The Sennheiser PX 100-IIi headphones are a longtime customer and employee favorite here at Crutchfield. Their simple, lightweight design reminds me fondly of the headphones I wore everywhere back in high school. But unlike those flimsy "foamies" that distorted my Wu-Tang, Nas, and Nirvana mixtapes, these PX 100-IIi headphones have substance. They deliver surprisingly spacious, hard-hitting sound with the Spotify playlists on my phone — many featuring the same artists I was listening to back then. (You are who you are, I guess.)
Great sound for the price. Unbelievable

Great sound for the price. Unbelievable
Pros: Sound quality for price point.
Very good sound for a reasonable price. Good stereo imaging.
Needed over ear phones to listen to music on my iPhone at the gym because in-ear buds never stay put when working out. Would never have spent the full price for that purpose, but at the sale price it was worth a try. For starters, they fit well, are comfortable and stay in place. As for sound, they are fantastic and one can see why the high original price. But at the sale price, you will not find anything else that sounds even remotely as good as these. As soon as more became available I got another set for my wife. Both of us like the fact that we can still hear what's going on around us, so the only caveat would be if it's important to not be able to hear your surroundings, these are not for you. Some have complained about lack of bass but not being into hip hop, it's not an issue for us. Outstanding clarity with very well balanced highs, mids and lows.
I wanted to switch from ear buds to headphones for when I sleep. I have owned Sennheiser headphones for years and have always been impressed with the sound quality. These are a good size to wear in bed and the sound quality is great. I'm glad I got these at a great price too.
Lightweight, comfortable, excellent sound, good bass and separation.
Love these great sound for a low price.
Based on the Crutchfield reviews, I purchased these Sennheiser heardphones to replace the standard Apple earbuds. So far I'm impressed,; they are lightweight and produce a good sound, and the price was right. Hopefully they're durable but like anything else if you take care of it, there's no reason it shouldn't last. So far I'm happy with this purchase.
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, produce good sound.
We purchased a dozen of these for exhibit firm training station. Tests have gone well, we will use them live in April. So far so good, happy with price point and we like the Sennheiser brand.
Great sound from these classic 'foamies' - perfect for listening to the Classic Rewind channel on SiriusXM!
Pros: Awesome Sennheiser product.
Cons: None, just enjoy!
Perform beautifully and sound great. Only thing keep it from 5 stars is the quality, I am hoping the headphone is stronger than it looks.
Pros: Sound great
Excellent sound across the board for this lightweight and low profile set of headphones. This is not audiophile sound nor a tremendous spatial 3d soundfield, but that's not what I expected. If you want a lightweight portable set of headphones that sound great, then this is your set. Because they are "on ear" there is some sound leakage so not great at higher volumes for flights or sitting near others.
Pros: Very good sound Lightweight Portable
Cons: a little pricey for what you get
These are wonderful headphones. I had an older headset and the foam padding is disintegrating. These are better made and the sound is superior. I really think this set is a huge improvement over my 100s.
Pros: Well made, bass and treble are clear. Easy to use and store.
Overall great sounding, with a few reservations. Like the way these phones sound. Especially the open concept. If you are looking for noise canceling headphones these are not for you. Super comfortable. Although, have not used them at the gym yet. But I think they may not fit as sung as I would like with a robust workout.
Pros: Sound, comfortable
Cons: Could be a little tighter fit for gym use.
Good sound quality. but feels fragile and too small. The pads don't cover my ears completely, so i can clearly hear surrounding noise. Not sure if its me, or the audio - felt a bit of headache after few min of use.
Pros: Sound quality
Cons: Too small for ears Partially cover ears, hear surrounding noiseCrutchfield response on 1/23/2018 Dex, we're sorry you're disappointed with your headphones.

