Advantages: The noise cancellation works
Disadvantages: The sounds are bass-heavy and distort easily
I bought these headphones because i read a really good review for them somewhere. I can't remember where now- one of the magazines - which is just as well for them as I'd never trust them again. At £30 I was hoping these would be a bargain - if they only worked better it would be a bargain price for noise-cancelling headphones by a quality make.
The headphones come with a little faux-leather pouch and three pairs of differently sized ear buds.
What's wrong with them then? Well, nothing exactly, but they just aren't that good for what they cost. The sound quality is good but not THAT good, I find it's too bassy, and the bass does distort when you turn up the volume when you're playing music. The noise cancellation works but kind of dulls the treble, so you're left with a bassy, hollow sound. To clarify, these are corded, not cordless headphones - my reference to cordless headphones is to a different set.
Also, maybe it's my ears that are at fault, but I found that of the three sizes of buds supplied two were far too big and one too small. I ended up selling these on ebay in the end, which is a pity because I love my other Sennheiser headphones (cordless earmuff types) to bits.
Summary: Buy some other model instead
