4-0 out of 5 stars Can't fly without them
These headphones are great!I fly 2-3 times a month, and the airplne noise (especially when you sit near the back of the plane) was getting highly annoying.My iPod earbuds would hurt my ears after a few hours, sicne they were turned up so loud, so I tried a pair of Sony in-ear buds, after reading some great reviews.They were worth the $30, but they didnt block out enough noise... so I did some research and, like most people, narrowed my search down to these Sennheisers and the Bose version.I really couldnt justify buying a pair of $300 headphones (same price as an iPod), and the fact that they were getting mixed reviews also made me skeptical.I did try them in a store, but I wanst impressed enough to drop the $300.I ordered the Sennheisers based on price, reviews, and coworker recommendation, and I am not disappointed at all!They block out a lot of the airplane noise... enough to listen to music or watch a movie comfortably.My ears dont hurt anymore, and I fell noticably refreshed when I get off of the plane... especially if I was able to sleep (you definitely sleep better with these on, even if you dont connect them to an audio source).

As a quasi-audiophile, I would say that the audio quality is above average.If you want a noise-cancelling feature, then you have to give-up some of the audio quality.I also feel that all Bose speakers and headphones are highly overrated and overpriced (Cambridge Soundworks has much much much better speakers, for a much better price... they dont make headphones though).All in all, I would definitely recommend these headphones... if you shop around you can get them for as low as $109... at that price, it is an exceptional deal.

My only complaint is the overall style of them.hey are kind of ugly (look like they are out of the 80s), and I would prefer them to go around the back of the head, as opposed to over the top.Also, the "bar' that holds the batteries and noise cancelling unit is ugly and obtrusive.It would have been better if this was integrated into the headphones themselves, or place closer to the bottom where the headphone jack was.These are just style issues, though... the headphones work, and work well!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not very impressive
I bought these after reading some excellent user reviews, but wasn't very impressed. The noise canceling is minimal in everyday surroundings, which I expected, but when I tried them on an airplane which was my main intended use, the results were not as good as I expected and I was able to hear a lot of low frequency rumble from the plane. They certainly make a difference and made it more enjoyable to watch a movie, but I don't think they are worth the price. The sound quality is quite good but aren't comparable at all to the Bose in my opinion, which had the 'wow' factor for me. I haven't tested the Bose noise-canceling on a plane yet so I can't comment on that comparison. I did try a cheap pair of noise-canceling headphones in a shop and was amazed at the amount of noise it canceled since most headsets claim they are intended mostly for low noise. Unfortunately I can't remember the brand!
In summary, I wouldn't recommened the Sennheisers, neither the noise-canceling nore the sound quality are worth the price. I'm going to sell mine and pay the extra for the Bose.

4-0 out of 5 stars Most of what I wanted is here.
I first used these headphones on a school trip to an amusement park.I sat at a table in the food court and they blocked 90% of the conversations of people at other tables and walking past.I was still aware of the roar of the rides and the screams of the riders, but they were sufficiently muted to let me hear the string bass(jazz) in detail.The ability to block out the midrange noise and hear the acoustics of the room and the miking was a delight.I look forward to my flights back to Maine this summer, but I doubt that anything will defeat the noise of a turboprop puddlejumper.I am looking forward to Sennheiser's next model as possible family Christmas gifts.
I found these light and comfortable; I have disliked the feel of many previous headphones.I have not tried the Bose.I still want this product to cost less than $80.00.

4-0 out of 5 stars Functions well. Ugly design.
The noise reduction works well. On my back deck it subtracts
out all of the lawn mowers, traffic, and most of the flights
overhead, leaving only the birds and the rustling of the leaves
in the wind.

I also like how the headphones fold up. They are a practical
size for slipping in the already overstuffed laptop bag on
flights.

But these headphones are ugly. Not just ordinary ugly: butt
ugly. Sennheiser needs to hire an outside design firm for the
next release.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's good but not the best !
I am writing this review while using this product for the first time ;-). I have great expectations for this product by seeing the reviews. It's good but not exceeded my expectations (with this price).

As a headphone good. As a noise cancellation it's AVG. Because, it never cancels all the noise around you. That's for sure. Only say 65 to 70% of noise.

Final suggestion, if you are looking for only noise cancellation there is no other option than this (BOSE is there, which is too expensive). If you are looking for a decent headphone go for a 10$ one next door.

Good luck,

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but definitely overrated
The Sennheiser PX100 have wonderful detail and high frequencyreproduction. They can reproduce subtle details of the acoustic ambience of a recording. The stereo imaging is outstanding. They are the most comfortable headphones I have worn; the padding along the band is a nice touch, and the pressure against the ears is light. And even though they are light weight, they seem to be sturdy.

They lose points for three things: Coloration, exaggerated claims of sound output, and weak low frequency reproduction.

The PX100, like other Sennheisers I have heard, have a cold, plasticky sound. This makes the violas, which are strong in the midrage, on some recordings sound like they are made of plastic, rather than wood. You may be able to adjust to this coloration over time, but if you do some A-B comparisons with more neutral headphones, the problem becomes obvious.

The PX100s claim to produce a sound output of 114db, which is unusually high. Maybe on some bench test equipment, but in your ears, they are among the less efficient headphones I have used. I have to use my portable at full volume for many recordings, and even then I sometimes have trouble hearing low volume passages, such as in Stravinsky's Firebird, especially because these let in so much background noise. With my Philips HE 592 in ear headphones, I have to cut my portable's output down from a max of 32 to about 22 or even 14. The Koss KTX PRO1 claims an output of 103 db, but they sound significantly louder than Sennheisers, which claim an output of 114 db. Is something wrong here?

The Sennheiser PX 100 claim to go down to 15 Hz. This simply is not realistic. The bass is weak, overall. My guess is that bass reproduction begins to fall off around 120 Hz, and then drops off around 50 Hz, much like a good modern bookshelf speaker. I base this on listening to a CD of Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3, the "Organ," specifically, the Seiji Ozawa recording with the Orchetre National de France. The second movement has a series of descending pedal tones. There are notes missing with the PX100. Oh, I listened to it on a Sony DVP-S7000, which has a spectacular headphone amp, so it wasn't the equipment's weakness. I did a comparison with the Koss KTXPRO1 headphones - the bass was there, all of the notes, clean, tight and distinct. I listened again with the Sennheisers, and the bass was very thin on all the pedal tones. The Sennheisers have lower overall output, so comparison is a bit tricky. Nevertheless, the low bass is largely missing. But if you use the bass boost button on your portable this may give you the bass you are looking for.For me, the bass actually became too boomy on my classical music. An equilizer would probably work better.

While there is a touch of midrange coloration on the Koss headphones, I find it easier to tolerate than the Sennheisers. Sennheisers have had this plasticky sound at least since the 70s. It is almost as though they are proud of it, and some reviewers actually seem to like it. But do an A-B commparison and you might change your mind. On the other hand, I suppose it depends on what music you listen to.

Note: I need to backtrack a bit on this. Precise positioning of these, and most other headphones, is important for minimizing coloration and maximizing high frequency sound reproduction. I was inclined to assume this was not so important with these over the ear headphones with large driver, but I was wrong. You need to experiment to find the right position for each ear - remember, your head is probably not symetrical. Listen for the clearest sound. Then adjust the headphone band so it rests lightly on your head while holding each earpiece in the right spot. Then you might fine tune the positioning on your ear a bit. I found this can significantly reduce the plasticky coloration.

Thanks to the slightly larger earpieces, the headphones stay in position, and with minimal pressure from the metal headphone band. Sennheiser gets 5 stars plus for their band design. It uses a tiny ball joint to allow the earpieces to move easily in any direction. And the foam cover is removable for washing.

One limitation of A-B comparisons is that the brighter sounding headphones tend to appear better when you first put them on. However, I find that if they are too bright, harsh or thin, they get tiresome after a while, an hour or two, whereas darker sounding headphones open up over time, and do not become as tiresome. So you need to do both types of comparisons.

