  • 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.

  • Summary: This headphone looks like have better plastics build quality compared to sennheiser hd 438.   Sounds: 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
  • Cons: cannot perform extreme bass

  • Summary: These Sennheiser headphones feel extremely snug and secure. They come tight as ever and I wouldn't worry about them ever falling off of your head. The ear cup swivel feature is attractive, however i've only had these headphones and listened to them "swiveled" once or twice and it already feels somewhat loose. The headphones are also connected to the head strap by a thin plastic ball-joint which I can tell will already get loose very fast.

  • Summary: These headphones emphasize the "DJ" part of the model name -- put these on and you'll feel like you're in a dance club. Too much emphasis on bass for me, but if that's you're thing then these are the cans for you. I use it with an i-Pod and found the sound quality vastly improves if I select "bass reducer" on the i-Pod's equalizer menu when using these headphones. Overall: good construction and comfortable, but not as balanced a sound as I'd like.

  • Summary: Great sounding headphones for the price. The bass was a *little* distorted, but besides that, they sound great. Two or three people at my school have actually bought them themselves after borrowing mine.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Price
  • Cons: Long Cord, Uncomfortable with long use.
