Summary: Forget the technical jargon - I'm afraid that means little to me. All I know is that I am pleased to finally find a pair of headphones that I am happy with...very happy with !!. I have tried various headphones in an attempt to get a good sound from my ipod.
Summary: The star if for the design. It's an okay headphones if you're just looking for a normal headphones. With the sound, it doesn't live up to the technical details. When I saw it, I thought it was good because of the technical details but, no, it really disappointed me.
Summary: Sennheiser headphones have always been known for two things - a very neutral sound, and tough-as-old-boots build quality. The HD 218 lives up to this at least in part. These are an on-ear headphone - the pads press directly onto your ears, much like the very first Walkman headphones.
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.

Summary: Bought them for my wife when she commutes by train. She loves them as they are a comfortable wear, the sound (music) is fine, and they fold nicely for her hand bag. I almost took away one star because she won't lend them to me!
Summary: I have a pair of these in White and have recently bought these in Black. The sound is good and the build quality is reasonable. The pads are beginning to flake badly on the white ones (2 years) - looks like dandruff! - however they still sound great.
Summary: I've tried these headphones with several types of music. For bass-heavy pop music they're absolutely fine and have a good, clean sound, but for classical or jazz, the lack of a decent treble spoils the listening experience.
Summary: Knowing that Sennheiser is a great make as it has good sound quality I orderd these headphones. They arrived quickly whcih was good, but once I unboxed them I relised that they looked quite small.
Summary: First off, these are extremely comfortable to wear and they do block out a lot of external noise. As with a set of Sennheiser earphones I reviewed recently, I tested these by playing a variety of my favourite tracks from a variety of musical genres and compared to any other headphones I've ever...
Summary: Wanted inexpensive headphones for i-pod that provided a reasonably good sound. These fit the bill perfectly. They are relatively light and comfortable and not bulky. The sound quality whilst not being exceptional is excellent and they provide excellent value for money.
