Excerpt: While these headphones are very affordable, they sound open and spacious. After break in, 48 hrs, they sound warmer. Before break in they sounded constricted and harsh. This states the importance of breaking in headphones before any critical listening.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile
Conclusion: I got a free pair of these from Sonic Electronix when I bought my Gemini G4V DJ controller. I don't hate these headphones, but I really question if I ever would have bough them separately. These are some basic on ear headphones that have about a mile long cable and come with a 1/4 inch adapter. One cool thing is the right ear cup swivels back and forth, so this makes cuing a little easier for DJ.
Excerpt: These cans sound better than the HD 212 Pro version, my older cans.<br />They have deeper lows and better highs than the former.<br />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.
Excerpt: im using these for some amatuer production using ableton and theyre awesome! Very well built and they feel great other than a little tight on my head right out of the box. The only downside would have to bw the swivel on the right earcup. When I use it, it feels akward, and the fact that only one does it it kind of stupid. Overall tho excellenct build and sound quality.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: The HD 205 II is a midsize pair of headphones that incorporates a semienclosed circumaural design and is backed by Sennheiser's two-year warranty. Included is a large, thick vinyl carrying bag and a 1/4-inch gold-plated adapter that screws onto a 1/8-inch plug. The construction is decent, but it does flex a bit. Longevity may be an issue, but how much wear and tear is inflicted ultimately depends on the user.

Summary: Bought these in 2010 and only recently had to replace the cable. They're intended for djing and are absolutely fit for purpose. The ability to rotate the right headphone forward or backwards is extremely useful if you want to hear your speakers as well as your monitored mix. Frequency response is far from high fidelity with emphases placed on bass so you can pick out the kick and bassline when mixing. Noise cancellation has been great.
