Summary: I wanted affordable headphones with good sound isolation to replace my iPod touch earphones, something I could stuff into my backpack without worrying about scratches or hits. Soundwise, these phones are fine. They deliver rich bass and balanced mids and highs. Their closed, supraaural design is also both confortable--either for a 45-mins bus ride or for a couple of hours at my desk--and effective in a noisy environment (they block most outside noise and they don't leak...
Pros: Comfortable, Effective noise blocking, Good bass, Good Sound, Lightweight
Cons: Cheap materials, Flimsy cable, Very low quality jack
Summary: The product was not so quite what I expected. I had high expectation with Sennheiser. The noise blocking is amazing. You literally cannot hear any outside noise. But the sound quality is pretty average.
Summary: I am listening through the Sennheiser HD218 Headphones right now. I am currently comparing them to a cheap pair of headphones that I have right here. The cheap pair ($3.88) sound better; they are Coby headphones. The highs are not as clear as they should be and the lows are almost nonexistent. You might here something that sounds like a little bass every now and then. The headphones fit on your ears, pressing down on them. I thought that they would fit around my ears.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Cord Too Short, Fragile Cord, Low volume, Poor Sound, Thin Cord, Very Little Bass
Summary: The sound quality and comfort of these headphones is very good for the relatively small outlay of £20. However, the first pair I owned lasted less than a year before one of the headphones ceased to work. Richer Sounds kindly replaced them, but the second pair packed up this week as well, after only 14 months of use.
Pros: the comfort , good rounded sound quality
Cons: they have a limited life , they don't withstand the rigours of travel!
