I currently own both, as well as the the HARX700, and I find the build quality on the 202 to be slightly better, but you wont find terribly good craftsmanship on either the 201 or 202.
The 201 are essentially more musical; the highs and mids are much crisper than the 202. The 202 are DJ headphones, so it has better bass response which is good for gaming and listening to hip/hop. The bass does get kind of muddy and boomy.
As far as comfort goes, I like the 201's very much. I have big ears and the 201s fit around them very well.
Distortion at high volume is a problem with both these headphones, but for the buck, they cannot be beat, especially that the HARX is sold out everywhere!
I recommend a pair of 201s. For 15 dollars, they are worth every penny.Edited by youra6 - 1/5/11 at 11:20pm
