What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sennheiser HD 201 Closed Dynamic Stereo headphones for Studio, Performance Live and Djs - Black
  • The sound quality is decent. Not hi-fi but for general purpose monitoring they'll do fine.
  • You can catch the fine notes but won't get deep bass out of these.
  • Has a very clean sound for such an inexpensive headphone.
  • The headphones sound great. They sound very good and i recommend them.
  • These are fine for listening to music or working on the computer in a quiet room, but if you need more volume, better try something else.
  • The volume is also very weak. Even at full volume I have to press the headphones to my ears to be able to hear.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser HD 201 Closed Dynamic Stereo headphones for Studio, Performance Live and Djs - Black
  • Considering the price, these are great headphones. Comfortable, balanced, good closing.
  • They are durable, comfortable to wear and easy to clean. The sound is clear and crisp.
  • For the price these phones have a decent build quality and sound pretty good. The cord is very long so not great for portable listening but perfect for home.
  • They work great and there is no problem with the headphones at all. I like that the chord has great length.
  • The worst thing is the cord. It is really annoying, it's REALLY long, about 10 feet.
Sennheiser HD 206 Stereo Headphone
  • These were a great price and work for my needs. the cord was very long, the sound is great and they are comfortable for me to use when using them at my desktop.
  • The sound is good. I really like them, they work well for me, and at a low cost.
  • I was amazed at the quality for the price. They really are a great pair of headphones for listening to music, YouTube videos.
  • Awesome headphones for the price: comfy, nice long cable, amazing crystal-clear sound.
  • The 10 foot long undetachable cable and a design that doesn't include in-line controls or fold or collapse do not make these a good travel companion
