Great sound, low quality hardware

 

I have been using Sennheiser headsets for more than 3 decades and their products have always been well manufactured high quality products. The PC 151 is an exception. While the sound quality is good and the headset is comfortable, the build quality is...

The sound is good and the headset is comfortable.

The front and back pieces of the volume control widgets are not glued or "welded" together. They separate easily into two pieces. One can snap them back together, but unless one is very careful, the very thin wires will be cut. The wires themselves and...

Quality?

 

what else can I say two pairs one for me and one for my daughter and they both broke and she is meticulously care with EVERYTHING she owns. In other words don't touch her stuff...lol. I just felt bad for buying them for her.

I refer to my pro tag she was very good at first but really sucked when she left {and before too ;-] }

I have been a Sennheiser fanatic for 30 years but they like most company's these days take shot cuts now a days. We've had 2 pairs of these and the same thing happened to both. one or two little tugs on that skinny @*& wiring and that's it. I have 2...

Good value headset

 

This is my first set of Sennheiser headsets. I've heard the term "infamous Sennheiser clamp" and it's real: during the first month or so of use the headband was like a tightly wound spring - I could definitely feel it squeezing my head. Not painful,...

I am not an audiophile so I can't comment on how precise the sound is; however, in my four years of gaming with these I have never had a problem with the sound quality. At normal volume both game sounds and VOIP participants were crisp and clearly...

The inline volume control. I've ran over the regular part of the cord due to its length many times without issue, but the connections at the volume control (which always sits well above the floor) are flaky ; After about three years of regular use...

SENNHEISER PC151

 

These are glorious. By far the best headset I've ever owned. Five years and going strong. Whenever these die, I'm probably going to get them again ; Very comfortable even over 12-18 hour sessions. They're large enough to provide immersive sound but...

The ear pads are not replaceable, and being five years old they're a bit icky at this point. I've tried washing them delicately with soap and water but it's just not enough. I've taken to covering them with socks, so this is no longer an issue ;...

Great... While it lasted

 

Worked great while it lasted

Minor wear and tear on these headphones and the microphone gave out after a little over 5 months. I even have the cord wrapped up so it wouldn't be stepped on. Sennheiser is a decent company but these headphones are very cheaply made. I wouldn't...
