      The sound of the Sennheiser PX-200-II is quite different from the sound of the PX-100-II, and where I would normally expect a closed earcup (PX-200-II) to produce better bass than an open earcup (PX-100-II), the opposite is true with these two headphones.Bass with the PX-200-II is down about 5 to 6 db overall compared to the PX-100-II, but is up about 3 to 4 db compared to the Beyer DT-48E version 2010, which is known for very light bass response. Unlike the DT-48E however, the PX-200-II offers a modest level of visceral bass impact, and while that would not satisfy a person who finds the PX-100-II to be "about right", it does give a sense of real bass - even deep bass below 50 hz. Bass detail with the PX-200-II is excellent, much like the detail I hear with the PX-100-II.The midrange of the PX-200-II is clear and clean, but seems to be boosted slightly in the 2 to 3 khz range, imparting an "EEEEEEEEE" (in English) to the sound, but not enough to make a significant coloration in my opinion. I noted that when the in-line volume control of the PX-200-II is turned down from a given listening level, and the source device's volume is turned up to equal the original volume, the midrange acquires a more nasal or "honky" quality, which suggests to me to keep the PX-200-II's in-line volume control at maximum.The PX-200-II's highs are smooth, but rolled off quite a bit at 10 khz and above when connected to the headphone jack of my iPod Touch (2010 version). When connected to my Cute Beyond headphone amp via the iPod's dock connector (line out) with low gain enabled, the highs improve significantly. I did not experience problems with sibilants in either case.I didn't get a chance to compare the PX-200-II to the PX-100-II, but I have a PX-100 with 12 cm wide holes cut out of the center of the earpads, and that headphone still sounds quite dull compared to the PX-200-II. Compared to the Sennheiser HD-800, the PX-200-II's midrange has that "EEEEEEEEE" quality to a significant degree, which could also be described as nasal. Still, listened to on its own with a wide variety of tracks, I wasn't bothered by midrange colorations.In my test for isolation, I placed the iPod Touch on a table 3 feet away, playing a Musicbox app through the built-in speaker at 80 percent volume. With nothing on my head I could hear the musicbox loud and clear with full quality of tone, and with the PX-200-II on my head the sound was dulled quite a bit, but still audible at almost the same volume.The following are some of the music tracks I tested with, and the main features I listened for with those tracks:Blues Project - Caress Me Baby (piercing guitar sound, handled well).Cocteau Twins - Carolyn's Fingers (guitar string detail and quality, excellent).Commodores - Night Shift (bass detail, excellent).Germs - Forming (raw garage sound, good).Lick The Tins - Can't Help Falling In Love (tin whistle, very clear and clean).Lou Reed - Walk On The Wild Side (bass impact, fair).REM - Radio Free Europe (drum impact, good).Rolling Stones - She's So Cold (bass impact and guitar sound, fair).U2 - With Or Without You (bass boom/high-pitched instruments/sibilants, handled well).Van Morrison - Into The Mystic (bass, weak).Who - Bargain (voice trailing off: "best I ever had", good vocal harmonics).

      Just bought these today in-store because my Cardo S-2 Bluetooth headphones broke last week and I wanted something with better sound quality. The salesman pointed me to the first generation version of these to sample the sound and then told me "Imagine that richness, plus great bass response. That's what you'll get out of the PX 200 II headphones." Thank god they have a good return policy, because these are going back tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, they have GREAT mids and highs, but I could hardly hear ANY bass until I turned it all the way up in the EQ. If you just want some portable headphones that are light and comfortable (and you don't care about hearing everything the artist intended) these are OK. I like to feel immersed in my music (especially when riding the subway) and even tho these isolate well, [...]

