Good Midrange
Bass Too Low
Treble Too Much
Best Uses
The treble can be almost harsh at times with fingers moving on strings or the s at the end in lyrics accentuated. The bass is dimished. I found on my iphone using the treble reducer setting I liked them overall.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

Excellent Headsets for the Price
Best Uses
Great for the gym
I use the Sennheiser CX 215 primarily when working out at the gym. The ear-insert headsets are small and very unobrusive. The sound is crisp and clear for treble, bass and midrange, though not a boomy bass if that is what you are looking for. I also found that these headsets sound better, sharper and more defined, after they are broken in for awhile. I bought these to replace an excellent pair of Vmoda Vibes (no longer made) that I had used for many years, but finally died on me. The price of the CX 215s are very reasonable for the sound quality they provide.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
