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. A few features: Size: 22.9 x 25.4 x 10.2 cm. Weight: 281 g. Frequency response: 12-22,000 Hz. Earpiece type: Circumaural - Surrounds and covers the ear with a cup. Cable length: 3m, coiled to about 1m.
Summary: I was looking and debating whether to go for these or to save for Dr. Dre Beats, but i decided I wanted these. The sound on them has a rich bass and true crisp clear acoustics! The do not even leak sound out when I have them on full blast! So theyre amazing when walking down the streets or in public :) They also have an amazing design! Do not hesitate, i would definatly chose these over any other headphone available on the market!
Summary: Originally bought these headphones in 2006, they lasted until early 2012 with every day use. Unfortunately they broke and I decided to replace them with a newer pair of Sennheiser HD449's, these lasted 6 or so months, in-comparison the build quality was terrible. After the HD449's broke, I replaced them with a pair of Sony MDR-V55, they sounded great, but they turned out to be incredibly uncomfortable and cheaply made (with terrible audio leakage).
Excellent Quality, MUST CHOOSE AN EQ on your device though.

Summary: TLDR: Check the cable (Headphone side) is properly fitted or they will sound terrible. Very comfy and stable on my head, sounds great on most devices and with most genres of music. When I first received these headphones, I instantly plugged them into my daily driver iPod Classic 30GB, to find them cutting out most mid frequencies and all bass.
