Excerpt: I have to say when I put this headphones on I expected "$ sound" but I heard $ sound". So sound quality is superb! The reason why I put 3 stars is because they are small and ears heart after 10 minutes of listening. HOWEVER headphones are made of plastic and might be looser and will stop hurting. SO 5 stars for quality and 1 star for comfort.
Conclusion: I'll keep this short and simple. These headphones are not their best model and are out-dated however I thought I'd give them a try since they were very cheap. They sound good but not great. I get better sound out of my little iPhone 5 ear buds however if the kids are making a lot of noise, it is nice to have a full over the ear cover. The HD 202 also doesn't fold flat like the new ones so if you travel, they take up a lot of thickness in your laptop bag.
Summary: If you're looking for some headphones in the $20 range, you could absolutely do worse than the HD-202. As far as "cheap" headphones go, they have a decent sound and feel reasonably comfortable, just don't expect them to sound like you spent $100.
I tried them in three different contexts, for this review:
FPS gaming was a serious let-down.
Pros: Extremely long cable; Included cable wrapper
Excerpt: The sound quality is not as good as I had hoped for a Sennheiser product. I am using these for audio editing and I don't think they are the right model for that. I have a pair of Panasonic's that were about the same price but the sound quality is much richer.
Summary: When I first read the reviews for this item, I was taken aback by so many reviews and buyers and many positive reviews out of it. My pair of JBLs were in their last stages of life, so I was researching to buy a new pair. The brand Sennheiser and so many good reviews led me to buy this. Now action time, I unpack it, put it on. Super fitting with adjustable headbands. Mind-blowing noise cancellations.
Summary: I have been using sennheiser headphones for a long time and even take them to recording studios as they are lighter than the studio ones. The quality is near enough the same. Be prepared to use a higher volume than when using portable headphones as the sound is able to resonate behind the ear as well as inside
Its good in its category but there are better options

Summary: If you are looking for an over the ear headphones then this is reasonable in its category but if you are looking for a better quality and it does not matter if its over the ear, then you should go for Sennheiser CX 180 Street II In-Ear Headphone. The quality doesn't differ much and the bass effect is better in the CX180. I can tell that because I have both. Got HD 202 first and then tried one of my friend's CX 180, it sounded better.
