Sennheiser HD 201

OK, I spent quite a lot of time looking around today, and finally bought myself a brand new Sennheiser HD 201. The sound quality is really good, it covers my whole ear so I don’t have to deal with a lot of ambient noise, and it’s light. I think these are the best headphones for […]
