Our Verdict

Although the bass lacks true authority, they deliver clear and detailed vocals and decent dynamism

For

  • Decent dynamism
  • clear and detailed vocals
  • well controlled treble

Against

  • Hook design sits a little distance from your ear holes

This pair of Sennheisers is a hook design that, while secure on your ear, feels a little vague in your lughole.

There's also a degree of vagueness to the delivery, and the bass lacks true authority, but vocals are very clear and detailed, and there's a sparkly, well controlled treble plus decent dynamism.