Another problem is source equipment. The Sennheisers produce so much detail that they may be overkill if you use a portable and do not record at high bitrates. Worse, they may even display all the warts and distortion of your sound device or older recordings more than a cheaper headphone. This is not a problem for the Sennheisers on audiophile-quality equipment.

The fact that they let in a lot of surrounding sound may be an advantage in some circumstances, in others, not.

And it is important to note that these headphones definitely require breaking in. They sound terrible when first plugged in. So hook them up, turn them on at moderate volume and let them run for a few hours or even a few days without listening.

My advice, however, is that if you don't already own the Sennheisers, you might want to consider buying two of the Koss KTX PRO1 headphones for the price of one Sennheiser PX 100. The Koss do not have quite as much detail or the high frequency reproduction, but they are close enough, and have less coloration, in my opinion. They are the way to go if you are looking for deep bass. They are defintely the best bargain around, and may be easier to tolerate over long listening stints. If only they were a bit more comfortable. If Koss would copy the Sennheiser band design, they would have it made.

On the other hand, if you already have the Sennheisers, do not buy the Koss. If you like the Sennheisers, once you get adjusted to the sound leave well enough alone. They are very good headphones.

5-0 out of 5 stars A couple days in...
We really don't need any more reviews for these wonderful phones (but what the heck!). I feel pretty strongly about these just a few days in. I use them mostly with my laptop (generic sound card) and with my Creative Zen Touch. I am also looking forward to plugging them into my Creative Audigy card on my desktop, just have not had the opportunity. The reviews are correct. Unbelievable sound reproduction: bass, treble, mid it's all there. I find that the diverse music I listen to sounds good and with the creative buds, for example, I always found myself futzing with EQ settings to get the best sound (a HUGE benefit, IMHO). Good bye earbuds hello comfy headphones!!!! BTW, I found the folding easy to accomplish. Perfect! Enjoy...

5-0 out of 5 stars pretty much the perfect headphones
These headphones sound great and can be worn for hours without causing significant ear discomfort.I use mine at the gym and at home when I want to get some good sound from my laptop. Heck they even sound better than the sound system in my car.These things are lighweight but have held up great after hundreds of hours of abuse. I plan on stocking up on several pairs of these since good headphones are hard to find at this price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best headphone under $50, ever.
Wow, nice! These are by far the best sounding lightweight headphones I've ever owned.They are also VERY comfortable.The case is well designed. My only complaint is that the cord is a little short, and it is rather fine, so I'll use my extension cord.

5-0 out of 5 stars Versatile and flexible
These headphones are excellent and for the money I think they are great value.I was looking for headphones that I couuld wear whilst wearing my glasses when working on my laptop.I wanted quality music reproduction and also the ablility to use them with my small MP3 player, my PC and my Hi-Fi system.These fit the bill on all counts.I have six pairs of headphones but I use these all the time - even in preference to my more expensive Koss and Audio-Technica ones.

Another big plus is that they fold up, making them easy to carry.They do come with a plastic carrying case and this is the only negative thing I can find to say as I have not yet mastered the technique of getting the phones into it!

Good clear bass from a small open design.Overall music reproduction is excellent and I can wear them for hours without fatigue.These are great headphones. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible ... Crap ... Stay away ...
    I owned a pair of JVC wireless headphones for years.I thought this pair would be nice since they are more compact and received fair reviews.You have to be practicallt standing in front of them for them to work.They cut out when you are standing beside them.Save your money and go with JVC.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great buy!
    I've had these headphones for about a month now, and they have performed excellently throughout.

    My previous set of wireless headphones required constant tuning and often lost the signal of the base station.These headphones, conversely, have a large range of reception and generate little static throughout that area.Charging is simple--simply place the headphones on the base station to recharge.While the included rechargeable battery supposedly has a 15-hour limit, I've yet to lose power--although I've never really put them to the test, as recharging is so simple that it becomes reflexive.
    The battery can also be replaced by 60-hour AAA Bateries (not included).

    Sound quality is good--not as crisp as some high-end pairs of headphones, but about as good as a pair of around-ear headphones and certainly as good as traditional PC speakers.While there is a faint hissing noise produced by the headsets, I didn't find it annoying or hindering in gaming, listening to music, or watching movies.

    Bass is decent.

    My only issue with the headphones is that they don't turn on instantly when returning from "standby" mode, which they enter after a few minutes without use.The delay is only a second or two, however, and not a major concern.

    Otherwise, I wholeheartedly encourage the selection of these headphones.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ok for TV sound, not for music; get something cheaper
    I guess no matter what wireless technology is used -- infrared, 900Mhz, 2.4Ghz, whatever -- sound quality simply cannot be called "good."Of all the wireless headphones I've tried, none is good for music listening.The only use is for watching TV late at night without disturbing other occupants of your living space.This Sony infrared set is the same.It's no better or worse than other infrared sets.Be prepared for lots of hisses, even when you are just a couple feet away from the transmitter.

    While this Sony set is inexpensive, you can get a similar-performing pair sold under the Radio Shack brand at Radio Shack for under $20.For all the hisses and poor sound quality, I think that's a fairer price to pay.Radio Shack part no. 33-1234.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Died after 1 year
    I loved these headphones. Lightweight, never had to worry about charging them. You did have to stay in line of site with them, which was a little irritating. But my pair was flawed. After a few months the right side started to short out. The problem was in the volume control. It would short out at some levels. The right earpiece died completely at about 8 months. Now a few months later, both sides have shorted out. I bought them in December 03 and now January 05 they are dead. When I contacted Sony during warranty, I was given the choice to send them away for repair (I pay shipping). Seemed to be too much work and expense to save these headphones. Too bad. I liked the design.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal for students
    I received these around June 15, 2004, and on November 28, 2004, the battery finally ran out.I use these every day and every night to go to sleep by, and am not even always conscientious about turning them off or putting them in the charger, so I have found the lifespan of the included battery to be wonderful.If you live in any kind of shared room, as in a dorm or barracks, these are perfect.Mine are hooked up to my computer and I can watch movies, listen to music, and hear anything on the internet without my roommate having to hear what I'm listening to.Sound quality is perfectly acceptable for most normal people, and the limited range isn't an issue in a dormroom setting.I love these.
    (Update 22 March 2005-- I'm still using the original batteries.I have to make sure to put the 'phones in the charger more often, and have noticed a little deterioration in range and quality, but I'm sure these issues would be easily corrected by putting in fresh batteries.I go to sleep with them on my head every night and I wear them almost continuously when I'm at home.As I said before, ideal for students, long life, reliable, and a great buy.) ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent
    Up until a year ago, I had been using the Plantronics Audio 90 headset.I was pretty satisfied with that, as it had decent sound quality and a decent microphone.However, its main problem was its durability.I had them replaced a couple of times and when it broke after the warranty, I decided to spend a few extra dollars and splurge on a higher quality headset.

    WOW!All I can say is that the Sennheiser PC150 is superior in every way.I used to think Audio 90 sound quality was good, but the PC150 blew them away.At a recent LAN, my friend wanted to test out my headset, so we swapped for a bit.I was astounded at how bad his Audio 90 in comparison to my PC150.Likewise, he was impressed.Since then, I have bought high quality headphones for travel and their sound quality is only slightly better despite having a significantly higher pricetag.

    The microphone on my PC150 is also very good.I've listened to my recorded voice and it's crystal clear.On the other hand, there is a noticable amount of static coming from some of my friends' mics when we're on Ventrilo.I know it's not a server issue, as a friend who also owns a PC150 sounds crystal clear.

    But the PC150's durability impressed me more than anything else.The Audio 90 is notorious for its breakability; there are accounts of them breaking even when the owner takes perfect care of them.Well, I treat my PC150 like crap.Drop them on the table, drop them on the floor, roll over the cables in my chair, you name it.But they've taken these beatings and have continued to deliver.

