Summary: This is my first headphone, I bought it almost 2 years ago for $24. For the price, this is the best balanced headphone you can get under $50.
It's well built, but the cables is quite long (~3m) and sometime tangled. I don't like the plethered pads, it gets my ears sweaty.
Pros: Balanced sound, cheap, long cables (3m), well built, thick cable, 2 years warranty
Cons: Pleathered pads make your ears sweaty, uncomfortable after 90', long cable may be frustated, not portable
Summary: The Sennheiser HD201 are a surprise in the lower echolon of headphones, as they offer great sound quality for a very low price and they are a very good extention into the low end price range for the Sennheiser product sortiment, in that regards
However, because of the cheap price, they do lack in...
Pros: Excellent value, good clearity, solid build quality (for a 20$ headphone), right amount of bass, not inconsencities in sound signature
Cons: Fatigueing because it's overly bright, earpads are uncomfortable, lack of sound stage, may sound 'plasticy' with some genres of music, thin cable
Summary: Nothing much to say about these. You get a huge bang for your buck in sound quality, but build quality is what you'd expect from <$50 cans. They are by no means audiophile cans. Although, for the general masses, I would recommend them no questions asked if they are looking for budget headphones.
Summary: I really cannot understand what market is this headphone targeted for. For all I know, this headphone needs power.
If I plug this headphone to a normal portable player (no head amp), it can sound bass-less and dead because of inadequate power.
Pros: Sound amazing when driven by a decent amp.
Cons: Who will drive a $30 headphone with a decent amp?
Summary: I am using the HD 201 for over two years and in terms of sound quality/characteristics I’m quite pleased with it. Just recently I listened to a good recording of Bach’s choral BWV 115 played on a Silbermann organ. My jaw dropped. The HD 201 sounded so well it’s hard to justify an upgrade.
Pros: Amazing value for the price. Suitable for pop, rock and even classical.
Cons: False leather on the ear and head cushions starts to dissolve within the first 10 weeks of use. Too long cable.
Pros: Gerade mal 165 Gramm wiegt der HD 201 und dabei wirkt der Kopfhörer sehr robust gebaut und nicht unbedingt klein. Besonders die Ohrpolster fallen recht groß aus und bieten eine sehr gute Abschirmung gegen Geräusche von außen., Zudem erhält man durch das 3 Meter lange Kabel sehr viel Spielraum in ...
