Best Earbuds.

 

These are pretty much perfect. Amazing sound quality, lightweight so they don't hurt your ears, loud and crisp. Put them into your ears and they cancel out the world. Use them all the time on planes just as earplugs. Really incredible earbuds!

Everything

Nothing

tin-ny (not tiny, tinny)

 

Good thing I bought a squatetrade warranty-they may "break" soon

Cheap

Hurts my eardrums. Tin sounding

Okay on sale, otherwise No

 

These headphones are lightweight and comfortable. You get "good enough" sound, perfect for subway rides or bus trips, etc. Hopefully the plug will stay put for you and you won't have the same trouble I do...making them a bit of a PITA when I'm walking....

At the sale price - newegg rocks! - these are a good deal. On my Samsung Focus they sound pretty much like the headphones that came with the phone, not much better, maybe a bit. The mids suffer the usual muddiness / hollowness and the bass is...

One big negative is the plug. If I'm moving at all the plug slips out of my phone. Constantly. Walking? Forget about walking while listening to music unless you don't mind holding your phone (or mp3 player, whatever). Maybe it's just my phone but I...

Not bad...Not for bass lover

 

The lack of bass issue might be caused by the device that pushing it. (current is a phone). Will try on some other device like mp3 player to further test on the bass capability.

First of all Im no sound guru, I am reviewing it as a average music lover. Very clear sound quality almost as good as my previous ear-phone. (AKG K324P) I'm able to hear much more than some high bass headphone, yet it perform fairly well on low bass...

It never hurt to have more bass...design is kind of flimsy. Of cause there are better earphone out there but also with a bigger price tag

Consumer review by:

funny yet impressing

 

Good bass. Great quality. After wearing these for a few months and loving the sound I lost them and realized I accidently washed them with a load of laundry. I feared the worst. I stuck them in and worked like a charm after all the abuse. VERY PLEASED

didnt have "waterproof" tag with it lol

Satisfied

 

Personal Rating (compared to other similar headphones, NOT professional) Hardware: 8/10 Volume: 7/10 Clarity: 7/10 Price: 5/10 Total: 27/40 Hope it helped.

THE CORD IS SYMMETRICAL ; (I had a very difficult time finding that information, I ended up calling Sennheiser) ; I use these for both recreational listening and my backup pair of in ear monitors. I have a pair of Sennheiser IE80 professional...

Speakers crack at higher volumes, seem like they would be easy to blow ; Bass is a little lacking at times, but treble isn't overbearing... so its not so bad ; Retail price is a little high, try to get it on a promo

Consumer review by:

Very Good for the special price

 

Wish Sennheiser has similar ear-canal with mics and support iPhone under $35.00

Sennheiser Sound Signature. Decent Bass. Low Impedence --> good on iPhone

Not worth of MSRP ; Lack iPhone control & mic

Consumer review by:

Comfortable, Sound Just Okay

 

Not sure why everyone is so hot on the sound quality. Certainly better than buds out there. No way these are worth list price, but give them a serious look if on special.

Comfort; three different ear bud sizes for proper fit ; Sound just "okay;" not the H_ly Grail for ear buds ; 3.5mm jack is 90 degree molded connection ; Weekend special was priced at 65% off regular price ; Arrived in 3 business days, as promised

Some line noise, but seems to be limited to proximity to my wireless mouse/keyboard. Just move devices to stop the interference. No biggie

Consumer review by:

So great I bought 3-sets!

 

Very comfortable, the only earbud that doesn't hurt. I needed to change the left ear to smaller rubber for Perfect. I compared (and own) to their CX-200. It is like night and day. Look at the SenNheiser web site. They have a new line, that why you...

None

Consumer review by:

Sennheiser at its best

 

Some people may complain about feedback from tapping the wires but that's to be expected from these kinds of headphones, I think. These are the second Sennheiser headphones that I bought and I am definitely gonna stay with them if they keep up this...

Excellent sound and bass ; Nice isolation of outside sounds ; headphones case for storage

None really
