Sennheiser HD 238 headphones

The Sunday Times InGear section rated these lightweight headphones their Best Buy in August 2010 - "Classy and comfortable - excellent all-rounders for most genres of music. Five stars."

And one Amazon customer wrote: "Both my wife and i have a pair of these headphones and we really like them. We were fed up with my son forever borrowing them that we decided to get him a pair and he is really delighted."

With a smart black and metallic design, clear treble response and full-bodied bass, the Sennheiser HD238 are THE headphones for those who love to listen to their MP3 players on quality over-ear headphones.

If you've suffered from ill-fitting in-ear noise cancelling headphones in the past, these lightweight, comfortable noise-isolation Sennheiser headphones are a joy to wear. They are so light, you hardly know you're wearing them, and the cushioned earpads are so well padded, they are really comfortable to wear even on the longest train or plane journey.

Sennheiser HD 238 headphones features Sennheiser's advanced acoustic system which includes lightweight diaphragms and powerful neodymium magnets for a full and realistic sound every time, even from low-powered MP3 players, smart phones or CD players.
