I have compared two pairs of headphones of various brands — Sennheiser HD 200 Pro vs Audio-Technica ATH-M30x. They both are closed back and wired. The wearing style of these devices is over-ear. Let's see what is especially different between them.
One of the main features of any headphones is sensitivity. Audio-Technica ATH-M30x has 96 dB, while the appliance made by Sennheiser has 108 dB. However, the first one has a wider frequency response — 15 Hz – 22 kHz compared to Sennheiser HD 200 Pro that has a range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz. Speaking of impedance, the headphones by Audio-Technica have 47 Ohm, while the other ones have 32 Ohm.
The sound of Sennheiser HD 200 Pro is super clear and it is not overwhelmed by the bass at all. It sounds reasonably flat and the music is not overly colored.
The headphones Audio-Technica ATH-M30x provide a very rich and detailed sound, also they have great bass. With this appliance, you get amazing clarity and well-balanced sound. I've realized that the treble response here is well defined.
One of the biggest benefits of Audio-Technica ATH-M30x vs Sennheiser HD 200 Pro is the fact that it folds. There is no significant difference between their weight, as the first headphones weigh 220 g and the second ones — 184 g.
You can control the height of the adjustable headband. It is covered by soft material and there is a lot of room for adjusting. Both devices come with a detachable cable. The length of the wire of Audio-Technica ATH-M30x and Sennheiser HD 200 Pro is 3 m and 2 m respectively. The first one might be too long for some users.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M30x is better headphones in this comparison. Check Audio-Technica ATH-M30x price