Great sound for a reasonable price.
This is my first time buying this brand. The positive reviews and the incredible savings made my decision to purchase these earphones that much easier. These earphones sound gr8!
Pros: Price and sound.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Very lightweight and comfortable, sound is very good. Very happy.
Great headphones at a very reasonable price. Works great with the Apple Products.
The best headphones at this price level.
Pros: Lightweigt,comfortable,good sound,earpad's easily replaced.
Cons: lacking a little bass
Haven't had them long, but they seem like a great bang for the buck. The sound is great for this style of headphone. As I prefer over-ear phones, I use these running, and they are perfect - lightweight, good sound, good bass response, etc. And the volume/call control and fact that they fold up are extra bonuses.
Sound is great. I wanted them for air travel so the compact size is perfect and the plane noise is not a problem.
Pros: Size and sound
Cons: None so far
Great sounding, full bass, and comfortable. Easy to fold and store in free pouch. My fifth set of Sennheiser headphones, and I've never been disappointed.
Pros: Sound, lightweight, comfortable, price
Got the Sennheiser for a gift and Love them. The sound quality is excellent. They are light weight and portable.
Sennheiser has a legendary name in the headphone line but it is my first pair and they live up to their reputation. I was astounded at the sound quality from when switching from a pair of Apple ear buds.The bass response was much more powerful but it was the fullness of the sound that is really appreciated. Comfort level with the padded bar and foam earpieces is great too.
Great sound and extremely comfortable. Use them to listen to music and talk on the phone. Fantastic sale price
Pros: Sound, comfort
I love the sound for the money. I use it while working on my laptop and the on ear design works best so I can hear the phone etc. But the sound is great for a on the ear headset.
Using on a Hi Res Sony. The range of sound is great. Work best in a stationary position such as office or relaxing. Could be a little tighter when wearing. Over all glad I purchased them.
Light weight with great sound
Fantastic sound for fairly inexpensive headphones, especially when they are on SALE! Thanks, Crutchfield!
Hard to beat for portable earphones. I've kept various iterations of the Sennheiser PX100s in my car's glove box for 15 years or so. I use iPods, mainly the nano, to store and listen to books from Audible.com, and they're perfect for waiting in doctor's and dentist's office's since they're easily folded up for carrying around. This version controls the iPod volume and playback stop and start without having to remove the iPod from your pocket or where ever you have it stored.
Pros: open backed so you can still hear your name being called
Cons: none from my point of view
Great sounding headphones, light, portable, easy to drive.
Pros: Good bass Light weight Quality
I gave these to my brother for Christmas & he absolutely loved them! I got the Bose ones for myself & couldn't hear much difference between them. Both were excellent but i was most amazed by the Sennheisers sound quality. Great choice!
Grandkids love them! Good sound, space saving design and light weight make these a perfect gift.
Pros: Design, sound, and quality
I love these headphones... and I own a half dozen different sets and sizes of headphones. The PX100-ii-i has a fantastic FLAT sonic profile, so if you're used to the hyped highs of, say, Sony headphones these will sound soft on the high end. But the warmth is generous with the low end and mids and presents a balanced sound. The open nature of the earcups make them indispensable for my daily NYC commute and for walking about the city; delivering great sound while not totally blocking the outside world. And they are fantastic for gabbing on the phone in a noisy urban environment. The caveat is that they are DELICATE in their construction. Also, the wire tends to easily catch onto passing protrusions such as handrails and doorknobs, so they are prone to destruction by being suddenly yanked.
Pros: Balanced, warm sound. Open earcup, so you can still hear oncoming speeding buses.
Cons: Delicate construction. Cord can easily catch and get yanked.
They sound really nice and they are light so I almost forgot I was wearing them a couple times. Also my ears don't get hot like with some closed headphones. Had trouble getting the mic to work on a PS4 but it worked on the iPhone so maybe there was just something wrong with the playstation.
LIGHTWEIGHT VERY COMFORTABLE SUPERIOR SOUND AND MULTIPLE USES--CANNOT ASK FOR MORE -THE SENNHEISER NAME ENSURES THE VERY BEST. HOW GREAT IS THAT!!!
Very happy with these so far: lightweight, comfortable, and good sound. I much prefer the on-the-ear design to in-ear headphones which always manage to fall out or feel uncomfortable. Of course the quality doesn't match that of expensive, high-end phones but it perfectly adequate. The foldability is a big plus too although on a crowded NYC subway train they are a little more cumbersome to unfold than a compact pair of earbuds. Also they don't offer any external noise reduction (again that noisy train) but I wasn't expecting that. Bought them on sale so very happy with the value!
Pros: lightweight, comfortable, good sound, portable, great value, good for phone use
Cons: Fiddly to unfold No external noise reduction Not audiophile
Love it! Great price on sale.
It a great headphone; comfortable, you don't even notice that you're wearing it. The sound reproduction is very clear. This is my second set and I highly recommend it.
Pros: Light, comfortable to use and the sound is astounding.

Incredible sale! [ Joseph Feb 04, 2018 ]
I've used these folding headphones since they were the original PX100 with a wire to both ear cups. My old ones were getting beat up. I carry a set, always, in the glove compartment of my car and keep another at home.This is the best price I've seen in years. The last one I bought before this model cost me $75 from Amazon. I listen to Audible books on an iPod nano. This is my 6th pair [ AtlantaJim Jan 18, 2018 ]

Light weight, thin, over the ear (v. earbuds which fall out) and foldable (for the gym). [ John Dec 29, 2017 ]
I had a pair of Sennheiser before that was shipped with an order once as a special offer. I really liked them even though they were not the super high end ones. They worked and sounded great. Only reason I no longer have them was because my cat chewed through the cord making them no longer usable. I had to have another pair and waited for a good deal. [ Keith Dec 23, 2017 ]

Versatile, lightweight headphone at a best price. Planned uses: mobile calls/video in office/home/coffee shops in lieu of standard earbuds. Anticipate somewhat improved clarity, isolation and comfort relative to earbuds. Bonus if my music/streaming sounds good! [ Jeff Dec 08, 2017 ]
Experience with earlier version of these earphones. I carry a set in my car at all times so I can listen to books when I have to sit and wait at dentist, doctor, anywhere. My iPod nano with books loaded is always with me. [ AtlantaJim Dec 07, 2017 ]
