Sounds amazing...


So I've had these headphones for almost a year. I use them with my electronic drum kit, and the sound that these things produce at this price range is incredible. I hear all the highs, and all the lows. However, everything else about them is extremely...

Best Headphones for the Price


Honestly, if you are going to use this at a stationary location (like a desktop PC), look no further. If you are stepping up from being content with apple's standard headphones, then you will be absolutely appalled you went so long with sub par music...

Absolutely FANTASTIC sound overall ; The bass is booming, which is surprising considering it has no power source other than the audio jack ; Highs are crisp and clear throughout ; Still sounds great with standard onboard PC sound

Ok, the only thing I could see wrong with these headphones is if you want to wear these out and about, and this for two reasons ; 1. The cord is cumbersomely long for walking about ; 2. It looks a little weird. Like a reviewer before me posted, it does...

Good HD Headphones for the Price


These headphones are focused on quality so give it quality sound.

Great Sound Quality, long cord, Perfect for the office and home use. The bass in the 203's are much more vamped than the 202's. I see some reviewers stating that the headset is not comfortable; it is comfortable, they most likely are not wearing it...

The cord does seem thin and not very durable. The cord has no retractable cord like the 202's but its noting a twisty tie cant cure. The way the headset fits is not for everyone

Great headphones

Great headphones. Great sound. Long cord

The long cord could also be a con, depends on what you use it for

Consumer review by:



I am no sound engineer, but I have used several pairs of headphones in this price range. And I do not like the ways these sound. They were great for a few weeks, but quickly deteriorated to having the sound quality of cheap earbuds. The speakers...

They produce sound ; Some sound isolation ; The ear-cup attachment to the band is clever. They pop out without breaking and you can just pop them back in if you sit on them

Cord is thin, and I just ran over with my chair and cut it in half ; Uncomfortable if you have a big head ; Small earcups. (depth and diameter)

Sennheiser HD203 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Headphones - DJ/MP3 closed lightweight Headphones


Long cord

The sound from these headphones sounds like it's coming from a distance to the right and in front of me, almost like if I were to put speakers up to my ears. The sound is very dull and there is little to no bass. Also, I don't know what kind of ears...

Great sound!


Started out with some logitech live chats, sounded terribad, then I bought the sennheiser hd201's but they were way to quiet without an headphone amp. So i returned those and bought these, and With this prices, you get the performance of 150$+...

Great sound, Blocks outside noise decent, So crisp and clear. Bass is perfect

funky look, but I use them at home/ + Im good looking so it doesn't matter

Good sound bad look


Sennheiser makes great products but just happened to lack there normal talent this time.

The headphones sound fantastic. and its nice that the cord is super long for gaming or watching tv

The ear peace on these headphones are very small, making them uncomfortable as all get out.. thats the reason i went back to my old Sennheiser headphones. they are also really dumb looking.. they look as if u are wearing a cheap four year olds tiara
