Sennheiser HD 238
Advantages: Great quality for the value
Disadvantages: Quite chunky
Sennheiser is obviously a very prestigious brand when it comes to audio equipment, especially headphones. Even at the relatively low price to what most good Sennheiser headphones cost, these do not lose the quality with it.
They provide clear distinction between high frequencies and low bass frequencies even in the most distorted of songs. Some songs can overpower headphones, in particular smaller in ear headphones which rattle when the bass is too strong which can get annoying very quickly.This is not the case with these. You get a crisp sound from both earphones when in stereo and in mono versions of songs.
The headphones cup the ears with a soft pad so after a few minutes you hardly notice they are attached to your head due to the comfy adding which also aids in cancelling out background noise if you are in a noisy environment. These do not however have active noise cancellation.
They can be manually adjusted to fit your head comfortably and have the same padded cushion at the top of the headphone so it rests nicely. The cable provided with headphones is of good quality and is approximately 1 metre long. You can also get an extra extension cable which adds another metre on if you so wish without any interference to the quality of the sound.
Aesthetically they are relatively large and chunky for portable earphones but if style is not an issue for you then these are great.
The HD 238's balance both cost and quality in a very appealing way so for any audiophiles, this is a good value pair of headphones which won't disappoint when it comes to listening to your songs. A great buy which is well worth the money.
Summary: Great pair of headphones
