Senheiser much better musical performance than Sony which is mediocre.

The best headphone covers the entire ear like a cup, and does not press foam pads against the ear.
Listening for long hours with foam against the ear can become extremely painful.
And so 201 or 280 is a good low budget choice.

Sony does not have a Hi Fi sound, although technical specs are good, it just sounds "cheesy." I think Sony Video is a good choice, but not audio.

Sony use to have a good reputation not any longer even in the video field.Their quality control went down hill quite a bit.

you are absolutely true, i bought a pair of sony headphones but in was busted in 3 months. i went to sony center , guess what their reply was: there is no warranty for headphones so they cant service it. now iam using sennheisers hd 203 & hd 429, they extremly good.

I have a pair of V-Moda ear buds that have a much better sound quality than these headphones. Don't waste your money.
