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.

  • Pros: Crystal clear sound, bang for the buck, comfort.

  • 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

  • Summary: I have to say this, these are one of the worst headphones I have ever had.   To start the comfort is horrible. I have long hair, curly so it all bundles together. Older headphones slid through my hair, these grab every single lock and tear it off my skull.
  • Pros: Cheap, over ear, cord length
  • Cons: Sound, cord, fit, size, material, plug, adjustable

  • Summary: I don't actually own these headphones, but funny thing is they are actually part of my schools media art computer lab for each computer. My teacher allows us to do anything we want during this class while working on projects or assignments, so this means listening to music in class with these.
  • Pros: Plenty of detail, decent soundstaging, Dark sound signature that offers little to no edge, smooth, balanced bass response
  • Cons: somewhat honky, colored sound, unrealistic sound, somewhat veiled, lacks some air, muddiness at times

  • Summary: I almost buy in blind the hd280 but when i tryed it in the store, i hear clearly that the HD280 in the spectrum was sub bass heavy at 30-40hz , a dip in 200hz, and a piercing peak at 2.3khz to 3.5khz, then another dip in 5khz , so it was hard for me to listen and feel it flat, i try my best to like...
  • Pros: very well balanced across all the spectrum, flat and natural
  • Cons: short soundstage and not too detailed, but good overall
