Summary: The Sennheiser HD 229 are decent headphones for working out at the gym, relatively lightweight and comfortable, with good sound quality. I don't like earbuds or other headphones that stick into my ears, so I appreciate the on-the-ear design. They block out most of the ambient noise in the gym, including the overhead music. Visually they look OK to me, nothing special, though I bought them more for functionality than appearance.
Pros: Block Ambient Noise, Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Great product, but I got them for my son and beware! If you are male as they are not red. They are actually PINK and because of this I had to use modelling paint as he would not use them until the pink was hidden.
Summary: Bought these for my daughter for Christmas, she love's them. They are very comfortable on the ears which was important as she has them permanently attached. The lead is a good length and she's happy with the sound quality. Most importantly I can't hear any of her music even when she's sitting right next to me.
Summary: I ordered this product for my son . When I first saw the headphones in the plastic packaging ( no box) they just looked so cheap and not at all worth the price ! I never got round to the quality of sound etc as I gave them straight back .
Summary: Bought for my 14 year old Son for a recent trip & he has never stopped using them! I used them and the sound is truly amazing with lots of detail heard in the background. You can wear them for a long time as the ear pads are so soft & comfortable. Compared my Son's last pair of Beats, these are amazing quality. Now using with iPhone, iPad, PC and even his Xbox, although they do not have a mic. Superb Sennheisers and a very easy pick up from Argos - thanks!
