Pros: Excellent Sound quality, Decent Bass, lengthy cable

Cons: at maximum volumes, it does leak sound outside and screams a bit..

I have had this for a couple of weeks now. My first Senn Can. Spent a lot of time browsing forums and reviews before i got this one and all i can say is , it was worth the read. As far as the cans, these are definately value for money considering the other  branded cans with an expensive tag. I got this in India for 2100 ruppes which is around 38$. I have read that these do come under 25$ but this is the best i could get in India. The sound quality-decent mids, bass and the whole experience is pleasant and punchy. At maximum volume, it does scream a bit(depends on the genre), but i can bet that one need not tune-up to max volumes all the time. I listen to all...

Senn HD202

Posted

Pros: Value, SQ for the $, relative comfort

Cons: Overlong cord, not good for long periods

The value on these is just incredible. I'll be the first to admit that my headphone knowledge is not the greatest, but it's 7 months in and I'm still surprised by these phones, which are still working perfectly. The design is simple and relatively comfortable, even for glasses wearers. (I currently wear pretty thick plastic frames too.) The isolation is not bad but outside sounds are still clearly noticeable. This is also a reason for these being not the best choice for activities because eventually the sweat and buildup will make you want to slip them off quickly. Comfort is great for the first 20 minutes to an hour, but after that there is a buildup of overall tightness that...

You're better off with the HD201

Posted

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Uncomfortabe, doesn't sound all to good

I couldn't recommend these cans with the Sennheiser HD201 costing about the same and far better cans costing not much more. I couldn't wear these for too long since they were tight. I tried leaving them in between a few books to try and spread them out and it didn't seem to work. On top of that they didn't really sound all too good. The bass bleed into the mids and made them sound really cheap especially at higher volumes. There are just much better options out there.

For around 30$ there are infinitely better headphones available.

Great cheap and quality headphones

Posted

Pros: Cheap good quality comfort and durable

Cons: cable too long and not be the hight end sonic headphones.

Hey, I have this pair of headphones since 2005 and the moment i write this comment, he has his 9th years old. It is still in very good condition despite the fact that i use it almost every morning on train or tube traffic to get to work. It has a very light weight so you wont be tired of wearing it, quality audio is very very good for his price, bass, mid, soundstage .... everything present, neutre and seem quite balanced. I wish it can drive a bit more bass and control better the mid, and it can be a wonderful semi-open headphones.   Omg, 9 years and there is still nothing goes wrong with it, It has been on my head in very bad condition, on vélo in the rain, snow, windy weather,...

Best deal I ever made

Posted

Pros: amazing SQ, great bass

Cons: uncomfortable after a few hours

This was my first pair of over ear headphones. They surprised me a lot because I paid the equivalent of about $30 and got a whole lot more for that in terms of sound.   I tried them out in the store, before purchasing, on my Samsung Galaxy S1 and eventually used them a lot on my work computer. Amazing sound quality! They have great bass, really punchy and deep, especially after about 20 hours of usage.    The only draw back is that they get a bit uncomfy after more than 2 hours of listening. I wear glasses and the cups press really hard on my ears. I have to take them off and have a break every now and then. They also leak sound at high volumes, but it's not...

Affordable and Reliable

Posted

Pros: Great Sound, Comfortable, Affordable

Cons: Long Cord

I bought my Sennheiser 202's not even a week ago and already loving them! They have wonderful treble, mid, and bass and work with my music. The problem i have which seems to be recurring is the long cord which can be a hassle when im skateboarding. I was very shocked at how cheap they were too. Before i bought these my friend told me to get what he had which were skullcandy mesh's but i stumbled onto this website and did some research on the choices my local store had and i saw the reviews for these and thought id give it a shot. I highly recommend these for anyone who want a good pair of headphones and are on a budget.   Im new here too so sorry if my review wasnt that great.

Cheap, but great headphones!

Posted

Pros: Detachable earpieces for storage and portability, good sound, equal bass and treble, not too expensive, long cord. Comfortable.

Cons: Long cord, not very portable in terms of going outside with it.

Alright, so I bought these because I needed to replace my broken Superlux HD699s since I accidentally dropped them because the wire snagged the chair. I did some research on these cans, and most of the reviews I have seen are positive and they were right.   Here's my review:   Sound: The sound itself is flat, the bass or the treble is balanced. The mid-range is also well balanced. When I first wore them, I listened to some songs, from drum n bass, rock, to dubstep. They sounded well, the treble is not as sharp as the one from the HD669s.   Comfort: I find it comfortable, even if I wear glasses. I can wear these without feeling any pain outside my ears for...

Pretty Good for the Price!

Posted

Pros: Very nice style, good bass,clear crisp sound, and low price

Cons: A little bit uncomfortable, hard to adjust, extremely long cord, and not very portable

I just recieved the Sennheiser hd 202 ii headphones at my door step. I have to say that after visiously ripping through the plastic packaging, these are pretty good headphones. They're definitely not the best, but tor only 20 bucks, they're decent. I'm no audiophile, but I think the bass is great. However, something I dislike about these is that they don't sound very good with soft music, forexample I listen to a lot of Taylor Swift, the audio didn't impress me. When I listened to a song with more bass, the audio was pretty good. Comfort. They're not very comfortable in my opinion. I think it puts a little too much pressure on my head, but that's probably just because they're brand new....

Pros: Great Sound Staging, Amazing Detail!

Cons: Sometimes Uncomfortable

My third pair of over-ear or on-ear pair. The first two were Skullcandy and they sucked! These cans are well worth the small price and deliver your monies worth! Ive heard thing ive never heard on other headphones.

HD 202 Review

Posted

Pros: clear sound, cheap

Cons: comfort, cord, unipivot

I cannot recommend these headphones.  When shopping for some replacement phones a couple years ago, I had the name Sennheiser on the mind.  I had read lots of great things about the company and their headphones.  So when I went to Future Shop to look for a replacement, I saw the HD-202s priced at about $80, and they looked alright, so I picked them up.   I have never hated a pair of headphones so much!  While the sound is clear and decent, it's certainly not a high end sound.  It's flat and boring, no life/air, no dynamics to speak of.  Bass is weak.  On the other hand they go fairly loud with no distortion, so they were great for bus...

Really?

Posted

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Dreadful sound

I have the following phones: Shure SE530 Etymotic ER-4P Koss Portapro Anniversary Edition Koss Portapro Sennheiser PX100 Sennheiser HD-202 They are listed in they order of my perception of their sound quailty. I was very dissapointed with the sound of the HD-202 headphones. When plugged into a computer any and all computer noise/distortion is highlighted. When used with a good sound source they merely sound tubby and dull. I was surprised. The PX100 phones blow them away and they are normally near the same price. I must say Bah.

The Best I Ever Had

Posted

Pros: Superb sound, Brilliant Bass, Lightweight, Durable and great design

Cons: Lead wires too long and tangly

I've used this pair of headphones for 3 years plus now. It's by far, the best I've ever had. I've tried (and had) some other headphones but I find that the HD202 is a tough match to beat. The x-factor for this headphone is the value for money. For the price that you're paying as compared to other closed headphones in the market, this one is a no brainer. It's so easy to tell that the sound it has is just astounding by the booming bass, and the crisp mids and highs from it. Besides this, the pleather pads are somewhat very elegant and very comfortable. The adjustable headband is very simple and does not take so much effort in adjusting as it's tight to the head, but light on...

Good for the price

Pros: Great bass and sound quality for the price

Cons: Cable is too long

Great headphones for someone who wants a cheap but capable set of headphones. The cable is far too long if you plan to use them away from home.
