For the office, I needed cheap headphones that were very comfortable to wear, open to outside noises so I could hear someone speak to me, not be too large so as to leave the hair around my ears and on top of my head flat, and quickly put on to use. My IEMs/ear canal phones took too long to insert for a good seal and they isolated too well. My full-size headphones ruined my hair style just before going into meetings. That's where these came in.

When it comes to budget (under $50) portable headphones, the usual suspects are the Sennheiser PX100-II and Koss PortaPro.

Unlike the above two, I could barely find any reviews of the PX90s. Simply looking at the Amazon customer reviews, this model only has 6 while the PX100-II have about 143 and the PortaPro have over 1000 reviews. It is no understatement to say the P90s are unappreciated.

Sennheiser has a reputation for making headphones with a sound signature that is dark (some say warm). It also makes headphones in series like the PX or HD where as the number goes higher, so does the MSRP and supposedly the sound. Surprisingly, this is not the case with the PX90s. I think they sound better than the PX100-II and the PX200-II despite being cheaper at their $40 msrp. I got mine for $20 which make them even better for me since this made them $30 cheaper than the PX-100 as of this date.

The PX90s have a balanced, laid-back sound that is on the warm side. As a comparison, I think the Beyerdynamic DT880-600s and Shure SRH840 have a neutral sound but of course they're full-size headphones costing much more. I've been listening to music ranging from jazz, house, post-britpop (Coldplay, Radiohead), and reggae. I think the bass and mids sound great, and the treble very smooth without sounding harsh or metallic.

This is my review for the Sennheiser PX 90 headphones recently purchased. I respect Sennheiser quality and have used this brand for years, but I also realize that, as with most brands, there are some losers especially in their low-end line of products. The Sennheiser PX 90's don't seem to be of this category. These are very well made and stylish looking headphones that are not only attractive but quite functional. I bought these to use with a new laptop computer for listening to music and movies and the like. A lot of people use earbuds for this, but I have always preferred over the ear headphones for a number of reasons, chief among these is the shape of my ear canal makes for a difficult fit with earbuds. I also own the Sennheiser PX 100ii that I use for my ipod. In comparing the two headphones, I will say that the sound I get from the advanced technology built into the Sennheiser PX 100ii is superior owing to the fact that it has a far greater frequency response and signal to noise ratio than the (earlier developed) Sennheiser PX 90's. The PX 90's have a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20,000 kHz, whereas the PX 100ii's have a broader, deeper, richer frequency range of 15 Hz to 27,000 kHz which is just beyond the range of most human hearing. I'm not an audiophile, but I can tell you this. You may not be able to hear this entire range, but brother you can sure FEEL it! This is the main reason I rated the PX 90's less than 5 stars. So, why did I also get the lesser sounding PX 90's? They are actually better made than later models, so in theory, they should hold up longer and even if the frequency response is lesser it is still way beyond what a lot of other brand name headphones can handle. It also cost less than the Sennheiser PX 100ii cost.Read more ›

These headphones sound really really great for the price. Almost good enough to be an "only headphone" if you're on a budget or travelling. Sound is rather "Sennheiser-y", warm and smooth with solid bass response. Treble and mids are there, but you're not conked over the head by them. Overall, very listenable and enjoyable.

The main gripe I have (and I imagine this is the case with 99% of affordable headphones) is durability. The cable housing split after about a week and I had to blob some hot glue on it to prevent further damage. I'm willing to accept that for $25 headphones.

As a basis for comparison, I own Grado SR225s, Bayerdynamic dt 990 pro, dt770 and Etymotic ER-4S headphones and have owned Sennheiser HD 600, px100 and a few others.

EDIT: Just realized the price went up to $40... still very good headphones, but I'm taking away one star for that (5 -> 4)

I used these everyday since I've got them.They clamp on your head so, they can get a bit uncomfortable after long periods of use.Because they clamp on they are very hard to shake off,good for exercising and running.Blocks out a decent amount of outside noise.Bass,I only notice it when playing music on high volume.Volume is low and I find myself maximizing the volume.Might be a good idea to pair these with an amp.Overall,I really like these headphones.Will buy a second pair in the future.

First off,

These are very portable headphones. They fold up sort of so they can sit flat in your bag or wherever. Great for wearing under your beanie or Knit cap for the winter. That's why I got them originally.

First impression of Sounds. Actually sound pretty damn good.

First two song I heard on them Strangehold by Ted Nugent and Back in the Saddle Aerosmith, on the radio, sounded damn good.

Very good bass for smaller headphones. Very clear--- good highs and mids. Bass will really surprise you.

They do leak a little and do not isolate that much.
