Accessory of the Week: Epically cool Sennheiser headphones
There's no escaping it, headphones are every bit as much the accessory now as a wristwatch or a backpack. Mainly thanks to Dr Dre. Here are some of the best.
There's a few main things we want our headphones to have - great sound quality, sturdiness and a seriously cool look. There really is only one headphones maker that delivers on all three: Sennheiser.
They may be the Grandaddy of headphones, but damn they still have it. And you know what makes this accessory of the week even better? They're all on sale!
As part of the excellent Arnotts Summer Sale you can bag one of these bad boys for 10 per cent less than their normal price. Nice one.
If all that doesn't excite you then you'll have to check to make sure you're a self-respecting man. Take a look at this bad boy, the Sennheiser HD 220 Originals Blue Headphones are a seriously cool bit of kit to wrap 'round your lobes. Apart from the look, they also deliver enough bass to properly enjoy your favourite tracks. They're normally €64.99, but you can get your hands on them for €58.49 from Arnotts online and in store.
Now if you're looking for something a bit more subdued, but still want the brilliant sound quality then the old reliable Sennheiser HD 201 Headphones. The basic design may have been around for quite a while now, but you're not going to get a better sound at such a bargain price. The HD 201s are yours for €22.49 from Arnotts in store or online.
If you've got a couple of extra quid languishing in your pocket then the Sennheiser HD 215 Headphones will deliver the kind of sound quality you could have only dreamt of before. They also have an little extra bonus for anyone who works with audio on a regular basis... a rotatable ear cup for one-ear listening. No more of this bloody one ear on, one ear off nonsense. Ideal for DJs and regular punters alike, the HD 215s are available from Arnotts Summer Sale for €80.99.
Now, we've neglected our old friend, the in-ear headphones. The Sennheiser MX 365 Headphones are great for the daily commute or the all too irregular trips to the gym. They come in six colours and are now a steal at just €15.29, and you can get them either online or in store.
