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.
Hate to blast this one from the past. But I would love to know, and I have been searching everywhere for a while but NO EVER compared the sound of the HD219 to the HD229. or Even the HD228 to the HD218! (The headphones article was kinda vague in my opinion)
If anyone has two of any, or had the chance to hear both, please share your thoughts. Are there any minor/major differences between sounds on any of those cans?
We obviously know that HD218/228 have more bass than their successor the HD219/HD229. So i am less interested in comparing predecessor vs successor, and more interested in comparing 218 vs 228, or 219 vs 229.
