I was facing a 13 hour car ride and forgot my Bose headphones, and need something to get me through the trip. I saw these cheap Sennheiser headphones and almost passed them up. I have used other Sennheiser headphones and the quality was amazing so I decided to go by the brands reputation and give these a try for a one time trip. I was immediately amazed at the quality of these headphones. The build quality was good especially for the low price tag. The sound is what amazed me the most. I could barely tell the difference between these and the Bose that i paid 5 times the price for. They were very comfortable and I had no issues wearing the for the bulk of the ride. Anyone looking for a spare pair headphones or anyone on a tight budget or any parent that has a kid wanting good headphones, needs to buy these. There are no better headphones than these for the price. continues to impress.