      Surprisingly great audio! Balanced sound

        Comments about Sennheiser PX 200-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

        I was looking for lightweight, great quality headphones with a balanced sound (as in not intentionally boosting certain frequencies). I work on audio professionally, so beats by dre headphones and similar products were not anything I was looking for. I was able to narrow my choices down to the Sennheiser's Momentum over-ear headphones (bluetooth version was not available when comparing) and the KEF M500 on-ear headphones. The KEF M500 was the best between these three soundwise, but the PX 200-II was a close second. The Momentum over-ear headphones was a close third. Yes... these sound better than the Momentum headphones. The reason to buy the Momentum headphones is if you need noise isolation. The closed back headphones does cause some coloration in sound which is why they don't sound as good as the PX-200-II. The PX-200-II headphones are great for places where competing noise is not an issue and where you are not concerned with others hearing your audio source, as these headphones will definitely bleed sound. I have a shaved head, so comfort is definitely an issue. The Momentum headphones were the most comfortable, the PX-200-II were second only because of how lightweight they are, and the KEF M500 were a very close third, but ultimately I felt the metal frame felt strange one my head and very cold (something not good in the winter time).My budget when searching was around $. These were only $ when purchased. These are very lightweight since they are mostly plastic with some leather-like covered foam padding, but they sound incredible. Highly recommended if you are in need of a balanced sound... and as a plus for other audio pros, it's nice having great sound without the over-ear coverage.

              I bought PX 200-II Headphones for everyday commute by train. This headphone meets all my expectations: great sound, deep bass and perfect stereo. For me is important to have it in collapsible form. PX 200-II has reasonable size: not too big, not too small, enough to cover ears and not to hear outside noise.

                I bought these to replace a worn out PX100. The workmanship is excellent so they should last. The Px200 II sounds really good if you don't like bass because they have none. I'm going to buy another PX100 and give these away.

                The headphones are great in almost every aspect. Just the cord is way too short for this kind of headphones. The volume control also is not particulary well placed on the cord, it stays kind of mid chest, so where do you clip it?. It would have bee nice as well that Sennheiser had also put a angle headphone jack, as it would avoid it from braking easy.

                      Same compact folding design as the previous version. Improved comfort and outside noise reduction with the padded ear pieces. Maybe a slight drop in volume in order to get the noise reduction. Not sure i like the volume controller in line. It's bulky. I do like the fact there is a single cord.

                        I purchase the PX 200-II to use mainly at the office and with my Nexus7 tablet. The headphones are very light and I have used them for hours at a time with no issues. Sound is fantastic, bass is fair for the size. Construction is not very solid as I feel that I have to carefully fold/unfold them from the provided pouch but the price and sound quality compensate that "con"

                        No issues with B&H purchase and headsets were shipped/delivered on time.

                          This is a great set of economical head phones.While not sound cancelling, once placing them on my ears, the sound was brilliant. They were comfortable to wear and easily stored. I use them predominantly at night, when I can't sleep, and watch to watch a movie on my smart phone without waking my wife. These head phones are the best and would recommend them to everyone.

                            Being traveling overseas 4 to 5 times a month the compact folding size is a big plus.
                            The sound is good and they are comfy even if you wear it for several hours.

                                  I got tired of breaking other non-very-portable headphones like Sony 7502s and went with these after testing many non-in-ear types. The bass is more than fine given the small size diaphragms. They are clear and warm if lacking that extended crystalline quality to the highs you'll hear with something like pricier Denon dynamic types (very smooth) or Sony Pros (harsher). They are not balanced with a strong lower mid hump, necessary to not make them sound pip-squeak, but the mid isn't recessed at all and the highs are adequate if a bit grainy. They lean towards warm and dark but not muddy. They give vocals a huskiness, even female, but this is better than thinness. Ipod touch drives them just fine. After living with them a while I've no regrets and still surprised at the performance/size/price. If you weigh those three things properly these are exceptional. Hate the volume pod, should come with a hard case. Went upstairs and got me a Pelican 1030 which fit these well and now the only way I'll break them is if I break my head while wearing them.

                                  Comments about Sennheiser PX 200-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

                                  I bought this to replace my Sennheiser PX 100 for use in circumstances where I need more isolation from ambient sounds, and to keep my music to myself. Despite being both a great fan of my PX 100, and the PX 200 II having a considerably different character (which shouldn't be shocking considering the open vs. closed designs), I like it... A LOT.

