Sennheiser HD238i

MacWorld
12 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The HD238i are an exceptionally nice sounding pair of headphones, especially good as a handsfree partner to your iPhone. But paying full RRP would be a mistake when there are better pairs for around the same price.
  • Pros: Nice, warm audio; great in-line mic

These small headphones are well made but need equalisation to get the most out of them

Good Gear Guide.au
2 November 2010
  • Summary: Sennheiser's HD 238 Precision headphones are well made and comfortable. Sound quality is good, albeit with a flat frequency response that may be missing some of the musicality of other Sennheiser models. The headphones are nonetheless full of detail.
  • Pros: Good build quality, comfortable ear-cups and headband
  • Cons: Slightly distant mid-bass, "leaky" open nature
