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: 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: 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.
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
Excerpt: Finally got this headphones after 9 days, Packaging was good and strong and the quality of these headphones are really really good. only the main issue is that, on the warranty card i saw there was written that"warranty only for australia". i'm not sure about warranty but this could be the only issue otherwise the quality you get on this price range is flawless! Mainly i use it for video editing, and its working perfectly fine with me.
