WOW!!! Fast Shipping


Great for the price, the shipping was extremely fast.

The shipping only took one day! I've played these headphones with my iPhone and no complaints so far. I've played techno, rap, and rock. All of these music types are extremely crisp and the bass is great, definitely better compared to the original ipod...

Just the fact that the headphone wires are setup to go behind your ears but i got used to it

Average item...would not buy again.

fairly good Highs

Not so good bass

Good stuff


I eq on a Cowon iAudio U3 with extra bass on the eq, 10 for Mach Bass, and no MP Enhance, and they sound great. Unlike what you see in the pic, the silver color is wrong; it is more like chrome tinted blue.

Comfortable. Not likely to fall off when tugged, though that can be a bad thing. Integrated volume control

I agree, the cord is a bit long. As usual, bass is a bit weak. You can use the other ear pieces and make a tighter seal, but you do sacrifice a bit of comfort. Takes more volume to drive vs. my Sennheiser CX300, either due to the nature of the seal or...

Ridiculously nice


If mine breaks I will definitely buy another pair because it is pretty cheap and lasts long and comes with the sennheiser 2 year warranty

These headphones offer really good quality especially when I am riding on the MTA in NY. The bass is ridiculous. It helps block out the noise from other people talking. I dropped the headphone itself about 5 times and it still works as good as new

Does not block out all the train sounds and vibrations. Long wire can get a little annoying but the clip that it comes with helps out

Awesome, but ears fall off.


My ears aren't as big as those rubber attachments they give you, so I didn't really use em. I found that with or without them, the mesh falls off easily.

The design of the hook on the ear is excellent, the volume adjuster is pretty cool, but personally I just stopped using it and kept it at max. I actually wish they didn't use those because it can cause shorts in the wire, so after a while you have to...

Starting a few months after getting them and ending after about 5 months of use the entire ear pieces fell apart. They fall off in stages though. First goes the mesh/rubber extensions, easy to lose and they fall off fast. Then goes the metal screens,...

SENNHEISER OMX50 Street 3.5mm Connector Earbud Headphone


For the money it is a good set of ear buds, probably the best I've ever had. Just be careful of the cable, and be prepared for it to coil up on you.

So long as you attach the proper bits of rubber that help the unit to fit snuggly in your ear and prevent sound seepage, they sound really good. The ear grips are pliable and can be shaped to comfort, and are very good at keeping the buds snugly in...

The left ear bud cord is indeed shorter than the other, and can get very annoying. For this reason, these buds are best-suited to people who keep/wear their music devices on their left side. This problem can also be exacerbated with the cable's...

Great Value


Two weeks before Xmas I ordered these on Monday and Newegg and UPS has them there from Memphis (to St. Louis) on Tuesday. Yea Newegg.

The asymetrical cord balances the weight of the buds on my ears. I don't know why people complain about this. I run the coard down my back for my Ipod. The cord is long but that's what twist-ties are for. This was a big improvement over the bad buds...

None. A great value for two-two clams

Consumer review by:

decent, but could be better


While I might would go with another choice if I had to do it again, these earbuds are pretty good for the price.

The sound quality for the price is pretty good ; The around ear style is very helpful for when I workout

The assymetrical cord is extremely annoying ; The cord length is a bit too long

Consumer review by:

good quality


good sound quality. the flexible ear holder is handy and adapts to your ear

the asymmetric cable of course. Also the actual bud that goes in the ear is pretty big. I thought I had big ears (the ipod ones fell off), but this is really big, so medium ear consumers be advised

Consumer review by:

Great Value


Great quality for the price. Sound is clear and they are very adjustable (once I figured out that they are flexible). The bass sounds nice with little to no distortion. It does seem that there is some type of bass reduction going on as they not quite...
