Summary: The sound is balanced and laided back. No thumping bass and the mids and highs a can be recessed. This is because any low powered device will not bring out the music. I use a external sound card (Diamond Extreme 7.1 usb ) and a Boosteroo amp. The music really comes out smooth with clean bass and silky highs.
It's only good for normal use... the HD 201 heaphones

Excerpt: I obtain this headphone from my brother as a gift. It only noise cancel a little bit so i would say if you are looking for noise cancelling headphone this is not the one unless you are always listen to loud music. The sound quality of this headphone is excellent compare to it's price. The pad makes this headphone comfortable to weaer and fits to your ears perfectly.
Excerpt: Sennheiser 201 headphones are a affordable pair of quality headphones. They do an adequate, but not stellar job for the price. they wont block out every noise, but they will do some. They are quite comfortable with padded ear cushions- although the padding is quite thin. a problem I had with them is the really long cord that comes with them, I would often get tripped up in the cord and that would yank the phones out of my computer.
Summary: the sound quality of these headphones is good. Although when I listen to music with them, the people around me hear what I am listening. Also after a while, these headphones are uncomfortable - so I just wear them around my neck, crank up the volume, and listen to my music that way. these headphones are okay, not great, but not bad either.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones hoping that they would block out noise but I'm afraid they didn't hold up in that area, but they are nice headphones for the low price. The sound quality is adequate, nothing bad, nothing to brag about. The comfort is standard, I wouldn't recommend wearing them longer than 2 hours because they did start to hurt my ears. I found them to be a little large, but I am a smaller person.
Sennheiser DJ Headphones sound ok but not comfortable
9 July 2009
Excerpt: The Sennheiser DJ Headphones HD 201s are average sounding headphones that offer okay balance across the sound spectrum, a little lacking in the sub bass department, but doesn't offer enough padding for prolonged listening sessions. I really wanted to love these headphones simply based on the price, but they just feel too uncomfortable on my ears for longer than an hour.
Summary: I suppose it's unfair to give these headphones a completely bad wrap considering how low of a price that they retail for, and you can get them for even cheaper than that most of the time. The main issue I find with the Sennheiser HD201 is the complete lack of a proper fit or seal no matter how I try to position them on my head, this causes obvious issues with comfort coupled with the fact that the ultra-thin compressed pads barely keep the hard plastic drivers off of...
Summary: These are ok. the sound is too sharp and becomes distorted when volume is raised. there is hardly any noise reduction. And if I turn the volume to where I want it, people can hear what im listening too. oh, not good for traveling because of the not enough noise reduction thing.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Notenough noise reduction, Sound too sharp, Too loud for others
