The Sennheiser HD 219 is an affordable on-ear model designed for any headphone task you want to throw at it. From mobile listening to your iPod or laptop computer to desk-bound duty at home or office, the HD 219 has an exceptionally musical tone at this nice price. Sealed-back earcup design with smaller earpieces offers mild ambient noise attenuation that still allows you to stay in touch with the surroundings -- provided you're not jamming too loud! Comfortable closed earcups minimize audio 'leakage' so you won't disturb cubicle mates with your tuneage.
- Small but comfortable 'on-ear' size
- Plush 'mini' ear cushions and lightweight fit
- Great choice for mobile listening
- Free 2-year Sennheiser warranty
What's In The Box:
- Sennheiser owner's warranty
The less expensive alternative to HD229, the Sennheiser HD219 lowers the price but not the overall performance features of these very small, easily toteable headphones. Although perhaps not quite as well-extended at the edges of the frequency range as its pricier cousin, those are sonic differences that are revealed only if employing uncompressed/lossless audio files or recordings. For most casual mp3, radio/TV or audio book listeners seeking an audibly obvious improvement over 'stock' earbuds or the invariably crappy headphones that came in the box with your player device or audio component, the Sennheiser HD219 delivers clarity and detail in spades along with an 'on-ear' fit designed for max wearing comfort. Bass response is a bit more recessed in the HD219 versus the HD229 so listeners needing intelligibility and resolution may actually prefer these over the thumpier tone of its nearly identical sister model. If you hate the bulky fit of most big headphones, the tidy HD219 ergonomics are lightweight and easy-to-wear for newcomers and those seeking to avoid vise-grip sensations upon the noggin.
The construction of the Sennheiser HD219 portable headphones seems solid but simple with basic slide adjusments for the headband sizing. Earpad and headband cushions are equally simple with durable pleather-type fabric coverings but are quite plushly-padded given the small size. Although the HD219 headphone earcups will not collapse or fully fold down, they do rotate 180 degrees for laying down flat or for easy wearing around the neck when not jamming. The short 4.5ft headphone cord facilitates tangle-free mobile listening on the move. The free Sennheiser manufacturer's warranty stands behind the product for a full 2 years from date of purchase with your HeadRoom '100% authorized dealer' receipt.
