HD 218: dynamic bass reproduction
Its full sound and dynamic bass reproduction keeps you in the groove even when you're on-the-go. The closed ear cups screen out noise pollution, such as the clatter of the train, the chatter of the people sitting next to you and ambient street noise. The HD 218 doesn't just sound good, however; it looks good, too, with its stylish black over-ear design.
HD 228: first-class bass performance
The stylish HD 228 delivers rich bass for sound you'll love to listen to all day long. High-performance neodymium magnets guarantee a crystal-clear stereo sound with first-class depth reproduction. Like the HD 218, the closed headphone design blocks out distracting noise for uninterrupted listening; plus, those around you can enjoy their peace as you rock out to the latest downloads. The extra soft ear pad cushioning also allows the HD 228 to be worn comfortably for hours on end.
HD 238 Precision: high resolution stereo sound
Just relax, lean back and enjoy first-class sound quality-your favorite music has never sounded like this. The HD 238 Precision is a winner thanks to its balanced stereo sound - whether you're at home or out and about. Its sound properties are optimized for both portable devices and for connecting to a home-based sound system. An improved transducer with high-performing neodymium magnets and a frequency response from 16 to 23,000 Hz ensures concise and accurate aural indulgence. And it's not just the sound that's a delight: the high-end headphones have an Open-Aire• design and combine a classic look with high-quality, stabilizing metallic elements. And when you're on the go, simply pop the HD 238 back into its protective black pouch. Now, doesn't that sound good?
