I bought these to replace a set of old HD 435's that had suffered from a faulty audio jack. I can honestly say that the HD205s are easily comparable in quality to the old 435s.

So far the sound quality seems quite reasonable, as standard they provide a fairly crisp sound that lets you hear all the little details in your favourite music tracks. When paired with an amp or a digital equaliser the quality is simply excellent.

From what I can tell, the build quality is fairly substantial, with none of the plastic parts feeling too brittle or fragile, the cups seem rather solid and don't suffer from any rattling or unwanted vibrations like the old 435's sometimes had. The padding on the headphones is good enough so that they aren't uncomfortable to wear, the head strap padding is certainly more plentiful than on some older Sennheiser headphones.

The only problems I can see with this product is that the cups are actually quite small and even with my 'average' sized ears they took a while to stretch to fit them. I've found that the occasional song can sound quite tinny with these headphones, although this is nothing that a quick fiddle with any equalisation methods can't fix. I'm also concerned about the cable as it seems quite thin, whereas other users have stated that it doesn't seem to tangle as easy as other cables, I'm currently not entirely convinced. If it weren't for these problems i'd give the headphones 5 stars, but on the plus side these were only £40, a similar price that I paid for my old HD435s, so I hardly feel cheated out of my money.

The sound quality is great but how is it possible to appreciate it after two hours when your ears start to hurt and go red? The other reviews state that the headphones are too tight, and this is very true.

I would give less stars if not the sound quality but if you're an adult with average sized head I do not recommend, I thought I could stretch them or something but they were really tight anyway. Had to return, impossible to enjoy music when your ears hurt after short use.

Great headphones with great sound quality. Really how light they are - can barely tell I have them on. They do a great job of blocking out almost all background noise so I can concentrate.

As for the comments stating the headphones ate too tight, I can't agree there. Granted, I've only had these a few days, but at the moment the fit is absolutely perfect. They are very comfy to wear.

It does the job for the price. I use it mainly for mixing in a bedroom setup. I have this headphone for a long time, but after a while the cable broke (my fault as I did not take good care of it). I bought a new one as I am happy with it. Just one thing the cable cannot be replaced, you cannot buy it separately that's the only negative thing.

Brilliant sound quality, a little tight around the ears though.
