Sennheiser are very well known for their professional and industry standard headphones throughout the world, so when I get the wee looking PX100-IIi headphones for review, I was very intrigued indeed. My first reaction was that these puny sized foldable headphones designed for the iPhone and iPod won’t be anywhere near the quality of Sennheiser’s bigger (regular sized) headphones. Sometimes I do like it when I’m proven wrong.

Straight out of the box, the Sennheiser PX100-IIi look, and are, designed for extreme portability. The ear cups turn out (to the edges) and fold inwards in a very small and compact form. The included pouch obviously helps in taking care of these preciously delicate looking headphones. Contrary to its appearance, the PX100-IIi are pretty sturdy. The foldable bits have hard plastic for the outer edge and an aluminum lining on the inside to keeps things steady. On the inside of the headband are soft leather pads; sadly the ear cups themselves are covered with regular padding material.

The in-line remote control looks very sleek, with its three buttons; plus & minus for volume control, and center button to forward tracks or to receive & end calls. The built-in mic is pretty good for both recording voice memos as well as making calls. Nothing spectacular, but everybody I called said they heard me loud and clear. I guess we’ll just have to take their word for it. Of course, shoddy reception will always interfere no matter how good your mic is, so your mileage may vary.
