5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sound for a bargain price!, 1 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sennheiser HD201 Closed Dynamic Stereo headphones (Electronics)
I initially bought these as I wanted to be able to watch late-night TV at a decent volume without waking anyone else in the house up. However, having also tried them on my Sony micro system and my MP3 players - iphone and a Creative Zen, I've found they're also brilliant for music too. At the price point I paid (they were closer to a tenner than the twenty quid they go for now), they have far surpassed all expections, and are still a bargain at their present price.

In short, they are light, comfortable, have (to my ears, anyway) good lows, highs and middles, and also look half-decent too! They've been tested with a variety of music - from Drum and Bass to classical, to rock and the more extreme ends of many genres (the dulcet tones of Insect Warfare, for example), and have performed well with all of them.

I only ever use these indoors, would never think of looking like one of the total tools that insist on wearing headphones around the place when a quality pair of in-ear phones will do the job just as well, but I suspect that for the folks who are into that sort of thing these headphones aren't expensive or flashy enough - it IS all about the pose value, right?

Unless you genuinely have a real ear for subtle differences in audio quality, these headphones are by far the best thing you'll find even at two or three times the price. Even my notoriously fussy mate, who's a long-time recording musician, thinks they're good!
