4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: -Light weight
-Comfortable on head and ears
-Good sound

Cons: -Mic sort of "sticks out" and the rubbery part is supposed to flex closer to your mouth but it still feels a little stiff. You can also accidentally pull at the mic if you take them off in a hurry.
-Sound volume feels like it needs to go a notch higher. Sound also distorts if too loud but that could be just musical track related.

Other Thoughts: SENNHEISER does have a reputation for quality as I knew I was getting a quality product since I had their product before. I do recommend these over bulkier brands so far. I just hope they have a long life span.

1 out of 5 eggsSound Decent, but that's all.

Pros: These headphones sound very slightly better than my eleven dollar Ovann headset, and are slightly more comfortable.

Cons: The cable on these headphones is a tragedy. I equate this cable to the cable on the free earbuds that airlines will give you on international flights. The slightest pull will disconnect the internal connections on the volume control. Microphone is average at best.

Other Thoughts: Like I said in the pros, these sound slightly better than my Ovann headset, but just slightly. And when you consider that I only paid eleven dollars for the Ovanns and they are still going strong after three years due to excellent wiring and craftsmanship, I can't recommend these Sennheiser headphones that cost five times as much and are flimsy seconds in comparison.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, low quality hardware

Pros: The sound is good and the headset is comfortable.

Cons: The front and back pieces of the volume control widgets are not glued or "welded" together. They separate easily into two pieces. One can snap them back together, but unless one is very careful, the very thin wires will be cut. The wires themselves and their connection to the volume control are very low quality. They are not glued, welded, or otherwise securely attached to the volume control. Thus, during normal use these wires tend to move a little bit back and forth within the volume control unit and eventually they break - in my case after two years of light use.

Other Thoughts: I have been using Sennheiser headsets for more than 3 decades and their products have always been well manufactured high quality products. The PC 151 is an exception. While the sound quality is good and the headset is comfortable, the build quality is low. Sennheiser should either stop cutting corners and fix the design problems or sell this headset at a significantly lower price under a different name. As it is now, this headset does major damage to their brand.

3 out of 5 eggsQuality?

Pros: I refer to my pro tag she was very good at first but really sucked when she left {and before too ;-] }

Cons: I have been a Sennheiser fanatic for 30 years but they like most company's these days take shot cuts now a days. We've had 2 pairs of these and the same thing happened to both. one or two little tugs on that skinny @*& wiring and that's it. I have 2 pairs of cans from another company that I could swing around by the wires if I wanted to and may have but I don't remember, the difference to me was then they used coiled well protected wiring.and not paper then or poorly anchored. I will not purchase from them again until they address this shortcoming.

Other Thoughts: what else can I say two pairs one for me and one for my daughter and they both broke and she is meticulously care with EVERYTHING she owns. In other words don't touch her I just felt bad for buying them for her.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value headset

Pros: I am not an audiophile so I can't comment on how precise the sound is; however, in my four years of gaming with these I have never had a problem with the sound quality. At normal volume both game sounds and VOIP participants were crisp and clearly understood. No complaints of sound leakage to others in chat.

The supra-aural design allowed for many multi-hour gaming sessions with no discomfort or sweating of my ears. The cloth (don't know what specific material) ear cushions & headband are very comfortable, and make the headset feel very light while wearing it.

The mic boom has a wide swing arc so I could set the mic below my mouth - no breathing into the mic and still clear voice transmission!

Nice long cord - I can wheel across the office to grab something on a whim without yanking these off my head.

Cons: The inline volume control. I've ran over the regular part of the cord due to its length many times without issue, but the connections at the volume control (which always sits well above the floor) are flaky:

- After about three years of regular use (6-10 hours per week on average) sound started cutting out in one ear. I eventually traced it to the volume control being set at max; backing off the wheel just a little bit was able to resolve this issue. Once I knew the treatment, this was rarely a problem.
- After nearly four years, the mic is finally failing. Wiggling the cord at the volume control can restore it, but it eventually cuts out again after a while. As I use this headset for communication, this will force me to upgrade.

Other Thoughts: This is my first set of Sennheiser headsets. I've heard the term "infamous Sennheiser clamp" and it's real: during the first month or so of use the headband was like a tightly wound spring - I could definitely feel it squeezing my head. Not painful, but concerning at first; if it had kept feeling like that throughout its life it would have been too annoying. However, after wearing it in for a bit that feeling has been GONE for years, and they now have a perfect fit - snug enough to not fall off (hard to accomplish with supra-aural!) yet light enough to barely feel them. I chalk this phenomenon up to "breakin period," so no eggs docked.

The supra-aural design allows you to hear most outside sounds with little to no muffling effect. I knew this before purchase and this is what I wanted; however, some people prefer sound isolation (for better quality/clarity) so these do not provide that. Again, I made an informed decision and this was my preference, so no eggs docked.

Despite the mic ultimately failing, I feel this headset was a good value for me, considering how long it lasted. I will consider Sennheiser again, although for my upgrade I will spring for a set which does not have that inline volume control.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: These are glorious. By far the best headset I've ever owned. Five years and going strong. Whenever these die, I'm probably going to get them again.

Very comfortable even over 12-18 hour sessions. They're large enough to provide immersive sound but they still allow for air to circulate through, meaning your ears don't start to feel gross after a while. Also valuable if you live in hot climates/homes, getting sweaty is not an issue.

Audio quality is excellent - better than I anticipated given they sit on top of the ears rather than fully surrounding. As good as audio quality gets without spending insane amounts of cash.

Mic quality is superb. I've done a lot of podcasts and livestreams, and my listeners routinely comment that my voice quality is superior to that of many others.

Build quality is very high. Nothing has ever torn, ripped, snapped, or even chipped. I've run over the cables with my chair hundreds of times, I've dropped them from heights of 4 feet and above over and over, they've been stuffed into backpacks and luggage for dozens of separate trips - still going strong.

Cable is plenty long and makes them usable no matter where my computer is stuffed.

Mine also came with a nifty USB to 3.5mm converter.

Cons: The ear pads are not replaceable, and being five years old they're a bit icky at this point. I've tried washing them delicately with soap and water but it's just not enough. I've taken to covering them with socks, so this is no longer an issue.

Changing the volume causes static on the input. Using the mic mute switch transmits a loud *click* that everyone can hear, so it's not very subtle.

1 out of 5 eggsyou're paying for a name

Pros: * comfortable
* good sound quality

Cons: * very poor build quality
* plastic began peeling off of head cushion after a couple years
* in-line volume control started to fail after about 1 year

Other Thoughts: Sennheiser used to build high quality components, but the junk that here being sold here on Newegg is just that; junk!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat... While it lasted

Pros: Worked great while it lasted

Cons: Minor wear and tear on these headphones and the microphone gave out after a little over 5 months. I even have the cord wrapped up so it wouldn't be stepped on. Sennheiser is a decent company but these headphones are very cheaply made. I wouldn't recommend them.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years later, still running like new!

Pros: I have had this headset since 2009. The same one. Not a replacement, not an upgrade. The same headset. And it works like new. This is the headset you get when you want serious quality without a serious price tag. I actually bought them on sale for less money back then than they are going for now! The PC151 is famous for a reason, folks. I've had it for 5 years and I can say the audio quality is second to none. The microphone works fantastically well and has never disappointed me in any way.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just stop looking and buy this already. Seriously. How many other headsets will last 5 years and work like-new after heavy use?
