While the HD2.30i is an "on ear" headphone (as opposed to the over ear closed headphones like the HD-280s) they still offer quite a bit of sound isolation. They fit tight against the ear with think foam padding. As someone who isn't a fan of full on noise cancelling headphones this is the kind of sound blocking I prefer, but it will reduce your ability to hear the outside world so it might not be the best choice for someone jogging/biking.
These headphones have a single detachable cord that plugs into the right ear piece, with a 3 button inline remote. Two of the buttons control volume, and the third (middle) button acts as a smart button. One press will pause the music, two will skip songs, and holding it down will activate Siri. This is also where the mic is located, and it seemed to have no trouble hearing me.
I got these as an upgrade to the PX-100 Sennheiser PX 100 Lightweight Collapsible Headphones (Discontinued by
Manufacturer) that I purchased in 2009, still going strong. The HD2.30i are a clear upgrade in sound quality and do a much better job with isolation.
These headphones do fold up and come with a cloth pouch, but they do take up more room than the smaller and thinner PX-100 headphones for those that really want something that folds up as small as possible.
I can't speak for longevity on these, because I just got them. But given the exceptional track record Sennheiser has had for me I am hoping these will last for years. If they don't and break too quickly, I will update the review to reflect that.
The thing that always annoyed me with the PX-200 was the volume control because it was always resting right where I always wanted to rest my left hand on my desk. I do not have that same problem with these HD2.30G headphones because the volume control is right up near my head and the headphones, and combined with the longer cord these HD2.30G headphones provide, it is a much more pleasurable experience chilling out listening to music with these headphones than it was with the PX-200; and with literally all the other headphones I have experience with.
Update (purchased August 2017, update September 2018): they still are rocking and are still very comforitable after over a year later, which is amazing. Usually the foam will start to deteriorate by now but it's still like new for me except for some discoloration from skin oils. The only issue I had was the cord started to start to pull out of where it connects to the headphones because I regularly drop the headphones and accidently yank on the cord, but I got some gorilla hotglue sticks and a hotglue gun to reinforce the connection of the cord up into the headphone and that has held super solid for a long time now. The sound quality didn't even degrade while the cord was pulled out a bit.

The audio jack connection is very, very weak so if you happen to drop your device while these are plugged into it, and said device lands on the audio jack - then it's curtains unfortunately. Likewise if you have these in your pocket whilst walking, the jack will eventually loosen and audio will be partially/fully lost. I have had two pairs of these broken in this way in 9 months and I am someone who very rarely breaks their electronic goods. These suffer where other headphones of mine have had absolutely no issue.
Sennheiser do not offer spare cables for this model - they do so for seemingly every pair of headphones they've made apart from these ones. This is despite the fact that the cable is detachable and is unique to this model - you can't use anything generic, it has to be Sennheiser's own, and it has to be for the 2.30. Customer service didn't even know which pair of headphones I was referring to when I spoke to them about this - not even the previous HD 2.10 or 2.20 versions. If you break the cable, you'll have to get the whole thing replaced. Something to consider before buying.
Would personally recommend keeping these for indoor use if you do buy them.
Great to see a no quibble customer service in this day and age.
