Rating: 4/5 Comfy, good audio quality October 16, 2016 My wife likes her Sennheiser HD201s, bought for her to use with her computer and with her cell phone or an audio player (CDs or MP3s) while commuting by train. So far, she has used them at home and liked them: they are "comfy" and have "good audio."

Rating: 5/5 Comfortable with good sound January 9, 2016 Everything about this new (to me) headphones is pretty good & the price is very reasonable. But the big standout is the decent long cable that comes with it. The bane of my life is short cables on h/phones. Its comfortable to wear for long periods to listen to music, completely enclosing the ears & the sound quality is good. I would go for the Sennheiser every time.

Rating: 5/5 Used for MANY years... December 6, 2014 So long ago, I don't even remember what year I got it. I didn't purchase from OWC, but saw it on a "Specials" list, and noticed it's still the same model. Great products are produced for a LONG time, I guess...

I use it mostly with my Mac. The cable is much longer them typical "earbud" headphones; it reaches comfortably from the back of the Mac (on the desktop). The ear "cups" are very large. They completely enclose each ear, and rest against your head, unlike the currently popular type (like "Beats") that rest ON (over) the ear. Because the cups enclose the ear, sound isolation is excellent. It also allows the speakers to be physically larger, which improves sound quality.

I really like the sound quality. It sounds "real," without artificially overpowering bass. I can use a lower volume setting and get desirable sound quality. After many years, it still sounds excellent. When brand new, recommend letting it play random songs unattended for a few hours with volume set higher than normal, to "break them in." Because the speakers are so large, they require more power. That means the media player's volume may need to be set higher to achieve a "perceived" sound level (compared to tiny earbuds). That could be a problem if you like things REALLY loud.

They are comfortable to wear when "stationary" (like at a computer). I would not wear them for "walking around." The top of the headband has padding, along with "plush" padding on the ear cups. Be sure to position the cups so that the padding is against your hear, not the ears. The padding shows wear after many years of use, but still fine.
