Buy them, use them. When they break, go out and buy another pair and repeat!
Not even certain what sort of features to look for. Has two drivers and framing to hold everything on your head. Comfortable enough with nothing you don't need.
I bought this to replace a cheap pair of AKG headphones that got broke. I have learned that headphones break regardless of how much you pay for them. I really do not want to have a heart attack when I sit on a $500+ headset!

Sound quality is really good for the price. I use them for recording and have been told that you do not want to have a headset that is "Too Good" anyway as it clouds your overall judgment of the mix. If you can make everything sound really good with an average set of headphones, it will sound really good playing back with your top-tier audio equipment!
For what you pay, it is a great pair of headphones!

I purchased these headphones about 2 weeks ago, and have thoroughly tested them with an array of music, as well as a couple of tone generators.

The re-create music quite well. However, the sub-bass lows are a little rough, and at higher volumes, are often crackled. I've found them to be quite superb, overall, in sound at low to mid-volume levels. Mids and Highs are simply spectacular for the money, and at lower volumes, the bass has good sound.

Perhaps the most recognizable flaw, is that these headphones simply have no real "punch" to them. It is almost as though someone has inserted a filter in order to reduce delivery of the overall "feel" of the music that can be obtained with a higher-cost headphone.

I would certainly recommend them for average listening, and low to mid-level playback of recording, but would avoid trying to use them for anything that would require high volume listening (e.g. bass guitar, drums, etc.). They are good for the average listener, but not for someone who wants a lot of bass reproduction.

The design is very comfortable, and I could wear them for hours at a time. Well-padded, and cover the ears for optimum sound isolation. The cord is a bit thin and flimsy, and requires a bit of extra care.

Overall, they are nice headphones, but they really lack when it comes to any significant bass reproduction. I would not suggest them for kids, or people who like to "crank it up." They are excellent for just average listening, but that's about all.

          Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

          Comfortable, nice full sound, great price, these headphones are great for what I needed them for. My band practices using headphones so we don't get too loud and make the Drummer's wife upset. We run everything through them and they handle everything well. Time will tell if the cable to the headphones hold up as it's not very heavy but all in all a nice pair of headphones.

            Solid set of cheap headphones. I needed a pair to plug into my amp to practice without disturbing everyone around me, and these do the trick. Don't expect great sound, though. For the price you pay, you shouldn't expect a fantastic sound. Otherwise, they do the trick. Exactly what I needed.
