Sennheiser MX 581 earphones

 

The Sennheiser MX 581 earphones are sleekly designed and deliver good quality mid-range audio. However, pushing these earphones too far results in tre...

Good sound quality at moderate volume levels, comfortable design that can be altered to suit small or large ears

Distortion of bass and harsh treble at high volume levels

love my Sennheisers

 

I use my earphones daily for at least 4hrs. These earphones have excellent sound for classical and jazz type music, as you can hear the instrumentation very clearly. Vocal is nice and clear also. However, if you must have bass pounding sound, you...
