I have read alot of mixed reviews about these headphones, I still thought I would give them a try especially at this price.. they arrived today and im listening to them as i type this..
my first impressions are quite good, the overall sound it really good, maybe slighly on the bright side especially when listening to 128kbps mp3's they certainly dont flatter low bit rate mp3's playing thru the laptop but even so the sound it still respectable.. thru a marantz amp and marantz CD player they sound great, full bodied with just enough thump and attack for rock music, deep bass is lacking but still better than I thought it would be.. the sensitivity isnt great when playing thru my HIFi, my old sony headphones could be played at around -20bd on my marantz amp but these sennheisers need to be cranked up to about -2bd which is pretty high.. because of the mixed reviews i was dreading trying these but overall im quite surprised.
Nice sound (maybe slightly bright of some)
good attack and drive with rock music
Comfy and snug fit
Long cable (may be a pain for some people tho)
lacks deep bass
double entry cable
cheap feeling cable
low sensitivity on some amps
