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.
not bad for £40 but not really worth anymore than that

Summary: not bad for £40 but not really worth anymore than that,decent sound but they do not block out as much sound as I expected. Not suitable for wearing over long periods as they do get quite hot and are very bulky.
Summary: I've owned these for 3 months now and they are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. I don't like earbuds and previous headphones I've owned made my ears/scalp hurt after prolonged use. These are perfectly cushioned, though they can get a little stuffy after a while in a warm room but that's to be expected. I'm only just getting into improving the sound setup on my PC so I can't really say too much on the sound quality.
Summary: I bought these for my farther for Christmas. They sound fantastic and feel very well constructed. The cable can be replaced easily with standard a 3.5mm jack plug cable. I think these headphones are great value for money and superb quality, which is why I happily give a 5 star rating.
