    Just a word of warning. There are a LOT of fake Sennheiser's out there (google it!)

    Last Christmas, i bought some from a Amazon seller. Please note, not Amazon but one of the people who sell through it. and they were FAKE! It took a lot of time and hassle to get my money back. Personally, for the sake of a few pounds, i would buy from a big company.

    So I'll probably just get these Sennheisers, can some one point me out to a credible dealer though please? This talk of fake ones has made me doubt my decision to buy just from Amazon so.

    Hey,

    Dont get me wrong, Amazon themselvs are fine, i just had a problem when buying from one of their sellers

    I can also recommend Klipsch and ultimate ears. Koss also do a decent cheepo (ie under £10) pair

    I would check out the bigger stores like HMV etc or have a look at this place

    I personally havent used them but they seem to be ok.

    Hey,

    I have these! They are ok. the bass is ok for the price but comply foam tips really do help.

    I dont know if they work with the iphone 4 (you could ask at the apple store) but they work really well with my iphone 3. They do take a little getting use but, especially with the foam tips, they are comfortable.

    All iPhones and iPods have the same 3.5mm jack . They can all take the same remotes and microphones.

    Personally I can't fault my Sony ones from Tescos. Brilliant Sound quality and Bass level. And they were only £25 - £30. Can't remember the model number atm though ill update when/if I find it.

    Turns out I've been harassing the wrong supplier for the headphones, when I double checked it was Lime Paint not stipstarlive, ooops.

    BTW Purchased for £49.99 VS £89.99 retail, love a bargain, but only time will tell when i possibly have to pay return postage!:jawdrop:

    If you're still open to suggestions, the Koss Portapro and KSC75 both sound better than the CX300 II..

    Right now I'm slightly fed up with headphones, I'm still waiting on feedback about my broken Sony ones that died on the first day, as for the Sennheisers I'm waiting on a refund I was meant to get but still not seeing any return money.

    I sometimes hate being a student, not having all the time in the world to chase up on a bunch of thieves.
