I'm looking for opinions on these two pairs of headphones.
I need a pair of over-the-ear headphones for the click during band practice and for playing drums in general. (Also for listening music in general, but band practice will be their main mission.) Because I also wrestle more than I play drums right now, I dont want to buy a nice set of in-ears, just because there is a possibility of me getting cauliflower ear and because of that the in-ears might not fit anymore.
I've tried the HD-202's and the isolation was great! I could hear the band and the click equally well and I didnt need ear plugs or anything for added sound blockage.
Now, you might think that I should get the HD-202's then.
Problem - the price.
Around here, 202's cost 40€ and 201's cost 26€. For a student with a low budget, that's a price difference I will feel.
I've heard that the 201's are a bit worse in the isolation department, but how much worse, if anybody has had experience with both pairs?
Also, if you know any other headphone sets, which isolate as well as HD-202, let me know! But I'm warning you, Estonia = crap selection.
Tl;dr version: Sennheiser HD-202 vs HD-201 - which is better regarding isolation and bang for the buck?
