IGNORE MY RATINGS

 

I reserved these but they were a lot smaller than expected as I wanted something that would cover my entire ears. Sennheisers are generally very good and reliable headphones so I do not doubt their performance, i did not use them however so ignore my...

Sennheiser HD229 On-Ear Headphones - Black and Red

black and red headphones

 

Great product, but I got them for my son and beware! If you are male as they are not red. They are actually PINK and because of this I had to use modelling paint as he would not use them until the pink was hidden.

Not what I expected

 

I ordered this product for my son . When I first saw the headphones in the plastic packaging ( no box) they just looked so cheap and not at all worth the price ! I never got round to the quality of sound etc as I gave them straight back .
