Sennheiser HD 201 Headset Review

 

Save money and enjoy sound quality and comfort with Sennheiser HD201!

As with the other headphones presented on the market by Sennheiser, the Sennheiser HD 201 headsets are very effective when compared to their price. Their main pluses are the comfort levels and the sound, as well as their vintage design, which makes...

While the sound is perfect in general, it seems they leak some sound at times and the bass is weaker than with other such devices. This makes the Sennheiser HD201 headphones great for gaming and watching movies, but improper for listening to music,...

Cheap

I couldn't really find something bad about the HD 201.

The HD 201 headphones from the house of Sennheiser are not the most revolutionary cans ever created, but their price and tonal balance make them a boon for the casual listener. They may sound underwhelming compared with boomier headphones with multiple...

Sennheiser HD 201 G4ME

 

These casual headphones are tuned for gaming.

Excellent for gaming, Excellent soundstage performance, Comfortable, 3m long cable

Weak bass and overall mid-range reproduction, Lots of audio leakage, Can't be driven well by many MP3 players

Consumer review by: Zachary J. (newegg.com)

You can't get better in the pricerange

 

-Highs are insanely clear at this pricepoint -Mids are somewhat recessed, but again, far better than one would expect at the pricepoint -Bass is BALANCED, don't buy if you want heavy bass

As mentioned in Pros, the bass profile is very balanced, these are designed for accurate sound reproduction and Sennheiser cans tend to sound bright compared to competitiors. For a basshead who doesn't care about sound quality, jump for Skullcandy or...

Good while they last

 

I have had to replace these a few times over the years but for the price the sound is quite worth it.

Don't last a long as I think they should had to take one egg off for that

Great pair of affordable headphones

 

These go on sale periodically. You might want to wait for the sale price if you're looking for a super-good value. I paid twenty plus ten for my pair.

I really like these. I've been a fan of Sennheisers for literally decades, and these don't disappoint. They're comfortable to wear and sound really excellent to my (admittedly aged) ears -- very crisp sound. The long 3-meter cord is very convenient for...

I have relatively large ears, and it would be nice if the earcuffs were maybe a few millimeters larger, but that's literally splitting hairs :-)

Great Set of Headphones

 

Good sound, fit's over the ears, comfortable. I use these all day long and my ears don't hurt like on the ear kinds do. I listen to them using my smartphone (mostly pods casts) and they are great.

Cord is really long but I just keep it bundled up near the jack. My phone uses the cord as a FM antenna and for some reason the signal comes in fuzzy. Haven't tried other headphones yes cause it's a new phone.
