Pros Clear and warm high quality sound
Cons Lack of consistent bass
Summary Several reviews recommend the px100 above the px200. I tried both and the first one has more bass level but worse high and midtones. The px200 sounds awesome if your player is quite good. I got an old minidisc and I'm sure they would sound even better with an i-pod, iriver or rio.
Don't hesitate to buy them. You won't regret at all.
"Excellent and cheap"on by alext
Pros Comfort, bass, privacy
Cons Slightly lacking in detail
Summary I already owned some Shure E4 in ear phones. They have fabulous sound but I decided I had to get rid of them after I became worried about damaging my hearing.
I went for these as I needed something to seal the sound in and not disturb my fellow commuters, without plugging anything deep into my ear..
For £30 I am well satisfied. They are lacking in a little bit of detail comapred to the Shures but that is obviously to be expected.
Bass response is excellent and I actually prefer the sound of these on some kinds of music. I have heard they can be difficualt to drive. All I can say is my iAudio player has no problems at all.
They are very light and comfortable and fold up neatly into my jeans pocket. They give some sound isolation and also seal a lot of the music in allowing me to crank it up to decent volumes on the train.
I was a bit hasty in my original rating. I'd probably give them a 7 or 8, with the AKGs a point higher.
They are good, but the AKG-26Ps sound better (especially on bass) and are not much bigger. I would go for those instead.
Pros Sound, Case, Foldable, size, and design
Cons Supra Aural Pain, Tricky positoning
Summary The PX200 were my first intro into the world of Sennheiser, and I say I made a good choice. These are fun headphones for all portable devices, CD players, PSP's, and MP3 Players.
Design Wise, Sennheiser hit the nail on portable head with a foldable design into a hard case which will protect your $60 dollar investment. Also the black and silver scheme just looks to cool to pass up, you can get it in white too for ipods.
Also it's different from it's brother, the PX100 as it offers a closed design with 5dB of attenuation.
Sound Wise, the headphone really fills the spectrum of sound, the bass is tight and punchy which fills my taste for classic rock and metal. Midrange is sweet on this headphone, it brings out vocals amazingly for it's small size, as for highs, they are not as articulate as IEMs, but are enjoyable and non-Fatiguing.
Comfort is pretty ok, except since this is a supra-aural headphone, meaning it sits on your ear, it can get uncomfortable for a while, and also to position it for full bass potentional, can get a little tricky, but once they're on, you'll enjoy it.
I recommend these headphones if you wish to have a bit of privacy, and enjoy a fun sound signature in a portable solution.
Hope this Helps.
Pros The sound quality of these headphones is very good in high and midrange. Base is strong too compared to other compact portable phones. They're very comfortable to wear, and do a very good job at filtering outside noises. Also these headphones are foldable
Pros Big bass, collapsible, light
Cons Collapsible feature can take some time to figure out
Summary I was looking for an over the ear headphone to replace my 10 yr old Panasonic ones. I loved my Panasonic because it worked very well over the years with my portable CD player, laptop and transferred very well to my various MP3 players giving very excellent bass. I reviewed all the buyers comments here and did some research before purchasing the PX200 and it was an excellent purchase for the value and performance. I have seen it priced anywhere from $32 to over $100 but I ended up buying it from Amazon for under $36 incl. no shipping and sales tax. The bass is amazing along with its lightweight. I take the train in to work and liked the close-end feature so that when I do turn up the volume it would not affect my fellow commuter next to me. The only really "negative" aspect of the headphones is the collapsible feature in that it can be cumbersome at times to fold up. However, there are small numeric symbols imprinted on the headphones that tell you which side to fold first in order to get it to fit into its case properly. This is my 1st Sennheiser purchase and I will definitely keep them in mind whenever I am looking for that next pair of headphones. I would definitely recommend that you get this if portabilty & big bass is what you are looking for.
