Sennheiser HD 228 review

 

The packaging for these on-ear headphones touts explosive bass, but you can have too much of a good thing. While the full range of frequencies was properly reproduced and detailed, it was almost overwhelmed by a ferocious low-end – much like leaving a...

Comfortable and clear sounding, but the huge amount of bass is an acquired taste.

Good Sound for a Lightweight Headphone

 

Warm sound with good base response. A good lightweight headphone if you can get it at a bargain price, as it\'s not worth the list price.

Great little headphones with big sound.

 

I am a legally blind man over 50. I use these Sennheiser headphones to listen to my audio books. I get a clean crisp sound with plenty of bass. They are comfortable enough to wear for long periods, which is a plus when it comes to listening to audio...

Sennhesier does it again!

 

I wanted some over-the-ears headphones as a option to my earbuds, and I am happy with the Sennheiser HD 228 as my choice. Very comfortable, good sound and just enough bass boost for my taste. A great buy for the money!
