Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones

These Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones are great headphones overall for someone who isn't interested in spending a ton of money on headphones. It has great treble and bass levels (enough so that you can tell its there but not so much that you get a headache after an hour). The design is sleek and not bulky like some other headphones out there.

I have a slightly larger head size than other people so I find that these sennheiser headphones are rather small for me. I have to set them to their largest size and even then, the headphones press down on my head, however, the well cushioned headband helps to offset the discomfort. Also, the earpieces are smaller than usual so if I wear them for more than 2 hours at a time, my ear will be slightly chafed and sensitive. Also, the mateirial the covers are made out of makes it rather inefficient at canceling out sound. If I wear them, I can still clearly hear people talking around me. The last part about these Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones that I'm not really thrilled about is its 10 ft cord. I being a person who takes these to school with me and everywhere else practically find that this is very annoying. The headphones do have a plastic clip that you can wind excess cord around to shorten its length however its not very secure. If I move even a little,the whole roll of wire comes undone.

Besides that, it is a great set of headphones. It does not seal in sound very well so even at 50% sound on my ipod, people will still complain about being able to hear my music.

For devoted techno and metal enthusiasts, I would not recommend this product due to its tendancy to crackle at higher pitches and volumes.

Anyway, these Sennheiser HD 202 Headphones  were completley worth the $30 I paid for them. I've been using them for 4 monthes so far and there haven't been any defects with the product.
