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?

3 out of 5 eggsDownhill quality.

Pros: Wonderful sound replication. Good quality mic (when it works). They (mostly, see cons) fixed the volume slider right/left imbalance of the PC150s.

Cons: This is the second, or maybe third, pair of PC 150/151s I've owned. All three died for the same reason: the Mic stopped working. I took extraordinary care of the cables, so I have no idea what caused them to stop working. Re-buying $60 headphones just because the mic breaks is silly, so for now, they are just that, headphones. I have a dedicated desk mic for that job no.

Also, the volume slider problem of the old PC-150s was fixed when these were new, but after a year or so of use, maxing out the volume (say, the last 3-5%) causes one ear to get more volume than the other, or both ears to get quiet. Moving it down a tick fixes this. It's a minor gripe, but still annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter 7 Years, It Finally.... died. (no regrets)

Pros: I've used these for 7 years... 'nuf said!

- Dead simple design and good build quality that makes them very durable.
- Great base without being too boomy and muddy.
- The mic sound is awesome (no surprise given the Sennheiser lineage).
- It's very comfortable hanging around the neck between use (the little things that make this a great headset).

Cons: - They do not isolate outside sound very well.
- They don't fold up.
- The fit is on the loose side (great if you have a large noggin like me) and not very adjustable.
- Drab, no nonsense style (a plus for some of us)

Other Thoughts: I bought these on newegg in 2007 (7 years ago!) which is why I still can write a review (love newegg). Needless to say, I'm very careful about equipment (my kids go though headsets about every 6 month). Recently, the right side lost the base response. Still works, but the sound is very thin and "tinggy". I'm pretty sure the cord has developed an open somewhere, hanging on by a single strand of copper wire. This is pretty much expected after 7 years of use. So I just want to leave this review and say these headsets have been awesome and I have absolutely no regrets in getting them.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent Sound Quality

Cons: -They break WAY TOO EASILY.
-Small, uncomfortable ear pads
-Expensive

Other Thoughts: I've had a few of these headsets over the years. Although the sound quality is decent, they are uncomfortable and are not built to last.

I can not recommend these based on how fragile they are. Invariably, you will snag your headphones on something and pull out the wires connected to the audio jack, or the control switch. They should be better build considering how much they ask you to pay.

5 out of 5 eggsThey are great

Pros: Just buy them. They sound great. Microphone is great. I've had them for easily over a year and they show no sign of not being able to last another 2 or 3.

Cons: I remember using them the first week and they would cause my ears to be sore. The padding WILL eventually mold to the shape of your ears and no longer hurt at all.

Other Thoughts: Buy them

4 out of 5 eggsGood Set, Mic died after warranty

Pros: Good audio quality, good microphone, appreciate the on-off switch for the microphone on the cord. Price seemed good for what you are getting compared to other quality headsets.

It also doesnt look overly large or overtly game-y, since I wear these at my office to make phone calls etc (and be on teamspeak...)

Cons: Microphone stopped working 3 years after purchase. However I was not using the headset for almost a full year. Warranty is 2 years, so thats another $60 I have to spend to replace it.

A 3 year life span isnt horrible so I'll give it 4 stars, though if it only lasts through 2 years of use that might be a bad thing.
