NCIX.com: Sennheiser HD 205-II Headphones Were $99 | Now $39 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)
I think if myself as the headphone matchmaker. Besides my own 'mild' obsession with headsets, I have set up several of my friends with headsets they love. Right now, NCIX.com has discounted the Sennheiser HD 205-II Studio Grade DJ Headphones from $99 down to $39 with free shipping.
Various headsets are always going on sale, therefore I needed to price compare this exact model of Sennheiser to see if this was a good deal. I found the Sennheiser HD 205-II headset for the following prices at other online retailers.
- $78.52 @ Amazon Canada
- $99.99 @ The Source Canada
- $99.99 @ Staples Canada
When the next cheapest headset is nearly double the price of NCIX.com's deal, then you know you have found a great offer.
I am a big fan of Sennheiser, though I have yet to own the brand myself. I recommended a set to a dear friend of mine about four months ago. He was thinking of buying some Skull Candy headphones, but I successfully talked him out of those.
I pointed out that Sennheiser has a superior frequency response. This gives you a better range and, with such a range, your headset is more responsive to highs and lows. Most standard headsets come with a minimum frequency response of 20 Hz and a maximum frequency response of 20 kHz. These 205-II headphones have a frequency response of 14 Hz to 20 kHz. Even for $39, you are getting a better response range than many $100 headsets.
The headset features the studio-style rotatable ear cup so you can listen with only one ear. This is a funky design as, when the ear cup rotates, the ear pad remains in contact with your head for comfort and stability. Even if you are not a DJ... this allows you to communicate with others without taking the headset off and without experiencing any discomfort when removing the headset from one ear.
Commenters are pretty succinct in their reviews. One reviewer said:
-good sound overall
-nice and compact
-doesnt crush your head
Other reviewers thought the bass was awesome and found the quality very good for the price. One person bought these for $50 not too long ago, so I think $39 is a great deal for this set of Sennheisers. The HD 205-II comes with a protective pouch for storage and a locking 1/4" adapter.
While this headset is in stock, it qualifies for free shipping.
