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: These headphones are a bargain for the price. The sound quality is excellent, although I think the vocals and high sounds tend to stand out a bit too much for my liking. They are not the "Dynamic bass" producers that are advertised. The sound is generally flat but this satisfies my needs. My only moan is the build quality. They feel really flimsy, and it definitely wouldn't take much to break them.
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.
Summary: I got completely fed up with hefty infra-red and wireless closed back headphones, and as I had reorganised my living room I could now use headphones without trailing wire all over the room for my wife to get tangled up in. I chose these from the reviews, despite some being rather negative.
Summary: I read other reviews about these headphones and for the price I thought I'd take a chance. I just needed them for use with my iPad, listening to music, videos etc. I wasn't disappointed..... They are brilliant......cut out external noise and good bass. I'm no expert when it comes to headphones but I know how I like my music to sound and they are great for all genres. Would definitely recommend.
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: These 'on-ear' headphones are compact and come with a 1.4m lead and 3.5mm jack. The design itself is good; cushioned headband and earpieces for comfort and the earpieces swivel so that the headphones are easily stored away when not in use. Whilst comfortable to wear I did find that the earpieces kept slipping off my ears when I moved my head - no other reviews mention this so it must be a problem with my ears as opposed to the earphones ;o) The sound quality is excellent...
Summary: These are a decent set of headphones that sit comfortably on your ears. As with all Sennheiser products the sound quality is good, however, they do leak sound which isn't a problem for the listener but may bother those around you. I tried these on the plane to Orlando to see if they were any better than my normal in ear type but they were not, you could still hear the drone of the plane engines. I don't think they particularly isolate sound.
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. The HD 238s are quite a bit more expensive than the other two models but, at the time of writing, the HD 228s are only a couple of quid more than the HD 218s from Amazon.
