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.

Sennheiser HD228 Black Headphones [Review]

 

Underperforming headphones that are overpriced

Lightweight design, decent mid range performance

Poor bass response, flimsy build, too expensive for the performance on offer

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Quite good

 

I bought a pair of these, and a pair of HD238s after accidentally destroying my PX100s on a flight. The HD238s are a little brighter, and have a little less bass than the HD228s, but I planned to use the HD228s (because of the closed back design) at...

Outstanding bass response (unlike the PX200), excellent music reproduction

Not as bright as the Sennheiser HD238, or PX100

SENNHEISER HD228 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Stereo Headphone

 

I can't say much about Sennheiser's other products. I guess I just figured you couldn't go wrong with a German-made product and Sennheiser had been recommended by an acquaintance, but these are the absolute worst pair of earphones I have ever owned....

One of the reasons I invested in these headphones was because they're not half as hideous as many of the other choices out there

I tend to wear headphones because I want to keep my music to myself when I ride public transportation or suffer through a fourteen-hour trans-Pacific flight. These headphones are louder than my speakers when attached to a computer and nearly inaudible...

Great sound, but gets dirty easily!

 

I use it every day for several months. Before I had headphones that isolate completely, such as earplugs (I don't know how it's called). Even if a headphone is bigger, the sound is really better. ...
