Product Description

Product Description

The HD201 are closed, dynamic headphones featuring extended, accurate response, impressive dynamic potential and remarkable comfort. The HD201 has an over-the-ear closed-back design that delivers attenuation of ambient noise, encouraging the wearer to become fully immersed in sound without undue distractions. This headphone features smooth, natural, extended response.

The HD201's low frequency extends to 21 Hz and the HD215 to an amazing 12 Hz while both models perform to the upper limits of human hearing with ratings of 18 kHz and 22 kHz and deliver dynamic potential to spare for reproducing any musical style with real-world levels and impact, with SPL limits of 108 dB and 112 dB.

So despite it's unusually lightweight, comfortable design, the HD201 stands ready to create a true high-end personal listening experience, with the natural tonalities and impressive dynamic impact experienced listeners expect from any headphone carrying the Sennheiser name.

Everyone giving these phones a 5 star rating is quite right. I really wanted a pair of Sennheiser headphones and thought I'd give the HD201 model a try. For the price, I expected something fairly mediocre. How wrong can you be?

The sound quality is absolutely outstanding. If I'd paid £100 for these, I'd have been happy. I'm no DJ or sound expert, but still cannot believe the clarity and rich sound. I'm not convinced the bass is as deep as some have said and I think it does need a little boost from an amp, but the phones handle it with no distortion. After buying these, I listened to various genres of music (from classical to trance) and wasn't disappointed with any. I then left them connected overnight with a playlist of the different music styles to bed them in. It does make a huge difference to the sound and is worth the effort.

No wonder Sennheiser have such a good reputation! Don't be fooled by the price of these, they look and sound a lot more expensive!!

I honestly don't know what some people are doing with their headphones to have them break within a few weeks. Nor can I comprehend what they consider "good sound quality". I mean I'm just baffled as to what more you could ask for at this price. I've had them for around 2 years now without any faults and I can easily sit with them on all day without a comfort issues. This is on top of wearing glasses. The band has only now just started to lose its tension, such that they will slip off my head if I'm too vigorous, but they never pinched or hurt my ears, not even when they were brand new.

I've never had any distortion through them, as lower scoring reviews have suggested, even when pushing volume and whatever else to max. Honestly if you don't think you can get decent volume or sound quality from these then you're being far too picky, are very much in the wrong price bracket for your needs or are listening to your music far, far too loud.

Similarly, if they are breaking within a few weeks then you are either seriously mistreating them, they've been damaged in the post or you have received a faulty product. Mine have suffered numerous drops and prangs, and I've run over the cable with my desk chair more than I care to admit. They still perform flawlessly. Unfortunately, that same cable is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars. Occasionally I've been very thankful that it's so long but when using them while on the PC or to watch TV late at night you have alot of extra cable trailing across the floor. And of course it will get inexplicably tangled in whatever it can (as cables do) unless you tie it up.

I have had nothing but a positive experience with these and would buy another pair in a heartbeat. Again, for the price, these are simply an amazing pair of headphones.

These headphones sound great with my ipod and my macbook, and has superb clarity, treble and bass. I recently bought the sony MDR-V300 Headphones and these are way better! The sound is way clearer, compared to the sony's which have way too much bass in my opinion. Also these are much more comfortable than the sony for extended periods of time...Solid purchase!!!

These are probably the best cans in the WORLD for under £20. They are balanced, have great bass response, strong mids and sparkling highs. Although a little on the bright side for some, they do offer superb sound reproduction at this price. They are also sealed, and have a low impedance (32ohm), making them ideal for portable use. (rember to break them in)
Pros:
>Loud (32ohm) and sealed shutting out outside sound and sealing your music in.
>They are VERY light AND comfortable
>Unrivalled sound quality at this price point
>If you are one of the anti-Grado fashion-esque folk then these headphones are stunners, the look COOL and expensive.
Cons:
> The cable doesnt have an uptake and is quite long, so youll need a hairband or elastic band to keep the 3m cable under control.
>For the lazy hermits among you, there is no volume control, though i dont really see this as a disadvantage (they damage sound quality)
>They will make you/your teenager yearn for better sounding phones and when your kid starts begging you for the Senn HD650s dont complain.

Now I wouldnt consider myself to be a huge audiophile, but to give you some context, I have two hi fi systems, one worth £200 and the other worth £450, and I have tried a large number of headphones of different brands and prices (Ranging from about £5 to £200). SO, here's my review of the HD201's.

-Comfort

I bought this pair of headphones to use at my office, mainly because my other set of crappy No Fear headphones kind of snapped. I have actually owned these headphones before, but lost them not long after I had them, however I remember this headset being comfortable. You get a bit of padding on the inside of the headband which is thick enough to be comfortable resting on top of my head, and the earpads, although not particularly thick, are sufficiently comfortable too. The headphones sit on my head nicely and they do not crush my skull, but they are not loose either, and feel secure when on. The padding is obviously not going to be on par with more expensive headsets, however I could wear the HD201's for hours without them ever being a nuisance.

-Long Cable

Something of a good and bad thing. I would recommend using these headphones at home, or work, or generally somewhere that you will be still for a long time. The cable length can be too much to deal with, and makes these really fiddly to use on the move. You could use a cable tie to keep the wires tidy. Its can be good to have this cable length if you use them on a hard to reach PC port or musical instrument. The cable is pretty thin, and its roughly about 3 meters in length.

-Inexpensive

The headphones are very comfortable, however the other reason I bought a pair was due to the price.
