Summary: These were the first 'decent' pair of headphones that I purchased, and my sentimentality towards them may cause some amount of bias.
I found these headphones to be a bit bassy when I first bought them, but at the same time, I feel now that the amount of bass is quite reasonable.
Pros: Impressive highs and lows; long cord; twistable right headphone; stylish; simple design; cheap price; noise isolation
Cons: Mids seem a bit recessed; cord gets tangled EXTREMELY easily; dislike supra aural design, uncomfortable for long wear, high clamp force
Summary: I bought this pair Refurbished and it was an incredible deal. My first pair of real nice headphones. Overall I'm impressed. Excellent sound with great value. You can listen to almost anything with these and it'l sound right. Bass isn't overdriven and you get good highs and mids.
Summary: This headphone looks like have better plastics build quality compared to sennheiser hd 438.
hd 205 should be a dj headphones!, but the fact this headphone cannot deliver booming bass performance.
Pros: The plastics not look cheap, overall this body looks more expensive than hd 458
Summary: Amazing sound for the price, fairly decent isolation, excellent build quality. Quite a strong punchy bass, not overpowering. Mids are smooth maybe slightly forward. Highs sparkle, can be slightly bright. But at this price who's to complain, jus do not buy if you have a bigger than average head.
Pros: Amazing sound for the price, fairly decent isolation, excellent build quality
Cons: Very tight clamping on head, more on ears than over ears
Summary: I got a pair of 205 ii's for christmas. I enjoy them quite a lot. They sound great through my setup (Asus Xonar dg 5.1 sound card --> Bravo Audio V2 w/stock tube). They sound like poo through any mobile device however. These headphones lack greatly on the comfort side of the spectrum.
Pros: Audio Quality is not bad at all, Style, chord length (depending on where I am),
Summary: These were my third pair of headphones that were of higher quality than your typical, horrible, "shouldn't-even-come-with-an-MP3-player" iPod earbuds. You all know what I'm talking about...those white earbuds that not only hate staying in your ear, but serve a better purpose in your garbage can.
Pros: very nice sound for the price
Cons: not for bassheads, can break easily, painful to wear
Summary: A few months ago I purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD201’s, I liked them enough to buy a pair of HD202’s, Which soon led me to buy their “older cousin” The Sennheiser HD205’s so far I have mostly positive comments about these headphones and I think they are a good deal for the money.
Pros: Volume, Bass, Design, Value
Cons: Comfort, Cord Length (for people who use portable)
Excerpt: DJ’s legen in der Regel vor allem Trance und Styles dieser Art auf. Aus diesem Grund ist der Sound eines Kopfhörers sehr wichtig. Der Sennheiser verfügt über einen angenehm starken Bass, der aber nicht zu dominant wirkt.
Pros: Großer Lieferumfang, Optimal an eigenen Kopf anpassbar
Cons: Kein ausgewogenes Klangbild, Drückt an den Ohren, Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar
