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:

    I'm a bass player who just blew out an old headphone set, so wanted to see if this set could work. Specs say lower frequencies that may work for me and so far it sounds a little dry and flat EQ-wise, but that's fine since my use is predominantly practice with an ipod. So far so good

    Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

    Personally I thought these headphones were pretty good. I'm absolutely not an audiophile, but I hear a nice crisp sound outta these cans. They are lacking in bass a little bit and are a little quiet, but in my opinion I found them very compareable to the akg K44s.

    Great for studio. Balanced, honest frequency response. All around best deal on headphones I have seen. I bought a second pair it's such a great bargain and I am very choosy about headphones.

        bought a beginner guitar kit, and added these to the deal so I can practice anytime without disturbing the wife or kids. I know nothing about "headphones" but these appear to be from a reputable company, they had decent reviews and were reasonably inexpensive. I've only used them twice but they sound good to me.

        Comments about Sennheiser HD 201 Pro Closed Back Headphones:

        I thought that the Sennheisher name meant that I was getting a killer product. I was wrong. Sure, these headphones are comfortable and lightweight, but the advertised "crisp bass tones" simply do not exist (unless you are musician like me and you use your imagination to hear the bottom end.)
        Even though, while using these headphones on my iPhone AND on my laptop, the volume on these devices is set on FULL BLAST, the volume within the headphones is weak.
        I did not receive the 1/8" to 1/4" adapter either. And, the so-called "ambient noise reduction" is a joke as well. I will be returning these and giving Sennheisher one more chance by upgrading to the next product in the cost chain.
        What a huge disappointment these are.
