The Sennheiser HD 205 is one of the best headphones you can get out there for a decent price. I am not an audiophile or a serious sound specialist or something. But I do listen to music almost all the time of my life. Almost all kinda music like Rap, hip-hop, Rock ( my favourite ), Techno and almost all kinda music as long as it is good at keep you entertained. I also listen lot of Indian music, which are quite a feast of instruments and vocals.
The Sennheiser HD 205 does a wonderful job of immersing me in to world of music. I could listen to all the sounds clearly. The bass is so precise and good. I have other headphones and earphones. Also good external speaker setups. But whenever I wanna listen to music I use the Sennheiser HD 205 because everytime I listen from the Sennheiser HD 205, I feel so good.
First day I bought Sennheiser HD 205, I hated it so much coz I cant feel any bass. Also the sound quality was so bad. Feels like a cheap headphone. I thought I just lost a lot of money for these crappy headphone. Then after some weeks the headphones started to sound really good. Especially the quality of sound increased and bass became to sound pretty deep. And now everything is perfect as in perfect. Now I am so happy that I bought these headphones because the quality I get when I listen to these so perfect.
Also when you listen to music, especially a bit louder, these headphones wont hurt your ears. The bass is perfect for music and it is not overpowered. Even when listening to techno mixes, you could feel the base so strong and still wont hurt your ears.
When you listen to movies in Windows media player, I always turn on the SRS WoW effect. This will change the output of these headphones to a more bass oriented output. So you could enjoy a movie as a movie.
Noise cancellation of these headphones are super. And this one time I took these headphones for a trip on train to use with my laptop. After I put the headphones on my head, the surrounding noise actually went down. And when I started listening to music/Movies, I could not even hear a sound from my surroundings. These headphones do a good job of blocking outside noise. But even though it is a wonderful noise cancellation headphone, I would not recommend it for taking outside as it has this long 3m cord which is kind of annoying.
Bottom line is, these headphones are really good for music than it’s for movies.
1) Amazing sound quality 2) Wont hurt your ears due to overpowered bass 3) Nice build quality 4) Good noise cancellation 5) Can turn the volume up without hurting your ears. 6) Good price per performance ratio
1) It feels a little tight on the head when you wear it. 2) Long cord 3) Need some run time to achieve the full performace ( Burn in time or something)
I hope this review would be helpful those people who are still looking for a review from a regular user’s point for view.
