Summary

''The HD201 has an 'over-the-ear', closed-back design that delivers outstanding attenuation of ambient noise, encouraging the wearer to become fully immersed in sound without undue distractions. This headphone features exceptionally smooth, natural, extended response. The HD201's low frequency extends to 21Hz and the HD215 to an amazing 12 Hz while both models perform to the upper limits of human hearing with ratings of 18kHz and 22kHz and deliver dynamic potential to spare for reproducing any musical style with real-world levels and impact, with SPL limits of 108dB and 112dB.''

Written on: 28/12/2010

I bought these headphones as a low priced replacement for my old, broken ones. I also look at product reviews before buying to see what other people thought / experienced with the product. The reviews for these headphones were generally favourable and were convincing enough to buy them, so I did.

The critical reviews of the Sennheiser HD201 headphones said that they lacked bass. Not the case at all. The amount of bass in these headphones totally relies on what you're using them for, whether it… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/12/2010

Those of you who are looking for great music and movie audio, I would highly recommend spending a few extra bucks. These headphones are definitely true to Sennheiser's reknown build quality and are very comfortable, but they lack all bass of any kind (In all honesty, they have zero bass). You'll certainly hear the mids and highs well, but thats only 2/3 of a good sound experience. Also, if a song has a lot of bass in it, these headphones will drown out the mids and highs, and sadly the bass… Read Full Review

“Sennheiser HD201 ”

Written on: 17/02/2010

Sennheiser HD201

Bought these for silent rehearsal with my electric upright bass. Was expecting something passable that would be better than cheap in-ears with a little more low-end, however these exceeded all expectations.

The bass response was great and very clear, even at quite high volumes. When mixing in an mp3 with the bass signal the clarity remained.

These are fantastic value for money, i got them for £13 delivered and am seriously impressed. They are very comfortable to wear… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2010

I found the Sennheiser HD201 headphones very comfortable to wear for long periods as the pads fit over the your ears very well. I use them mainly for listening to music on my ipod at home and the quality is more than enough for this. They perform fairly well at higher volume levels but do not go quite as loud as some of the more expensive models. The bass is very good at high volume and they are very clear at lower volumes as well. If you're looking for a low priced pair of good quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2009

I really wanted to spend 200 quid on a pair of headphones because I wanted the best. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be one manufacturer out there that makes a top-end pair that you can wear all day and not suffer excrutiating pain. These Sennheisers are perfect workhorse cans and I highly recommend them!… Read Full Review

These Sennheiser headphones are great value but I wouldn't recomend them to anyone who wants them for producing or for anyone who DJ's. They distort quite easily and aren't the loudest of headphones. Good value for the price thouhg if you are just listening to an mp3 player… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2008

The Sennheiser HD 201 are incredible headphones. I would heavily recommend them to anyone, no matter what you want them for. Brilliant sound quality, excellent for listening to music in car journeys, plugging into the PA to hear myself during band practise, and for sound checking at gigs.
Very comfortable, I often forget they are there. It is honestly like listening to brilliant quality live music. You feel as if you're there… Read Full Review

The Sennheiser HD 201 are fantastic headphones- I paid £17 for them but they'd still be worth it at £30. They are about as comfortable as headphones get, which makes them perfect for long journeys. They also have brilliant sound quality- not the best available, but the best you're going to get for this price… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2006 by rainiz4slugz (1 review written)

Very good sound quality; Sennheiser HD 201 are light weight and at 24 ohms play loud for portable devices; Compare favorably with my Sony 7506 studio monitors which produce a little more exaggerated bass but then these HD201's are just as the review at HeadRoom.com describe them. What a bargain !… Read Full Review
