Headphones

The HD 205-II provides studio-grade detail and frequency response coupled with brilliant shielding of ambient noise. The rotatable ear cup as well as the single-sided cable makes them a professional companion for DJ's and home recording. Unlike competitive models, the earcup rotates while maintaining earpad contact on your head for stability and comfort without leaking noise into adjacent microphones. The HD 205-II comes with a convenient protective pouch and locking 1/4in. (6.3mm) adapter for storage and transportation.

3 out of 5 eggsPainfully good sound

Pros: Sound is what is expected of Sennheiser. This is my 5th pair of sennys and others in this price range (+/-10) just either feel cheap, or dont sound as good. These sound very good and clear compared to, well, just about anything my wife has been using for her music editing for her students. The rotatable ear cuff was a key selling point. I dont know how often I sit there with one ear cuff on and one on my temple.

Cons: According to the Government of 'Merica. I have what is considered a medium sized head. My helmet issued to me in the marines, medium. 7 1/4" Dress Blues cover. So for an average priced headset to cause me 'Peine forte et dure' when wearing them, its just a bad manufacturing job. The headband can be adjusted, but not enough to keep the pressure from causing my temporal joints to pop like my knuckles do.
Circumaural - HA. Not even close. My ears (I measured them just because of this) have been called alien ears because people think they're small. From the top to the bottom of my dangling, not attached, lobe is only 2 1/8th inches.
For something like this to be considered circumaural is again just bad form by Sennheiser. They need to step up their manufacturing game again or be dethroned as one of the best of headphone manufacturers and fade into obscurity.
To be honest I'd skip past these particular ones and try for something with a larger cup and a wider headband.

4 out of 5 eggsTIght Around Head

Pros: Very good sound quality for the price. Isolating cups which surrounds you with sound, be careful if you have kids you might not hear them calling in the other room. Extra long phono cord, and a carrying case is included.

Cons: It does get tight around the headband, and will start to make your ears feel sore after a few hours. But the tightness dissipates after prolonged use. After I broke them in, they are snug on my head.

The 'dj' label isn't quite accurate. While the right cup does adjust for one ear monitoring, both cans do not swivel, thus preventing monitoring by the right ear only. If you dj monitor with your right ear to beatmatch, this is not the product for you.

Other Thoughts: As long as you are not using this to dj, they are good for casual listening. The swivel headset is only on the right side, and it only folds a little bit. That's the biggest issue I had with this model. It shouldn't be advertised as a dj headset if it doesn't have full functionality.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet cans for the price!

Pros: Great quality for the price. Outside noise is pretty much eliminated (I crank the volume always) Sound doesn't bleed out.. They are comfortable to wear for hours(See other thoughts below).

Cons: There are not any cons. For the price these headphones are sweet!

Other Thoughts: I see people are having comfort issues. Here's some tips...

If ya can't fit em on your big grape(like me)? Get a blow drier and gently heat the crown of the headband. Pull out gently and hold. As it cools it will remain in that shape. It doesn't take alot of heat and it doesn't take alot of push/pull.

Also, I use electrical tape on the wires to reinforce them. I do this with all my headphones. That will insure many years of use w/o worrying about yanking the wires out. My kids are hell on headphones. In full disclosure I have tripped over the wire a couple times myself...lol...I have ran the chair over the wire more than a few times as well. If you follow my advice, you'll have some sweet headphones that are comfy and nearly indestructible. If you take a little time and care...You'll barely notice the tape.

Sennheiser is a terrific brand. So no matter what you choose, you'll get a good value and quality on your buy. I have a half dozen pair of different models.

I am a broadcaster/producer and these are solid headphones for any of my needs. I have them on my head for hours and they are fine for that duration. On hot summer days I just take them off a little more often. But you'll sweat no matter what over the ear phones you wear.

I hope this helps someone.

5 out of 5 eggsSennheiser Quality

Pros: -Solid bass
-Good mids
-Clear highs
-Rotatable earcup is useful for wearing public
-Durable
-Decent noise-isolation

Cons: -A bit tight for the first week, but you get used to it
-Earcups are bit small so after 1-2 hours your ear get a bit sore. If you have big ears I would not recommend these for you.

Other Thoughts: A great starter pair of headphones. Nothing to brag about, but for the cost they are very good.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Painful Sound

Pros: Good quality sound with the lows and highs (just as good as any other over the ear headphones)

Cons: -After using these headphones for about 1-2 hours my ears get really uncomfortable.
-This is due to the ear cups being too small for my ears

Other Thoughts: Talking with some people they seem to disagree about the cups being uncomfortable after a while, this may only be me, or people with big ears (but i don't think i have big ears)

5 out of 5 eggsBrilliant!

Pros: Having been musicly trained and working in live sound for 7 years I can, without hesitation say these headphones are amazing! They seal brilliantly and block out sound as good as most sound canceling headphones. I have been using them everyday for almost 5 years and outside of scuffs on the outside nothing has changed.

Cons: I have bigger ears so the tops of the earcups sometimes squish the very top of my ears. If you have this issue just give the cups a little wiggle and it will fix it.

I have noticed that the wires are starting to degrade at the plug, but for 5 years of constant use I'm fine with it!

Other Thoughts: for the price nothing is better!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely wonderful!

Pros: -Good Bass response
-Good Highs and Mids
-Good "everything"?

Cons: There are none. Wish I got these before I made a remix I made, because after I made it, and I used these babies to see what it "truly" sounded like, whoa. I hate to admit, my remix sounded not so good as I thought. Hahaha...but it made me a better producer of my solo material so now I know more of what to do in terms if EQing.

Other Thoughts: I see the other negative reviews here and obviously someone didn't realize these headphones are meant for "Music Production". I consulted a lot of remixes and artists about these headphones and they all agreed for me to get them. Even my mentor who taught me music. I HIGHLY recommend these headphones, but of course never limit yourself to just "one". But still, these are amazing headphones for a amazing price and great monitors for your music. So stop doubting, and buy them! I did and I love them! No regrets.

4 out of 5 eggsDubious Reviews

Pros: Great sound for the price, good build quality, decent sound attenuation, swiveling ear cup allows for single ear monitoring. I found the earbads quite comfortable and only produced sweat over extended use. Lightweight.

Cons: Better options out these for this price range. Headband design doesn't allow many different sizes of heads to wear comfortably. It's also prone to slipping off due to lack of tension in the band over time, especially for larger heads. Top pad could be a little thicker.

Other Thoughts: I'm slightly puzzled by the negative comments about the lack of low end on these headphones. In the technical data, it clearly states a low end frequency of 14hz. This product was never meant for low end. It wasn't even advertised to have low end response. All of the comments comparing this to some cheap Sony or Panasonic garbage is just rubbish. Disliking something is fine, but it's just blatantly misleading to insinuate that a $10 earbud is better.

Pros: price

Cons: uncomforable, weak sound performance

Other Thoughts: Make an alternate choice.....this is one case where the Sennheiser name DOES NOT insure high quality perofrmance.
