I decided to upgrade my headphones from the apple in-ear buds that were constantly causing discomfort. When asking around which brand to buy, I was told that Sennheiser was the best, so when I saw these go on sale online, I sprang for them.

They really are a giant step-up from the standard apple earbuds. The sound quality is much better, and there's less outside noise to interfere with the music. I was very happy with how the music sounded: I could hear beats and tones I couldn't differentiate before.

The cord is a bit long, and does get tangled sometimes when I'm listening to music. It is a bit of an annoyance, and I do wish it came with an option of having a retractable cord, but I suppose a simple zip-tie or rubber band can solve that problem.

One other con (which is why I deducted one star) was that the heardphones are a bit snug. Sometimes my head starts hurting after a while because the headphones are a bit tight on my head - if you have a smaller head, I recommend getting these headphones, but if your head is more on the large side, opt for a different model.

Overall, I recommend this product. Excellent sound, and I like over-the-ear headphones much better than the in-ear buds.

I bought these headphones hoping that they would block out noise but I'm afraid they didn't hold up in that area, but they are nice headphones for the low price. The sound quality is adequate, nothing bad, nothing to brag about. The comfort is standard, I wouldn't recommend wearing them longer than 2 hours because they did start to hurt my ears. I found them to be a little large, but I am a smaller person. The ear pieces didn't really fit me where I found them comfortable. Even at higher volume I could hear too many outside sounds so I was disappointed with this because I had bought them to try to drown out outside noises in my home. For the price, they work fine but they weren't something that I wanted to continue to use every day. I wound up giving my pair to my son. You get what you pay for. They didn't cost much and they didn't do much overall but they were cheap compared to alot of other headphones.

Sound Quality
Ok, nothing to brag about.

Comfort
I didn't find them very comfortable and wouldn't want to wear them for an extended period of time.

The best budget headphones yet

By 

from USA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

I was facing a 13 hour car ride and forgot my Bose headphones, and need something to get me through the trip. I saw these cheap Sennheiser headphones and almost passed them up. I have used other Sennheiser headphones and the quality was amazing so I decided to go by the brands reputation and give these a try for a one time trip. I was immediately amazed at the quality of these headphones. The build quality was good especially for the low price tag. The sound is what amazed me the most. I could barely tell the difference between these and the Bose that i paid 5 times the price for. They were very comfortable and I had no issues wearing the for the bulk of the ride. Anyone looking for a spare pair headphones or anyone on a tight budget or any parent that has a kid wanting good headphones, needs to buy these. There are no better headphones than these for the price. continues to impress.

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

These are great headphones as they blot out sound okay and are very comfortable. I really liked these headphones because they covered your ears and have great sound. If you're looking for good quality comfortable headphones, that aren't so expensive, these are for you.

Sennheiser DJ Headphones sound ok but not comfortable

By 

from Westchester, IL

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

The Sennheiser DJ Headphones HD 201s are average sounding headphones that offer okay balance across the sound spectrum, a little lacking in the sub bass department, but doesn't offer enough padding for prolonged listening sessions. I really wanted to love these headphones simply based on the price, but they just feel too uncomfortable on my ears for longer than an hour. They sound on par compared to a lot of headphones in their price range, but comfort means everything to me in a pair of headphones. The driver is practically sitting on my ear because of a lack of cushioning. I own several pairs of headphones that sit on my ears and the pads on the 201s have to be the hardest. I wouldn't recommend these headphones to individuals who enjoy longs hours of listening. If you need headphones with a little more cushioning I would recommend the Sennheiser HD 202s.

A nice pair of headphones

By 

from Apple Valley, CA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

Sennheiser 201 headphones are a affordable pair of quality headphones. They do an adequate, but not stellar job for the price. they wont block out every noise, but they will do some. They are quite comfortable with padded ear cushions- although the padding is quite thin. a problem I had with them is the really long cord that comes with them, I would often get tripped up in the cord and that would yank the phones out of my computer. After 3 years, the phone jack broke off in my computer, making me unable to use any headphones in my computer. So be wary of long cords, but overall its an average product and good buy for price conscious consumers.

Headphones for my son

By 

from Mount Morris, MI

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

My oldest son is sixteen and he talks on his cell phone. He was looking for a good set of headphones so he can talk on the cell phone without anyone hearing the other person's conversation. He took a lot of time to find a pair of headphones that would work for him. He asked his friends what they had and how the headphones work for them. He really likes these headphones because they work good. The headphones are very durable and seem to be holding up. Previously he has had other headphones that either do not work good or they do not hold up and then i had to purchase another pair for him. I am really glad that these are really working good for him.

Great Sound for a Great Price!

By 

from Silverstreet, SC

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

I bought these for my husband. He is very picky about sound, so I was a little worried about this purchase, but he has fallen in love with them! The sound is great, the range of the wireless head phones is out standing, and he can listen to the TV at night while I go to bed without disturbing me. This was the best audio purchase I made last year!

Sound Quality
Won't listen to music with any other headphones now!

Good Budget Choice

By 

from Torrington, CT

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

I have been pleased with the overall performance of these headphones, which were purchased for use with the computer and to help dampen the sound of rambunctious children in the background and to appease a noise sensitive neighbor.

Sound Quality
The sound doesn't quite carry the bass and sound level enough to worry about your hearing becoming seriously impaired for these but they do the job nicely imparting sound at an enjoyable level and quality.

Comfort
I didn't find any serious entanglement of hair and everything was appropriately cushioned and balanced.

Design
A very long lead, convenient for computer or similar use, although might be of issue if you are using these headphones on the go or around moving equipment, such as exercising.

Durability
Our household requires a product that can cope with some manhandling and these have stood the test so far, unlike some others we have tried.

Sennheiser gets the job done.

By 

from Canton, CT

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

I've had these headphones for about 3 years now, and I must say, I like them quite a bit. They fit comfortably on my ears, are easily adjusted, and can block out outside noises when I use them. Music sounds considerably better through these headphones compared to other types I've had in the past. They're pried well for anyone on a budget as well, and are just as good for travel as they are at home. I have no plans to buy any more headphones as long as I have my Sennheiser.

Sound Quality
Sound is clear, and doesn't have to compete with noises outside.

Comfort
The headphones are soft on the ears, and don't crush at all.

Durability
These are breakable, as I have damaged mine, but are usually easily repairable too.

Wallet friendly, good headphones...

By 

from USA

Comments about Sennheiser DJ Headphones:

I bought these a long time ago and I tell you what I still love them to this day along with my other pair of Sennheiser headphones. A lot of people never even heard of the brand name but you should! The stereo sound that is being reproduced by the headphones is very detailed in nature. You will be able to experience audio tracks with enhanced levels of clarity and precision. The high quality audio is reproduced because of the high quality of materials that are used for constructing the Sennheiser headphones. The audiophiles among us might be already aware of this fact - the better the materials used for the construction of the headphone, the better will be the audio being reproduced by the same! Go ahead and treat yourself! They are great for the price...
