Whether you're spinning tracks at the club or laying them down in the studio, Sennheiser's HD 205-II has you covered. These sealed-back, around-the-ear 'phones deliver lifelike, full-bodied sound while shielding you from outside noise. The padded headband and earcups ensure hours of listening comfort. Rugged construction means they'll hold up under heavy use. DJs will appreciate this: A rotating right earcup allows single-ear listening while maintaining earpad contact on your head for added stability without leaking sound into adjacent microphones. The straight, single-sided cord reduces tangles, and terminates in a stereo mini plug. The HD 205-II also comes with a handy protective pouch for storage and transportation.

For the price of this pair of headphones these things are pretty nice. I bought these for my wife because most headphones are too big and keep sliding off her head. They fit her great, tight but not too tight. noise reduction is okay. Sound is okay. Bang for the buck is big. However, if you have a large head (like me) or larger ears, these might be a little uncomfortable for you.

Pros: Well made Look great

Cons: tend to be a little on the small side

Very Good Headphones

The sound quality is far better than anything i have experienced in this price range.FAR BETTER. I fell asleep in them - it was nice, but they are tight and my ears were hurting when i woke up.

Pros: SOUND QUALITY. NOISE REDUCTION IS GOOD.

Cons: PROLONGED USE.

I got one of this headphones two weeks ago and can't complain, I like it very much, sound very clear and loud. There's a little details, it's a little tight, other than that, I recommended...

Good headphones, but...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The headphones sound great, but are a bit on the heavy side. They begin to get uncomfortable to wear fairly quickly.

Excellent!!!

Excellent quality, I'm in love with this headphone. Just a little big tide in my head but maybe is because my head is the one that is big. Other than that this is great item I reconnmend.

Pros: Bass is Awesome! Comes with great case

These Headphones have great sound; the high and lows are perfect which makes you feel like they are high end headphones. Chrisp and clean it they sound like a $300.00 pair. Great value for under $100.00.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second pair of Sennheisers that I've ordered from Crutchfield. My first (I still have them) were about $40 more expensive, but to me these sound almost as good. I will be honest and say that I think my other ones are *SLIGHTLY* more comfortable since the earcups wrap around my ears more fully, but these aren't bad at all once you get used to them. They are fully adjustable, so if they feel too tight on you, you shouldn't have any problems getting them to fit correctly on your head. The typical Sennheiser quality is evident in every aspect, and I absolutely LOVE the storage pouch it came with. I just think this is a great buy considering the price I paid, so now I have a really good pair of headphones I can take with me when I'm on the go. Fast shipping as usual -- thanks Crutchfield!
