Sennheiser HD 201
Released January, 2008
The Pros:Extremely low priced for the sound quality. Paired with an amp or high-quality source the sound quality improves. Durable build quality.
The Cons:You need to crank the volume up on your mp3 player or laptop to get a good volume level. Bass response is neutral, almost lacking. Not for bassheads, but good for balanced sound.

Closed circum-aural design means the headphones surround the ear completely, as well as keeping sound in and ambient noise out. Hypo-allergenic leatherette ear pads are offered for comfortable extended usage and a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter is included. What separates the Sennheiser HD 201 form the more expensive HD 205 is the fact that the earcups do not rotate for one-ear listening but rather swivel like normal headphones. Also the most important difference between these and not only the HD 205 but more expensive headphones in general are the Frequency Response(higher = more expensive) and Total Harmonic Distortion(THD, lower = more expensive). Although these headphones have been regarded as having an extra deep bass response, it doesn't reflect in the Frequency Response quoted by the manufacturer.

Extremely low priced for the sound quality
paired with an amp or high-quality source the sound quality improves
closed design will help block out outside noise in an office or any other louder-than-average environment - but probably won't isolate you completely, minimal to no sound leakage into the environment
Good dynamic range means it is suitable for a variety of listening applications
sound better with a beefier amplifier/source
you need to crank the volume up on your mp3 player or laptop to get a good volume level
Bass response is neutral, almost lacking. Not for bassheads, but good for balanced sound.
