5 out of 5 eggsBest Headphones for the Price

Pros: -Absolutely FANTASTIC sound overall
-The bass is booming, which is surprising considering it has no power source other than the audio jack
-Highs are crisp and clear throughout
-Still sounds great with standard onboard PC sound

Cons: Ok, the only thing I could see wrong with these headphones is if you want to wear these out and about, and this for two reasons:
1. The cord is cumbersomely long for walking about
2. It looks a little weird. Like a reviewer before me posted, it does look a little like a tiara, haha.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, if you are going to use this at a stationary location (like a desktop PC), look no further. If you are stepping up from being content with apple's standard headphones, then you will be absolutely appalled you went so long with sub par music quality. A word of warning though. You probably won't leave your seat until you've gone through every song in your collection twice while listening through these headphones :)

4 out of 5 eggsGood HD Headphones for the Price

Pros: Great Sound Quality, long cord, Perfect for the office and home use. The bass in the 203's are much more vamped than the 202's. I see some reviewers stating that the headset is not comfortable; it is comfortable, they most likely are not wearing it correctly. The cup should be around your ear and the top of the headphones are towards the front of your face, not directly on the top of your head. I also see some reviews on the headset "cracking, or popping" sounds, this is most likely your player/music file. I've heard the cracking and I've listened to youtube music video's and head the popping; when I listen to the same song in my .mp3 or .flac its flawless no popping what-so-ever.

Cons: The cord does seem thin and not very durable. The cord has no retractable cord like the 202's but its noting a twisty tie cant cure. The way the headset fits is not for everyone.

Other Thoughts: These headphones are focused on quality so give it quality sound.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Very nice sound -- excellent range and discrimination. Fit well on all in our family (all on the big side head-wise), and good ambient sound reduction. Light, comfortable. And did I mention great sound? Includes 1/4" jack adapter too.

Cons: Not really a con - the styling is a little different, but not at all bad. It grows on you.

Other Thoughts: The long (10 ft) cord is to facilitate them acting as monitor phones during recording as well as regular listening. I just added a velcro cord wrap to keep the extra length under control when not needed.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible.

Pros: They produce sound.
Some sound isolation.
The ear-cup attachment to the band is clever. They pop out without breaking and you can just pop them back in if you sit on them.

Cons: Cord is thin, and I just ran over with my chair and cut it in half.
Uncomfortable if you have a big head.
Small earcups. (depth and diameter)

Other Thoughts: I am no sound engineer, but I have used several pairs of headphones in this price range. And I do not like the ways these sound.
They were great for a few weeks, but quickly deteriorated to having the sound quality of cheap earbuds. The speakers crack at moderate volume levels. The earcups are to small for me, I couldn't wear them for long periods of time because they would push my ears toward my head. The padding is not soft, so it doesn't conform to your head.
I would not recommend these to anyone. $50 isn't very much for headphones, but there are much better options in this price range. Sony studio monitoring would be my vote, or maybe some high quality earbuds. Just avoid these, sennheiser is known for their higher end models. They seem to produce terrible products on the low end.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat headphones

Pros: Great headphones, Sound beautiful For the price i got them for!

Cons: Wish it came with a cord holder or something to hold the excess cord.

Other Thoughts: May not look good to some but they look fine to me, Only is awkward to wear if you wear them for hours on end though which is not really recommended in the first place.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Headphones

Pros: -Range
-Construction and Design
-Noise Canceling is about 60%

Cons: -None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: These headphones are really good. I moved up from the HD201s which I owned from 2006. They still work but are getting old.

I was very impressed with these cans. First off, Sennheiser prides itself on clarity and range. Not huge bass or unnatural sound.

I listen to Oldies, Classic / ModernRock, Electronica, Country and the Blues.

All of the genres are different and the 203 respects it. I am hearing parts of songs I have never heard even with my 201s.

Listen to Sports Talk Radio with them and they are still good too. Very clear and crisp sounding voices.

If you want to have a beauty contest go buy a dress and call it day. If you want Cans that are great value for money and sound sick, buy these. But these and you will not be disappointed, rock on!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Long cord

Cons: The sound from these headphones sounds like it's coming from a distance to the right and in front of me, almost like if I were to put speakers up to my ears. The sound is very dull and there is little to no bass. Also, I don't know what kind of ears these were designed to fit, but they certainly aren't human. They're the most uncomfortable and awkward thing I've ever had on my head. I have a five dollar pair of junk headphones from an office supply store that are all around better than these.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound!

Pros: Great sound, Blocks outside noise decent, So crisp and clear. Bass is perfect

Cons: funky look, but I use them at home/ + Im good looking so it doesn't matter.

Other Thoughts: Started out with some logitech live chats, sounded terribad, then I bought the sennheiser hd201's but they were way to quiet without an headphone amp. So i returned those and bought these, and With this prices, you get the performance of 150$+ headphones for 50 buckaroos.. not bad. I plan on buying a couple of these just incase they stop making them soon.

2 out of 5 eggsGood sound bad look

Pros: The headphones sound fantastic. and its nice that the cord is super long for gaming or watching tv.

Cons: The ear peace on these headphones are very small, making them uncomfortable as all get out.. thats the reason i went back to my old Sennheiser headphones. they are also really dumb looking.. they look as if u are wearing a cheap four year olds tiara.

Other Thoughts: Sennheiser makes great products but just happened to lack there normal talent this time.
