I have had MX470 for a month now, so my review will be based on the comparison between MX470 and MX471.

Form-
1 471 has better wires, at least one class higher than 470's. They appear to be very durable, and create no micro-phobics at all.
2 The housing of 417 is rounder and bigger, but the size of its driver covering is actually smaller than 470.
3 471 only comes with one pair of rubber earphone sleeves. 470 had an additional bigger pair (although I had no use of it).
4 Two pairs of ear foams are included.
5 One dard red (matching 471's housing color) pouch is included in the package. 470 came with a black one instead.
6 Color and pattern printed on the housing are not as bright as shown in stock pictures. Although it is "designed for ladies", it can be defined as a unisex product.
7 Cable length of 471 seems to be equal to that of 470.
8 471 is built with a better Y splitter, stronger and easier to use than 470. The separator has model number printed, while 470 has a smaller one without model number.

Function-
1 471's sound quality is every bit as good as 470. Both of them clearly surpass my veteran MX400/500.
2 Because I also have MX560/660 at home for portable use, I think I like the sound signature of new models better.
3 Although no significant difference can be heard between 470 and 471, 471 is very slightly darker. This could be because it is positioned deeper in my ears due to its smaller driver coverings.
4 Both 470 and 471 is very comfortable. But personally, I prefer 470 over 471. I tried both with their slim rubber sleeves and foams on.

Looking at the current Sennheiser consumer grade earphone product line, it appears to me that MX580/581 are just MX470/471 with built-in volume control.

Not very comfortable didnt last very long. Not real impressed. But they sounded great while they lasted. Sadly that was only about 6 months. Not worth the money over the dirt cheap earbuds.

I'm a longtime Sennheiser customer; I have both their audio headphones and several pairs of PC headphones. These earbuds aren't up to the quality of the headphones, but of course the earbuds were a lot cheaper. I would say they sound is slightly better than the Apple earbuds that shipped with my iPod.

The fit is not what I had hoped for. I was really looking for something to hang in my ears, like the Apple, without filling the ear canal. But by the time I got the foam covers on, the earbuds fill my ear canal. It's not quite as tight/bad as a silicone insert (which I have on other earbuds), but it's definitely not the comfort I was hoping for.

A final note: the packaging is VERY frustrating. Unlike the Apple, these earbuds have hard edges and are not usable without a cover. The rubber cover makes them too big. And the foam covers were squashed flat in packaging, and it was quite difficult to get them on. And they don't STAY on.

Summary: good sound for the money, but frustrating to set up and not as comfortable as I was hoping for.

After a LONG search for a new pair of headphones that I could wear at work while hammering out code on my computer, I finally decided upon the Sennheiser MX 471. The most important thing to say about these headphones: They sounds GREAT. I use an expensive pair of noise-cancelling headphones at home, the sound of these is close to that (although, these are not noise cancelling head phones. They have a sound clarity on-par with the in-ear style headphones, while being far more comfortable. After I put these in, I can hardly feel them. Still, they stay securely in place...I don't have to fidget with them or adjust them constantly.

Another reviewer had mentioned that they look as though they are marketed to women, with the color and style. I personally don't see that, I'm a guy and I really like the color and style. I don't know if that's my feminine side speaking, but I just wanted to add that as it's not a good reason to pass these headphones by.

For the price, the quality and the sound, I feel like I got an incredible deal on headphones, like I got a pair of 50 dollar headphones for less than half that price.

Great product, I fully recommend it.

Fantastic sound quality for this price range. Very well built I am still using them to this day and I bought them almost 3 years ago and I use them everyday when I sleep, class and just random times. Yea they are not BOSE but honestly if you are like me and cant justify spending more than $20 for headphones then get these.
Edit: OK I see that they are $54 right now and I did not know that they cost that much! because when I bought them they were around $15 to $20 so I got really lucky I guess. I would wait till they go on sale though $50 for headphones is not what what I would have paid for, ever.

Well they at least reproduce sound, which is good, but they fall out of my ears constantly. When they do stay in my ear for more than 30 seconds I am quite happy with the way the sound is reproduced. Nice bass and clean through the mids. But if they wont stay in my ears what is the point?
