Thank you Sennheiser for making high quality audio enjoyment so affordable


Pros: Superb quality with a pleasing base complementing the sweet treble. Nice design, carrying pouch

The base stands out immediately. Not overpowering but complementary to the treble to produce an immensely warm and full bodied feeling. I test drove this pair of gems on Travis´ Side. The music resonated and enveloped me and led me into a drunken state of bliss. I praise Sennheiser for making great headphones for people of all budget profiles. This is a highly affordable pair of headphones that produce fantastic music for the masses. I rate this pair equal to my highly rated Philips IE Fidelio S2. The Philips have a more subtler base but are nevertheless equally loved by me. I will alternate this two pairs of IE headphones on my mountain biking trips. 

Srong, warm, rich and exciting sound. Pefect for mountain biking.


Pros: The exquisite sound first and foremost, sturdy and stylish design, five pairs of rubber fits, price. Great when biking with my helmut on.

Cons: none

Philips products are world renowned for quality and good pricing.Sure enough I was not disappointed. Worth every dollar of the US $150 I paid for. I would pay more for this beautiful piece of audio engineering that will be my perfect companions when I go mountain biking in the forest. The ear pieces that came ready for use sit well in my ears and should stay on while I ride those bumpy trails in the forest.   I listen mostly to folk rock and acoustic music. I test listened my new friend to Gabe Dixon's 'Even the Rain' on my Ipod touch. At half the volume setting, the song played sweet and strong and punchy with well balanced treble and base that gave me an extremely warm...

A cyclist's best companion.


Pros: design for snug fit in ear canal, excellent audio qualities, superb isolation

Cons: No remote control

Love them. First and foremost, the audio is excellent for acoustic music. Secondly, the isolation is superb. Who needs noise canceling when you have these?. 3rdly, the are perfect for me when I am cycling with my helmut on. Training on bicycle has never been more fun since I found you.

Super comfortable with excellent audio qualities


Pros: Super comfortable, design, excellent for acoustic music. Appropriate bass for rcck music

Cons: wire has a mic for remote control use in ipods and iphones. However it doesn´t have volume control.

For music on the go. This are my favourites for the moment. I rate it even higher than the Sennheiser Momentum because the cans are much more comfortable.   In terms of Bass qualities,I prefer them to my AKG 551 which I rated very highly also.    So my favourte portable headphones are as follows:   1. Sony MDR 1A 2. Sennheiser momentum 3. AKG 551 4. House of Marley EM-FH003-HA Exodus  5. Harmon Kardon Soho white

Life in Technicolour


Pros: Portability + magnificent sound

Cons: cups are too small for people with big ear flaps

This pair of beauty have unseated my AKG 551 as a my favourite portable headphones to go with my ipod touch while I enjoy my spotify playlists.     Coldplay´s "Life in Technicolour" is an excellent track to test drive headphones. After a good listening of my other headphones, Momentum brings out the colour in the song more vividly and brightly. 

Comfortable indoor reference headphone


Pros: Comfort, wide spacious sound stage

Love this pair of headphones. Huge sound stage. Great for classical music. The bass is not shabby and is good enough to enjoy Coldplays Viva la Vida.   Of course comprable amplifiers are necessry accompaniment for the DT800Pro to perform optimally.      My wires are starting to be faulty from wear and tear after 2 years and not from heavy useage.  

modest but stylish look but has a great sound


Pros: Fantastic full bodied detailed sound. Beautiful design and tan colour for men. Paddings are comfortable even after two hours of clamping.

Cons: Can't think of anything yet

Beethoven's concerti no. 4 and 5 brilliance to my ear drums compelled me to purchase this without hesitation.    Parts of the proceeds go to charity makes me want to buy another Bob Marley environmentally people loving head phones. soon. 

Loved it until.....


Pros: Audio is precise, full bodied, richly resonating and so natural and neutral, comfort

Cons: RIght hinge broke after use of 2 weeks......clumsy design... built not sturdy, hinges are too plastic

For expensive headphones such as this, my litmus test is one of Beethoven's 9th symphony. For this pair of babies, it was  London Symphony Orchestra – Symphony No. 1 In C Major, Op. 21: II. Andante Cantabile Con Moto.  And this took me to Beethoven nirvana!  Now I am saving for Shure's SRH1840.   Unfortunately the right hinge broke suddenly without rhyme or reason after only 2 weeks of ownership. With other owners complaining about the same thing. It must be a manufacturing's fault. I am disappointed because other wise I would have given it 5 stars for the sound quality.

Perfect for acoustic folk songs and other genres probably


Pros: Rich, warm, detailed and balanced audio, super comfortable to the ears,

Cons: Needs amp.

Superb sounding to the likes of Howie Day and Matt Nathanson. They sound perfect. Thanks to this pair of sweet babies and Spotify of course. Been a premium member for two years now. Life without a good pair of headphones and Spotify will be so unbearable now.    For classical music for example, Sarah Walker – Symphony No. 9 in D minor 'Choral' Op. 125: I. Allegro ma non troppo, un poco maestoso,  what may sound harsh to the ears with a pair of Soul Ludacris 150 (which I have a pair), is transformed into sweet symphonic magic with the Bere 880. Treble is detailed, smooth as silk and classy.
