Portable Studio-quality Sound

Sennheiser HD 200 PRO headphones deliver studio-quality sound without breaking the bank. Proprietary neodymium magnets ensure detailed sound with loads of low-end punch. These headphones offer outstanding comfort, courtesy of their light weight and soft ear cushions. Enjoy excellent sonic isolation, by means of a closed-back over-ear design. A robust single-sided cable gives rise to tangle-free, unencumbered movement. In the studio, at your electric piano, or in front of your laptop, Sennheiser HD 200 PRO headphones provide an enjoyable listening experience.

Circumaural vs. supra-aural

In layman's terms, these words simply mean "over ear" (circumaural) and "on ear" (supra-aural). In the case of headphones, this refers to the design of the earcup, which is the cushion that sits between the headphone's speakers (drivers) and your ear. Here at Sweetwater, we rarely use supra-aural headphones for professional applications, although they're great for casual listening — especially if you need to be aware of what's going on around you. On the other hand, over-ear headphones like these Sennheiser HD 200 PROs offer excellent attenuation of external noise.

Closed-back vs. open-back

Also referred to sometimes as simply "closed" and "open," this distinction addresses the design of the part of the headphone that covers the area behind the driver in a straight line away from the side of your head. Closed-back headphones like these Sennheiser HD 200 PROs prevent sound from escaping and leaking into your microphone. The downside of this design is that it traps pressure inside the headphone, which creates false low frequencies. These false low frequencies are fine for most uses (and even desirable in consumer products), but less desirable for critical listening.

The Sennheiser story

Sennheiser has been producing broadcast technology products since the 1940s and continues to develop microphone technology and wireless systems. Based in Germany, Sennheiser actually began as Laboratorium Wennebostel, manufacturing tube voltmeters. Microphone production followed shortly, and Lab W microphones quickly became a trusted name in broadcast, movie, and TV production. After adopting the Sennheiser name in 1958, their continued advancements in microphone technology soon made them popular with recording studios. Notable innovations include some of the first RF wireless systems for TV and stage use, the first interference tube mic for movies and TV, and the world's first open-back headphones.

Just Right

I had been looking for a good set of headphones for a long time, did not want to spend a lot of money. The HD 200 PRO is priced right and has excellent sound. Plus, they are comfortable! I use them with my PSR-S970.
