I understand these come with a 6' cord instead of the normal 10'.  A steal @ $199, I picked up a pair.

 I think the Sennheiser is a good choice in many cases.The Senn signature sound is altogether different from say the Grado house sound. For those reasons, it becomes a matter of preference for each of us, and maybe for different reasons. My experience and preference has changed simply due to personal and even health reasons. More specifically, I have had a drop in hearing due to a recent set of infusions of antibiotics. The result was positive, save for the damage to my hearing. At my age of 60, there has already been a marked difference in hearing, and so that has shaped my decisions in audio.

  I say enjoy all that you can with products like Sennheiser and even better phones out there for as long as you can.

I have a pair of these and really enjoy them but not as much as some of the other cans I've moved onto since. At any rate, you really can't beat them on price for value!

I bought an aftermarket Neotech cable w/ good terminations. This really improved the bass response and dark sound of the headphones. Since I rarely listen to headphones, this combination serves me well.

I listen to my Pixel 2 w/ Xtreme USB Audio app - Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt - Etymotic ER3XR combination a lot more with my travel. The USB Audio app is great for those streaming with Android system phones. The Etymotic ER3XR's are a great sounding IEM for under $200/pr.

HockessinKid, have you been comparing them with Sony as alternative? By the way, here is a great list of headphone amps - ( url: https://theguruchoice.com/amplifiers/best-headphone-amplifier-under-200/ ) of different manufacturers, and the best I've got there is Audioengine D1. It has worked for 1 year already, and works pefectly.
