I usually wear headphones when I watch TV. It’s a habit I got into when Andrea was born and I didn’t want her to overhear the dialog from shows I was watching, like The Sopranos and Deadwood. At this point it’s just something I’m comfortable with, and it actually enhances the enjoyment for me. I’ve been using a pair of Sennheiser HD 202s for a few years, and have been really happy.
For the price, they’re hard to beat.
I wanted a new pair of headphones for work and thought about getting a second pair HD 202s, but then on a whim decided to throw in an extra ten dollars and step up to the EH-150s.
Now, I’m no audiophile—frankly I rate audiophiles as the only kind of people more annoying than neck bearded Linux fanatics—but these headphones quite simply rock. The bass presence is ungodly and the highs are clear and crisp even on MP3s.
If you’re in the market for new cans, this is $30 well spent.
Incidentally, why did Sennheiser decide to throw in the hyphen in the product name on the EH-150s but not the HD 202s? Budget constraints?
