they are comfortable. They don't provide much nose isolation.
My primary beef is that they don't have the "sparkle" I'm used to hearing with Sennheiser cans.
I bought this because of the discount it offers. But the quality of sound seems nothing surprising for Senn's Headphones. Just like a ordinary one.
