Trying the Sennheiser HD 202 II

So, I got the pair of HD 202s delivered today. First impression: sound is great, but not phenomenal. I’m getting to listen to new, fine details of music that my previous headphones were unable to render. But, I’m used to the big, thumping sound thanks to my a-Jays One+. Although it’s a pair of in-ears, it’s still the best in-ears I’ve listened to. All in all, the purchase wasn’t bad at all, since the Sennheisers still outperform the a-Jays in detail and other areas and are more comfortable to wear for long periods of time at home.

Ordered a Sennheiser HD 202 II


So, I needed a good pair of over-the-ear headphones, ideally with a nice piece of microphone as well. Unfortunately, among the ones that fulfilled both the requirements, none impressed me enough. So, in the end I decided to not spend a lot on a pair of Audio Technicas, and ordered the Sennheiser HD 202 II which I got for around $25 after reading a ton of positive user as well as expert reviews. Should get it on Monday if things go as planned. A bit eager to try a new kinda sound. I mostly listen to punk rock, hard rock and a little bit of metal anyway. Didn’t need an audiophil’istic one to begin with, though I’m setting my expectations high indeed for the HD 202 II.
