Excerpt: I recently wanted to get new headphones to use with my laptop, and I decided to go for the Sennheiser HD 205. I bought it at amazon for £35. My first impressions of this product were bad. It took me nearly half an hour to unpack the headphones . However, after I was done, I was extremely impressed. It came with a lot of extras that made me proud to have made the purchase. For example, it has an adapter which allows it to be used on multiple formats.
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. So it's only natural for someone like me to toss them aside and use a better pair of earbuds.
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.
First off lets start off with the price, they retail for around 50-80 USD. I picked them up for about 21 USD off of Amazon.
Pros: Volume, Bass, Design, Value
Cons: Comfort, Cord Length (for people who use portable)
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. I also like the design, quite cool and stylish.
Very tight clamping on head, caused an unbearable pain after wearing for more than 10 minutes. more on ears than over ears.
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: 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. (*note: similiar with hd 438 that was claimed have powerfull bass performance, but the fact is NO!
Pros: The plastics not look cheap, overall this body looks more expensive than hd 458
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. Unfortuntely with long use it's tight on your head and can cause ear pain. The cord is extremely long which makes portability a pain in the butt.
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. Most devices will let you manually alter the levels these days anyway.
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: Bought these for sound editing and discovered the usual excellent sennheiser sound quality but the ear cushions are a tad small for my ears. It makes them uncomfortable to wear for long periods. If you have small ears or only use them occasionally they're excellent. I'm going to have my ears reduced as soon as possible.
