I switched from earbuds to these a few days ago. I listen to pretty loud music, so I was a bit disappointed the first time I tried the 228...not the loudest ever. But for the price, just crank your volume a bit higher, and after a few days, they really open up. They're not cheaply-built like everyone else is suggesting, either. Yeah, they're made of plastic, which makes them outrageously light, not to mention ridiculously comfortable. I listened to them last night from midnight to 5am and essentially forgot they were on my head. For the price, if you want a pair of very comfortable phones (that I find to have GREAT sound quality, but I'm not an audio snob) at a decent price for a premium brand, get these. If they're not loud enough for you, get a headphone amp, like i did. It was like 8 dollars.

These headphones are great. First I want to address the reviews that say they lack bass... Their bass is really good actually. The people who have said that either don't know how to set up an equalizer, or they've had some AWESOME headphones in the past. And guess what. THE JACK FITS AN IPHONE 1! There are a lot of headphones that don't fit the stupid recessed iPhone 1 jack(Yes, I know you could just buy one of those adaptors but it's still more convenient). I love the sleekness of these headphones also. And at first I worried about the silver plated jack instead of gold or copper. But then I found out you can't tell a difference unless you have the hearing of a bat, (the animal. not the baseball bat, lol.) so no worries. And don't worry about how it says, "optimized for portable media players", because you can still use it with your pc, I suggest just turning the preamp down maybe. I'm listening to Hallelujah by Lecrae while using these. I haven't even listened to them for 50 hours yet, so I may like them even more by then. Thanks for reading. Jesus is the way truth and the light.

Pros: Very light headphones (~4 ounces). The cable is the perfect length (4.5 feet). They sound amazing, even right out of the box. The padding is great, they help cut out some (more than I'd expect, but by no means noise canceling) external noise without even turning them on. Completely comfortable for the 4 hour sessions I use them for.

Cons: They leak a bit more then expected. Not a huge thing but they leak a little more than I thought they would (NOTHING like my HD 595 though, not even close). As I stated earlier thought they kind of cut out some external noise with the padding already so from my few days of using them, I have been using them at a lower volume than I typically do just because of how much the padding blocks out.

Also, not really a con for me but, the headphone padding sit on top of the ear and they aren't the biggest headphone pads I've seen. I can see someone with an above average ear size might want skip these as they my not sit properly on the ears which would probably cause them to sound less than pair.

I had replace a pair of ear buds (Sennheiser also) because I had accidentally washed them. Had my eyes on these and the HD 238 for some time but the price was too steep for my wallet at the time. Seeing these for about $30 was an absolute steal. I can't believe how well they worked right out of the box. I use these mostly for school when working on homework assignments in the library. I also use these for my iPod when walking between classes and they're great. The leak isn't even noticeable when outdoors (from what I can tell). These do sound like a 100 dollar pair of headphones. So getting them for anything less is totally recommended. Ever since I bought a pair of HD 595 I've been strictly buying Sennheisers for my music headphone needs. Get these headphones, and get them NOW while they're cheap. You won't regret it.
