Conclusion: If you know about good headphones, then you know about Senn's. The 205-II's were bought as a budget priced "tertiary" pair of production cans. I wish I could tell you that they sound great but I cant.
The sound quality and the sound blocking qualities are great for this price

Summary: The sound quality and the sound blocking qualities are great for this price. But the built quality really lets much to be desired. Pretty much exactly after one year the cable would start failing, causing first one, then both earpieces to stop delivering sound.
Summary: A very nice pair of headphones I would have given 5 stars except fr 2 gripes, first being the wiring is not detachable / replaceable as I have come to expect from Sennheiser headphones, on top of that the wiring itself seems quite fragile which I will keep an eye on.
Pros: Good Sound Quality, Perfect Fit, Easy To Use
The price is great but I would not recommend purchasing these headphones

Summary: These headphones offer very clear audio. However, after around 9 months they broke; audio only came through one side and was very quiet and muffled. A friend of mine who owned the same pair of headphones experienced the same issue after a similar amount of time.
Summary: For £30, these headphones are more than adequate for the DJ on a budget. The sound quality is easily £30 worth, though perhaps lacking in lower bass frequencies, and its swivel function, allowing the right earpiece to pivot up and down for one-ear monitoring, is a lovely idea that, as a DJ, I miss...
Summary: I am sorry to say that the general comments about these headphones appear to be true. I was after some circum-aural, closed back, reasonably priced and reasonably balanced headphones and these ticked all the boxes.
