Superior fit and comfort for long sessions.
You might wear them for a long, long time, for hours and nights. The HD 200 PRO won’t become a burden, because we designed it with more than 70 years of experience. So we lowered the tension of the headband and chose materials with direct contact carefully. The result: The earpads feel feather-light and perfectly enclose every ear. You might even forget you’re wearing them.
Ambient noise reduction for all monitoring tasks in the studio, live and at home
Speaking of the comfort and earpads: As a monitoring tool, the HD 200 PRO will protect you from any noise that might distract you. The ambient noise reduction helps to create a clean space for your music.
Portable Studio-quality Sound
Sennheiser HD 200 PRO headphones deliver studio-quality sound without breaking the bank. Proprietary neodymium magnets ensure detailed sound with loads of low-end punch. These headphones offer outstanding comfort, courtesy of their light weight and soft ear cushions. Enjoy excellent sonic isolation, by means of a closed-back over-ear design. A robust single-sided cable gives rise to tangle-free, unencumbered movement. In the studio, at your electric piano, or in front of your laptop, Sennheiser HD 200 PRO headphones provide an enjoyable listening experience.
Circumaural vs. supra-aural
In layman’s terms, these words simply mean “over ear” (circumaural) and “on ear” (supra-aural). In the case of headphones, this refers to the design of the earcup, which is the cushion that sits between the headphone’s speakers (drivers) and your ear. Here at Sweetwater, we rarely use supra-aural headphones for professional applications, although they’re great for casual listening — especially if you need to be aware of what’s going on around you. On the other hand, over-ear headphones like these Sennheiser HD 200 PROs offer excellent attenuation of external noise.
Closed-back vs. open-back
Also referred to sometimes as simply “closed” and “open,” this distinction addresses the design of the part of the headphone that covers the area behind the driver in a straight line away from the side of your head. Closed-back headphones like these Sennheiser HD 200 PROs prevent sound from escaping and leaking into your microphone. The downside of this design is that it traps pressure inside the headphone, which creates false low frequencies. These false low frequencies are fine for most uses (and even desirable in consumer products), but less desirable for critical listening.
The Sennheiser story
Sennheiser has been producing broadcast technology products since the 1940s and continues to develop microphone technology and wireless systems. Based in Germany, Sennheiser actually began as Laboratorium Wennebostel, manufacturing tube voltmeters. Microphone production followed shortly, and Lab W microphones quickly became a trusted name in broadcast, movie, and TV production. After adopting the Sennheiser name in 1958, their continued advancements in microphone technology soon made them popular with recording studios. Notable innovations include some of the first RF wireless systems for TV and stage use, the first interference tube mic for movies and TV, and the world’s first open-back headphones.
