Sennheiser MXL 51 Street Earphones


Sennheiser's MXL 51 ‘Street' earphones sound great and the lanyard works like a dream: I just can't believe no one has ever thought of it before!

They are what they are - ear buds


They are ear buds - so don't expect strong bass. I would have given them 3.5 eggs if I could.

Nice neck lanyard design. They fit well in my ears. Mids and highs are nice and clear. Bass is more pronounced than other ear buds I have tried. Comes with travel case (more like a wrap than case)

Bass is not what I hoped for and is lacking. Travel "wrap" is poorly designed

Ouch >.


Good for people that want good quality sound and willing to line their ears with super glue.

Sound good. Cord design is nice

Comfort IS the reason I bought these and I was sadly disappointed. I feel like I'm trying to shove Legos in my ears. O_o I've always thought my ears were larger than average but these ear buds show me I'm sadly mistaken. The only reason I'm keeping...

Quite nice!


I haven't been impressed with the audio quality of the earbuds that I've used until I purchased these. If you are a fan of earbud headphones or run into a situation where a larger headset would be inconvenient and require something less bulky, I highly...

Very nice sound for the price. Bass output is decent as far as earbud headphones are concerned, the treble comes in clear and strong. They are comfortable to wear, stay snugly in the ears, and the break-away lanyard design is outstanding. The ability...

It isn't immediately obvious which channel each bud corresponds to. There is an L and R engraved in the plastic and a couple of tactile clues, so this is far from a major issue

awkward at first but now i love them =]


I'll never pay for another brand of headphones, sennheiser is the best!

i've always had good luck when buying sennheiser gear and i'll say that i'm on a roll. The bass is the best i've heard from any earbuds even close to this price-range (and in no way shape or form is that a bad thing) Sound in general is excellent, i...

Cords a little too long, but my last one was too short, never the less i don't really mind at all

Quite good


I was really surpised at how good Yes sounds on these earphones.

Although they may not be studio quality, they really do sound good, and the lanyard concept is brilliant

No carry case

Bland sounding headphones


I bought these earphones from a high-street retailer believing that 'they must be good because they are Sennheiser'. How wrong I was...
