I was about to plop down $300 for some Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, and the guy talked me into buying this pair instead. I am not a huge audio nerd, and I had never heard of Sennheiser, but I've had these headphones for almost a year now, and I can't imagine going to anything else!

First, the size is nice because they aren't huge and heavy. They are comfortable and fit great. For me, the audio quality is exactly what I need it to be. I also love that I am able to use them as a headset with my iPhone. It's awesome to be able to click so easily from music to the phone, especially when I am studying. The phone just interrupts your song to ring. When the conversation is over, it goes right back to the music.

I am hard on these headphones, I normally just toss them in my backpack, but they still look like they did the day I bought them.

I got these headphones as a replacement for my PC headset. I used those headphones on everything: computer, Xbox, cell phone, Mp3 player. I decided I needed to upgrade to a better pair without spending too much. The HD218 is an EXCELLENT choice for that. I needed a good quality pair of headphones that I could take everywhere I go. That means no battery, box in middle of cord. They also had to be very comfortable too. THESE ARE VERY COMFORTABLE. I have been wearing them for about 2 hours straight with absolute comfort.

Physically, these headphones look great. They have a minimalist design; black with chrome finish. However, the cord is very thin. One of the thinnest I have used. This could be weak point for these otherwise fine pair of headphones. I will have to take extra care with cord. The build is strong; I needed a pair of headphones that I would not have worry about making sure they are safe all the time. They feel firm, but not indestructible.

The sound on these headphones good. The bass is not as good as I was expecting. On the front cover of the box, it advertises the great base the headphones. My PC headset had more bass than these. However, the sound quality of is excellent. I tried it on all my devices and not one ceased to disappoint me. However, the volume could be a little louder.

Overall, great pair of headphones considering the price. They are not a super pair of studio headphones that cost hundreds of dollars. But you should not expect that.

I would recommend these to everyone who is looking a quality pair of durable, stylish, yet great sounding headphones.

It's kind of ironic that I got the request to review these headphones at this time. I was just showing them to my brother and exclaiming how much I liked them. We're both are ex-DJs and do sound production and voice work. Now, while I might not use these for editing or producing a piece; they are definitely adequate. Listening to and appreciating music on these phones is thoroughly enjoyable though. Nice DEEP end, staging, clarity, and presence. One thing I noted since getting these is how comfortable they are while wearing them. After awhile, you forget that your even wearing them. I'd recommend these in a heartbeat. Especially at the price I paid for them (I think it was $28 something). Only one small reservation in terms of durability and I think that question will be answered in time. I'm not hard on electronics equipment but some of the plastics seem a little questionable. That may be just me and again only time will tell. Get these for your MP3 player, computer, sound system, TV etc... they'll work very well with any of those. They deserve the 5 star rating.

After struggling for a while with the average quality of a few models of closed headphones and the piercing pain in my earlobes when using them for more than an hour, I believe I've found what I wanted: A good quality, good sound, reasonable priced earphones that won't hurt my humanity. But beware audiophiles: The sound coming from these guys even if rich and clear, with realistic deep bass and sharp high notes will never match those you can get from professional headphones, nor is their intention nor their price. These are nice mid-level workhorses that do their job pretty good, so keep your expectations on that level. If you want professional sound get ready to pay three or four times more. Just be realistic

After the "disclaimer" above, I bumped into these headphones while looking to replace a pair of Sony's, my third pair of closed headphones that not only sounded average but made me ended up with swollen, red earlobes after a little more than an hour of use. I tried everything, from forcing the top bridge to open and release the pressure to using the cup in different areas of my earlobes with no success. I even tried stuffing some cotton yarn on the cups and the only result was me looking ridiculous. Then I read a review on this pair from a reputable source attending the latest CES in Vegas and I gave them a try

They are good, really good. I use them mostly for PC gaming and the sound effects as well as the music and dialogue is very clear and deep. I also tried them a couple of times on my iPod listening to classical music and they behave decently, not as good as I wanted but at this price I doubt there are any headphones that can deliver classical music with the needed fidelity. They also provide good isolation from external noises with a thick layer of foam and synthetic fiber that to my surprise doesn't make you feel that you put your ears on the kitchen range. They do warm your ears a bit, but noting you can't stand or even notice after you get accustomed to them

But the best part for me is the fit. No pain, no discomfort whatsoever. The combination of a good layer of soft material with a multiple point adjusting cups provides a very close fit yet mimic the shape of your earlobes good enough to avoid the pain other earphones can get you. If you add I use them while wearing glasses, then the result is astounding: No pressure on your head from the glasses or any ache or soreness from the cups. Overall the best pair of closed headphones I owned in a while. Five stars considering they last for at least three years at my heavy use, but that's too early to tell
