Summary: (My review was done after removing the foam from under the pleather padding, known as the "Asteroid Mod" on Head-fi) - Many reviewers either love or hate these, and I'm assuming this is a fit issue. Before I removed the foam, There were hardly any lows or highs.
Pros: - Light/portable - Comfortable, they sit on your ears (can listen to these for hours) - One-sided cable
Cons: - Flimsy/cheap design - A bit harder to power than average portable headphones - Do not fold up
Summary: I wasn't expecting a ton out of these, they happened to be on sale so I decided to pull the trigger. My immediate thoughts are, these are the lowest tier for a Sennheiser product. That being said, they're not awful the sound quality is decent, they aren't as loud as I had anticipated but they're not...
Pros: Cheap, mediocre sound, somewhat fashionable and compact.
Cons: The cord is extremely cheaply made, the entire product is kind of spotty but definitely usable.
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!!
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: 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: I had some sennheisers cheaper than this and they packed up nicely and had a bag for safety, these are difficult to travel with and can easily break because of this, my last pair broke at the cable end and instead of getting them covered I thought I'd go for the dynamic bass which is okay but the...
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.
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.