    Congrats to Sennheiser for making such a great product.If you want a headset with outstanding sound, microphone, and structural quality, you won't go wrong with the PC150.It may cose twice as much as an Audio 90, but this one has lasted me longer than three of them.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great overall
    They sound great and the microphone works flawlessly with Ventrilo, but the headset is a bit too heavy for my taste and hurts my ears after about an hour of use. Otherwise I'd give them 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good headphone and great microphone
    I have had this for over 6 months, no problems so far. The product quality is very good. It feels comfortable when u put it on vs the other headsets I have used. The only issue is probabaly that this is not very portable and can get a bit too big for everyday use. But it does everything it advertises to do exceptionally well.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good microphone, poor headphones.
    I bought this in hopes that I could use this set to replace my desktop mic and Sennheiser HD497 headphones.The mic is impressive.Everyone on ventrilo says I sound 100 times better than I did with my 15 dollar mic.However, my problem is with the headphones.

    While I am no audiophile, I do like for my music to sound good.These headphones are no where near quality headphones.My 20 dollar Sony's sound better than these headphones.If you are just going to use these for gaming, they are fine.If you want to listen to music and game, get something else.If I find that something else, I will post it.3 stars for the mic but it wasn't worth 42 bucks.0 stars for the headphones.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best headsets
    Pros:
    -Best headset/headphones/earphones I have ever owned (though I am no audiophile)
    -Crystal clear sound at all levels
    -Awesome bass, very clear and loud
    -Very clear sounding mic, doesn't pick up background noise
    -Very comfortable, even if worn for 5 hours straight
    -Fits securely on my head, won't fall off
    -Good mic placement, away from face so there are no breathing sounds
    -Nice, long cord
    -Remote is very useful

    Cons (I'm nitpicking):
    -Most expensive headset/headphones/earphones I have ever owned
    -Maximum volume is not loud as I would like it, although I would never listen to it that loud.
    -Heavier than most cheaper headsets
    -Foam is a bit hard
    -Might hurt after a few hours if you have glasses, they don't cup around your ears like high quality headphones

    Overall, this was a great buy and I am very satisfied with this item and I would recommend it for anyone who needs a excellent headset. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great alternative to speakers.
    I use these as an alternative to PC speakers, I have a great set-up but the noise from PC games drives my Girlfriend crazy, she also dislikes most of the music I listen to so guess what I got for Christmas.

    The Headphones themselves are fairly comfortable and light, considering all the stuff they have on them. The sound is fantastic, it took a little bit of messing around with EQ settings but after that was done they sound just like a 5.1 system.

    The only thing that could be improved is battery life. Two AA's will get you two or three days before the headphones start beeping at you (to change the batteries). They give you a set of rechargeable but if you spend any significant time with them on you'll need to pick up another pair of rechargeable (maybe two, just in case).

    If your wallet can take the hit I would highly recommend these headphones.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best headphones money can buy.
    These headphones are pretty good. They're perfect for Apartments when you don't want to disturb the people living around you. I would suggest getting a home theatre system though, if you own a home. Headphones fit very comfortably, and have a surpring bass sound coming from such little speakers. If you have the money, they're worth it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars What you would expect
    They are exactly what you would expect for surround sound headphones. The surround sounds do sound like they are coming from behind you, the sound is not ear-blowing, mind-numbingly "surroundific" but it is better than, lets say, the surround effect you would experience using a good pair of headphones on a surround reciever on headphones surround mode.

    1-0 out of 5 stars looking for quality
    Not worth the money.Sound is ok you cannot dup 6.1 surround sound w/headphones.Save your money and get a good set of head phones and save $500.00. You will still experience sound travling rt to lft or lft to rt. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but you need to know some things, first
    Right. First off, i bought this thing, figuring it would work with my G5 iMac.
    I was wrong. Or logitech was shamefully lacking in their info for Mac users.
    It SAYS it can work with a Mac, but all I got was the headphones to work.
    I had to run out, and pick up this Egg looking thing, called iVoice2. It plugs
    into your USB slot, and allows you to use ANY PC mic/headset with your
    mac. It is $35-$50 (depending on where you buy it).
    But, on plus side, after you buy the iVoice2 from Macally, you can use ANY
    PC headsetwith mic you want. :)

    Now, on with the headset. This headset is a bit uncomfortable. I like the
    behind the ears headsets, but this one is made for big heads, or Large hair.
    It has the advantage of not being able to fall off, but it feels loose.
    The mic is great. It doesn't reach your mouth. It stops about 2/3rds of the way,
    but it does pick up some nice clear sound. I use it for recording voices for
    animation and small games I make.
    You DO need to turn up the GAIN in your computer, but after that, it's GOLD.
    The sound is clear,rich, and not Hissy. i prefer the mic to be closer to the mouth,
    because you have to speak up, to get nice levels. If you whisper, you will get
    recorded, but you will have to amplify it later in post, and my get some hiss.

    All and all, a good product. At the price, you can't do much better.
    The long cord is also a plus, when you have people reading from a script, and
    don't want them hunched over a table to speak into a desk mic.

    Another cool feature, is that the shields on the sides come off, and it comes with
    4 colors to place there (black, red, blue, orange), So you know which is yours.

    A better mic is the Plantronics DSP-100. It's USB, and has only one head phone,
    but it sound beautiful. It also costs $45.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not reliable.
    I bought this to use with my Skype (free internet phone service). Ihad high expectations and was happy with the low price. This product turned out to be horrible. After a couple months, three problems:
    1. Only the right ear of the headset is working now,
    2. The little volumn control thing is bad, it does not change volumn smoothly and you have to carefully turn it to some specific place for it to make the right noise.
    3. Connection to the computer not good. I have to press down on the connector with my fingers to hear anything.

    DO NOT BUY THIS

    I am editing this review, because this pair of earphones just completely went broke on me. I am angry!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best headset for your computer
    Given the price, the sound quality is very good. It's so clear & rich. You can use it only for internet chat or gaming, but also music listening.

    Speaking of comfort, I have worn them for 2 hours and my ears still don't have any sign of fatigue.

    I think they are worth the money.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Don't get these
    Comfort:
    Not sure if it's this brand, or all behind the neck headphones/headsets, but the are horribly uncomfortable for me.The plastic part that fits over your ear (between the top of your ear and your head) ends up hurting after about 10 mins of wearing these.My brother has a pair of altec lansing AHS-302 that are the same style, and he likes them.We are the same shape and build (6'2"), so I'm not sure if it's the brand or the style.

    Sound:
    The sound from these are lack luster.I mainly used them for playing online games and using teamspeak.I could hear other people's voices just fine, but the sounds on the game (BF1942) where nothing to write home about.I suppose for the price, I can't expect too much.

    Microphone:
    This microphone on this or horrible.It comes to the corner of your mouth (as designed) which I like.Problem is, you have to turn the sensitivity up to high to pick up your voice.Using teamspeak, the sound quality of the microphone was the worse of all friends logged in.I know that internet chat sound quality is not a great test, but everyone commented on how "tinny" the sound was from mine, as compared to everyone else (no one else was using these headsets).

