    Great headphones

    The headphones are great - rich sound with great representation throughout the spectrum. Comfortable with good noise isolation. No dropping or issues with Bluetooth on an aptX-enabled phone. Battery life is mediocre to a bit short - the claimed 6 hours; but at least it charges fast. The placement of the battery adds a bit of a weight on the left ear, which I do not like (and may be a nuisance during exercises). Additionally, for some reason the right cable more often than not twists in such a way that the microphone points away from me (to the "outside" world). During call people sometimes ask me to speak louder, but then again I tend to do speak in a low voice.

    PRO:

    Great sound; Good noise isolation; Reliable Bluetooth

    CON:

    Battery adds weight to left ear and may jump around during exercises

    BEST USES:

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.

    Great buy

    Bought these on sale from JB Hifi Aus for$279. Previously had the Optoma Nuforce be3 after testing Bose and not being particularly impressed with the volume. The Optoma's were good, but died recently. When I can, I'll choose Sennheiser over any other brand, due to pure sound quality. Had these for 2 weeks so far. Better sound and range than the Optoma's I had. More comfortable and don't cut out like my old one's would when exercises involved my arm being near the reciever. Happy bunny so far!

    PRO:

    Great clarity, volume and bass Lightweight Comfort Blutooth range

    CON:

    Battery life

    BEST USES:

    Gym

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
