After our video review for the Sennheiser Momentum, we decided to take a closer look at SoundMAGIC’s fantastic full size, open back headphones, the SoundMAGIC HP200 Headphones. I hope you’ll find the review useful, we sure had lots of fun making it!
SoundMAGIC’s HP200 headphones give a great sound and are a fantastic addition to any audiophile’s set-up. With natural sound, wide soundstage and excellent detail resolution the HP200 has an engaging sound that will satisfy even the most discerning music lover.
The open design gives the music some breathing space, giving it a natural sound which is warm and balanced, while the low impedance of the HP200 makes them suitable for use with portable players without the need for further amplification.
Generously padded earcups and adjustable headband provide for a comfortable listening experience, even during longer listening sessions. The design and build of the HP200 is very solid, and the earcups swivel so the HP200 can easily be stored in the included hard case.
Along with the HP200’s 1.2m cable there is a 3m extension cable and 6.3mm adaptor included for home listening, while those with the travel bug might take advantage of the flight adaptor, along with the sturdy case.
The HP200 is an open-back model; this headphone type is generally though of as better for natural-sounding music, but if isolation is required (for instance for use while commuting) then I would recommend the SoundMAGIC HP100.
