Audiophile, Premium, Best In-Class, Sennheiser

Sennheiser is a name that is synonymous with audiophile products. They have been viewed as a premium, top-tier (dare we say "The" top-tier?) brand since the beginning of time. Laboratorium Wennebostel's time that is. In 1945, Prof. Dr. Fritz Sennheiser founded Laboratorium Wennebostel's, or "Lab W" in a pleasant half-timbered house. Fritz Sennheiser was born with a gift. When he was 11 years old, he saw an early radio that inspired him to build a crystal radio. Again, he was 11 years old. There was no turning back from that day. The following year after founding "Lab W", Sennheiser produced his microphone. From that point on, it was one success story after the other. Sennheiser's technology continued to improve, and "The Bar" continued to rise. In the mid 60's, Sennheiser released the HD 414, the world's first "Open Headphones". That very day changed the future of headphones forever. That very same headphone, the HD 414, not only helped establish Sennheiser as a leading headphone manufacturer, but it sold over 10 million units. It is the best selling headphone of all time, and Sennheiser had just gotten started.

December 21, 2013

This is actually my second set of Sennheiser HD 201 headphones. I wear them literally probably about 20+ hours a week while working out, doing yard work, cleaning house, etc. First pair lasted 3 years- and actually they still worked but where the wire went into the jack, it was starting to wear and so from time to time there would be a little static- but this was after 3 years of heavy use. Before these, I would go through headphones every few months. They are very well built and provide excellent sound. Obviously for under $30, they aren't Bose or Beats... but they are the best pair of under $30 headphones I have ever used and I am nearing 40 years of age.

I have only one complaint.... the cord is extremely long. I fix that by winding a couple feet of it up and throwing a couple twisty-ties around it. Of course, depending on your use, the extra long cord could be a good thing.
