Product Description Product Description

Advances in technology have increased battery life and storage capacity resulting in users listening with headphones at loud decibels for prolonged periods of time. Headphone users' listening habits have audiologists alarmed. Younger people are exhibiting hearing loss normally found in older adults.The Open Aire, dynamic PMX 60 neckband headphones are the ideal choice for all portable audio sources. Lightweight, comfortable design provides for listening on the go. Their balanced sound image easily out performs other mini headphones. Ultra-efficient drivers deliver maximum performance with all portable audio devices and this is ideal for all mobile audio sources such as MP3 players or portable CD players.


Sennheiser's lightweight, open-ear PMX60s are tailor-made for portable listening and specifically designed for rock and pop music, with a high maximum playback level (122 dB SPL), low distortion (under .5 percent), and a dedicated bass tube to heighten musical impact through additional low-frequency resonance. (Keep in mind that even though the headphones perform at loud levels, your ears will surely deteriorate through extended loud listening.) The PMX60s' comfy neckband design prevents the dreaded "headphone hair," and their three-foot cord grants extended freedom of movement.

Great sound.. for others as well July 17 2003
By Ari Oppenheimer - Published on
I bought these headphones after being totally dis-satisfied with the Sennheiser MX300 earbuds. These are very uncomfortable and sound too bright in my opinion.
I went out and bought the Sennheiser PMX60's. These were perfect as I cycle and need something that doesn't go on the top of the head.
As sound quailty goes, these things are amazing! Beautiful, strong bass and crisp highs. The volume even goes very high compared to other headphones. Well done Sennheiser!
The reason why I am returning these, is because although they are one of the best sounding headphones I have ever heard, they leak WAY too much sound. Anyone in the same room can here the music that I'm playing quite well. Every word is audible to the outside listener. For me this makes then very unattractive.
I'm sad to part with these as they sound so good, but I need something a bit quiter to the public.

Simply amazing July 13 2004
By Dmg - Published on
These headphones are amazing. The price is extremely low for the quality of these headphones.
They're extremely comfortable; the most comfortable headphones of any style I've ever worn. Being a huge audiophile, I'm picky about my headphones, and these have beautiful clarity. The range is great as well, the highs are perfect. The mids and lows are right on as well. As for breaking them in, the bass will only get better with time, so that's even better.
Sennheiser PMX60s get LOUD! If you have hardware that can push it, these can bring you to ear drum shattering range and still sound crystal clear. The are only two downsides. These are open headphones, so people around you can definetly hear your music as well. But if you're getting open headphones, that's obvious.Also, the cord is kind of short, but it works for me.
The headphones are stylish, light, and very well put together too. All together, their sound quality, range, loudness, style, comfort, durability, design, and construction are all topnotch; not to mention the very low price.
These are great! Pick them up now!

Great sound quality, lightweight, and under $25...great deal! Dec 16 2005
By Hey Its That Dude! - Published on
I usually buy behind-the-ear headphones to go with my Ipod because I hate the earplug types, even the overpriced Shure types. Most of the time, I'll buy the Philips HS500 or the Sony MDR-42s for good sound and a cheap price. Finally, I paid $10 more for the Sennheiser PMX60 Headphones and I'm glad I did.

First things first, these headphones can get loud! Every song on my Mp3 player is louder but, the sound quality is still clear. Another thing I noticed was that these headphones are soo much more lighter than the others listed above. Now, I'm not sure about the durability, but so far, so good. The sound quality of the headphones seems to be a big jump from Sony behind-the-ears. The bass isn't as present on these headphones like they were on the Sonys, but I guess thats the trade-in for clear, clear sound.

Overall: May not be suitable for rap music but, sounds great on anything else. 4.5/5

outstanding value for low powered units May 9 2005
By Electronic Nut - Published on
Verified Purchase
Sonic Quality: These phones have a very good, balanced sound that covers the entire range well. Bass was a sufficient but a bit light when first used, but has warmed up quite well after burning in a several hours on my integrated amp. Highs and mids are very clear and sharp. These phones are easily driven by very low powered units (bought this for a 1-AAA powered MP3 player) and reach high volume levels without distortion. Given more power (from my amp) it sounds even better, but the short cord makes this impractical for non-portable sources.

Comfort: Very comfortable, as the phones are very light weight and the band is highly compliant. Stays on my head, even though I wear glasses and the phones have to compete for space on my ears. The open air design helps keep the ears cool.

Value: Outstanding. Worth several times what it is going for on Amazon.

Other issues: Other reviews have commented about the high level of sound leakage, which may bother others. In truth, you have to really play them LOUD for that to happen. At volumes I am comfortable with, external sound does not travel more than a few feet. I do agree that you will not want to use in on airlines, as your seat-mates will hear your music, but you will want closed-ear or noise-reduction phones for that anyway. I also own the PMX-250 for travel, does a great job.

You will also need to burn-in the phones before assessing if the sound suits you. Don't judge based on first impressions.

The cord is indeed about 3 feet, but this seems to be the perfect length for its intended purposes. It suits MP3 players mounted on your arm, belt, or front shirt pocket without undue excess. An extension, if you really need one, is only a few bucks too.

You will not be unhappy with these phones, unless you only like bass or it does not sit well on your head. Personal tastes and shapes. Nothing this light and portable can handle much higher levels of bass anyway.

Good for the gym April 24 2006
By Gregory A. Golden - Published on
I got these headphones about 2 months ago. I use them exclusivly at the gym and running. They are light,comfortable, and stay in place. Sound quality is very good. They are lacking on the lows and highs, but mid-level sounds are very crisp. I keep reading about how bad these cans leak sound. To be honest, they do, but not as bad as other reviewers make it sound. I asked people around me if they cound hear it when I had it at comforable levels, and no one could. If you crank them way up, (on a noisy treadmill for example), people could hear them up to a couple of feet away. But, most people are 3 feet away on the next machine, so no big deal.

Over all... these are the best headphones I have ever used for working out. They sound great
