Our take on the Sennheiser HD 205-II

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.

A little tight fitting for people with large heads.
