  • Summary: I'm just a junior head-fi'er, but I do love my music.   ~~~Summary for the hasty?~~~ They are decent $50 headphones, but they are barely decent. The only area that they excel in is portability. Everything else is just sufficient for the price you pay. My recommendation? Buy them on sale. I know looks are subjective but they seem pretty stylish. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Build: Sufficient. I admit, one year of use is not very long, but they show no sign of damage.
  • Pros: Affordable! , Comfortable, Easily Stored, Sufficient Build
  • Cons: Sound a bit unclear, build is decent but not stellar.

Not worth full price.

  • Summary: Bought this as a special offer and glad I didn't pay full price for it because it's not worth that much. The Sony over ear headphones I bought for my son cost less and are much better.

Not too bad, but could be better...

  • Summary: Sound quality is good but lacks a bit of depth and bass. The HD239 's sound better, shame they are an open design.

Its all about that bass...

  • Summary: Nice design. I agree with previous reviews that volume and answer controls could be easier to find and use as you cannot look at them when wearing the set. Bass is an issue. I have a similar pair of headphones (HD408) from the same manufacturer (which is the reason I chose them again) and they produce much better low end sound for a slightly smaller price tag..

  • Summary: These are a well made headset. They have a lot of detail but unfortunately the sound is quite tinny.

To buy on sale

  • Summary: Overall they are good headphones but compared to the HD 218 (exactly the same minus the remote) I find them a bit tighter on the ears. Also the cord is much much shorter than in HD218. My advice is to buy this model ONLY when there's a sale: otherwise the difference in price doesn't cover for only a play button with a mic and a volume..

Reasonable sound

Dave Harmer, Amazon

  • Summary: These are OK, probably no better than my £9 philips in ears but if you want a more comfortable alternative these are pretty good. They leak a fair bit of noise but if you don't have the volume up beyond about half and you are into headphone comfort these are good enough for everyday use

Sennheiser HD 219s

B.G.V., Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: A bit disappointed after reading the 5star reviews. Just feel that there's something missing and not a big enough improvement over present (closed) headset. Had to return them and now trying MM70s.

Sennheiser HD 219 phones: smart remote control feature, but pricey and overall just OK

The Guardian, Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: These headphones are designed for use with a portable music player like an iPod. The sound quality is good - as you might expect from a strong brand like Sennheiser - but not great, the bass in particular being weak (a more expensive version of these headphones is available `with dynamic bass response'). Positives: lightweight, reasonably robust, and the excellent `remote control' moulded onto the cable which enables you to pause/play/skip/ etc.
