Summary: These cans sound better than the HD 212 Pro version, my older cans. They have deeper lows and better highs than the former. The only negative point is the cord. It is a bit light and not-so-relable-looking. So I will make sure to treat them with kid's gloves.
Summary: I have noticed that the wires are starting to degrade at the plug, but for 5 years of constant use I'm fine with it!
Pros: Having been musicly trained and working in live sound for 7 years I can, without hesitation say these headphones are amazing! They seal brilliantly and block out sound as good as most sound canceling headphones. I have been using them everyday for almost 5 years and outside of scuffs on the outside nothing has changed.
Cons: I have bigger ears so the tops of the earcups sometimes squish the very top of my ears. If you have this issue just give the cups a little wiggle and it will fix it.
Summary: You would think a company that made "Audiophile" grade headphones could have done better than this. Sound was not as good as the old Sony unit it replaced.The Sennheiser's were comfortable so I kept them. Then they lost sound in one of the speakers in LESS than a year. Much better out there for less money.....
Summary: I've had these headphones for over a year now and haven't had any problems with them. Overall I'm happy with them. If you have a big head, like me, you might find them to be a little on the tight side. They do loosen up after a while but not much. The sound quality is excellent for this price range. When compared to the BOSE headphones I found them to be pretty similar. I give the HD 205 the nod as far as bass response.
Summary: Amazing headphones for the price range, in fact i would say they are the best headphones for the $70 price range. First whats included, the headphones are obvioulsy included, but other than that there is a carrying case, the cord with a 3.5mm jack, and i cant remember if there was a 1/4 inch jack along with it for amplifiers or not because i havent opened the box back up for a while but forget it.
Summary: i have had these headphones for about a month and for the most part they were awsome. the sound quality is great and the rotating right side is very convenient up until the right side no longer worked.
