Expert review by:

Sennheiser MX55 VC Street

 

Even after finding a good fit, many people have trouble with earbuds inexorably sliding out of their ear canal. Sennheiser thinks it has the solution—it's called Twist-to-Fit— but we found this invention to be far worse than the problem.

In-line volume control--great idea

Twist-to-Fit: horrible idea

If you can endure the pain, the MX 55’s sound pretty damned good. They deliver solid bass response without losing touch with mids and highs. That’s quite an accomplishment considering their low price tag. And we welcome the in-line volume control on...

We have to admit to having a real soft spot for Sennheiser headphones. We particularly like its trademark 'twist to fit' system, which hooks asmaller rubber pad into your outer ear.

Stylish, Twist To Fit system works well

Not proffessional quality

Stylish headphones are a good fit

Nice mids, Detailed sound, New design to hold earbuds in place

Lacking bass, Quite a bright sound

If you are a fan of earbuds and are on the move a lot, the MX55 might be right up your alley.

SENNHEISER MX55v Street 3.5mm Connector Earbud Headphone

 

If you buy them spend quite a lot of time trying the fittings. There is also lots of room for error in getting them in right, but if works out, they do sound great.

OK, the sound is amazing if.....you get the right size fitting

If your ear doesn't fit the fittings that come with the product then it will hurt your ears fairly quickly

Terrible Build Quality

 

For a pair of relatively inexpensive earbuds, I really enjoyed the clear tones and great bass on these earbuds. The unique fit was odd at first, but it proved its worth over thousands of hours of running. That being said, these are terrible earphones!...

Good sound quality, fairly secure fit

Terrible build quality, terrible design

Love and hate em.

 

I will not buy these again because of the cord and pieces.

Sound good ; Comfortable once you find the right pieces for the ear lock and the bud covers

Cords tangle so bad I have learned to just laugh it off. If you throw these in your pocket even for a minute, they will be a tangled mess. I beleive they tangle more than any other buds I've owned because they have the lock part that sticks out and the...

Reasonable Choice

 

I've used these daily to commute for over a year and they absolutely proved serviceable. The rubber hoods, or gaskets that surround the buds and seal them to your ear frequently fell off and it was usually a miracle to find them again. They do not...

The twist-to-fit design means they will stay in your ear, and they deliver a decent sound quality

Can become uncomfortable after several hours' usage. I found myself spending lots of time untangling the cord

Falls Apart & Uncomfortable

 

Seriously don't buy this product.

Sounds okay

These headphones are falling apart. The shiny plastic on both sides have detached, and the rubber things have completely come off of one side. The earbuds themselves are very large and the "twist to fit" system is extremely uncomfortable for my ears. I...