                                  The PX 200 II's bass-heaviness will depend upon how well you can get the cups to seal with your ear, unlike the PX 100, which is kind of independent of that and just depends on being aimed at your ear canals. That said, to my ears, a "normal" seal (achieved by leaving your headphone on for a bit and letting the padded cups sit and warm to your body temp) gives a clean, *slightly* light bass. Cleaner than the PX100's. Like the PX 100's, the 'phones are very musical around the mids, and not particularly detailed around the highs... but not significantly lacking. They're not 'phones to analyze music to (that would be studio monitors and/or high-end cans), but they're ones to enjoy music to in non-audiophile settings/circumstances (i.e. work, or some public place, etc.). Well, anything but bass monster music.

                                  The 'phones feature a similar (and ingenious) folding design like the PX 100's, but this "II" version is now a little more bulked-up to feel more solid... and slightly heavier. The new single-wire design and micro-plug are greatly appreciated, but the integrated volume control is mostly unnecessary.

                                  Downsides. You'll realize how much body heat your ears dissipate, as these 'phones will hold that in. I have to air out my ears and 'phones every so often as to keep from overheating. This isn't really a problem specific to these 'phones, as it is true to all closed cans, and even true to some extent with open ones.

                                    This headset fits well, comfortable for extended use, great volume adjustment on board, very good sound blocking. Single wire to only one side of headset is a big improvement over previous models. I find the sound quality everything that I need. They collapse to fit the included bag which can also include an iPod or digital voice recorder.

                                      Comments about Sennheiser PX 200-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

                                      I regularly hook these up to my workstation at home (built-in audio on an Asus P7H55D-M EVO board), and a Cowon iAudio 7.

                                      I was mainly looking for a set of collapsible headphones with excellent audio quality and a durable cord of decent length.
                                      The PX200II collapses very nicely, and take up very little space in my camera bag or laptop messenger bag.
                                      I am very pleased with the audio quality as well. I wanted a set that allowed me to be audibly aware of my surroundings, and keep the music to my ears only. They are just as good on the train or plane, as they are at home. Actually, I had the volume up pretty high on the plane, but my fellow passengers said they could not hear a thing. Keep in mind, everyone's ears are not shaped the same, so you may have to adjust the headphones to find the sweet spot; once you find it, you won't have to think on it too much the next time.
                                      Also, feeling the bass in my music is not really a priority when I'm walking around, so I was not looking for a lot of bass. I am pleasantly surprised with the bass levels though; they are pretty decent for an on-ear set. Again, you have to find the sweet spot.
                                      The cord seems pretty durable. The length is perfect for my uses as well. I also really like that it only comes out of the left side.

                                      The set is pretty comfortable for me. It only becomes uncomfortable if I fidget around with it, or if I am using them at my desk for the whole day (nothing a few breaks away from the desk couldn't cure).

                                      Out of curiosity, I tested the PX200II on my iPad, and there was a clear difference in what I could hear; compared to my computer or iAudio 7, the output was not as clear, rich, or full. This is not meant as a bash, but meant rather to point out that the hardware of whatever you plug your headphones into, is just as important as the hardware in your headphones. Audio perception varies between individuals however, so definitely try them out first, if you can.

                                      Comments about Sennheiser PX 200-II On-Ear Stereo Headphones (Black):

                                      I was in the market for a set of on ear headphones and reviewed a lot of sets online. These seemed to be the best bang for the buck for the price, quality and brand.

                                      The over all finish is good. The set feels rugged and hard wearing. Ear pads are very soft and comfortable. The wire though looks really weak (though I hope thats not the case!!)

                                      Sound clarity is very good for the size. Though, if you are a base head then these are not for you. The quality of sound is best when the volume of the headset is kept fixed at max output and the volume is adjusted from say your ipod or laptop.

                                      Sound isolation is good considering they are on ear phones, but nothing spectacular. The ears do get hot and a bit uncomfortable when worn for extended periods. In my case if worn for about an hour. But then again all you have to do is pull them off for a few seconds and your good to go.

                                      These sets will not work for people that use them while exercising. The will get too hot and uncomfortable and they tend to slip backwards.

                                      Portability is excellent and beyond reproach, though I wish they'd supply a hard case like they had or rather have for the PX100. The little pouch they supply with the px 200 II offer little by way of protection when thrown into a travel bag.

                                      I would definitely recommend this set of headphones to those of you who are looking for good crisp sound clarity, moderate base, exceptional portability and value for money.