    Conclusion:
    I would not recommend these even if you like the behind the neck headphones.The sound is rather lack luster and the microphone is one of the worse ones on the market.I took my back to the store and bought a set of over the ear (ear-cup) headsets from Altec Lansing (AHS-502).The AHS-502's where $25.They are far superior to the logitech, although the microphone one both are not as good as the Sennheiser PC-130's.I enjoy the performance of the AHS-502 sound much better than either of the other headsets though.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Headset for gaming and chatting
    Fits good on your head and sounds great. There is also the volume control on the wire. Fits comfortably around your ears and the cool red ear things look great. The only drawback I have is that I wish the microphone was on the other side. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good One
    I bought it thru Amazon.com last month.It has got a clear sound without any unwanted noise. I like the product.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Works well for a few months, then it dies
    Don't be fooled by people that review a product a few days after they buy it. I bought this headset a year ago and after 6 months ofeveryday use they began falling apart. The first thing I noticed was that the sound stopped working on one side after I dropped the headset one day. You will drop the headset, believe me. Sometimes you just forget they are on and jump out of your chair to pick up the phone or go to the bathroom. I had dropped the headset a few times before and nothing happened. After another month or so the sound in the right side would only work when the cord was positioned in a certain way. That's when I gave up on them.

    The headset is worth the money if it is used in a casual way... but for people who listen to music/play games/chat online on a daily basis I would NOT recommend this.

    If you think that what happened to me is a rare occurence... do a search online and read it from other people. This happens to others as well and is a design flaw in the headset.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT!
    I have to admit normally I don't really bother too much with all the review writing when it comes to items I purchase,but in this case I feel a good review is merited. I got this headset for about half of what I would've paid had I gone to my local computer store.

    I checked at several stores in fact for this headset after seeing several good reviews and couldn't find it anywhere for less than $35. Of course that means with the tax, gas, et all, I would have been spreading around $40 for the same headset elsewhere, so I was very pleased to see it on Amazon with free shipping et all.

    I must admit I am impressed with the quality of the headset.

    I had a Plantronics head set before, that I also paid about $30 for about two years ago that I have been using pretty much constantly due to a disability have and the need for using speech recognition to type. Because I use my headset for just about everything from doing e-mail to doing my job, usually while listening to CDs, I must admit I put considerable wear and tear on my headsets.

    I actually went through several of them until I finally got the Plantronics 40 set that I had been using. Except for a bit of tightness on my ears,which I never cared for, that headset held up very well to considerable daily use. The audio quality wasn't bad, and neither was the mike, so when the earpiece, finally broke, after such a long time I must admit I was pretty dismayed.

    I did my best MacGyver job, wiring the headset back on with a few garbage bag ties so that I could still use it in the meantime, but I also decided that it was time maybe to upgrade a little to a headset with some larger, more comfortable ear cups. Of course I looked at the Plantronics sets first, why wouldn't I after having such good results with the last set? But I also looked at other brands and read all the reviews there as well.

    After doing a considerable bit of reading,and checking out prices online I finally decided on this headset.

    What can I say except I am totally thrilled?

    This headset is far more comfortable than its predecessor, and the audio quality is just superb in terms of both listening to music and speech recognition. I am sitting here right now listening to a CD and voice typing and both are being done with minimal effort and great enjoyment on my part. This headset is a big improvement, even on the last one.

    Yup, I am definitely becoming a confirmed Plantronics fan!

    If this headset holds up half as well as its predecessor did, I will have absolutely no complaints!

    :)

    3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, Good sound. Short life.
    I've gone through two sets of these headsets. The first was good and worked fine till I accidently stepped on the cord and stood up at the same time, ripping the cord out of the headset. I ordered another pair, and they worked fine for 3 months, then the headphone parts stopped working, but the mic still works. For the price, these are pretty decent headphones, but they do not really have a long life. I think my next set of headphones will be the Logitech 980125-0403 Stereo USB Headset 200.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Good sound but very poor build quality
    I bought this after doing much research for a headset to use on my computer with occasional voice-to-text use. The mic works really well (great for voice applications), although the moveable boom is more marketing hype as it only moves 1 inch with little effect. It is bendable which is good. Audio quality for games and music is very good. Bass response is also surprisingly sufficient. It can output very loud music/sounds without distortion, much better than smaller headsets or earplugs.

    If you wear it for longer periods 1 hour+ you may find it hurts your ears.

    Also rebranded along the lines of Plantronics GAMECOM Digital Stereo PC Gaming Headset. Identical to the Audio .90 except for some extra printing and different packaging to compete with similar products from Logitech and others.

    Volume control works, but isn't very good quality as at max volume you may hear some noise during adjustment. There is also a built in mic mute switch which shows a red sticker when the mic off.

    There is also a small clip on the cable which you can adjust to clip to your shirt which keeps the volume control close to you or the cable away from your feet. I haven't really had a need to use it, but it does work.

    The plugs are gold plated and have colour coded rings for easy identification.

    BUT it is POOR QUALITY - the cable is long (great feature) but fairly thin. Cables on my previous cheapie US$10 Logitech headset were much better quality. After 3 months i noticed the left channel occasionally dropped out, then it permanently stopped working. I took it back to the shop and they took 3 weeks to get it replaced. Now 15 months later the left channel has stopped working agin!

    Now this seems like a trend :( I did some research with Google and i've seen stories of other Plantronics products having the same problem. When i jiggle the wire between the headset and the volume control the sound comes on and off. The weirdest thing is that the cable comes in the left speaker then gets routed to the right speaker via the headband. But the right channel works fine and the left does not.
    So I opened it up and found that they use a very small PCB to solder the wires together which is the weak spot. I ripped off all the wires, soldered the tips, twisted them together and resoldered them, such a waste of time but now it works again although the cover doesn't close properly.

    Also interesting that the warranty is only for 12 months. I'm unimpressed at paying US$50 for something of such poor manufacturing quality compared to $10 headphones which last much longer (the foam ear bits wore off my old Logitech after 3 years but it still worked fine).

    Recommend you try something else unless you're OK with replacing it after a year. I've seen it on sale as low as US$18! Open air-headphones are also great but leak much more sound to those around you than closed headphones. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars where the heck is the bass?
    There are a couple of things to rave about with the Senn px200.Its most charming feature is its compact foldable design.Secondly,its thd % is low, so sound is very very clean.The flattery stops there.

    I waited patiently like a saint for the bass to present itself after the "burn-in period."Well, the bass never really gets to where it needs to be for actual listening enjoyment.I didn't even have a moderately good time with these.Bass which isn't there to begin with will not miraculously appear all of a sudden...there is no bass, ABSOLUTELY NO BASS with the Senn px200 period.I'm no basshead by any means, but come on.Where the heck is the bass?

    Alongside its basslessness,the Senn px200 is also a bright little performer.Ouch...that's two strikes...no bass and shrill on top of that.Hmnn... needless to say, I sent these back to Amazon.

    Seriously ponder whether these are worth the purchase.Consider the Sennheiser hd 202 for a closed design headphone.For about 25 dollars,it's great-sounding and easily portable.



    5-0 out of 5 stars Near perfect form and function
    I bought these a little over 6 months ago.This is the best headphone purchase I've ever made.I use them at the office for listening to music. For the price, you can't beat them.They produce great quality sounds and the do an admirable job blocking out other sounds too.Full rich sound, good for everything from dance to classical.

    The industrial design aspect is simply amazing.They are very comfortable to wear.They collapse in to a great form factor for either putting in your desk or in your bag.The cord, itself, uses a sort of sliding binder to either keep the right and left cords neat when the headphones are put away.The case is the best I've ever seen for headphones.Everything gets neatly tucked away or wound up so that storage is simple and safe.

    Simply a great product

    3-0 out of 5 stars Adequate
    Sennheiser has built an overall ok pair of headphones. Although priced high, these headphones introduce a new, very durable case system. These headphones actually fold up and go into a very small transport case, which seems to stand past lots of banging and hitting.

    The headphones are light and quite comfortable. Although these headphones could be much better than what they are, I'd generally call them adequately, they do their job. The sound quality is good, though it misses that so important base.

    Think twice before buying these, investigate other options as well, though if you settle on these, I don't blame you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars very good for portable devices
    sennheiser px200 is a good pair of headphones for those who would use them for a portable device. Small, compact, comfortable, they also sound very good compared to what you can get from this size of headphones. The sound is crystal clear and very good for acoustic music. With other types of music you will find them a bit sharp. But if you have adjustable EQ then they are fine. Good bass too. Only a few flaws: do not isolate you from the outside noise 100%; give a weak static noise when used with PC or something more powerful. I use them with my iRiver cd player and they are just the perfect match for it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Headphones
    I've had my new PX200s for a couple of days now and no, they are not as good as the HD-414s of my youth but they are great portable headphones.

    I would just like to know what engineer was working on his masters when he designed the case.It does take some time getting used to.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Better than Plantronics, but still not great
    I had a Plantronics DSP-500 headset that quit working the same day I received it. So I bought this Logitech and have had more reliable service from it, and the audio quality seems comparable to the Plantronics. I'm happy with this unit because it didn't break on day one and still seems to be going strong. I do wish there was something more professional available but it seems that most computer headsets aren't that great yet.

    I use this for Skype conversations and don't really have any complaints with the audio quality. It's still better than a telephone.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Headsets
    I recentlybought, and returned the next day, a Logitech headset which connected to the audio inputs of my MAC G4. The microphone was apparently dead out of the box. I have had similar quality problems with products from this company before.

    2-0 out of 5 stars bad mechanical design
    I had it for 10 months, used it daily for internet voice chat and a bit of music listening. No big demands. Had clear sound, the mic was fine, the USB convenient. However, although I treated the unit with utmost care, after 10 months the wires in the cable connected to the inline volume controller broke up, and I could hear the sound through the phones only at a specific cable bending angle. Then, after 3 days, the wires totally gave up. I can not get to the wires since the volume unit seems to be welded together. Will try to get RMA.

    1-0 out of 5 stars don't bother buying this one
    I went to Staples and found this one and read the features and was impressed and wanted to try as rest that fall in the category are a little pricy! but after i had this product for 4 days i am disappointed at the workman ship, the usb interface (black little rectangle thing) is bulky and i could not wear the phones comfortably as i had lot of ear rubbibg despite the soft earpads, I just did not like this product and i am shipping this back to amazon and am planning on getting SONY MDR-NC6 which i tried at my friends place.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Nice concept bad execution
    Headphones and mic work well enough.Though I had the same problem as the Dr right out of the box.It tries to adjust the volume to zero.My work around was a tube of Chapstick and a mini wood clamp to hold the up volume control button in.This causes the volume adjustment to stop so I coulduse the headset.I like it but it's definitely getting returned/exchanged. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Item, EXTREMELY CRAPPY SERVICE FROM AMAZON
    WHAT A CROCK - FREE SHIPPING.Little did I EVER suspect it was by the US POST OFFICE using REGULAR MAIL ( not even priority MAIL)!!!Amazon's competitors all will ship by FAR MORE DEPENDABLE, RELIABLE and FAST carriers such as FEDEX, UPS or AIRBORNE very often FREE (Zip Zoom Fly has FREE 2nd DAY FEDEX on many items)!!!I ordered these headphones on 25 May and it was stated that they were in stock, delivery estimated 2 May (about a week).USPS records show that the Post Office picked them up 29 MAY, and Amazon's website now has a delivery estimate of June 4 - June 6.It is now JUNE 8, WHERE IN THE HELL ARE THEY?The USPS says they were shipped by REGULAR MAIL (again, how disgusting!) and that they are in a mail facility in MARYLAND!!!I REALLY NEEDED THESE HEADPHONES as a gift.I would advise anyone to look at shipping options of competitors (just froogle the product) first BEFORE ordering ANYTHING FROM AMAZON!!!The fact that the regular mail is so poor is why UPS, FEDEX, Amazon and others EVEN EXIST.If you don't mind sitting around 2 WEEKS waiting to get something that Amazon claims is in stock and can be delivered quickly for free go ahead and order from them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Sony stand aside
    I have always had Sony headphones and been moderately happy. These are really much better. Very crisp, full frequency spectrum. I have read a lot about the Bass being light, but mine had plenty of bass right out of the box. These headphones made my Zen Touch come to life. I can hear noise in the music that I have never heard. In live recordings you can hear every noise the audience makes. If you are looking for good, inexpensive headphones for an MP3 player, pick these. You won't be sorry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars outstanding value for low powered units
    Sonic Quality:These phones have a very good, balanced sound that covers the entire range well.Bass was a sufficient but a bit light when first used, but has warmed up quite well after burning in a several hours on my integrated amp.Highs and mids are very clear and sharp.These phones are easily driven by very low powered units (bought this for a 1-AAA powered MP3 player) and reach high volume levels without distortion.Given more power (from my amp) it sounds even better, but the short cord makes this impractical for non-portable sources.

    Comfort:Very comfortable, as the phones are very light weight and the band is highly compliant.Stays on my head, even though I wear glasses and the phones have to compete for space on my ears.The open air design helps keep the ears cool.

    Value:Outstanding.Worth several times what it is going for on Amazon.

    Other issues:Other reviews have commented about the high level of sound leakage, which may bother others.In truth, you have to really play them LOUD for that to happen.At volumes I am comfortable with, external sound does not travel more than a few feet.I do agree that you will not want to use in on airlines, as your seat-mates will hear your music, but you will want closed-ear or noise-reduction phones for that anyway.I also own the PMX-250 for travel, does a great job.

    You will also need to burn-in the phones before assessing if the sound suits you.Don't judge based on first impressions.

    The cord is indeed about 3 feet, but this seems to be the perfect length for its intended purposes.It suits MP3 players mounted on your arm, belt, or front shirt pocket without undue excess.An extension, if you really need one, is only a few bucks too.

    You will not be unhappy with these phones, unless you only like bass or it does not sit well on your head.Personal tastes and shapes.Nothing this light and portable can handle much higher levels of bass anyway.

    I decided to get these after looking through many headphones on the market.I got them with my iPod Photo 30 GB.They are seriously awesome.The PMX 60 is very stylish, comfortable, and produces excellent sound.Whether it is treble or bass, it gives a perfect balance of crispy sound that nicely flows into each ear.They can also reach an incredible high volume.It sounded more like my laptop speaks the moment I laid it on the table!I tried jumping around, biking and running with these on, and not only do they stay on, my ears did not feel any discomfort or pain after many hours of exercise.

    Now as for the cons, the two biggest factors, which were mentioned by other reviewers, is the openness as well as cord length.They weren't as big of a problem for me.Firstly, I find the fact it the sound leaks to my advantage because I tend to listen to very loud music.Having to be aware of my surroundings made me turn down the volume.I'm 6'1", I sag my pants, and although the cord is only 1 meter (which is fairly short) I could drop my iPod in my pocket and still have some slack.So that wasn't a problem for me as well.

    In conclusion, these are definitely worth the price because of its extremely high value, nice sound, good comfort and style factor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed!
    Don't be fooled by "greater frequency responses", "mega bass", "gold plated 3.5mm jacks", and etc.Granted, those things can impact the sounds quality to a certain extent but sound speaks for itself without any advertising and the sound of these headphones are phenominal for the price.Specifically, the treble is as crisp as i've ever heard it.Not only are they stylish and smooth looking but they fit any size head; even my big melon.They fit snug, not too tight, and i enjoy the fact that i can keep them around my neck when not in use.The cord length of 1.4m is perfect for me.There IS something in a name and Sennheiser has proven that to me. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great sound, not quite as great a fit
    I've had these for about a year now, and for the price, they are a great set.They seal out external noise very well; with music playing even at moderate levels, I can't hear my coworkers talking in the cubes next to me.They're also very good for first person shooter games, I picked up on very slight noises that I ordinarily wouldn't hear on my other headphones.

    The fit is definitely not universal, however.I don't have an overly large head but these cause discomfort after about an hour or so.They just squeeze too tight!I use them at work because I'm normally wearing contacts, but if I wear these with my glasses on they press my ears against the stems so hard it is far from comfortable.

