Great Headphones for the Price!
Posted by: PracticalShopper from: Everett, Washington on
Most of the reviews for these headphones were very good, but there were a few reviewers who complained that the bass response was poor. I use them with my IPOD Classic and the bass is excellent. The sound is crisp and clear, and the headphones are comfortable. Yesterday I wore them for four hours while working in my yard and I experienced no discomfort. The cord is a little long, so I wound it up and secured it with the wire tie and tucked it in my pocket. I'm very pleased with this purchase and recommend these headphones to anyone who doesn't want to spend one to three hundred dollars for a high end pair.

A Good Value
Posted by: Tesla from: New York on
I am completely satisfied with these headphones. At the price I did not expect to get an audiophiles dream: I did get good headphones that provide good qualiity sound, better than I would expect at the price. I love the long cord becaus it allows some mobility while using them. I find they are very comfortable, and while they are not nor were supposed to be sound canceling, they do provide some buffering of outside sounds. I would buy another pair of these headphones and would have no reservations about recommending them to a friend.

Sennheiser HD201s Deliver
Posted by: ElderDude from: Livermore, CA on
I was looking for an affordable set of closed ear headphones that produced great sound (for PC/console gaming, laptop, iPod, etc.) and was also lightweight, and the HD 201s fit the bill. They were professionally packaged as like all Sennheiser products and come with a 1/4" adapter... nice bonus there. The cord is also very generous which is always important for non-wireless headphones, just note that each earcup is wired which I actually prefer over the 'only one earcup is wired' approach.
The HD 201s are indeed lightweight just by picking up the retail box, and have excellent build quality overall. I owned an older set of Sennheiser headphones and the headband cushion eventually started loosing adhesion, but this one is secured by a couple of mounts on either side of the inner headband, so it's unlikely you'll have that problem with these headphones. They're also fairly adjustable to fit a variety of melon sizes, and the earcups swivel and tilt for added comfort.
The HD201s passed all my tests in terms of producing great sound levels. Crisp bass thundered from the likes of Crystal Method and Metallica, but not to the point of being overwhelming. Treble was also spot on and there was no noticeable distortion or static in the background. Of course these are not noise cancelling so you'll still be able to hear a bit of your surroundings when you don't have audio pumping through, although muffled. And they do tend to make your ears a tad warm so you'll probably not be able to use them for hours at a time. All in all though, a great bargain for only 20 bucks as of the time of this review... just be sure to buy it at the sale price!

Bought it because I needed a reasonably priced set of head phones that would not agitate my ears after an hour or so. Really glad I selected these.

A very great set of headphones, the sound quality is exceptional, obviously not to be compared to higher end headphones, but certainly is the best bang for buck on the market.

Great Pair of Headphones
Posted by: swagmasterT from: Paducah, KY on
If you are an audiophile, a teenager, or have a home studio, these are the headphones for you. At first I was resistant, because I am a rapper, and a lot of the reviews were negative for one reason only: not enough bass. These headphones have GREAT BASS. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of bass that is actually in these headphones. The highs are crisp, the mids sound great, and the lows are really deep. These are the most perfectly balanced headphones that I have ever used. I would have to say at LEAST 10X better than the skullkandy ink'd earbuds. The build quality is excellent. If you like your music LOUD, then these headphones are for you. If you turn these all the way up, and put them on, you can't hear anything around you, and noone around you can hear what song you're listening to, but if you take them off, they're like speakers. Its amazing the amount of noise-isolation these have. THE BEST $30 I'VE EVER SPENT IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

best ive had
Posted by: Arbl from: Anchorage, AK on
this pair of headphones is the best pair ive had to date. i bought them for when im walking around traffic, and need to be able to hear my music without going deaf. for the price that they are, its hard to go wrong. i would also reccomend buying the geek squad black tie prtection for them... just in case.
overall, well worth the money spent, and great quality... now if they could just shorten that cord a bit...

These headphones are excellent. I didnt want to pay for the popular brand logo seeing as I would primarily use them at home, but I find myself taking them everywhere because I enjoy their quality so much. Although it seems that when my volume is turned all the way up on my devices (i.e. laptop or ipod) it isnt as loud as it could be, like several other pairs of my ear buds are. This taken into consideration, it does an excellent job of muffling out annoying sounds from any other individuals in my house. Other people on here complain about the cord size, but I find it very helpful and enjoy it very much, if I want to get up to grab something in my room I can keep them on and walk around freely if connected to my computer. Also, being a college student and squeezing the piggie bank every chance i get, 25 bucks made my choice a "no brainer."

Good for music, bad for my amp.
Posted by: gameboy31 from: Tiffin Oh on
I got these thinking they were like studio speakers. Unfortunately, when used with any high gain sounds with my amp, the distortion sounds like it is coming from bees in a tin can. Cleans sound very crisp. When used with regular music, it sounds just fine.

very good. cord is just to long
Posted by: jharold83 from: temple hills MD. on
it's a good product for the money.The only real problem is that the cord is to long for Ipod use only.
