Sennheiser Circumaural (Silver) review

 

The $30 Sennheiser HD 201 headphones are a great value aimed at the infrequent user who's simply looking to upgrade from poor-quality stock earphones without spending a ton. The HD 201s are far from audiophile quality and lack the low-end oomph of...

The Sennheiser HD 201 headphones are very comfortable to wear, and the tough construction will last over long-term use. Noise leakage is at a minimum, and the overall sound is balanced as well.

The HD 201 headphones' cable may be too long for portable use, and the set doesn't come with a protective pouch for storage. Natural bass is lacking, and the maximum volume output is lower than most aftermarket headphones in its category.

Though the ultra-affordable Sennheiser HD 201 headphones provide natural sound and capable performance, commuters may find the low volume output an issue when listening to music in highly trafficked environments.

Sennheiser HD 201 HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser HD 201 are below-average headphones that feel cheaply made and have an unexciting sound. They only passively isolate, which lets noise seep into your audio in loud environments and on noisy commutes. However, they will remain stable on...

Stable fit. ; lightweight, decently comfortable design. ; Low leakage.

Poor isolation. ; Flimsy, all-plastic build. ; Bass lacking sound reproduction. ; Noticeable harmonic distortion. ; Bass delivery varies significantly across users. Sensitive to glasses.

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

 

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 making you fall in love with your record collection again, these Sennheisers are a remarkable feat and the “if” design award is by no means excessive hype or marketing flannel, they really are that comfortable.

  (Rating Hidden)

The Sennheiser HD201s are very reasonably priced over-ear headphones. There aren't many features, but if they can deliver good sound they could be a real bargain. Read on to find out how they got on in our rigorous lab testing.

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...
