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:

These headphones are great! The only gripe that I have about them is the fact that the wires are thinner than I would prefer them to be. I needed some new headphones for when I'm playing guitar without an amp blasting. The fact that these headphones have a 10 foot cord or whatever it is makes these a great option for guitar playing. I can stand up and play.... Move around the room a bit... etc... without having to take off the headphones all the time. Get you some!

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    I listen to jazz and these headphones are great for me. The highs sound clean and clear and the bass is solid but not over emphasized. This set of headphones doesn't make my ears overheated during extended listening sessions. I think the Sennheiser HD 201's are a great buy.

      Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

      These are cheap and sound cheap. I bought these almost entirely because of the price. These headphones are actually probably lower quality than other headphones in this price range. As other people have mentioned, there's quite a bit of static/buzzing with these. I thought I'd be able to get over it, but as time went on, I realized they had to be replaced. I ordered a set of Marantz and the difference in sound quality was immense. I think the HD201s also sound a little thin.

          They sound great, and feel great, but are cheaply made. If you are not extremely delicate and careful with them, they will break well before you get your money out of them! If you have children, dogs, careless roommates, etc. (basically anything in your house that doesn't know better, or respect your things) THEY WILL BREAK VERY EASILY!!!! They slightest jerk of the chord will bust these things. Mine lasted about a week. Now I'm going to drop a little extra cash, and buy something that can take a little more abuse.
