Decent Headphones for Working Out

Doctor Dan, Radioshack

  • Excerpt: The Sennheiser HD 229 are decent headphones for working out at the gym, relatively lightweight and comfortable, with good sound quality. I don't like earbuds or other headphones that stick into my ears, so I appreciate the on-the-ear design. They block out most of the ambient noise in the gym, including the overhead music. Visually they look OK to me, nothing special, though I bought them more for functionality than appearance.
  • Pros: Block Ambient Noise, Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Do Not Fold Up

Bright, Detailed, Good for the Price

  • Excerpt: Sound: Out of the package, the sound was unimpressive, with a boxy and emphasized midrange, and literally no bass. I found that the foam inside the cushions appeared to be installed upside down. The inside of the cushions contains a gray outer foam, with black foam in the center. I noticed the black inner foam bottom perimeter was just touching the bottom perimeter of the pad cover screen. This left a lot of black foam extending above the pad screen/mesh inside the cup.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Low Sound Leakage, Neutral Clear Sound
  • Cons: Bass Light, Bulky Plug, Poor Isolation, Tacky Color Scheme

Really Nice

  • Excerpt: Last pair of headphones was a 25 year old Sony MDR. These are like night and day. These are much lighter, sound quality is great, barely notice that I have them on. Ear cushions are very soft and sized perfectly to sit on my ear, not overly large - not too small. I use them at work instead of the PC speakers. Blocks most of the ambient noise.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Color Wine Really

Disappointing...

Md Francis, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned many pair of headphones, open and closed, many of them Sennhesiers. I have a pair of HD280Pro but they are way to bulky for travel so never having bought a poor set of Sennheisers I bought these "blind". That was a mistake. For the money they are disappointing. Not BAD as such, just I expected better. On the plus side they are comfy and look great. The tone is well balanced. Where I feel let down is the bass - or lack of.
