Sennheiser keeps their record untarnished
Posted by: mrhappyface from: denver,CO on
Amazing headphones for the price range, in fact i would say they are the best headphones for the $70 price range. First whats included, the headphones are obvioulsy included, but other than that there is a carrying case, the cord with a 3.5mm jack, and i cant remember if there was a 1/4 inch jack along with it for amplifiers or not because i havent opened the box back up for a while but forget it. These headphones are unique in what most people would want in DJ headphones. Instead of a rotating cup they rotate on the axis on the band, which causes you to be able to hear out of one ear and be completly alert with the surrounding, a new design in the industry that in my opinion is one of the best design ideas. Comfort wise these are great, they go around the ear and dont cause any pain, so i cant mark off there. These don't leak sound to much, if its an extreamly quiet room then people will notice, but at a whisper no one will. Which brings me up to the noise canceling part of the headphones. These are not noise canceling and dont require a battery to run these headphones, but they do isolate noise which is similar to noise canceling but not exactly the same and not on the same leverl. For durability these are good with build design, nothing is flimsy or weak in any way, and i have owned these for a while. The only problem i have, and i havent noticed a serious change yet but i have noticed slight changes to the sound quality, is the single earcup cord attachment. This might not cause as much tangleing but this is a problem because the cord can break inside of the headphones( it has to go through tthe rotators to get to the other cup) and this makes dangerous for the cords durability. Now for sound quality, which you should be waiting for. These are very balanced headphones which can increase bass to a sutable amount for hip hop, rap, and other genres of that type. Drumlike noises are reproduced well enough to know that they are there and to tell what specifically is being played. Vocal wise these are average, nothing amazing or weak about them, but they help maintain the balance of sound. Guitar like noises are reproduced a little above average but dont overpower the rest of the headphones. Electronics are not reproduced amazingly but again help out with the balance of headphones. Bass wise these are great and can be adjusted if you use the eq right, nothing overpowers the song or makes it worse. Great pair of headphones for the $70, reccomend for everyone since they are balanced in every way, and can be adjusted for bass heavy people. Just for info these are not as amazing as say $100 headphones, they just provide good quaality for the lower price

Died on me.
Posted by: compdude512 from: on
I purchased these headphones in March 2009 at the Best Buy in Greenwood, IN. From the moment I started listening to them, I noticed the excellent sound quality. Whether I used them with my iPod, my computer, or my mixer board, everything was perfect...
Until December. I was listening to some music, and the right headphone completely died. I thought it might be because I'd used these headphones almost daily since I purchased them in 2009, so I gave them a rest and tried them later to see if the problem was just temporary. It wasn't.
Sennheiser is excellent all-around, but they wouldn't honor the 2-year warranty included with these headphones because of Best Buy's famous disappearing-ink thermal receipt paper. Don't get me wrong, though--Sennheiser makes great products, and their warranty department is great if you are able to provide a receipt that can be read. Unfortunately, in my case, I was unable to do so.
I would definitely recommend this product. They were excellent, durable headphones while they worked, and the sound quality was nothing short of perfect. They blow the $100 Bose headphones out of the water. More importantly, though, I would recommend keeping your receipt in a place where it won't fade for the warranty period. I learned the hard way what happens if you don't.
Because my pair died, though, I can only give these three stars. Hopefully, you'll have better luck if you decide to buy a pair of these.

i have had these headphones for about a month and for the most part they were awsome. the sound quality is great and the rotating right side is very convenient up until the right side no longer worked.

Well balanced with good bass
Posted by: JMesta from: Torreón, Coahuila, México on
Im very happy with the headphones, they are well balanced and have a good bass also. I think they´re very versatile, since i listen to pretty much a lot of genres, and it pulls the job.
For the money this are superb! I have heard that they are not comfortable, but for me they are, you just need to tweak them a little bit.
In terms of durability as long as you act normally with the headphones and don´t open them like crazy, there´s no problem at all.
Soundwise as long as is good quality music, they will sound great! they also isolate good for being passive headphones, when you just turn the volume a little, forget about external noise!
I also use them to produce electronic music and they help me a lot!
Worth checking them out!

Another review quoting discomfort
Posted by: Bear64501 from: Kansas City, MO on
These were pitched to me as: "You need these, they have great noise isolation, rotating ear cup, long cord, etc."... So I bought them. Took them on a trip the next day and realized something... What do I need the rotating cup or long cord for? Last time I checked I'm not a DJ.
They sounded good though so I could look past the insanely long cable. Then a half-hour later I couldn't keep these things on my head, so the rest of the 3 hour trip to and 3 hour trip back I had to lower them behind my head to decrease the pressure, well then they started leaking sound, so I had to switch to an audio book from my music so I wouldn't bother those next to me.
Still haven't found the perfect headphones.

Good sound for the price
Posted by: Jampos from: Olympia, WA on
I've had these headphones for over a year now and haven't had any problems with them. Overall I'm happy with them. If you have a big head, like me, you might find them to be a little on the tight side. They do loosen up after a while but not much.
The sound quality is excellent for this price range. When compared to the BOSE headphones I found them to be pretty similar. I give the HD 205 the nod as far as bass response. The BOSE set, however, does a better job of separating the highs, mids, and lows.
If you want good headphones ,and don't want to spend $300 on Dre Beats or $100+ on BOSE, I would definitely recommend these.

Needed new headphones in a hurry, these looked good. Unfortunately there were none to try on at the store. They sound great, except the low end is a bit lacking but that actually works in my favor. The cord is straight, not coiled - ok I could deal with that if I have to but sooner or later it'll get broken as its flimsy. They should show the cord through the package. Lastly, they're rather tight and uncomfortable - unacceptably so for a 7 hour gig. Once my new pair arrives, I'll give these to a tiny-headed friend of mine.

Good set of headphones
Posted by: DrBreen3 from: on
They are great. Have had them for 2 years now, and mind you i dont take carr of them very well. They've been dropped and stepped on once and there is still no damage. The sound i think is very good. I like that i came with the studio style jack or 3.5mm. I will buy another pair for sure. Most importantly i use these EVERY day, i dont have speakers and i'm a hardcore gamer. Downside is that when i bought them they were tight on the ears hurt, loosened within a week.

I didn't get very far in my audition of these phones, because they felt like my head was in a vise! If they fit, they might be the ones for you.

Outstanding headphones, for the investment!
Posted by: Lawmanky from: Louisville, KY on
I really reviewed a number of headphones available prior to selecting the Sennheiser. These worked great for the DJ event I had to complete and met all my expectations. They are well worth the investment and seem to be very durable headphones. The only negative may be that over a period of a few hours thay can become a little uncomfortable, but I stand behind the product and the value. If your looking for a quality set of headphones that don't kill your checkbook, I highly recommend you give them a try.
