Bottom Line

The Sennheiser HD 201 is a decent budget headphone that delivers decent sound, but may be too bright for some and may not offer much noise isolation.

The Sennheiser HD 201s received positive reviews for their price, with users finding they deliver a good bang for the buck. Users also described them as offering a decent overall sound. Their comfort and lightweight build was also a plus for users. However, users did find that they lacked quite a bit of bass and they were rather sibilant due to their added brightness. They are also closed-back headphones but don’t isolate audio too well according to some users. The Sennheiser HD 201s are budget closed-back headphones that offer a decent bang for the buck.
