Sennheiser HD201/HD203/HD229 Which one should I buy?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. I was about to buy one of these Headphones, but I've been searching and I can't find any information that helps me to decide which one will fit better.

There are three headphones that looks very interesting:


Sennheiser HD201

Sennheiser HD203

Sennheiser HD229 


I usually listen rock, metal, classic music etc. and I want to wear it on the street (I'll use them on the bus and walking) so the confort is important too.

Actually, I can spend about 30-40€ (about 45$) and maybe there's another model that will fit better than the one I listed, so any suggestion will be welcomed.

Thanks to everybody! =)

Where do you live? You could find another options in your country for the same price range

I live in Spain, but I don't think it really matters because I'm planning to buy it online

Haven't you check this website? 



Here is a better deal for you, on the ear. Creative aurvana live for your price range. Probably better than the ones you posted.

Thank you for your recommendations. I've been looking for the creative aurvana live, and I like what I saw. Now, talkin g about the other two models, I've to say I don't feel like buying something from Panasonic nor Phillips, because I had bad experiences with other headphones I bought in the past. That's why I chose Sennheiser, because all my headphones from Sennheiser where really good. I have to say that I'm looking for some closed headphones, because I want to use it at the library too, and maybe I'll annoy someone with my music.

I've been looking in other sites and seems like the HD 419 or HD 429 (this one is a bit expensive for me right now) is a great option too.

So what do you think?

I hear about the low end sennheisers breaking a bit too often. One driver stops working or something

So, I think I'll go with the HD 203,  but if someone could tell me if it'll fit my needs..well that would be great XD

Rather go for the creative aurvana live (CAL). I'm positive they are more durable, and they should sound good

Wooaaaah I just get my CAL and.. well I can't explain. The sound is amazing! Thank you so much for all the answers. And I totally recommend the CAL by the way. It's totally worth it.

Thank you so much guys!

I think it was the Sony V-150 ones. It sounds good (maybe too much bass for me) but then someone sit on them and it broke so I had to buy another ones to replace them, and I'm glad with the replacement
