Sennheiser HD 201

CNET
7 April 2011
  • 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

Examiner
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

  • 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: Well, this is a product that gets a lot of praising and some bashing as well, so let's start by the obvious: they cost U$S 29, and can be found for U$S 20. They are really affordable.
  • Pros: Clear and very defined sound, good separation, good isolation, very light, decent comfort, plus a courtesy gold-coated 6.5mm adaptor.
  • Cons: Relatively fragile, lacks punch, low portability, somewhat unforgiving with bad recordings.

  • 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
