Sennheiser hd 202 review

  -  

It all started a few months ago when I was at a CD shop. They were using the Sennheiser HD202 headphones, & I was surprised at how musically involving those headphones were. I know we are all into high-end, high fidelity, audiophile, exotic, expensive headphones, & a $30 cans is the last thing we’ll look at when building a system. However, once in a while, a good cheap tai nghe can be fun.

We all know how picky high kết thúc headphones can be. Reading the đánh giá on the HD650, K701, & DT880 confirms that. As the cấp độ of fidelity goes up, somehow those headphones get more picky on the tuy vậy they lượt thích and not like. Not lớn mention that the higher resolution reveals how crappy your favorite band’s recordings are, và that you can no longer listen lớn the đứng top 40 because most of the recordings have compressed dynamic range & overly bright treble. Then comes the requirements with the amps, which we all know is something our wallets hate. Last but not least, is the necessity to lớn babysit your headphone, perhaps even more than your own baby daughter (if you have one)! Crap, that sounds like a world I don’t want to live in!

This is where headphones lượt thích the HD202 comes in. So while listening to it at the CD shop, I noticed that it was really good, even playing different genres of music. It can tell it was a true Sennheiser in the sense that it has a relatively smooth & laid back sound, and with a good low end. It is not as “heavy” (as in slow-paced) as the HD650, but it was pretty nimble & it still works really well with the faster Rock stuff. Of course, it’s not as fast and PRaTty HD25-1, but again, the HD202 does have a wider genre bandwith than the $200 HD25-1. This tai nghe can take on a lot of different music, & come up with an 8/10 presentation for every one of them, including Rock, Pop, Top40, Jazz, or even Classical.

It actually looks good on a black, silhouetty picture. Had the lighting been brighter, you’d notice that the headphone looks really cheap và plasticky.

One day, I felt like wanting lớn buy a new headphone but I didn’t want lớn spend $300 on it, so I went out & got the HD202. I got home, listened khổng lồ it, and everything was as good as I remembered it khổng lồ be on the CD shop. Of course mine was better since the one on the CD siêu thị had old tattered pads that felt uncomfortable to lớn wear. I also owned the HD201, và think it’s better lớn spend a little bit extra khổng lồ get the HD202, mainly due to lớn the added low end and better acoustics from the different housing kiến thiết (the HD201 had more reverb issues, so it sucks for classical and jazz). & while the HD201 has a more neutral tone, the added low end toàn thân on the HD202 puts just the proper amount of weight khổng lồ the music, while still quite far from a bassy headphone definition.

The laid back stance didn’t feel as dark as a HD650 either, most probably because the HD202 didn’t have as much bottom over as the HD650. & within the laid back stance, you get a surprisingly good treble presence, but toned in such a way that they don’t become intrusive on mainstream recordings. The midrange area is quite full bodied & smooth (something you wouldn’t expect for a $30 headphone). Though the vocal, strangely, can be a little backward on some recordings. You would never find the bass presence to be lacking (if you do, then let me certify you a true basshead), although the punch is not as good as I would like it lớn be (aka, a little weak). The bass is also a tad boomy, though I certainly don’t mind given the price point.
