>> Hey, what's going on everyone? I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET.com. Today, we're checking out the Ultrasone HFI-2200 Headphone. Now, the 2200's are an open back pair of headphones which means that they really won't do a great job of drowning out noise around you nor will they do a good job of preventing others around you from hearing what you're listening to. That said though, we really like the retro design of the headphones and they easily fold up and fit into the included carry-on bag that Ultrasone provides. The ear cuffs and the headband are cushioned by a smooth velvet pad. They're really comfortable. It's almost easy to sometimes forget you're actually wearing them. The 2200's come with a 15-foot cable. It screws into the left ear cup and you can actually buy a shorter cable from Ultrasone direct for use for something like an iPod. Now, you're gonna use that shorter wire with an iPod because these headphones sound great when we use it with our iPod. Overall sound quality was excellent and the 2200's were able to deliver a very rich sounding base. Every source we actually threw out the 2200's round up sounding fantastic. Overall sound quality was excellent. I'm Jeff Bakalar and this has been the Ultrasone HFI-2200 headphones. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
Ultrasone's top headphones sound like a set of high-end speakers.
The Ultrasone Signature Pro is a German-made Mercedes class set of headphones built for a discerning clientele.
While they're no bargain, the Bose QuietComfort 15s currently offer the best sound and silencing capabilities in a pair of noise-canceling headphones.
The Radius Atomic Bass earphones for iPhone are a worthwhile upgrade from the stock earbuds that comes with the phone; they're comfortable, stylish, and offer great sound for the money.
Ultrasone's full-size, closed-back HFI-580 headphones create a private listening space between your ears.
B&W's P5s aren't cheap, but they're well built, and they offer a unique design, rich sound, and a built-in microphone for making calls.
The SRH1440 headphones are comfortable and ruggedly built with highly detailed sound that will surely thrill audiophiles.
The Nike Aero Sport Headphones may not sound great, but they're an inexpensive option for fitness fiends who dig on the super sleek, ultra sweatproof design.
The Skullcandy Double Agent headphones offer a unique and stylized all-in-one design, but they're not particularly comfortable, and sound quality is subpar. Unless your main goal is to do away with wires and stand out from the crowd, these are not the best option.
CNET's David Carnoy already likes these light, very comfortable, and great-sounding $350 headphones from Sennheiser.
