Pros: These things have lasted me 6(!!) years with only a few small cracks in the plastic that only took some tape to fix. As far as sound quality they sound as good 6 years later as they did the first day I got them. The fact that these things last so long should say a lot.

Cons: None. You get what you pay for and more.

Review from long-time user 8/8/2013 7:53:51 PM

Pros: For the price, the sound quality you get from these sennies is incredible. Open design gives a more accurate open soundstage. Sure, you don't mute the world and the world can hear you too, but closed designs muddy the sound and bass becomes exaggerated beyond what's intended.

Cons: Aside from the grills on the sides, everything is plastic. It's been a few years of good use, but the earcups are starting to crack near the headband extenders.

Overall Review: As a not-quite-audiophile, Sennheiser hovers in that perfect space between top-shelf and performance grade. It's a premium product, more expensive than some, but cheap enough to be worth the money FOR SURE.

Pros: These headphones sounds, and looks amazing, relatively comfortable, and the cord is pretty long.

Cons: Though I love these headphones, I have a few complaints too. As some other people said, the silver plastic splits open, and overtime the crack only gets bigger.
Secondly, the earpads get very dusty and are difficult to clean.
Lastly, maybe it's just me, but after wearing it for an hour or so, the headphones starts hurting me because there's something with the design that's irritating my eat.

Overall Review: I've owned these headphones for three years now.

was awesome... at first 3/3/2012 5:38:55 PM

Pros: good sound and size

Cons: some portions cheap/weak

Overall Review: was a great pair of headphones at first. but with use, cracks appeared on both sides in the silver plastic area where the head part connects to each ear part. The plastic just doesnt seem heavy duty enough to hold up over time. The cracks just get bigger until the whole side splits. For the price I expect better!

Pros: I've had the headphones for over 4 years now and haven't even thought of purchasing a new headset. They are so comfortable that I never really feel them on my head, its kind of like a pillow wrapped around your ears. Sound quality is incredible - I can't keep myself unbanned from counter-strike servers because I can hear people running from their spawn!

Cons: I recently had to purchase another 3.5mm adapter because my dog some how bent the stock adapter running past my computer. I had to remove a few stars from my dog, but this product stays at a 5.

I didn't even know what I was missing 7/11/2011 1:31:36 AM

Pros: My entire life I've only ever owned speakers for all of my electronic equipment. Before purchasing these headphones the only other headphones I had ever used were the default iPod ones--is that weird? Anyway, this incredible technology changed my life. I listen to music completely differently now thanks to these headphones; it's pretty amazing how much more awesome chilling out to some jams is now--peanut butter & jelly sandwich in hand (don't forget the milk!). The bass sounds full and deep, neither overpowering nor lacking. The higher frequencies sound crisp and rich, not shrill or empty. Everything just sounds better, in every way.

Whenever I hear a new song without these headphones and then listen to it again with them, I hear new things. It's pretty cool. Seriously get these or any other high quality headphones if you're into music at all. It'll blow your sweet mind, especially if you've never listened to music with a high fidelity audio system.

Cons: I can't wear them 24/7. That would be unrealistic--it would be difficult to shower with them on, and the water would surely damage them. I wish I could experience every new song for the first time with these things.

They also make you look kind of 'tarded when you're wearing them.

Overall Review: I've sat on them, dropped them, slept on them, stepped on them, and scratched them many many times and they aren't even close to showing signs of weakness.
