Headphone baru dari Sennheiser, looks like a portable headphone karena ukurannya ga segede seri HD senn, tp ga se-ramping seri PX. Itung2 mayan untuk nambah daftar mainan disini, he3  >:D



Spec dapat dilihat di site : http://www.sennheiser.com/

Looksnya mirip2 bose kalo menurut saya, tp mayan keren karena biasanya kan design Senn lebih "tradisional" untuk seri2 HD-nya IMO.

Berdasarkan overview yang ada di website Sennheiser, seri HD ini kayanya lebih menekankan Bass-nya. HD 218 dan HD 228 merupakan tipe closed, sedangkan HD 238 merupakan tipe open. Untuk HD 238 precision, kayanya sih flagship Senn utk seri ini.

SQ-nya belum bisa kasih tanggapan selain overview dari web Senn dan headroom, soalnya belum pernah nyobain :P. Tapi weekend kemarin di dusit mangga dua sempet liat HD 218, tapi ga liat HD 228 dan HD 238. Makanya jadi penasaran  :)

Bottom line, secara looks, me likey, secara SQ, me don't know. Ada yang udah pernah coba? Kira2 gmn ya soundnya?

Overview dari headroom untuk :
- HD 218[spoiler]Sennheiser HD 218

Engineering inexpensive products to sonically perform well is no simple task but the headphone research gurus at Sennheiser in Germany are all over it. The HD218 is an extremely impressive little sealed-earcup can offering a 'hardly-there' comfortable lightweight fit and great sound quality at the pricepoint. The deeply padded, small supra-aural earcups do a solid job at nicely attenuating ambient noise while minimizing dreaded headphone leakage to your neighbors. Very clean-toned and detailed up & down the frequency range, this is a superb 'entry-level' portable headphone for commuters, collegians, and economy-minded listeners seeking significantly improved sound from their iPod, iPhone, or Mp3 player at minimal investment.

The Sennheiser HD218 come in a cool grey-matte color and employ a newly-designed, extremely ergonomic headband construction that is secure on the head, fully stable during active movements, and exerts only a very light clamping pressure on the ears. The HD218 offers respectable ambient noise attenuation ratings for such a small-sized can; listeners can typically expect about -8dB to -10dB of noise reduction. The earpads will rotate flat for ease of transit or storage. The efficient 24-ohm impedance and high 108dB sensitivity ratings ensure robust performance from basically any audio source without a headphone amp required. The HD218's single-sided cord exits from the left earcup -- no messy "Y" cable tangling! -- and the overall cable length is approximately 4ft long and terminates to a 'mini-plug' 3.5mm (1/8") right-angled connection. However, keep in mind NO full-size 1/4" plug adapter is provided in the package. A 2-year product warranty remains standard on all Sennheiser headphones.

Value Rating:4.0 out of 5.0[/spoiler]
- HD 228 [spoiler]Sennheiser HD 228

The Sennheiser HD228 headphones will slay the headphones that came with your iPod, iPhone, Mp3 device, DVD player, or laptop computer without heavy wallet lifting required. Cleanly textured and fully punchy bass response alongside a smooth, crisp upper midrange & highs make this a really fantastic-sounding headphone at the pricepoint and a good-performing candidate for any music genre. The HD228's heavy neodymium magnets are specially tuned to deliver rich low-frequency response without mush or bloat so it's the perfect miniaturized portable can for bass lovers who don't want to give up anything in the treble ranges. Sennheiser's newly-engineered lightweight, flexible headband construction is another huge design plus that allows anyone to wear this mobile-oriented headphone comfortably for hours at a time without worries of an overly-tight clamping force getting in the way of your musical enjoyment.

The HD228 is offered in a stylish dark gloss black with chrome-flashing look that is slick but not overstated so it doesn't attract too much undue attention. The HD228's small supra-aural sealed-back [aka 'closed'] earpads typically will rest gently on the outer part of the earlobes and deliver effective ambient noise attenuation of around minus -8dB ~ -10dB on average. The earpads will rotate flat for ease of transit or storage. The HD228's singled-sided cable exits from the left earcup and terminates to a mini-plug 3.5mm (1/8") jack about 4ft later. However, NO full-size 1/4" adapter is included in the package. A 2-year product warranty remains standard with all Sennheiser headphones.

Value Rating:4.0 out of 5.0[/spoiler]
- HD 238 [spoiler]Sennheiser HD 238

We all want to plug in our new headphones and get that "WOW!" experience at the least possible expense. Luckily for our wallets, Sennheiser's R&D department has produced a real sound quality stunner with their recent HD238 model. Offering perhaps the best audio performance available at this size and price, the HD238 delivers a wonderfully musical, fully detailed presentation that remains neutral, articulate, and tonally transparent throughout all frequency ranges; those are impressive musical characteristics, especially at this pricepoint. Crisp dynamic highs and richly punchy bass bracket a clean midrange that exhibits little trace of graininess or distortion even at loud listening levels. The HD238's featherweight headband design is another Sennheiser materials lab marvel and makes this one of the most comfortable 'on-the-go' mobile-oriented headphones we've worn even during long listening sessions. The open-back (no isolation) small on-ear earcups are very thoroughly padded, quite comfy, and will provide a secure fit no matter the size of your noggin. A great step forward in high-performance/high-definition small headphones, the affordable HD238 will please seriously demanding listeners as well as those just wanting supreme comfort and killer sound from their iPod, Mp3, laptop/PCs, or portable player devices.

The Sennheiser HD238 comes in a a black-grey matte color with a silver mesh screen covering the open-backed supra-aural earcups. The headband adjusts for size and is outfitted with deeply padded foam/fabric cushions that are a cut above the pads found on many other portable-oriented headphones. The cushions are easily replaceable when they wear out. The HD238 are also extremely efficient cans rating at 32 ohms impedance and 114dB sensitivity, ensuring excellent performance from even very weak-amped (portable) audio sources. The HD238's non-detachable headphone cord is just over 4ft long and terminates to a straight 3.5mm (1/8") mini-plug. However, NO full-sized 1/4" plug adapter is included in the packaging. A handy travel/storage bag is provided. The strong 2-year manufacturer's warranty remains standard with all Sennheiser headphone products.
