Sennheiser PX100 Headphones £15.95!

This is a very good price for these cans at Amazon.co.uk , which are among the best around at their usual price point, and a huge step up from the earbuds supplied with music players. They fold up and fit into a supplied case.

They are actually sold through the marketplace so there is a £4.23 p&p charge.

Amazon.co.uk sell them with free delivery for £19.99.

Why though? I know the difference aesthetically, but why should the pmx actually be better?

The reviews for the PMX 100s tend to say that they can be fairly tight and get uncomfortable after a short period, but sound quality is v good. The PX 100 reviews are more positive for comfort. Looking at www.sennheiser.co.uk the tech specs are identical, so I would imagine both use the same drivers. I'm seriously considering getting a pair of the foldable PX200s as they are closed back which I prefer and ****** off people around much less than the open back 100s.

I'm after the PX200s as well - if anyone spots an amazing deal on these let me know.

Current best price seems to be about £30 delivered off various Ebay retailers or Amazon marketplace.

I do worry about looking like a dork with the over-the-head headband type headphones. I know I shoudn't concern myself with what others think - but it does make you look a bit 1982 (although back then it was a silver headset with orange sponges).

I wouldnt bother with the PX200's if you want good sound quality. After using PX100's for a year or so I bought some PX200's and was shocked how bad they were in comparison. There is less bass and the sound is less natural. The PX100's are superb for the money, I tend to use them more than my 565 Ovations which cost me £150 :O

I agree completely about the difference in sound quality, but the PX100's are a problem if you're using them in close proximity to other people. The sound leaks quite badly and if you're on a bus/tube/train you're going to annoy people.

I have PX100s and PMX100s. I bought the PX100s quite a long time ago. I used to listen to music (or the radio) when I was cycling using Sennheiser MX400 earbuds. These have decent sound quality, but would easily fall out of my ears. I couldn't wear the PX100s with a cycle helmet, so I got PMX100s, which overcame the problem, and they are brilliant. IMO the sound quality of the PX100s and the PMX100s is very good for the price. I understand the PX100s and the PMX100s are the same headphone in a different style. The PX100s have the very significant advantage that they fold up and fit into a supplied case, which makes it very practical to put them into a briefcase or whatever when one is travelling.

I've got two sets of PX100s, a black pair and a white pair! They're fab, and for the price they're an absolute steal.

Another for the PX100s - had mine for a good 18mths or so now and they're by far the best headphones I've purchased to date...
