Well to start off these are constructed pretty well so they should last a while. The sound quality is decent but I would not recommend them for recording applications. If you want some headphones to listen to music with from a CD player or MP3 player these should be adequate. I found them to be decent at best nothing special. They sound a bit flat and the low and high signals are nothing impressive. These are good middle of the road listening headphones.

Wow these headphones were a disappointment. I moved into an apartment and I wanted headphones for my guitar that wouldn't break the bank. Now they are very comfortable, but they sound awful. Read the other reviews, most agree. The weak part for these is the low end. The highs aren't that great, but it's the lows that are really noticeably lacking. Still, they're only 29.99. You get what you pay for. I will definitely be upgrading from these.

Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

Bass? what bass? these things have just about no bass what so ever, just lots and lots of treble. There durable and comfy, but the audio quality was bad. Terrible at monitoring guitar, its just all treble and nothing else. There not good for just casual listening, because again its all treble and mids. But they are good for listening to people talking, like watching youtube or something. When its just people talking, they sound really good, but when it comes to music and recording there terrible. If you want a cheap multi purpose pair of headphones for casual listening, recording, etc. I suggest spending a little more and just getting a pair of AKG 44s.

    Good for the money.

    By Andrew

    from Ohio, Columbus

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    There are in fact better headphones, but my goal was cost and comfort. For the price, these are exceptionally comfortable headphones. If you can handle one notch lower sound quality, and want a good price for a comfortable pair of headphones, these are it. Speed of delivery from Guitarcenter is excelent.

    failed me.

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    These headphones did me well, however after months of continuously plugging and unplugging the audio jack came completely off. Shame. couldn't buy another set for months and had to mix on apple headphones.

    Perfect For a Headphone Amp with EQ

    By Marshall Such

    from DFW, TS

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    Totally surprised by these $30 wonders! Usually buy the Sony Pros ($99) for studio but times are tight, you know? Surprisingly comfortable and comparing to Sony(s), very close in frequency response. Bottom end is a tad weak but with a headphone amp like the Behringer I've got, you just dial in a little "boom" and you're there. I'm happy. :)

    Not for home recording

    By William Edwards

    from Detroit, Michigan

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    These headphones are pretty bad. Poor sound quality, low output, they do not isolate well while recording. 'Closed'?!?!? Nope. If you record vocals with these guys, you will find the backing track bleeding out of the headphones and into the mic. Do not buy....Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones are junk!

    GREAT FOR BASIC USE

    By Joe Wisdom

    from Tempe Arizona

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    I bought these to connect to my computer to use while listening to the computer audio when I don't want to use the speaker system. These headphones fulfill that function perfectly. Very light weight and can't imagine requiring a longer cord. Excellent value for the price.

    The Best For The Money...

    By Carlton Buehrer

    from Longboat Key, Fl

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    I already had a pair of these that I use mostly with my G-Dec 3/30 practice amp at home. Bought them about a year and a half ago and, up to this point, they've worked flawlessly. Sure, the output isn't studio, not advertised/priced as such, but they do sound surprisingly good for the sale price set of headphones. Sound quality is way more than adequate for practice or casual listening on our desk/laptops, tablets, and cells, etc. Got a second set for my wife to use with her Samsung Galaxy S II to replace the buds - and to stay away from my set. Sturdy, dependable, great sounding headphones that do a good job of keeping the ambient noise at bay. The adapter's a nice touch, too.

    >An absolutely, completely, and utterly exceptional set of Headphones<

    By Eric Bartlett

    from Goldsboro, NC

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    My Black Friday gift I bought for myself arrived today. A combination of Pandora, the quality of the sound produced by the set, and a Dr. Dre Beats headphone commercial pushed me over the edge to write this post. - The first thing tangible thing I noticed when I opened the box was the weight of the set. These are an overall very light and wearable set of headphones with a surprisingly durable construction. Wearability: Check. The next thing great thing is the bass response and highs this set made. Note: I am not a tone-deaf person and I like to think that I can discern a smooth sound from distortion. I was thrown back after I correlated in my mind the price and the sound quality when listening to them. Sound Quality: Check. Something else I wanted to put out witch may be an important trait to some and less to others is external noise reduction. I cranked up my 1100 watt home stereo system to maximum output and I literally could not hear a single sound from the speakers around me when I had the headphones on and functioning. Ambient Nose Cancellation: Double Check.
