Manufacturer's Description:
Finding a decent-sounding sealed headphone is difficult, finding a budget sealed headphone that sounds great is almost impossible. The musical clarity and overall sonic punch of these headphones is extremely impressive. The HD 202s are lightweight but tough - great for keeping the children's video games/DVD watching/ loud music at bay. The perfect gift for all students!

Simple, Modular Design:
The HD202 are all-black in colour and use a very simple three-piece construction consisting of the two earcups and the headband assembly. The earcups attach via little ball-like protrusions that ride in a small groove within the headband; allowing you to make tiny adjustments to the fit for maximum comfort. This design also allows one to remove the earpieces from the headband for compact storage or travelling purposes or for easy replacement of parts.

The Clever Stuff:
The HD202 use a 'closed/sealed' design. They have mid-sized, circular leatherette earpads that nearly surround the ears, but are not quite large enough to prevent the flat part of the earpads from resting gently on the outside part of the earlobes. The result is headphones that have the desirable light weight and small size of an on-ear design, but have the secure fit and comfort of a larger model where the earpads encircle the ear.

 Value headphones don't really get better than this

Got these to replace a knackered gaming headset that I never used the microphone for. Those cost about twice as much as I paid for these, and they're at least comparable in sound quality, possibly better.

Given that I am excessively sensitive to sound due to Asperger Syndrome, it was essential that these blocked out background noise well so that I was not unduly perturbed in noisy environments. They have helped me get through long workdays in an open-plan office and crowded Tube interchanges, probably better than my previous pair.

Obviously as I wear them for literally hours on end I can judge their comfort better than most - it's not perfect, sometimes I have to slip them off my ears for a few seconds, but they're certainly not painful and I'm still happily using them eight hours a day, five days a week, without any problems in durability.

The long cord is a bit fiddly as others have said but they come with a belt strap to wrap them around - although personally I actually find that more fiddly yet, so don't use it anymore. Your mileage may vary.

Ultimately, though, these headphones are worth substantially more than you're paying for them (I paid eighteen quid - they're twenty-five quid at the time of writing and I'd still call that cheap). How can you argue with that?

 Excellent Sound Quality

I bought these headphones to use with my laptop and it is the business. The sound quality is brillaint. I especially like how it cancels out any exterior noise.
so if you have the headphones on you will not hear someone talking, unless they are shouting, which i though ws brilliant feature.

 Pretty Good

I have had these for almost 2 weeks now and have been using them quite frequently.

My first impression of this, is that it is smaller than I expect it to be and they don't quite cover all the way around your ear (so be warned if you are looking for big over-the-ear headphones).

The sound of these are pretty good - I use them for my ipod and computer and I am satisfied with the sound quality and bass.

The sound-isolating is not great, it doesn't block out very much background noise - unless you have the volume on loud...

Overall at this price, these are of great value and they do look good, so its pretty good.

Hope you have found this useful!!

 Good sound but....

The bass on these things are way too heavy most of the time. But that's not the true problem. It's just how immobile, ridiculous looking and uncomfortable they are. Your ears will either not get full surrounded or get so hot an irritated after 10 minutes that you need breaks during listening. Other headphones i've tried don't have this irritating quality, and for £15 you can do way better on play.com.

Add to basket and buy- stop searching!!!!
I was looking for some comfortable headphones firstly for long periods of use that block out background noise and deliver good strong bass. Having tried the 201's i thought i'd buy next ones up in price. I cannot explain how extremely happy i am with these. My sony mdr xd200's allthough were ok i found very 'creaky' (plastic/cheap) . These sit snug and songs from all genres come to life more so and i'm hearing lyrics and small effects i've never previously heard! So if you don't fancy playing 200 pound and fancy putting battery's in your headphones (which i have used) - buy these!!!!!!!!
