    I bought these as a replacement for my broken PX 200s 1st edition. My experience with the 1st gens was that they were great overall, although they had the following cons:

    1. The cable was made up of two individual wires. This meant that the cable would get tangled upon itself and just about every time id put them on, I would have to spin the cable around to get it straightened
    2. The cable split to both ear pieces. This resulted in the cable always being directly under your chin which could at times be awkward
    3. Extended use (1 hour or more) made my ears get sweaty, regardless of volume

    The 2nd gens have corrected each of the above mentioned issues. The cable is one solid wire, meaning no tangles. The cable only connects to the LEFT ear piece, meaning that the wire goes down more gracefully by the side of your face. Ive worn them to the gym 3 or 4 times, and have not experienced much ear-sweat, if any.

    Quality/Comfort
    I’m not an audiophile, but in my opinion the sound quality is great for gym usage with hip hop/rock/techno playlists. The headphones block out the music playing at my gym quite nicely, which is critical because Lifetime Fitness has invested in a quality sound system which they use to blast Britney Spears and Rihanna all day. They are as comfortable as any other headphone I’ve ever worn, although I haven’t used that many well known headphones besides the 1st Gens and some lower priced Sennheiser models.

    Specs:
    The cable is roughly 4 feet long, with the volume controller being about 1 foot away from the end of the cord. One other aspect of the volume controller that is worth noting is that it has a “clip” mechanism on the back of it that allows you to attach it to your shirt/pants/etc. They are CLOSED style, which means that nearby people will NOT be able to hear them… making them a nice option for work environments. One more nice feature is that you can turn the ear pieces 90 degrees (so that if you are wearing the headphones around your neck, the ear pieces will be pointing outwards) to make them more collapsible for storage. You can also point the ear cups outwards and play music for friends or yourself.

    Cons:
    The only CON I’m aware of so far is that they don’t collapse quite as nicely as the 1st Gens because the volume controller gets in the way. They still collapse though (just not as well), which allows for more convenient storage than 95% of decent sounding portable headphones.

    Summary:
    If I was in the market for a portable headphone, I would buy these again… as long as they were within $20 of the first generation version.

    I have headphones on most of the day – every day. I was looking for a new pair, because the previous, behind the head, style really irritated me. So, I researched for quite a while before I found these. I was looking for a pair that was NOT over the ear, since I didn’t want that weight and feel all day long. I was also looking for the single wire from one side and volume control. I would have settled for less, but luckily found these.

    I am extremely impressed with the sound blocking. I was absolutely shocked at how much sound is blocked. It just doesn’t seem possible, considering their small size. It’s kinda weird actually. Because I wear them all day, there are times when the noise blocking is actually a hindrance, so I wind up moving one side off the ear so I can hear my surroundings. It’s not ideal, but that is not the fault of the headphones.

    They are very comfortable. I can literally wear them for 8 hours straight without the least bit of discomfort. Again, pretty amazing. I did experience more warmth than desired on my ears at first, but within a couple hours that was gone. I guess I got used to it.

    I am impressed with the build quality. I was very happy to see that the entire headband is metal reinforced, with metal hinges. It just has a nice solid feel. I’ve only had them for a few weeks now, so I can’t speak to longevity, but I see no weak links so far.

    I can’t understand the complaints of “weak” bass response. I believe these phones provide a very balanced range, with everything clear and crisp from high to low. I suppose if you’re expecting your head to thump, like every third Honda Civic with 8 subwoofers, weed-eater exhaust note, and 26″ rims, you might be disappointed. However, if you would like your music to sound realistic – resembling closely the recording, these will probably satisfy. Keep in mind these are $50 headphones. Don’t expect them to outperform a pair of $100+ studio monitors. However, having said that, I don’t want to wear studio monitors for 8 hours a day.

    Very pleased.

    UPDATE: Recently I was able to compare, side by side, these headphones to my brother’s Sony MDR-V6 studio monitors. The studio monitors have better sound isolation, and better base response, as you’d expect. however, I was really impressed with how close these came to matching the overall performance, considering the diminutive size compared to the over-the-ear studio monitors.

    UPDATE: Purchased in February, now it is December, and they have survived so far. I keep them in the storage bag, and try to be careful with them, since the single cable is so thin. Even after (reluctantly) letting my teenage daugther use them occasionally, they still work fine. I was a little worried about the wire or the volume control flaking out, but so far so good.

    These headphones are great for on ear closed headphones. These do not block all outside noises but they do muffle them and they also do not leak music as to disturb others around you. Great for desk use at work. The headphones can also be used safely while jogging outside because they still allow you to hear things around you, just not as much as open headphones. The sound quality is excellent and much improved over the original PX 200s. The in line volume adjustment comes in very handy. The cord also comes out of the left ear piece which is also a very nice feature. The cord is a different texture that feels really smooth and elegant. These are very sturdily built and are much sturdier than the former PX 200s. Skip the PX 200s and purchase the PX 200-IIs. You will not regret this great Sennheiser purchase.
