I do really like this headphone because of its noticeable value for money.
In this respect It reminds me some of the most popular, former Sennheiser models I owned, such as HD 414 and HD 424.
It is an amazing stuff, under many aspects.
First of all is the overall frequency response. Bass are there and not a few thing. Something you don't expect in 130 g. Of course bass quality is not atop, but quantity and impact are ensured.
Mid and high ranges are correct, with a good level of detail.
Frame is simple, materials looks good. The result should be of a certain reliability, probably better than the vintage, "yellows", HD4XX mentioned here above.
I bought it mainly because i needed a headset with some insulation, for my night listenings. And also in this respect I have not been disappointed.
It is lightweight and the cups are well shaped and dimensioned: comfort is ok.
I too appreciate the long, 3m cable, that has let someone complain.
But it is a matter of usage. Being in my case stationary, in-house, I prefer this "DJ standard" length. On the other hand I can agree that this could be a problem for portability, when needed.
A plastic spool, for winding the cable on, is provided in the box, as standard accessory.
It does not seem fully functional but better than nothing anyway.
In conclusion: This is a great entry level or a good complementary headphone, such as in my case.
In a more generic sense I could say that these are the hi-fi devices that we would need today.
Something that can bring in this musical world more people, especially the youngest.
High quality at affordable price: an engineering challenge that Sennheiser has seemed able to win.

Every review I've ever read of these states: "For the price, these can't be beat." And I agree, but "for the price" is a relevant caveat. Bass is pronounced, more so than my MDR-V6's, but is somewhat muddy, especially in the 125-500Hz range. Mids and especially highs are nothing special, when I used to listen to these I would immediately switch to my Sennheiser PX100's whenever I didn't need isolation. Comfort is pretty good, not nearly as tight as my Sony's. Unfortunately, the cord design is idiotic (flimsy 10ft straight cord) and the headphones do not fold whatsoever. So they suck. But they're $20. So they're great!

They are definitely the best headphones i've tried for this price. Good solid Bass and a fair insulation.

Very pronounced bass. Their sound signature reminds me most of the BOSE triports I tried at target, but with slightly muddy highs. I think they sound great for being so cheap!
