Summary: Get these on sale and they are a steal. I've watched movies, listened to a bunch of music and just enjoy using them as much as possible. I recommend, higher end Sennheiser are quite a bit better though, Look for sale
Pros: Sound quality is great. Nothing is really overpowering, everything can just be heard and that's in a wide variety of music. Love the 9ft cable, now my headphones don't have to be ripped off my head all the time. Nice case it comes with as well
Cons: They are very tight when you first get em. They need time to open up but still, after and hour you feel some discomfort but easily manage. Also the 9ft cable, hard to go on a walk with these headphones unless you wrap the cord up and tie it cause you will step on it.
Summary: These little phones are super sounding, and I wish for an extra ten bucks or so Sennheiser would invest in a little larger more comfortable band. It would make them well worth a $50 set of cans.
Pros: They sound great. As with all speakers and headphones, they need a good breaking in. I chose to break these in for an entire day at moderate volume on my stereo home receiver. I purchased these for $25 free shipping, and they were a steal at this price.
Cons: The band is a tight fit. Like a previous user stated, my head is a 7 1/4", and I cannot wear these phones for any more than about an hour before I start feeling discomfort. I have a set of higher end Sennheisers that I can wear all day with no fatigue.
Pros: Sound- so very clear and sublime. Cushioning- very soft. Sound blocking- couldn't hear my better half talking to me in the same room at very low volume. Rotating right cup- goes both forward and backwards. Weight- very light for long-term listening.
Cons: Headband- too tight (not buying that it is for sound isolation) for not-so-big bald head. Right Cup- doesn't rotate enough (+- 30 degrees?) and I had to go on Sennheiser's website to see how to wear it (just in front or behind ear for one-ear listening). Earpads/cups- don't fully cover my average...
Pros: Sound is what is expected of Sennheiser. This is my 5th pair of sennys and others in this price range (+/-10) just either feel cheap, or dont sound as good. These sound very good and clear compared to, well, just about anything my wife has been using for her music editing for her students. The ro...
Cons: According to the Government of 'Merica. I have what is considered a medium sized head. My helmet issued to me in the marines, medium. 7 1/4" Dress Blues cover. So for an average priced headset to cause me 'Peine forte et dure' when wearing them, its just a bad manufacturing job. The headband can ...
Summary: As long as you are not using this to dj, they are good for casual listening. The swivel headset is only on the right side, and it only folds a little bit. That's the biggest issue I had with this model. It shouldn't be advertised as a dj headset if it doesn't have full functionality.
Pros: Very good sound quality for the price. Isolating cups which surrounds you with sound, be careful if you have kids you might not hear them calling in the other room. Extra long phono cord, and a carrying case is included.
Cons: It does get tight around the headband, and will start to make your ears feel sore after a few hours. But the tightness dissipates after prolonged use. After I broke them in, they are snug on my head. The 'dj' label isn't quite accurate. While the right cup does adjust for one ear monitoring, both...
Summary: These are inferior to the HD215 in some respects, but some people might find the HD205's forward presentation more appealing. They are noticeably more detailed than the HD497 and a bit less-detailed than the HD215.
Summary: I see people are having comfort issues. Here's some tips... If ya can't fit em on your big grape(like me)? Get a blow drier and gently heat the crown of the headband. Pull out gently and hold. As it cools it will remain in that shape.
Pros: Great quality for the price. Outside noise is pretty much eliminated (I crank the volume always) Sound doesn't bleed out.. They are comfortable to wear for hours(See other thoughts below).
Cons: There are not any cons. For the price these headphones are sweet!
Summary: I have a hearing loss and wear hearing aids for my daily life but not when I use the headphones. To enjoy music I like to use headphones without headphones I don't enjoy music as it doesn't sound like I know it should.