    For anyone with a small-medium head size, these are a great set of closed ear headphones for the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Bassists
    These are perfect for me.I use these for practicing my bass playing as well as for playback on recording applications.The bass is terific, but doesn't drown everything else out.They were a little tight to wear, but after a couple of days they fit perfectly.I find them to be very comfortable even after an hour or two.The cost isn't overwhelming for the overall sound quality.
    the chord length is long so you won't have to buy an extension.
    Overall these are perfect for what I need, and at the right price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The headphones grow on you...
    I migrated from an ultraportable over-ear RadioShack set of headphones which had great sound at the time compared to previous cheap sets of headphones I owned.Unfortunately, the cord was short and the end plug would lose a good connection.I checked these out and noticed reasonable reviews and a stress on the bass.I thought, "Why would that be a problem?Great way to drown out NYC subway noise and so on..."

    Initially, I was rather unimpressed with sound quality (I thought there was really no difference from the older cheaper headphones) and it was quite uncomfortable as I was breaking them in.You see, I wear glasses and thus I'm very picky about comfort over my ears and it took 48+ hours for them to become comfortable.Now, I can wear them many hours a day without discomfort and it is getting better.

    Yes, the bass is strong, but not overpowering.I've actually used an equalizer to boost the bass in when streaming online radio (Musicmatch and the like)!I've noticed quickly (a) how tinny my previous headphones bass was in comparison and (b) how crappy the quality of some of my MP3s actually is and (c) how having stronger bass helps me to discriminate between crappy music (mindless and simplistic) rhythm/beat and good music which has a more nuanced and complex beat.

    So a quick lowdown: long cord is awesome!Bass is slightly emphasized (and crisp!) but mids/trebles are well pronounced.Comfort will grow on you.I definitely recommend it...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Buy!!
    I was really skeptical about buying these headphones, because all the guys were writting how they have too much bass, (and for guys to say too much bass, well, it must be outta control!!)
    Let me just say that these headphones, in fact, do "NOT" have too much bass, and rather they sound really nice. It is a very clean, crisp, and smooth sound, that is not overwhelming to the ears, but rather pleasant.
    I just received mine today and have only listened to them for 10 minutes, but that was enough for me to write a review.
    I highly reccomend these headphones!! And if these headphones seem to have too much bass for you, then there are probably many at Walmart that will take care of that problem for you!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars egh
    I bought these a couple months ago and i was pretty satisfied with the sound.They might not look as sweet as the pictures made them seem.The cables are extremely long, thin and annoying.It always end up being tangled or something like that.Mine actually ripped so the left right cup isnt working, but i am going throught the sennheiser service policy to get that replaced.I am now considering the sony mdr's priced around $100.If you are extremely serious about your music listening, maybe invest a little more then these sennheisers. ...

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The MDR-V300 closed supra-aural headphones provide top-end comfort and sound quality. Sony's closed type headphones allow only a limited amount of ambient noise into the ear canal, giving your attention fully to the music. The padded earcups fit comfortably, hour after hour. For those who like to use the headphones for single-sided monitoring, these MDR-V300s come with reversible earcups. The supra-aural design is engineered for excellent listening comfort. With this design, the earcups rest lightly on the ear, while the driver units are positioned along the ear canal for ideal sound transport. The wide, molded headband distributes the headphone's weight evenly. The headphones are foldable for easy storage and portability; when folded, the headphones will easily fit in a backpack or purse. The three meter cord (ten feet) is made of oxygen-free copper wiring for maximum conductivity and minimal noise.

    Sony has installed several key features to these headphones to enhance their sound quality. The thirty millimeter drive units delivers a deep bass sound and a wide dynamic range (the frequency range extends down to 18 Hz.) Both the stereo mini-plug and the UniMatch phone plug are gold-plated to make sure sound is transported fully and accurately. The gold-plated treatment also helps resist corrosion and supports the headphones' high conductivity and low noise. The neodymium magnets allow for superb power at a minimum size; these magnets provide more magnetic energy than other inferior magnets. Finally, the PET diaphragm works to deliver low distortion.

    Excellent fit, excellent compatibility, excellent portability and excellent sound: these headphones fit the bill for a sound professional.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good sound, uncomfortable after 2 hours
    The sound is extremely adequate for the non-professional.I find it excellent.The long cord is very nice.The headphones do not fold up in any useful way ("folding design" is really an exaggeration) and hence are not suited to being carried around.The major drawback is that these headphones are insanely uncomfortable to wear for more than 1-3 hours at a time.There is no way to adjust them to be more comfortable.It's a serious problem.

    2-0 out of 5 stars CPC: Cheap plastic crap
    I'm wearing my headphones now listening to music on my laptop, which is good.The bad news is that my right earpiece is attached with shoe-goo because it broke and there was not enough surface area to just glue the stem piece.That is to say, the whole earpiece is glued solid to its bracket so it doesn't move.The over-the-head thing is taped together with packaging tap because it, too, broke when I put the things on my rather large head.They sound fine and all, but I could make a more durable headphone set out of balsa wood.Do not consider these things portable unless your bodyguard is willing to carry them in a padded suitcase.

    Maybe I should just glue to the earpieces to my head.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the effort
    Sony has let me down yet again with these muddy sounding headphones. I've been doing studio recording for quite some time now and I needed a set of headphones to replace the jensens that I've been using for the past 3-4 years (background: I bought the jensen "PC" headphones new off the net for $12 us. and they have clear, bright sound, a little low on the bottom end but well worth the money. They're only now starting to wear out after regular use for extented periods of time). I've tried the sony phones with various setups: analog recorder, digital amp, cd walkman, mini stereo system, pc and the jensens always outshined them. I also got a couple of other opinions that thought the same thing: the sony phones are too bassy. Maybe rap and r&b fans are the crowd sony is targeting. Either way for $40-50, these headphones were lousy. Also, they weren't all that comfortable either...a little too snug for my liking.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great deal - great sounds
    use with
    ipod - mac g4 pb - powermac g5 - Creative GigaWorks S750 - recording setup

    It sounds brillant for so a cheap setup.Highly recommend it!

    The only issue i have it is not compact and sometimes the wire gets in the way.Besides that it rules...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Totally Disappointed
    These headphones have nothing but boomy bass. Highly imbalanced sound. I am sort of an audiophile, but when i bought a $35 headphones, i did not expect the moon and the stars. Sad to say i was let down. the basic headphones that came with my discman sound clearer than these.

    Tried them out with my Dell Laptop, Sony Discman and Harman Kardon amp. Bad performance in every case. Allowed 20 hours of break in, still only slight difference. They sound as if the music is lost somewhere within and all you hear are muffled thuds. This is not at all expected from a respected brand like Sony. I would give a total thumbs down to this product.

    If all you want to hear is boom and dont care about clarity or balance in sound then maybe this is for you, else stay away. I am returning mine.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Most impressive.
    Not going to write much, as most has been posted on the site, but definitely get these headphones if you're looking in the 50-100 dollar range. Actually these are better than many higher-end(higher-priced)headphones I've tried. Only complaint is that the headphones might be slightly large and heavy - extended use makes for hot ears. Nevertheless,the sound quality is superb. You won't be dissapointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding sound
    I just received these headphones yesterday and the sound is incredible, I am hearing instruments on my albums I never even heard before - The sound is crisp and clear. I am not going to write a long winded review of these since so many have already been written. But I will say do yourself a favor and pick these up, you won't regret it.

    They are a little heavy but they are also extremely durable. Some reviewer mentioned that they killed his neck, well, I don't know what to say about that except that unless you are a child these should not fatigue you like that.

    And also, whoever wrote that the lifetime warranty honored by Koss cost him 25 percent of the purchase price to ship back is insane. The cost to ship back the phones is $6.00 flat. And unless he paid 24.00 for these, his statement is incorrect.

