"Did not like the bass when turned up"

The HD 201 has a decent sound but they didn’t appeal to me because the bass was not that good. When playing music that didn’t have deep bass they were not too bad. But when playing bass and low frequency heavy music they didn’t perform well. The bass would get really distorted and would not be clean. Even though the frequency response went down to 21 hz they still didn’t deliver clean enough for me.
They are very comfortable and felt great on my head. I only used them a few times at a local studio. They seemed rather ‘cheap’ to me but that is because they are. They only cost around 25 bucks, most headphones in this price range are not very good at all and will not last that long. I do not see these headphones lasting a long time either. The mids and highs are pretty clean though and were not too sharp or piercing when listening to them but the bass just didn’t do it for me.
They do have a 9 foot cable on them which is great for the price they cost. They are very light and have an impedance of 24 ohms. They do not come with a ¼ adapter nor do they have a “coiled” cable. They cable is straight and the style of them is circumaural. If the bass response was a little cleaner and wider I would think these headphones could be the best headphones under 50 dollars. But because the bass can get sloppy when turned up I would have to say it is better to just go with a cheaper pair of Sony headphones. The bass in the HD 201 sound like the bass in a cheap pair of head phones that can be purchase at any store. If your budget doesn’t allow you to spend more money then look into some of the inexpensive Shure or Sony headphones for a better bass response.
