Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied customer comfortable to wear. Good sound quality and a reasonable price 26 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Running headphones Can't be doing with headphones that clip round the back of your tabs, and so opted for these after getting irritated by an old pair that kept falling out whilst exercising. First time I have tried this brand, mainly because of their usual high price, but was pleased to see them offer a product in my limited budget! The sound is significantly better than my old Panasonic or Philips headphones. I can hear so much more of the music, plus these have a better bass range. I have ended up keeping the volume lower as a result and avoid premature deafness too. Just make sure you're aware of your surroundings whilst wearing them as they really do block out almost all background noise with their snug fit. 25 November 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by great headphones Great headphones good sound quality comfy earpieces and good wire length a great buy 18 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I lost my CX150s and was looking to buy them again, as I was using this model for many years and was highly satisfied with it. The closest what I could find within that price range was CX160s, so I decided to give them a shot. I definetely don't regret the purchase. 160s are just as good as 150s, the sound quality is very high and low frequencies sound very deep and punchy. You don't get such quality in this price range too often. Some people in their reviews complained about unwanted noises transported along the cable when it dangles and hits something on its way, for instance when you move/run. Yes, if you're looking for a pair of headphones to take to a gym or for a jog, it may be an issue (maybe just hide the cable under your shirt), however I have no problems coping with that effect. And yes, cables do tangle a bit if you put them in your pocket. Cables are known to tangle, it shouldn't be a surprise. The earbuds sit firmly in my ear, and the replacement rubber elements help you adjust the headphones to your own ear size. Just as CX150s, I can fully recommend Sennheiser CX160 headphones - they are reliable, relatively cheap and they produce great quality sound. 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good in ear headphones Good sound quality and in ear fit. No cable adjustment 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Sound Bought these for my Sony Walkman MP3 as one of the Sony ear pieces had stopped working. I was amazed at the improvement in sound quality over the Sony, excellent. The extra ear pieces were not required as the ones fitted were perfectly comfortable for me. I can lie on my side in bed and fall asleep without them becoming uncomfortable. Highly recommended for the price. 10 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good headphones are a must They are comfortable, the sound is good and the wires don't keep getting tangled. 08 April 2015