    So sit back, relax and enjoy your music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
    I got these headphones because my dad got tired of hearing the bass from my stereo pounding through the house.These headphones take nothing away from that head-shakin sensation.I had originally gotten these for use with my stereo but I have found they work extremely well with my iPod Shuffle as well.I had heard that a portable device did not have enough power to drive these headphones but they certainly do.The sound quality is terrific in general.Even on my awesome stereo I have not been hearing every little detail in my music.It wasn't until i strapped these on my head that I have truly experienced my music.My only complaint is that they are a little on the heavy side so when you run around, they tend to slide forward on your head.Surprisingly, they do not make my ears boil when I wear them for long periods of time which is very nice because I tend to listen to entire cd's at a time.The Koss 4AAT's are well worth the $65-$75 you spend on them.I reccomend them to anyone who appreciates music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best sound at best price
    I have just recieved the Pro4aa and hooked them up,I tried them with several types of music,the sound is clear and sharp the bass responce is great, for the price and quality this is the one you want.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Shoddily Made -- greatly disappointed.
    I have a set of 30 year old Superex ProB VI headphones that are still going strong -- the Pro4 line has been around about as long, so I figured to try them out. Audio quality is FINE, but these headphones only lasted about 6 months before something broke. Looks like the sliding mechanism on the top ate the far channel. These have a "lifetime warrantee", so I sent them back, but that will end up costing about 25% of the purchase price. No excuse for such a poorly designed mechanism... sad to say, these apparently are made in the USA.

    Would not buy these again, sorry to say. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Solid sound, solid value, extra long cord.
    If you are an audiophile, go spend $150 on some overpriced headphones that sound 8% better (I recommend the Grado SR series).For the rest of us, these will do nicely.I have found them very comfortable for long music or gamingsessions.In fact, my housemate borrows my headphones whenever I am out of town because his Sony headphones (around the same price) are uncomfortable.You may have a funny shaped head, but most should find these pleasing to the ears in terms of sound and comfort.

    The sound quality is very good.Not audiophile quality, but solid and clear.Very strong base response.If you are used to cheap headphones with no base, you may need a few hours to adjust.

    "Mere mortals" should be very pleased.Those with golden ears, save your comments for the outrageously expensive stuff!

    Last note:These things are larger than they appear in the photos.They are great for use at home, but they will look goofy if you wear them on the bus with your portable MP3 player!

    Highly recommended for home use.And the long cord is great!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The pinnicle of auranautical excellence
    The absolute best headphones I've ever owned. The bass is incredible,like subwoofers in the ear. The midrange and high tones are perfectly reproduced. I first tried them with fable on the Xbox and you can hear things sneaking up behind you and it sounds like they are behind you.<br /> They fit really well and I can use them for hours on end with no discomfort. The main thing is they pound out bass like there's no tomarrow,gotta love German engineering.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Headphones
    Tired of the stock iPod earbuds, I decided to get these headphones and I'm satisfied with the purchase.At first I was a little disappointed in the sound, but after giving it a "burn-in" period they have improved greatly.The sound is very clear and rich, I'm hearing parts of songs that were inaudible before and enjoying more bass.The only downside is that because they are open headphones they allow exterior sounds to seep in, making it hard to hear some songs in a loud area unless you raise the volume a bit which could damage your hearing.They're most ideal at home or a quiet area, but good enough to use on the go.

    In terms of portability the cord is extremely long, but I keep it tied up and have not had any trouble.

    Overall, they're great headphones, but be aware that open headphones allow sound to seep in.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Bang for the buck.
    These headphones are very comfortable if you know how to adjust them correctly.People talking about muddy bass are right if you play it extremely loud.You dont want to do that.Music played in excess of 95 decibels can cause u to go deaf.The maximum of decibels on this is 114 so yeah these can make u deaf.So play music lower than 95 db if u wanna hear for the rest of your life.If you play music very low to moderate like me the bass is perfect.The belt clip that stores extra cord is very handy because i have a ipod that doesnt require much cord at all.

    2-0 out of 5 stars All bass all the time...
    Pro: I really prefer the fabric covered ear pads. Very comfortable.

    Con: The sound of these headphones is very disappointing.

    The package says "Enhanced Bass" and the bass is definitely enhanced; to the point of being ridiculous. These provide indistinct, throbbing, muddy bass that makes you ears hurt after a short time. You can correct some of this with drastic EQ settings by why should you have to do that?

    Other users say that a 12+ hour break-in period helps, but if anything, that made things worse.

    I think this is an attempt by Sennheiser to satisfy the same people who thinkgood sound means rattling windows....quantity instead of quality.

    If you think over-driven car stereos that make the ground vibrate are cool, these are for you. But if you prefer balanced sound with rich bass, look elsewhere. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T waste your $$$$
    I bought these but promptly returned them. They are underpowered, leaving lots of static and squeaks in the radio signal, even from 6 feet away. Also, the signal often drops out for no apparent reason and it may come back in "locked" on to your neighbor's headphone signal, a block away.
    Despite the high list price and fancy branding, these things are total junk. I suggest cheaper infared models if you want to avoid noise. If you need "through the walls" wireless, a cheap (...)set should perform better, since they usually do not include the "auto signal lock" feature that leads to losing the channel you're listening to. I suggest staying away from Acoustic Research, which is just an expensive brand for the cheap electronics manufacturer, Recoton. That said, Recoton at a low $20 price should be fine.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage... what a waste
    A total waste of time and money. I think I wasted more time however. I still haven't got them to work and it has been several hours of trying non-stop. I am computer savvy, so I know what to do, but still, NOTHING - no sound, I am not even lucky enough to get this "infamous" hissing sound. Screw the product and the company that made it. Don't buy it no matter how cheap it is (I was deceived by price). WATCH OUT FOR THIS TRASH!

    1-0 out of 5 stars No signal
    Purchasing these headphone is a complete waste of money.Since I've owned them I have only once been able to get a clear signal (but it only lasted a few minutes).I have tried moving the base, changing the channel, but no nothing works.They don't even get a decent signal when 12 inches from the base!Save your money! Don't buy this junk!

    1-0 out of 5 stars They break
    I received as a gift and was very excited.I utilized the optical port and everything seemed to be going well.Then it would search for a new channel every min or so.Then they physically broke.The ear piece is held on by a small half circle of plastic.I sent them back and got a new pair.
    The switching problem lessened but still occasionally changes channels when I have a great signal.Then they physically broke again...and I was being ultra careful knowing they were fragile.I really didn't see the point of getting a new pair so I bent some metals strips and super glued them to connect the ear pieces to the frames.

    They don't break now but it was quite the hassle and still there often is a reception problem and some days nothing will make them work correctly.Look elsewhere.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Wait for some more time.....
    Guys,

    Though You can't avoid Hssss sound I think Sound quality is ok. One thing I invented is turning the face of transmitter towards ur left or right reduces a noise little, what a great invention, isn't it?, I think should get a patent on it before anyone does :-)). When you are moving sounds dies. Haven't seen any use or surround sound button yet. Though in headset it says batteris of 1.4 required they supplied me [Amazon -> TigerDirect ] 1.2 volt rechargable batteris whick looked like aged enough to Die.

    Headset is bit heavy, neck and ear muscles start paining initially. better keep Aspirin ready for few days till you get used to it. I suggest to wait till this techonolgy improves or give a try with headset which is not so bad at all. Quality of materials used won't look good.

