Bottom Line:   
I' m sorry but I will have to TOTALLY disagree with all your negative comments!

I have been dealing with audio since 1991 and I think that all my experience has led me to one conclusion: FLAT is where perfection rests...

These wonders sound like a million bucks to my 35 yr old ears. Yah right, no head-blowing bass here and treble is extended indeed.
The design is perfectly comfortable and light so I may listen to music for ages before I feel like reconnecting to the real world...

Long cable is an extra bonus, very confy indeed.

This baby needs a decent headphone amp to be driven or a high quality source, just like my SA series Marantz SACD.
But it does deliver...and then some. Forget these multi thousand towers called speakers. If those were anywhere as flat and realistic as these cans I would be extemely happy.

If you prefer bass heavy and coloured sound you can look elsewhere. But I can bet my speakers, if you partner these headphones with a quality music source, you will be in for a VERY pleasant surprise...

Cheers!

If you are looking for extremely comfortable, low cost that sound fairly good these are the perfect headphone.

I do not understand some of previous reviews. The bad review are probably due to the price class competition. In the $50 price range people expect loud bass heavy headphones that drive with low power. In reality the flat frequency response is more common to much more expensive headphones.

In reality the response of these headphones is very flat even compared to headphones costing twice as much. The bass is not weaker...its even...the way it is supposed to be. The midrange is very transparent and the highs are high in some place and lower in others.

Make sure you break them in. Connect them to a stereo at slightly louder volume than normal and leave them there all night.

Start using them after a FEW HOURS will notice how your ears still do not hurt and the sound is transparent and the bass is not shaking your head. All in all they are very friendly to use.

These are ideal for work: listening to jazz, classical and lite rock.

I double dog dare you to find any headphones this comforatble in this price range that sound this good.

Bottom Line:   
These headphones are very decent providing
you plug them into an A/V or two channel
stereo receiver! If, however, you use them
with a portable CD player or Sony Walkman
cassette player -- FORGET ABOUT IT !! The sound quality deteriorates immediately. A quality amplifier results in quality sound inside these headphones. It's really that simple! Garbage in, garbage out. Use this well engineered, well designed component and, maximize its overall good quality. Period!

Bottom Line:   
I actually got onto sennheiser when i bought (fairly randomly) a pair of hd200's for my girlfriend for her cd player. Blown away by what they could do I had to have better, and from what I'd read (via senn's website) the eh2200's seemed like the natural progression. AU$50 and on paper seemed better.

However after a few listening tests it was obvious that the eh's couldn't keep up with the 200's in almost every way. The bass is pathetic, very nice on the extreme lows and at excessive volume levels but otherwise it's just dead right through the middle low-end range. The treble at very high volume levels however is just painful.

Bottom Line:   
These Sennheisers looked great at the beginning but now that i reflect back on it, it seems that I shouldn't have purchased it for the uses I'm putting it through. I'm a mp3, MD, and CD listener and with the occasional DVD use through my laptop. All sounds that are reproduced are extremely bright and clear, treble is definitely not lacking. Especially with classical music, it can bring out the best in any violin or strings section. For contemporary music, though, it fails miserably with bass. Bass becomes muddled and lacks warmth. It definitely seems to be "straining" for something it can't do. Grab these headphones if you want to hear music with focus on clarity or DVD movies with alot of spoken dialogue. Stay away from it if you want to put it through its paces with media that contains alot of bass.
