Sennheiser HD 202 II
Advantages: good sound quality and bass, comfortable to wear
Disadvantages: cord length,
I have gone through quite a few headphones but these were the first ones I have bought from the Sennheiser brand. They are a well known and quite well respected brand when it comes to headphones especially. These headphones come in the middle range end of the price scale and cost around the £25-30 mark.
Are they any good?
These headphones are in the Closed-back-on-ear stereo style. They are lightweight, although seem to look quite chunky with a headband which provides cushioning as you place them over your head. The ear cups are also cushioned which provide an overall comfortable feel to the product. The colour is all black with the Sennheiser logo on the side of the ear cups.
The noise cancellation is very good and after putting them on everything else can seem to be quieter. In terms of durability they seem to be very good so far. I have had them for around 6 months and they have not shown any real signs of wear and tear despite quite heavy use.
They are better than in ear headphones for a number of reasons including noise cancellation, improved sound quality and also they are more comfortable to wear with cushioning. The sound quality is very good and comes across as both loud and clear with nice bass. They also have Powerful neodymium magnets and lightweight diaphragms .Not totally sure what these are but they allow high sound levels.
The cord length is one slight problem issue. It is very long and although you can use a cable tidy device to tie it up to shorten the length it is a negative issue.
If you are looking for a decent pair of mid range headphones to replace in ear ones then these are definitely worth a shot. They cost less than £30 and are a good option in terms of style, durability and functionality. It may be designed with Djs in mind but is great for even the everyday user and listener of music.
