Our take on the Sennheiser HD 205-II

by Dave Bar
Sennheiser

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.

Highlights:

  • around-the-ear design with padded earcups
  • adjustable padded headband
  • closed earcup design reduces ambient noise
  • rotatable earcup for single-ear listening
  • extra-rugged design is perfect for DJ or studio use
  • headphone minijack with full-size adapter
  • single-sided cord
  • cable length: 10 feet
  • frequency response: 14-20,000 Hz
  • impedance: 32 ohms
  • sensitivity: 112 dB
  • total harmonic distortion: less than 0.5%
  • protective carry pouch
  • weight: 7.3 oz.
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Good headphones, but...

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

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 delivers the goods once again

Written By Erich K., Sterling Heights, MI on Wednesday, June 01, 2011
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!
