Sennheiser PMX200 review

Extremely impressive for closed-back headphones Tested at £40.00

What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Extremely impressive for closed-back headphones


  • +

    Detail and rhythm is very good


  • -

    Lose of bass extension and richness

Fancy the Sennheiser PMX 100s but don't want to annoy folk with leaking sound? Try the closed-back PMX 200s instead.

The design is very similar, but you do lose some bass extension and richness, and they sound a bit closed-in. Still, overall detail and rhythm is very good, and for closed-back headphones they're extremely impressive.
