Sennheiser HD205 II DJ Style review

 

Sennheiser is usually associated with words such as "elite" and "expensive," but you can now add "budget-conscious" to that list as well. The Sennheiser HD 205 II DJ Headphones ($80 list price, $49 to $59 online) are part of the company's HD 200 series...

The Sennheiser HD 205 II DJ Headphones are comfortable to wear, even for long-term use, and their bass is exceptional for budget headphones. Noise leakage is minimal, and they shield ambient noise very effectively. The price is affordable, and a...

Midrange response is weak. The hard plastic design creaks after moderate use and the headset doesn't fold for storage. The attached single-sided cable may be too long for portable use, and there is no way of replacing the cable.

While the affordable Sennheiser HD 205 II DJ Headphones provide good bass, natural sound, and capable performance, critical listeners may find them lacking acoustic flair.

Sennheiser HD 205: It Sports a Swivel Ear Cup

 

Headphones best suited for DJs

Too tight (may be uncomfortable), cord not replaceable, a bit expensive

There is not really much of a bundle with these, and it is often na ve to expect anything bundled along with headphones. But since these are meant for DJs, they come with a carry pouch and a gold-plated 3.5mm to 6.3 mm stereo adapter jack. The rich and...

"Great if you give them a chance"

 

Firstly, these are a great set of headphones. After my Dre Studio's broke, I needed a new pair for everyday bus/train usage, as well as time at home when I chill on the laptop. I tried these alongside the Sony MDR-V55's and XB600's as well as the Dre...

Great price for what they give

Don't fold up

Great price for what they give Great Bass, Good Midtone and Trebel response Comfortable once a set in period has occured Rotatable right earcup Comes with leather styled case Extra long cable for home amp usage or DJ usage Durable plastic outer layer

Don't fold up Needs a minor set in period Long cable (3 Meters) may be an annoyance (but this can be resolved by binding and tying the cable)

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Extremly uncomfortable. Mediocre sound.

 

Absolutely do not buy. Sennheiser HD205 feels like Chinese water torture - after few minutes, it is not big deal at all, but such discomfort becomes true torture after 20-30 minutes. Those headphones are designed to clamp around your head with...

Company logo.

After 5 minutes of testing I had to stop using those headphones as they are extremely uncomfortable.
