Sennheiser px200 vs px200-II

post #1 of 8

Hi, 

My faithful px200 give up the ghost and i wonder if the px200-II really sound better or it's just an upgrade of the look ?

Thank you.

The PX200 were my first non stock headphones, and I used to like them a lot back then. But the right driver failed so I bought a PX100 and I found them to be much better. But I got fed up of tthe PX100 being open, so recently I acquired the 200-II, and I found them to be quite a bit better than the PX100 (and let alone the PX200). They have a surprisingly big headstage for such a small and closed headphone, the bass is very tight and clear, and the highs are relaxed.

 

So bottom line IME, compared to the original PX200 I found them to be a big improvement, they have more and better bass, bigger headstage, and it is a lot easier to get a better seal which makes getting their optimum sound a lot easier than with their predecessor, and to top it all the build quality and cable are also a significant upgrade.

I used to have PX100 and PX200 (old models) and now I have both PX100-II and PX200-II. While to my ears PX100-II are a step back from the old open model, the PX200-II are a big improvement., way better than the old ones.

Even though they have more (and better) bass than the PX200, it is far away from being a bassy headphone, it is a tight and pretty nice bass and in fact it has much less mid bass than the PX100, which is bloated and very bassy in comparison.

Just as Roger Strummer said: PX200-II are not bass heavy headphones. They have a tight and punchy sound, but the bass is definitely not too much.

 

Best Regards

what did you like in the series I? Those were pretty bad IMO. Could anything be worse than those?
