Order/Delivery etc all good.
Now the headphones.
Slipping them on after charged in a noisy a/c workshop, the background noise just melted away to a very very soft ssssshhhhhh. Huh, where did the sound go! Tried again and again as unbelievable. Not the ultimate but very very good.
Paired blue tooth and operation was easy, and very very quick to pair in future. With head sense active turn right cup to normal position place on head and by then they have turned on the music player and sound resumes from where you left off. Take off to pause sound. Put back on to play sound. simplezzzzzz.
Note: need to activate head detection in the app as not on by default.
Undecided on a couple of things.
Power switch=none. just twist right ear to normal position its on, twist to store position and its off. Ok it does work and no problems so far. Just need to remember to leave it in the store position when placing down. In the store case it must be placed in the off position.
Residual sssshhh noise is very low, but noticeable. Only when NO audio playing or using talk through mode. Any audio at all and its not detectable.
Maybe it will help sleeping on a plane?
Music sounds not just very good but awesome with APTX (i assume, as no idea how to verify with Samsung S6 but specs say both devices support it) and playback presets are a bit of a gimmick, or are they? The app lets you customise a setting but for default I find that I like the CLUB mode which boosts the bass and adds some sound separation. Ok it is a good addition then.
The headband feels like it is an initial weird position needing to be very forward on the head (cant be changed). This is what takes the most getting used to in this model for me. However after a couple of hours wearing and 2 days on/off it isn't a problem, just get used to it!
I find these are comfortable even for long periods (not as good as the HD598 for sure) but very good. Build quality seems good and understated, marks and highlights make sure you don't standout from the crowd too much. At first I thought thery were a a bit flimsy but think its ok However these guys are so light at about 250grams total weight its easy to forget they are on. Why buy a heavy 800gram pair when these feel like a feather!
The ear cup size is just big enough for me (average size 60yo man i guess) without any slop movement. HD 598 are larger and seem just a little more comfortable but the firm fit mean they are not moving around even with activity.
Overall an excellent product that does meet my expectations in function and performance in every way. Now thats actually incredible.
I haven’t been disappointed with these Sennheisers.
•Very comfortable, even for long periods;
•fold up into a fairly compact size;
•lightweight, but protective case (included);
•great sound (plus the option of optimising to your taste and depending on the audio source - lecture, phone call, movie, music, etc);
•long battery life - I hardly ever have to charge these and I use them a lot (sometimes several hours a day);
•expensive, but in comparison to comparable brands and models, these are worth the money;
•good quality materials and workmanship;
•good noise cancelling feature;
•really easy to use controls on the right ear (tap to stop/start, swipe to change song, swipe up/down to change the volume);
•good bass (but may not be enough for everyone);
•pairs with Bluetooth like a dream;
•doesn’t cut out;
•easy to use for phone calls (I was surprised by this) - the call quality is very good both in receiving audio and in the quality of the microphone and cutting out other noise).
•the volume - most days the volume is sufficient but occasionally I want music to be really loud and these just don’t go super loud.
I highly recommend these to anyone who uses headphones and wants to invest in a wireless model.
I found them to fit perfectly
The noise cancellation is great.
Haven’t had to recharge them in more than a week now and it still shows more than 80% battery available.
The touchy thing to change track, answer calls or increase volume very useful.
I had a couple of phone calls and it worked very well too.
If only my phone could last this long... :)
I've considered... do I need to clean my ears out? Am I just getting old? So I'll persevere for a while and not return these. Perhaps wait until another member of my family busts their headset... which is a regular thing. Then I'm off to a proper Hi-Fi shop to have a listen before I commit again or maybe in the meantime these will start sounding better to me.... but I doubt it.
