First Look: Sennheiser HD 238i

2:04 /

Priced at more than half the price of Bose's OE2i on-ear headphones, the comparable Sennheiser 238i headphones deliver a lot of bang for your buck.

Hey. I'm David Carnelly, Executive Editor for CNET.com. And I'm going to give you a quick tour of the Sennheiser 238i Headphones that several us here at CNET consider one of the better values in the headphones market. This are on your headphones and the (i enter name?) refers to smart phone friendly features like a microphone and an (in liner?) (??) is design to work with Apple's IOS devices but isn't fully functional with many Android smart phones or tablets. In lot of cases on your headphones with sit flush against your ears are all that comfortable. (??) this Sennheiser's are quite comfortable with nicely patted ear caps and an...a lightweight design. (??) seemed well build in full flat for storage and come with a very basic campus traveling case. If you're looking for downsize some people may find the court a little thin and It doesn't detached from the ear (cap?)...like the (core?) on Bose's more expensive OE2 Headphones. It's also worth mentioning that...cord terminates in a vertical plug rather than an L shape plug which tends to be a little bit more durable. In reviewing Bose's similarly styled OE2i Headphones I noted that they sound more natural and don't suffer from Bose (blout?) a termed (??) for it's obtrusive base boozed. He said Heiser's exhibit similarly detailed sound in Apple but not (??) base. There touch on the warm side and we'll appeal to listeners perform more, laid back, less aggressive headphones with (??) travel. Keep in mind that you shouldn't expect quite the same sound for this Sennheiser's that you would hire a models with retail price of around $200. The point here is while the 238i's don't offer great sound they do deliver very solid performance for there price. No they aren't quite as compact as the Bose's OE2's. And they don't...still waiting to a small caring case. But they do cost a $100 less and offer comparable sound quality...in my book that makes the Sennheiser HD 239i's one of the better bargains in this class of headphones. I'm David Carnelly. Thanks for watching.
