Excerpt: You really just can't beat the price on these. They are by no means the best in any category, and cannot be compared to more expensive models, but if you need a cheap, descent set of over-ear headphones that you don't want to worry about when they break, then why not. At this price they are practicaly disposable. I use them with my computer, iPhone, when recording music with my Apogee mic. Someday I will spring for an expensive pair, but I'm good with these for now.
Excerpt: i think i paid [$] for these a while back, it was cheaper than <[@], which had them still for [$] then, overall good for price & studio, for me though the chords to long, that has its pros and cons, but not an iPod-traveler, its bulky but lightweight and quite comfortable... the sound was not so good on mine though. id recommend to a casual user..
Excerpt: Lights dim, curtain going up, the performance begins with whispers on stage. I hear them clearly. The music begins, wolf calls at first followed by percussion, the different sounds are clearly defined. 75 minutes later, the performance ends and i start packing up the gear. Have to be careful where the headphones go, wear and tare does n't look to be very promising, but for the price am very satisfied with all the goods and willing to take care about the yikes.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, LIKE
Summary: The HD201 is amazing, considering the price and form factor. It has sound quality that one would never expect from $20 headphones, let alone closed headphones. The bass is fairly deep and pretty clean, but is a bit lacking in oomph and kick, though good amplification helps a bit in that regard. It is the antithesis of the type of bass most cheap headphones have, namely huge and boomy. The quality of the bass is frankly shocking for the price.
