Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sennheiser HD 205 Closed Back Over-Ear Stereo Headphone With Rotatable Ear Cup (Electronics)
I bought these headphones on the recommendation of a recording studio engineer. I'm a musician and am fussy about being able to listen to good quality sound reproduction. These headphones are what I was hoping for in many aspects. The sound is rich and has depth and dimension. You can hear stuff in the mix which you cannot hear in standard iPhone earplugs. They create space in the music enabling the listener to home in on individual instruments and voices within the music. The bottom end is not exaggerated as it can be the case with many headphones and speakers etc these days. We'll have none of that muffled, wooley deep rumble here! That's not to say there's no bass because there is plenty of it-but it's rounded and clear and has a transparent quality which leaves enough space for the other frequencies to cut through cleanly. Overall I'd say that the sound is very natural. There is also plenty of distortion free volume available!
I enjoy listening to them and have worn them for over two hours non-stop to record my own music with no comfort issues. I didn't find the fit at all too tight as some reviewers seem to - and I've got a large head! :-) I'd also like to point out that they have to be fairly tight over your ears to help block out external sounds of course. Which they do admirably. But they are not tight or sweaty.
One warning though-the point where the connection wire goes into the headphone does look a bit prone to eventual damage from wear and tear. But that's the case with many such connections. The answer is to take care.
Great headphones. I really enjoy them. Worth the money.