    Good Luck,
    jay

    My company sold over 500 PC130 headsets last year. I've tried every headset on the market. The PC130 is solidly built, we've had zero returns from customers for broken headsets. The microphones fail eventually, but all microphones eventually fail and these last longer than most. The headphones eventually rattle a little but last much longer than Koss headsets. The headphone sound quality is very good, not as good as more expensive headsets but very good for the price. The microphone sound quality is adequate. Compared to a 10mm microphone, this 6mm microphone doesn't noise-cancel well, and it has no low-end (bass). But no one makes headsets with 10mm microphones any more, consumers seem to care only about headphone sound quality, not microphone sound quality. Another plus with this headset is that the microphone can be wiped clean with alcohol wipes, if several people are using the headset.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fine, but not better than much cheaper options
    I got this as a second headset to use at school; I already had a competing model (made by Altec Lansing) on my home computer.I read about the great performance of this one, particularly the mic, and since my office at school is a bit noisy, I thought paying about double for an upgraded mic capability would be worth it.

    Well, the headset works fine.But it's not better than my home unit, which cost less than half as much.I've swapped them between school and work to make sure it's not just the extra noise at school causing the performance difference, but there simply isn't one.I certainly don't notice any difference between the two models -- both provide decent stereo sound, have a mute button and a volume button, etc.If anything, the other model, with a flexible behind-the-head design, is more comfortable.But the person I'm talking to over VOIP -- my fiancee on the other side of the world -- reports absolutely no difference either.

    So the product is fine.But for the money, it's not worth it.I'm not sure what "Noise Cancelling" means, but it doesn't do a better job at what I think it means than generic models that are less than half the price.I'd recommend saving your money and getting a cheaper model, or shelling out more and buying something really nice.This product is just run-of-the-mill.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous.

    I bought the PC 135 Sennheiser headset about four months ago. Its a PC 130 with a usb based sound card which i'm not using at the moment. Overall not worth paying 40 dollars more for the USB sound card except that its a neat toy.

    But the headset part is the PC 130 which is a very good headset indeed. The sound of it is superior to my logitech z 5300's. It manages impressive directional sound. I can hear what direction armies are marching in warcraft before I can see them at night for example.

    The mic is durable and quite good. I talk to my girl friend routinely over the net using it. Fabulous headset for sure.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible
    I purchased this headset, and no less than two weeks later, it died on me. No sound came out, no sound went in through the microphone.

    Will never go with Sennheiser ever again. Bought the logitech premium 300 headset instead and love it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great headset for internet phoning
    I've bought other headsets and they were simply too heavy. This one is an excellent balance between light weight and substantive performance. Would have preferred leather ear muffs to the synthetic foam which tends to fall apart after long use. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars poor sound balance
    I was very disappointed in these, Their sound was relatively murky, very much biased toward mid and bass, to a degree that couldn't be corrected with an equalizer. Though I could make out treble sounds okay and high-frequency sounds did come through, the audio did not feel crisp or high-definition. Similar to other in-the-ear headphones I've tried recently (e.g., Nexxtech backband 331-3000).

    That said, they were comfortable enough. If you mainly want big bass without lots of definition, these might be okay for you.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Possibly defective product
    When I took these headphones out of the package i was expecting everything to go wrong. I've always have bad luck with sony earbuds. So i plugged them in to my iPod and what do ya know. They scratch pop and cut out in certain sides when the plug is nudged a slight bit. Yes it is plugged all the way in and when i plug my sennheiser hd457's in they work just fine. Im going to return these and see if i cant have better luck with another brand. But when I could hear them the audio was phenomenal. Highly reccomended if you dont get a bad pair.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best in this price range
    I am not a music pro, but can tell an excellent headphone from a good one.This one is so good that I can hardly tell the difference from my $299 Bose QuietComfort® 2 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphone.If you do not like this one, you are likely have to spend $300 for a bose.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Gentlemen, Start Your Equalizers...
    While all bud style headphones have different sound/frequency profiles at different volume levels, these ED21's seem to be a bit more variable than my other sets.Not that it's that much of a big deal, and maybe some wouldn't notice, but I listen to my music in two distinctly different situations.I listen at night at a low volume level, and also at a much higher volume level when at work.

    What you may not be able to see from the picture, is that there is a little rubber shape that goes into your ear canal.This is the main reason I bought them, as I was looking to buy something the equivalent of foamies (or whatever you call the foams you put on earbuds) that had a little ear canal funnel built in.There is a company that makes them, but I chose not to get them since they're overpriced and rather large.

    Both buds have rather sharp tops, so I had to put foamies on these, thus ruining the cool look a little, and cutting out a little of the high range.But even before that, I had a little trouble with the right earbud's rubber funnel thing getting a little folded over.Maybe it's improper insertion technique, but I've since figured out how to have it pop back out while still in my ear (pull back).

    Once in, they don't have the irritating ability to move around.Nothing irked me more with my other earbuds than having ear position dictate how much bass and volume I was getting.I routinely have my jacket pull at the cord a little, and these keep the sound constant by not having the bud move.

    You can hear when the music is off.I stayed away from the EX51 and 71, and also Koss's Plug, due to a concern about the ability to hear people/cars/etc when needed.

    Would I recommend them?Yes.Buy them again? Definately, at least until someone makes the same exact design better.But minus one star because I had to put foamies on them due to the sharp tops.Boo, Sony, you know know better.That said, Thanks, Sony, for the great sounding buds.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sooo comfortable!
    I am in love with these headphones. They are the only ear-buds that fit in my ear, and they are exquisitely comfortable. The sound is also better than that of any headphones I've had before. I'm sure super pricey ear buds have better sound, but for the price these couldn't be a better deal. They are the only headphones I will use with my Creative Nomad Zen Xtra. The only thing I'm worried about is making sure they don't get ear wax on them. I'll be keeping my ears immaculate for these headphones. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    The lightweight Sennheiser PC-120 headset is an inexpensive solution for people who want to keep the lines of PC communication open even while traveling with a laptop. The headset features a single-sided earpiece that fits comfortably within the lobe, along with a self-adjustable, omni-directional microphone that enables clear, easy-to-understand interactions. Because of its minimal size, the headset makes an ideal choice for businessmen and women who frequently participate in telephone conferences and private Internet calls while on the road. In addition, it works well as a dictation device and transcription aide, and is also a fun tool for communicating with friends while playing online video games. Selective users will welcome the headset's flexibility, as it fits on either ear depending on personal taste. Other features include an in-line volume control, a 9.8-foot cord that drapes conveniently away from the chin and neck, and a microphone mute switch. And though the PC-120 is designed for computer use (it comes with a pair of 3.5 mm connector plugs), it's also compatible with some mobile phones. As with all Sennheiser communications products, the headset carries a two-year warranty.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Flexible and easy to use
    For communication purpose, this one is quite good piece of headset.I use it for my cellular phone and PC communication, and I am extremely happy with this product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Versatile, Comfortable, High quality!!
    I recently discovered this headset and I bought it immediately. I was in search of something I could use for both my cell phone and my laptop. If you're looking for the same thing you know how frustrating it is to find something that has both a 2.5mm headset jack and 1/8in microphone/headphone jacks for your computer.

    This headset has both!!

    It comes in two segments. The headset is attached to a 4 foot wire that ends with a 2.5mm plug. I put the headset on my ear, plug it into my cell phone, and put my phone in my pocket. It's the perfect length ~ no extra wire.

    This 2.5mm jack can be plugged into the second segment of cord for use on a computer. This cord has a mute switch for the microphone and a volume knob to adjust how loud the earbud is. It's 6 feet and plugs into the headphone and microphone inputs in your laptop or computer.

    This second segment is what makes this headset so VALUABLE. I used to use two different headsets, one for my computer and one for my cell phone. It was IMPOSSIBLE to find an adapter that would allow me to use one headset for both. This headset solves my problem.

    I gave this headset 5 stars because it's a fantastic product. It's made by Sennheiser; designed and engineered in Denamark. These guys have certainly mastered the headset. You'll notice the quality of the headset the instant you pull it out of the packaging. The moving parts are well-constructed and it feels very difficult to break. Plus it's one of the best-looking headsets on the market!

    Using the PC 120 has made a huge difference in the quality of my conversations. I can't say enough good things about it! Get one for yourself, I bet you'll love it :)
