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: Though I read many reviews for this product, I never thought bass would be very bad not even equal to my transcend headphones came along with mini mp3 player. For bass lovers, please dont go for it... This headphone cannot reproduce the bass even with the help of equaliser. Choose different brand. This brand is good only if you go for high end( above 10k) I suppose... I bought it because of brand name... I was highly disappointed in 5 mins after unboxing it :( ..

Summary: I am not a serious audiophile or have any great expertise, but based on my experiences so far, I would say this is the best headphone money can buy in this range. You get to hear details you never heard before, crisp sound quality. The design is over-the-ear and hence doesn't heat up too much or hurt too soon (you would be good to go for about two hours). But the sound doesn't have a wholesome experience to it.
Summary: The sound quality of pretty good and with the earcups detachable, this probably makes the headphones less prone to snapping as the remainder is made of a single piece of plastic. However, the headphones are a little tight; I can't keep them on longer than an hour or two before the lack of circulation becomes painful. I hoped this would improve after a couple of months but this does not seem to be the case.
