What impressed me about the Sennheissers was that one reviewer, and I read many, said they looked good when you took them off, like after a satisfying stint with them on. I thought that was a pretty profound way to be thinking about headphones, assuming they sound brilliant of course. Other reviewers said the styling reminded them of seventies cars like the the Austin Princess, but I thought that was a bit mean. I like the seventies styling, like I like Wheeler Dealers and old cars in general. Cream leather could be just the thing. Meanwhile, these are certainly headphones designed never to annoy anyone on the bus, with a chunky 6.3mm traditional jack and 3m cable, they say you're staying at home. Others said they were the most comfortable phones you could buy, with no other faults, so that finally did it for me.
I wait eagerly for the postman.
