Summary: I got these because I'd seen another positive review and I got sore ears from those in-ear types. They are comfy to wear and not at all tight. The sound from my Ipod is excellent and nobody else can hear what I'm listening to. On a plane they are Ok but obviously not noise-reducing. They fold flat for travelling but are still quite big but not a problem for me. All in all I'm very pleased with them.
Summary: Hi there everyone, i bought these headphones a few weeks ago for my kids who both have ipods, the headphones were my treat as i wanted them to be able to really appreciate there music and enjoy the quality that a good pair of headphones would provide,i also bought a pair of the sennheiser hd 228 at the same time as i wanted to compare!
Summary: The sound from these headphones was good and they are comfortable. I had a pair for 3-4 months before the left speaker stopped working. Again, this was a problem with the cord (i've had this problem before with Sennheiser) which is frustrating having got little use out of them. This could be because I flung them in my bag quite often, they are probably fine for home use.
Summary: Superb build and comfort complete the all-round package that is the HD 218. As for sound performance that tends to go without saying. If anything bass is a little dominant, but that is a tiny criticism. Brilliant bit of kit for under £50 and are great for commuting if you value your fellow passengers as they have very little sound leakage.
Summary: These lightweight headphones are comfortable and stay on whilst I am exercising in the gym. They are far better in both respects than the previous earpiece unit that I had. The new headphones are robust. I have dropped them on the floor a few times without incident. The sound quality is fine, but I never listen to music. The only disadvantage is that my ears get very hot after 10 minutes hard exercise on an exercise machine.
Summary: I bought a pair of these in early January and while the sound is good they don't go very loud and there's alot of sound leak so you will annoy people around you at a mid level volume. these headphones after about a month of use started to deteriorate, the sound went in one of the ears quickly followed by the other. after sending them back and getting a new pair the exact same thing happened 3 weeks later.
Summary: First the disclaimer - I am not an audiophile and I really can't discuss top end or frequencies. I am someone that travels a lot and listens to music, podcasts and video / DVD on a laptop. I'm used to in-ear / 'bud' headphones and I've generally been happy with these. I like Sennheiser products and got these as the price was good and I'd had good experiences with other Sennheiser products. First impression was how light these felt both in my hands and when wearing them.
Summary: As these are inexpensive headphones i wasn't expecting too much from them but didn't get any surprises. They are lightweight and reasonably put together. The fit was fine for me but obviously would vary from person to person maybe not for someone with larger ears. I was disappointed with the sound quality, bass definately not dynamic and sound in general was a little quite and muffled.
Summary: Bought these to listen to my ipod touch and laptop music. I have had Sennheiser headphones before and had been pleased with then so bought them with that in mind. For the price the sound quality is good, they do however seem a bit cheaply constructed and flimsy. My main reason for only 3 stars is that they leak sound at even moderate volumes.
