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,...

Sennheiser HD-201 headphones review

 

No, Pocket-Lint is not turning into the Sennheiser tribute site, the problem is that universal German rival Beyerdynamic has returned to the studio level of audio equipment, content to let Sennheiser carpet the portables market with the kind of spread...

The sound quality, the comfort, 3m cable lets you move around a room

dds bass but source needs own amplification; 3m cable and no take-up makes this a set for the home (competing with existing higher models)

For £17 on the street they're excellent for home listening, while the existing HD202s do the same job on the move for £3 less

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

Good for new users

 

The 9 foot cord is nice for mobility (although there are bluetooth earbuds and headphones at a similar price point). The ear cups fit my ears and head well, also the swivel mounts on the speakers are nice too

The cord broke after the first week and needs to be wiggled at the end of the cord so that you can hear anything

Worst Sounding Headphones Ever

 

With all the positive reviews that I read I had semi high hopes that this would be a decent replacement. Plugging them into my HTC Thunderbolt, HTC One, Hisense Sero 7, HP G7 Laptop, Home & Work PC's and even my RCA 5.1 Surround Sound setup (which...

They feel good on your head ; Sturdy construction

Mine sounded terrible connected to any audio devices I chose. If you're an audiophile then pass on these
