Fell Apart

 

Sound quality

Outer wire housing wore out and wire broke after 4 months. Non operable now

Consumer review by:

very high quality

 

Best bang for the buck I have ever got in a set of in ear head phones as I got on sale for 15 bucks. The key is the right size for your ear and a tight fit and that will get you very good bass and clarity. even at full price I would say a good buy. I...

Good and cheap

 

Definitely worth it on special (I think I paid a bit over $16?) At full price I'd look at the PL11s

Got them cheap on sale, sound great fitted with some comply foam tips. I'm sure the ones that come with the earbuds are fine too ; Sound a bit better than my SoundMagic PL11s (I believe they have the same driver?) and much better than my Klipsch S3s

Asymmetrical cords (left side shorter than right), but thats no biggie

Great headphones

 

It's one of those wrap behind asymmetrical set of headphones. The left cord is shorter than the right. I don't mind it at all but others might. The plug is an L shape which again I don't mind but others might.

Great sound for $17 headphones. The bass and trable are good and the mids don't get drowned out too badly. Well worth the purchase if it goes on sale again. I have no clue how some people are saying these have no bass or that their $15 Sonys are better

For $17 I can't really say there are any cons

Too short

 

Sennheiser does have good products. I have the CX200 ear buds and they are great

The sennheiser CX301 that I just got are no good. One wire to the ear is much longer and the other one. The sound is not as good as my SX200 by a long shot. I sent them back for a refund

Excellent Earphones for the price

 

At full price, I think this would be a good value, on sale it is a superb value. This is my first set of in-ear headphones and I am amazed how much more comfortable they are versus OE headphones, and how good the sound is relative to the size. I would...

Fit perfectly in (my) Ears with the default attachements ; Very good Frequency response for Earphones of this size ; Comfortable (relative to OE headphones) ; Small and lightweight

No case to carry around. So you need to put with the equipment (MP3 player etc) and/or zip lock to make sure it does not get ruined when transporting ; As many people noted, when you move the wires you hear a rustling sound, however I think this is the...

Pretty Good

 

The sound is fairly good. As another review stated a little lacking in the bass. I bought mine on sale for a fraction of a price, so my review is based on the price. The price was comparable to Skull candies inkd. I would say these were better but if i...

Full retail is not worth the quality, which i regret to say as a huge sen fan. But if on sale i would say is worth it

Consumer review by:

Better than I expected

 

Fit snuggly into ear canal ; Performs well in high and low ranges ; I have never felt compeled to write a review before, but I had to put my two cents out there

JUNK

 

These are not a little bad they are AWEFUL. Iphone cheapos are 100 times better.

Nothing

Absolute NO BASS. I have the 200s (Bought from here) and they where great. I have no idea what happened here. These are junk, not worth returning and not worth using. I guess I could have just sent my money and had New Egg through them away remotely...

Consumer review by:

Nice

 

If they are on sale take a chance..Don't think you will regret it.

Clean, cear sound. No issue with the Bass. Great Price on sale. Tried the ME brand always muddy sound. Second pair of Sennheisers I was impressed as soon as I put these on
