Part 5: A Review of Four Compact Sealed Headphones: The Sennheiser PX 200-II.

Wow ... just wow.  I don't think I've ever heard sealed headphones this small sound this good. Nor can I recall ever holding a headphone this small that has felt as sturdy and well built, or that looked this cool. Sennheiser really brings it with these cans!

Well, with the better --- much better :deal --- sound quality, and significantly improved design and build of the PX 200-II, I can only strengthen that recommendation.
[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="298" caption="Frequency Response of the Sennheiser PX 200-II"] Frequency Response of the Sennheiser PX 200-II[/caption]The sound quality of these cans are stunning; very evenly balanced across the entire audio spectrum with only the slightest boxieness that you'd only really hear relative to much better headphones well above this category. Bass is tight and responsive; mids are clear and uncolored relative to the other cans in this category; and the highs are smooth and natural. The dynamics of the PX 200-II are also amazing, with snare drum and piano hit delivering eye-blinking impact exactly when called for; and imaging and coherence producing stable and layered spacial presentation. I could go on, but I won't bother. At this point it's a no brainer, if you want a small sealed headphones that folds up to conveniently fit in a backpack (in fact, even a shirt pocket) the new PX 200-II from Sennheiser is simply perfect.It gets my highest recommendation. :thumb

Fostex TH-610 Review
Fostex TH-610 Review

The Fostex TH-610 full-size closed headphone incorporates the new ‘Bio-Dyna’ diaphragm taken from the upscale Fostex TH-900 MkII, but at a way lower price than that flagship model. The Fostex TH-610 musical performance is just a notch below the pricey TH-900, making it a truly excellent bang-for-the-buck value.
