This review is from: Sennheiser HD201S 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Hi-fi Headphone
Pros: Sound Quality _ Very good, flat response across entire frequency range. Not base-enhanced. Not tinny. What you hear is what you get.
Comfort _ Excellent. Lightweight. Comfortably padded. I have a fairly large head (hat size 7-5/8) and these adjust very well to my size.
Quality of Materials _ Average. A lot of plastic and vinyl, but that's too be expected in this price range.
Workmanship _ Very good attention to detail.
Durability _ I've owned these for four months so far. They've held up very well and I expect that they'll continue performing for years to come.
Cons: Noise Canceling _ Outside noise is somewhat reduced by the earmuff-style headphone, but not what I would call noise-canceling.
Hi-Fi Quality _ While the sound reproduction is very good for the price point, it falls short of being an audiophile experience to my ear. (Please don't expect these headphones to outperform $100+ headphones.)
Cord Length _ 10-foot cord length could be viewed as a plus or as a minus. For me, 6 feet would have been better.
Plain Appearance _ Nothing especially fancy about these headphones.
Portability _ Doesn't fold up, so they are not particularly portable. But then again, that's not what I purchased these for. I use earbuds to meet my portable needs.
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA 46" 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV TC-P46C2
Pros: Easy setup
Great picture quality, multiple choices for aspect ratios
2,000,000:1 contrast ratio
Excellent visibility from any viewing angle
Reasonable sound quality
No image streaking, excellent sports viewing
SD card input
Cons: No anti-glare coating
Single digital optical audio output limits sound options
Two HDMI ports limits number of external devices
CATS (auto-dimming) feature is more of a nuisance than a benefit
Other Thoughts: ... For general family viewing, this is a great entry level HDTV. Panasonic is a leader in the plasma television field and they didn't skimp on picture quality on this one.
... For audiophiles, you'll want external speakers - the internal speakers are good but not great.
... For technophiles and gamesters, you might be better off paying the extra bucks for a true 1080p set. Ditto for folks enraptured with extra hi-fidelity Blu-Ray movies.
... And for those folks that are easily distracted, go to your nearest showroom and compare the LCD's and LED's against the Plasma's before purchasing any Plasma TV.
... Do your homework and research the competition. I did and I'm very happy with my purchase.
