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 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.
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),
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 …
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)
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: 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: 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...
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.
