Sennheiser MX 560 Earphones


Bin those iPod earbuds and get something decent!

And despite the plastic construction, these headphones do feel well-constructed and well-made. There's nothing here that makes me think it's a candidate for breakage. The 3.5mm stereo jack is, thoughtfully, at right-angles, so when your MP3 player is...

Sennheiser - MX 560


Sennheiser has built a deserved reputation for designing high-performing ‘phones at reasonable prices, and if you're not willing to spend hundreds of pounds on high-end models from companies like Shure, they should be your first port ...

If you're in the market for a decent pair of headphones to replace the default set supplied with your audio player and are for some reason averse to ‘bud designs, there are few better solutions around at this price point.

SENNHEISER HD428 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone


Sennheiser Make these with a thicker cord and they would be perfect

really nice, good build quality classic sennheiser plastic, REALLY comfortable i think i have average to slightly large ears and these fit right over them and the padding is amazing. need a little burn in when new but good sound quality

thin cord, haven't had any problems yet but if anything goes wrong i would guess it would be the cord

Worth the money


I bought these from another sight for 54$ so i got a slightly better deal. These pair of cans are fantastic for the price i payed. The padding on the plastic band is slightly uncomfortable for me, but it should eventually break in and that should be...

Very nice build quality for being all plastic. The swivel on the cups has a very large range which can be great for some people. Good size not ridiculously big just slightly larger than what i truly wanted. These sound fantastic. The highs are very...

The earcups are just about the right size but the padding is not as soft as i would like. Hopefully they become worn in with time. Other reviewers say their cords are short, however i found mine to be very long. I would say it's about 8 to 10 feet...

eggcellent f/ $


- bought them at local electronics store BB.. NewEgg is slightly cheaper and I <3 them, just was in a pinch :) - decent quality for the price can't expect much better; just certain parts of the headphones are sure to break without special care given...

Sound great; incredible difference in comparison to stock stuff & anything around the 20-30 $ range. It's really worth a few extra bucks to hear audio closer to the way it was heard when it was mixed ; Sound reduction is impressive for having no active...

biggest con is cord length. I've found shure always appropriately lengths their cords, and others sometimes come with an extension; this cord/cable is NOT long enough for typical usage. Only long enough to be comfortable for maybe mp3 in a car, pocket,...

Rather Disappointed


Tested with both my mp3 players and my Realtek HD sound output on my PC with a variation of equalizer settings. I was rather disappointed with the sound quality in comparison to other earphones I've owned in the past. I expect more from a company like...

Decent sound quality for the average user, but could be better for the original sale price of $34.99

Not built very ergonomically to fit the ear, reducing sound quality/noise cancellation and causing them to fall out somewhat easily.
