    These headphones are fantastically comfy, light weight, and sound amazing. The single cord design is far superior to the PX 100.

    In a quiet room the depth and clarity of the audio they provide really shines. If you add ambient noise they are still good but expect to hear all the normal racket around you. That said I don't think twice about wearing these out in busy streets and traffic as I can hear 90% of what is going on around me.

    It is debatable whether or not this is a con as it is by design but the cord is short.

    My bottom line recommendation is that if you need portable high quality audio and don't need or want isolation then these are the headphones for you!

    Great sound. Easy to Carry. One fatal flaw. I have had three sets of these, each developed the same problem. The mini plug connection is vulnerable to damage, resulting in one channel becoming intermittent. Wonderful product, until this problem crops up. The wires are too fine to solder another stereo mini plug on. In other words, not fixable by the user. I won't buy another pair. It's a shame though, otherwise a good product.

        Comments about Sennheiser PX 100-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

        These are fantastic sounding headphones, and I am very picky about sound. The bass is solid and not over emphasized like so many popular cans are. Mids are on point and highs are just about right...could maybe have a bit more highs but I'd much rather have a little less highs than a little too much. Well balanced sound, in line with my Shure 215 in ears. They are comfortable, although my ears hate anything touching them so I generally prefer over ear headphones but most people should find these very comfy, lightweight and portable. Great product and as always, B&H rocks.

          Sennheiser quality and they can easily fold down to fit in your pocket or the pocket of your laptop case.
          Much better sound than earbuds and a good price.

            These headphones are extremely versatile. They combine good sound, outstanding portability, and very good comfort. They seem quite well built for such a lightweight, foldable product. They are easy to drive with a smartphone (LG G2 in my case).

            I've noticed improvement in the treble detail and overall balance after playing them in for a couple of weeks. There's a little personal acclimation in this effect as well. At this point I'm really happy with the overall sound.

            They really sound like full-size headphones, due to the generous soundstage and decent bass performance. They belie their tiny size in this regard. My main comparison is to Grado SR80 and Beyer DT250-250. They may not have quite the fun sound of the Grados, but they are actually a bit more refined.

            Factoring in the great price from B&H, this is a can't go wrong purchase.

                When doing on-site, multiple-mic deposition mixes I need quality phones while maintaining contact with room ambience. They must be light-weight & comfortable for occassional all-day sessions.I used a pair of Sony MDR-34s for over 15 years, replacing the foam earpads several times as needed. The platic headband finally fatigued beyond repair. That model was discontinued long ago. I have a pair of (similar) Sennheiser PX-30s for backup, but the twin cable design is inconvenient to use.The PX 100-IIs exceed every criteria for the job, with the bonus of its collapsible design for ease of packing. Superior for voice mixing and the full freq response reveals air handling & other background noise. Great with music, too.Not 'cheap' phones, but an excellent value!

                These are great headphones. I have used these as well as the previous model (PX100),all day, every day for the last four or five years. They sound fantastic and are very comfortable. Because they are 32 ohms, they pair perfectly with my ipod. The only issue is that after about a year there is a break in the cable which causes one of the ear pieces to stop working. This is my third pair because of this breakage. However, I continue to pruchase these headphones because they are by far the best I have found for the money.

                Comments about Sennheiser PX 100-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

                I use these headphones for listening to music, primarily from an Ipod. First the good:-great sound quality. These are my 3rd pair (see note about cord lifetime) of these headphones. They sound good and my latest pair has better bass response. - comfort - extremely comfortable. Many times I listen to music before bed and then wake up hours later with the headphones still on - ears do not ache. They put just the right amount of pressure for good sound but not too tight to hurt your head or ears- portable - they fold up for easy portability. My first two pair came with a hard plastic case for transportation, the latest pair only comes with a soft bag. Now the bad:- cord length - the cord is pretty short and doesn't give you a lot of length to move around.- cord longevity - this is the worst thing about them. As I mentioned, this is my 3rd pair of these headphones. I usually get a couple of years out of them before the cord will short out right at the plug. The wire is simply too thin. They are not repairable either. On my latest pair I wrapped the plug where the wire comes in with electrical tape and heat shrink trying to extend the life. We'll see if that works.

                    Much better clarity than any earbuds I've used. Bass is real good considering minimal power behind the signal. Foam ear pads a little on the cheap side and I can see they will wear out quickly. Am mindful of other reviewers' comments about the flimsiness of the plug, so I don't tough it if I don't have to.

                    my only complaint is the impedance is a little much.

                      My 28-year-old PDP-100 is developing metal fatigue. Nothing lasts forever. Sennheiser discontinued the PDP-100. The PX-100 is the closest thing to a replacement. Its sound is a little harder (more brittle) than the PDP-100. It has features making it an ideal travel headphone. So 4 of 5 stars. The PDP-100 when new (and for about 27 years) was 5 of 5 stars.

                        I wanted sturdy, compact headphones to use in conjunction with my work as a journalist, where I often record interviews for later transcription. These are fine for that purpose. I had previously owned Sennheiser headphones that provided better audio quality but were not as sturdy as the ones I just bought.

                              I wear hearing aids but need to use headphones with my computer from time to time. The over-the ear versions cause the hearing aids problems - especially with feedback. The on-ear Sennheiser are perfect for me. The only reason I rated them 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because they are a little snug.

                                I got this to augment my PX 100 (original version), which is still working well after many years. I've found the combination of the PX 100 connected to an iPhone in my shirt pocket to be wonderful for working around the house, reading, and as a hotel-room travel companion. With lossless files on iTunes or streams from MOG or TuneIn Radio, this gives me a surprisingly high quality portable sound system. Because the PX 100 and PX 100-II are so light and clamp the ears so gently, it's easy to listen for hours without fatigue. The open-back on-ear configuration lets me hear conversation or other things in my environment (I use IEMs if I want isolation).The PX 100-II version brings up a bit more bass, but keeps the very balanced and detailed overall sound of the original version. To my ears, the sound is silky but clear. No excessive treble or bass to generate listener fatigue. I listen mostly to acoustic jazz, so my frame of reference for speakers, headphones and earphones is to judge how realistic acoustic instruments and voice sound to me, and how clear the stereo soundstage. Essentially seeking the features of an accurate studio monitor. The PX 100 and PX 100-II both sound accurate to me, and even more so when connected to my full stereo system or to computer audio with a good DAC. I think you get 90% of the sound of high-end headphones with these light-weight inexpensive guys—what a bargain!

                                  In terms of sound quality these are great, although they are getting pricey. This is my second pair, the first lasting about 2 years before the mini-plug imploded. This second pair I bought October 2011 - 8 months ago - and one of the channels just went on, most likely the mini-plug again as I've been careful with the set and they show no physical damage. So I suggest Sennheiser put more thought and material into the chord and plug.

                                  I use these mostly at my computer for both reviewing video edits and listening to music. They are light, comfortable and sound terrific without cutting me off from sounds I need to hear -- from colleagues to a ringing telephone. Yet to be seen how durable they are for the long-term, but I am very satisfied with the purchase
