SENNHEISER PMX40 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Neckband Headphone

 

I use these when I'm walking around campus with my zune or in the lab. Its easier than wearing a bulky pair of headphones all the time. In short get these if you need a pair of mobile headphones but if you are going to be in one place with them than...

Sound quality is decent, sounds are clear and bass is solid for headphones of this size

If you have glasses you will probably only want to wear these for about an hour or 2 at a time, but thats what you are going to get from any behind the neck headphones

Shaped for someone else's head

 

These headphones sound good, but I'd rather have lesser-quality sound in headphones that fit well. I'm disappointed in Sennheiser. Why would they make headphones that are uncomfortable?

Sounds good... Price ; Too bad I can't stand to wear them that long

These headphones are uncomfortable. I don't have a weird-shaped head... and these headphones put too much pressure right behind my ears. There's too much pressure right behind my ears... and right behind that, there's a big gap between the headphones...

These things sound like junk. Please buy these headphones as a last resort unless you love to waste your money on trash. I think ill just throw these in the trash

Great headphones once you get used to their flaws

 

Sure that's a big "Cons" paragraph, but it's really just saying the specifics. These headphones are the best you can buy if you don't want to go extremely expensive. I consider myself a bit of an audiophile (I almost died when I was listening to some...

These headphones are real excellent. In my opinion, they're the best headphones available under $70. They aren't perfect and have some flaws. but they're otherwise excellent! GREAT bass, GREAT feel, they feel like they'll last

The cable is not extremely strong and keeps ripping. I've soldered new ones on 3 times already. The plug is long and straight, so it sticks out pretty far. The cable is a bit too long so it can easily get hooked onto something and rip off

Okay-ish

 

Like others have said they can get uncomfortable after a while. I guess they're OK for commuting and utility/backup use but "at home" you want circumaurals.

Small and solid construction - they don't look like they will break any time soon

Sound quality is not up to what I expected from this brand; I'd say it's below average compared to others in its price range

SENNHEISER PMX40 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Neckband Headphone

 

I shouldn't be able to rip apart the metal wires inside the cord with my bare hands without injury. These are bad headphones, lasted only a month and a half.

Good sound

The wires inside the cord ripped apart, and caused them to no longer function. Also causing them to fly across my room at a high velocity into my wall causing them to explode since they are made of cheap materials

Consumer review by:

Quality Headphones

 

The quality of these headphones are remarkable. It also includes a long cable for when using with a PC. The only complaint is two little handles for your ears. They get quite uncomfortable after a while but they can be easily pulled out and put again...

SENNHEISER PMX40 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Neckband Headphone

 

After reading the reviews on the earbuds of the same brand, I was expecting a lot from these. I got everything I expected. Good sound quality, and actually makes my PDA's lack of bass tolerable, more bass and clearer treblethan any of my other...
