My Sennheiser's just arrived last night. Sound is very good. Noise canceling is very good (even better than the Sony's, when plugged into my laptop, I used to get feedback - 60 cycle hum when the laptop was plugged in, not a problem with the Sennheiser's). I wish the cord was a bit longer. They fold up very compactly (excellent! very nice, good for traveling, comes with soft travel case), feel very nice on my ears & head (very light).

Only issues:

(1) the folding mechanism where the ear piece pivots to fold up makes it a bit tricky to initially position on the ear (this is an "on-the-ear" headphone rater than cover the ear style);

(2) the cord transmits noise, if you're not careful in positioning the cords when putting on the headphones (once I figured this out, it was not a problem).

Next test, flight out to WWDC next week.

Thanks all for your advice.
