    I’m a college student who listens to a lot of hip hop and rap music so I’m one who really appreciates a lot of deep, punchy bass. Over the few months I have purchased arguably three of the most “bass heavy” Sennheiser headphones including the HD 288, HD 212, and PX 100.

    HD 228:
    Unfortunately, the HD 288 did not live up to the “excellent” bass as advertised. The only time that the bass was really prominent was when I pushed both the ear pads and held them against my ears. The headphones also seemed fragile and the ear pads felt like a cheap imitation of the Bose QC3 memory foam.

    HD 212:
    The HD 212 seemed to produce more bass, only because the ear pads were extremely tight around the ears and could only be worn for a short period of time, until causing pain. Also, the headphone cord was extremely long and bulky which was quite annoying when using with mp3 players.

    PX 100:
    Instead of buying any of the aforementioned headphones, I would highly recommend buying the similarly priced Sennheiser PX 100 which I believe pack the same amount of punchy bass, but with a lot more clarity in sound. In addition, the PX 100 are very portable and hands-down the most comfortable and stylish headphones. However, there is one caveat- because these headphones are “open headphones” they do leak a good amount of sound. But, the trade off for such sound leakage is the increased clarity in sound which makes all genres of music sound flawless.

    I bought these headphones after breaking my ear buds, and I am very happy with the decision. I like the closed headphone design because it keeps people from hearing what you are listening to, and keeps you from hearing outside noises. The over-the-ear design is comfortable and easy to wear for an extended period of time.

    As far as construction goes, they live up to Sennheiser’s standards for headphones in this price range. The strap is plastic with swiveling ear pieces and a cable that comes out of the bottom of the left side. The cable length is shorter, but reaches from the bottom of my pockets to my head with some slack still left over. The piece that goes into your music player is a straight piece, which means it will stick out more, but I can get over that. I do prefer the ‘L’ shaped connectors though. The padding on the top and on the ear pieces is covered in a leather-ish covering that is comfortable and seems durable.

    Overall the sound quality is great for this price range. Many ‘audiophiles’ will complain about lack of bass or rough high tones, but truthfully you cannot find a set of audiophile-grade headphones in this price range. The bass is weaker than some other headphones, but still pronounced as advertised. My favorite feature is the noise-blocking capabilities of these headphones. I commute to classes via public transportation, and they keep most of the outside noises from interfering. The cable is a little bit microphonic, so if you don’t have music on, you will hear noise from the cable moving around in the headphones. This problem is easily drowned out by soft music though.

    Overall: I think that this a good set of mid-priced headphones that are perfect for commuters. They are comfortable to wear and sound great.
