"Under rated"3.5 starson by Ima_Wag
Pros: True to source
Cons: 3 meter Cord is a missed blessing.
Summary: Bass? True to source - not enhanced (no added boom).
High range? A little bit lacking but not enough to make an issue.
Mid range? True to source and really quite good.
Will they match high end expensive Headphones? No, however, as rated by the experts, these truly are the "best of class".
Best suited to a PC or laptop with a sound card and/or amplification rather than Ipod or MP3 Player.
Read over 500 reviews of this Sennheiser model and compared to similar and pricer competition such as Kross and various other name brand products.
Drove sales staff at both Dick Smiths & Office Works crazy with questions and demonstrations.
Paid twice going rate on Amazon despite AU$1 currently valued at US$1.06 - what's the story? This is a bit disappointing - the freight costs should not equate to this price differential.
Despite this - am happy with this purchase. Consider good value, especially in price range.
A tip: To keep in good condition and provide maximum comfort, apply Leather Conditioner to the
leatherette Headphone pads and headpiece on a regular basis to stop cracking and to mold to
your best fit.
