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: Although a little plasticky in appearance the Sennheiser HD218 headphones look smart. They also seem to be well made and are comfortable even when worn for longer periods. The fact that the connecting lead only goes to the left side can means that there's one less wire to catch things in as you wear...
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: Sennheiser's HD 218 headphones are the entry level in a new range of on-ear closed-back models designed for iPods, MP3 players and other portable audio equipment. There are also the HD 228 and the HD 238, all look fairly similar but performance varies with price.
Summary: The HD218 stereo head phones give a frequency response of 19-21,000 HZ in plain English catches the treble and base keeping the quality of the music. They are closed back on the ear which is a very comfortable fit. They are also guaranteed for 2 years which is very impessive.
Summary: I'm not normally a fan of headphones/earphones as I never normally find that they combine sound quality and comfort but these really surprised me. They have a padded head piece and really comfortable ear pieces, I also liked the fact that the ear pieces swivel so that you can angle them the way you...
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: First I'd like to stress (because I didn't know) that these are ON-EAR headphones, not OVER-EAR ones. The difference is these will simply cling to your head and sit on your ears instead of surrounding your ears with a foam 'barrier'.
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: Great sound, and I would have loved them if I hadn't recently been converted in in canal earphones. I found that they kept slipping off my ears but that may be just me. I don't know if it is co-incidence but the firt time I put them in my iPod it froze and I had to reset it!!
