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,...

Great price & great deal


Worked quite well right out of the box. No Problems. I am really happy with these headphones. And for the price, you can't beat them with a stick.I recommend these headphones for everyone.

Good for the price.


In the early days I used mostly Sony headphones, some of which had decent bass along with clean highs, and then for most of the past decade I'd gone through 3 different generations of the Koss Pro35 Titanium headphones that all died through abuse or...

Good price. Both mini and full size plug connectors. Very comfortable to wear for hours. And very good mids to highs. Overall very good quality headphones especially for the price

The only lacking thing is that I've come from a long line of headphones I've been purchasing around this price point since I was a an adolescent and Sony called their portable CD players Discman rather than Walkman. And almost all of the headphones...

cable weirdness just past warranty


Got a great refurb deal on these and enjoyed them for the time they worked.

Made in Germany. Long cable. Unembarrassing looking

The cable near the plug-in went out leaving me with one ear of audio about two months in

Consumer review by:

Low cost, good sound


Definitely a worthwhile contender for decent isolating low cost moderately comfortable headphones.

The headphones are lightweight, low cost, decent sound and comfortable enough to wear all day. I use them at work to block outside noise and for this it works decently enough ; For the price, the sound quality is decent. I've had better sounding...

After a 12 hour day, even these get a bit uncomfortable, but come on, that's 12 hours of having them on almost constantly! :)

Oh well..


Sounded great, good price

If you have kids, a dog, a cat, or just clumsy, like me, by a better built model or brand. The cat and I knocked them off the desk a couple of times now only the right channel works. My fault but, they really should be able to take a little abuse

I bought it for $12 in 2010. I owned 2 of these. They are cheap but sturdy. Sound quality is just ok. Use it for gaming and on keyboard

a little uncomfortable after wearing it for over 2 hours
