Summary: I've owned these headphones for around 9 months now, and they are excellent for electronic music. You may feel a little weird walking around in them, but they are powered very well by every portable device I've owned (iPod, Samsung YP-Z5, Sony Discman). Sound quality and definition has been improved using a pocket amp including a broader soundstage; this is probably to be expected considering their intention towards home DJ application.
Summary: I'd like to say that these are really great-sounding cans, at least as far as quality goes. These weren't exactly up my alley, because they have a huge soundstage and the sound seems to originate from a distant point (they're laid back). They are the most detailed headphones that I've owned, their bass is precise, tight, but it could offer a bit more impact. They improve on every aspect of sonic performance comparing to the HD205, which are pretty good as well.
Summary: HD 215 model was borrowed from Sennheiser and compared with Audio-Technica ATH-M50. Assumed price was about $80 which is not verified. Please see full review and comparison here:
Pros: Solid build, detachable cable, light weight for type, good comfort, clear mids and highs
Cons: Bass response while accurate is lacking in overall quantity
Summary: So, I had bought this after Christmas from a gift certificate I had received. I was longing to get these phones for myself and wanted to upgrade from a Sennheiser HD 202 (whose wire is already falling appart) and an ATH-RE70 from Audio Technica. These headphones would cost around 4000+ Philippine Pesos in my country. It comes with a coiled 3 meter cable that is threaded on one side for a 6.3mm plug and a nice leatherette pouch for storage.
Pros: Long cord, neutral sounding, 90° swivel on the right earcup, smooth highs, nice crispy mids, good bass, blocks outside noise well, bendy and durable.
Cons: Bass is lacking for a basshead, wire is somewhat a hassle if you're on the go as it drops down, it is hard to find a replacement cable.
Excerpt: I have been a firm fan of Sennheiser’s products for a number of years, and I always went for the £30-£40 price range headphones, and was happy with the results. Sennheiser’s HD 215 headphones are a step up from that. These are available online for ~£65.

Above "Star" ratings are relative to price.
Price paid is approx MSRP, this was lent sample
The big section you have all been waiting for! I am a very universal listener. Not exotic in artists but univeral in genres. I listen to the popular artists or songs of many genres.
Pros: A almost balanced sound, efficent build. Decent comfort and isolation
Cons: Plastic is a bit "bendy" with it being a bit hard to swivel at times, can get uncomfortable.
Summary: Brilliant sound. When looking for headphones, i stumbled across two reviews on this product; one was that there was not enough bass, and the other said there was too much. Fundamentally, it comes down to the song you play as diferent songs are equalized for different situations. Sound: The sound is of excellent clarity, in some songs I can hear the sustain pedal being pressed which i would not have heard with my brother's AKGs.
