Pros - Sound quality, price, single wire, comfortable, portability.
Cons - Design
These are one of the best open design headphones in this price range. They are very clear and don't leak as much as I thought they would. They are pretty inexpensive and I love the single sided wire. They are very comfortable so you can have them on for hours. The best thing about this model is you can fold them and stuff them in your bag or pockets. These are one of my best purchases, but of course there are always better ones so I upgraded!
I highly recommend these for listening on the go. On buses, you may want to have the volume controlled or the person next to you will hear it. These leak a little less than other open design headphones.
Pros - ultralight and comfortable, single sided cord
Cons - no hard case, more expensve than its predecessor
I just picked up a pair of PX100-ii today. I've been missing the PX100, and I've been curious how the sequel improves on the first one. First impressions (comparison to original from memory)...
Sound: the bass is a tiny bit louder and kicks harder, mids a little more laid back but a bit cleaner, highs the same. Running a frequency sweep, I think the highs on the ii are maybe a bit less wobbly. On fast bass heavy songs, the bass tends to bleed a bit into the mids. Other than that though, it just adds some emphasis to the midbass. Soundstage feels maybe a tad wider, but I might be imagining it.
Build: a bit thicker, it just feels nicer in your hand. The one sided cable is also a nice change. Folds up just as tiny as before. I miss the hard case though.
Comfort: If the PX100 rated a 10 on Joker's scale, this one is a 9.5 because it's just a smidge heavier. The clamp feels a bit stronger, but as these are new I'm sure that will loosen up. Otherwise, it just melts away and you forget it's there.
Verdict: Sennheiser had a winning formula and didn't mess with it. The build is much improved, and the sound is tuned slightly towards the bass which is what the major demographic listens to anyways (though to be honest the sound signature is similar enough that it might actually be identical and it's just the placebo effect talking), while still retaining that warm midrange texture of the original. The price is up a bit, which puts it into competition with a lot of good cans, but I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone. If you already have the PX100 though, no need to upgrade.
