nice post swaffleman
so the new product did perfected by sennheiser a bit ,not purely cosmetics change.
So i wonder how 219 229's sound compared to famous HD202? thx in advance
Just want to back up Swaffleman's assessment of these phones. They are a great buy at $30.
Super efficient so they work with your cellphone ipad etc. And the frequency response is quite detailed
and pleasing. Here's a link to a chart comparing these to the Sony MDR V6:
Pretty comparable. I do not notice that ~7DB bump at 100HZ. The bass is very controlled but
can come on when needed. Bass is not boomy. Very detailed and tight. Treble is good to my ears
but I suspect they are a bit bright even sibilant for some. I like hearing the hiss of recordings and
the imperfections in vocals FWIW.
