Summary: Though the ultra-affordable Sennheiser HD 201 headphones provide natural sound and capable performance, commuters may find the low volume output an issue when listening to music in highly trafficked environments.
Pros: The Sennheiser HD 201 headphones are very comfortable to wear, and the tough construction will last over long-term use. Noise leakage is at a minimum, and the overall sound is balanced as well.
Cons: The HD 201 headphones' cable may be too long for portable use, and the set doesn't come with a protective pouch for storage. Natural bass is lacking, and the maximum volume output is lower than most aftermarket headphones in its category.
Listen to a Good Movie ... Without Disturbing Others
30 December 2010
Excerpt: My family and I don't always see eye-to-eye on movies that we'd like to watch. Of course, being the only male in an estrogen-infused home doesn't help. Sometimes I want to see a good-ol' shoot-em-up movie but I know that the rest of the clan do not share my same desire.
Summary: I bought these as a cheap spare during repairs of my regular cans, didn't expect much but have had some good experiences with Sennheiser.
I was very positively surprised at first use. These actually sound like they reproduce sound as intended in production. And at a silly low price.
Pros: Balanced sound, can be used for mixing, competing with far more expensive pro headphones. long cord is good at home / In studio
Cons: Ugly, Cheap looking, plasticky, long cord is annoing in portable use.
Summary: I should probabally preface this review by stating that I am by no means an audiophile, however I appreciate good, accurate sound replication. I had only had experience with low end Samsung, LG and sony iem earbuds before purchasing these but I was eager to improve my music listening experience with...
Pros: Strong mids, long cable, great price, durable, included 1/4 inch adapter
Cons: Weak bass and highs, no case, pads cheap-feeling, poor isolation and seal against head
Summary: Hello all,
This review is written from the perspective of somebody who has spent a lot of time looking for good, cheap, cans - and I've used these good, cheap, cans for 5 years now. I've owned cheap IEMs, Over-ears, On-ears, Earpods, and speakers.
Pros: Balanced sound, no immediately apparent weaknesses, lightweight, reasonably musical.
Cons: Somewhat easy to break, slightly recessed bass, not as comfortable as they could be.
Summary: This is going to be a short review.
-When I took them out of the box they felt like crap, like the smallest amount of pressure would snap the headband in two or more pieces.
-Upon first wearing they weren't nearly as tight or sweat inducing as the Skullcandy T.I.'s I had at the time.
Pros: Cheap, kind of comfortable, good "soundstaging?"
Cons: Bass is at a negative level, incredibly cheap materials
