Sennheiser PX 100-II
In an act of refinement, Sennheiser has revised a classic extremely good headphone to produce one with fuller bass response. The cool folding features and portable sizing remain, but the PX100-II adds deeper lows to one of the most sonically pleasing tones in the category, along with a single-sided cable that prevents cord tangling when folded. The beefier headband design definitely improves durability and the small 'on-ear' open-back earpieces allow you to remain aware of activity near you when out and about on busy city streets.
- Vented open-back 'on-ear' earpieces allow listeners to remain aware of environs
- Unique 'Fold & Flip' construction collapses for on-the-go transit
- Proprietary Sennheiser 'Duo-Fol' driver engineering pumps deep bass, crisp vocals impressive for size
- Free Sennheiser 2-year manufacturer's premium product warranty
What's In The Box:
- Soft-Sided Travel/Storage Case

The sound of the revised Sennheiser PX100-II is attractive and, for the size, we think it amongst the top headphones in its category at this pricepoint, delivering punchy bass sans over-accentuation, decently balanced mid-ranges, and an extended treble without edge or tonal brashness. It's hard not to like a tiny portable headphone that does so much so well, and we think you'll enjoy it direct from your iPod, MP3 device, laptop computer or iPad with no headphone amp needed. This Sennheiser PX100-II model now boasts a nicely beefed-up headband assembly constructed for better durability to withstand daily wear and tear. Other key "II" improvements include thicker, sturdier earpiece frame supports and a new single-sided cable design (no messy 'Y-cord' rats nest!) that stays tangle-free in a supplied pouch. The open-back earpieces allow you to remain aware of surroundings, important if jamming large on busy streets. The new steel-reinforced headband design can be easily folded into a supplied travel pouch that's about the size of a sunglasses case, making the PX100-II the ultimate compact, multi-purpose portable headphone solution for discerning ears. Please allow minimum of 100hrs of play-time for these sweet little cans to 'burn-in' and sound their very best.
The Sennheiser PX100-II portable headphones come in a nifty all-black matte color encasing a very lightweight aluminum-reinforced headband. The headphone cord extends approximately 4ft, the perfect length for mobile and portable listening without cable jams, and it terminates to a 3.5mm (1/8") 'mini' plug jack. A Sennheiser soft-sided carrying / storage pouch is handily provided in the package into which the PX100 II will easily fold for transit. The free 2 year manufacturer's product warranty covers most any eventualities with this high-quality, well-engineered headphone as long as your vendor receipt shows original purchase via verified 'Sennheiser-authorized' dealer, like HeadRoom ~ Headphone.com since 1992!

Pros: Comfortable, nice design, light, great sound, cheap
Cons: No closed audio
When I got the box the first thing you will notice is that the exactly headphone is really small, no wonder because it's a traveling headphone, but still. When I opent the box I found a carrying pouch, and the headphone itself. The carrying pouch is nice but it won't really protect your headphone. But let's go on to the actually headphone.
When i first put it on my head I really was surprised about the sound qaulity and the comfort. I was really impressed because it's a really cheap and small headphone (bought it for $41,56). It's really light and portable so if you travel a lot it's perfect for that too. The only thing why I still have in-ear headphones is because it doesn't include closed audio. You will notice the smallest external noise, and that will disturb your music. But also people who standing around you can also enjoy your music and that is something you don't want.
In the end these headphones are definetly worth buying, but when the area is too crowded you still want some in ear headphones
