Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable fit Not so good at cancelling out external noise, but clarity excellent, and unbeatable for the price. 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product impressive high quality sound from my music player. comfortable in ear & excellent value for money. 30 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great headphones. Good price. Great all rounders nothing fancy. All i wanted was just a basic pair of headphones and these are great. Can't go wrong for this price. 01 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent sound quality and good value for money :). I would recommend this to all. 16 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Don't work properly with Samsung S3 Bought these for my Samsung S3. For that purpose, they don't work as the sound only comes out of one ear when plugged into the phone. I thought smart phones used universal jack? They work fine on my laptop though and they have the best sound quality of any in-ear earphones I've had. Pure sounds and lovely rich base. 08 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing sound, great value Picked up a pair from the Brent Cross store yesterday. Impressive sound quality for the low asking price. Light and comfortable. The two year parts and labour warranty engenders confidence in the product. 17 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 What great value for money! I struggle with earphones -- the bud types just don't work for me. However, these Sennheiser MX170s fit me perfectly, without having to use the supplied foam pads. The style is very much like the old Apple iPhone headphones, and sit/rest in your ears, rather than having to push them in -- nice and comfy. The best bit though is the sound quality: I really can't believe the sound from a pair of headphones costing so little! The bass quality is really good, as is the sound stage and top-end. They work really well with my Samsung Galaxy S2 'phone -- plenty of volume to spare. My only regret is that I didn't find these first, before I'd bought a more expensive earbud set, in the vain hope that they'd fit me. Buy with confidence. Nice one, JL! 02 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just brilliant! Collected these today via click and collect. I've just tried them out and they have amazing sound with good bass. True Sennheiser quality, especially for this price! 15 April 2013
