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: 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.
Excerpt: I bought the Sennheiser HD 205 headphones a number of years ago as I like to DJ in my spare time and had heard good things about Sennheiser products. The headphones cost around £30-40 depending on where you shop and are ideal for bedroom DJs and event DJs alike.
Excerpt: The headphones are very tight, and press uncomfortably heavily into the sides of your head after a few minutes wearing them. Also, the earpieces are very small and anyone who has normal sized ears won't fit inside the ear-cups - so your ears are uncomfortably squashed.
Excerpt: 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.
HD205 Great for DJs, But is it good enough for everyone else?

Excerpt: Nice looking headphones.Bass sound is probably a little to heavy for me. Serious downside of headphones is,unless you have the head size of say a 10 year old child,you will feel that your head is in a vice/no adjustment to ease the problem. Unable to wear for more than half an hour ie to painful.
Excerpt: These phones have a very low threshold and give you a big bass bump at about 70-120hz and you don't want any of that when you are buying a set. I think that headphone mixes are important. Isolation was not that bad when cutting drums and that is unusual for a set of cans like this.
The Sennheiser's, sound great, feel great and are great value....

Excerpt: Design: Sennheiser is known more its functionality than its cutting edge looks, and this set is no different. Although much better looking than some of their other models, the HD205 DJ headphones are not head turners like the Pioneer HDJ-1000 or the Sony MDR-700.
Pros: Good Sound, Comfortable, Good Value
Cons: Over time the moving arm gets loose and can be annoying .
