Summary: Very impressive headphones from Sennheiser. They offer a fat, full-bodied sound that I found very much to my liking. They had a solid thump at the bottom end, Led Zeppelin's Kashmir sounded even more powerful and U2's The Fly had an excellent warm bass.
Summary: I tried them out for a bit - they seemed OK, though tend to sit on the ear rather than mould themselves to it. I then handed them over to my teenage daughter who used them extensively - especially while travelling in the back of the car.
Summary: The Sennheiser HD 408 headphones have a lovely crisp sound with a frequency range from 25 - 21,000Hz. With Neodymium magnets, enhancing the base driven sound. The headphones are comfortable, light and have a 1.4m cable which is just right for being on the move.
Summary: These are good 'phones, comfortable, with decent sound reproduction and focus. Optimised for base, meaning the focus is on ipods and such, though they are pretty hefty, so be aware you will be looking like a Cyberman if you take these babies out for a commute.
They look good, feel good and most importantly, sound good.

Summary: I wouldn't normally comment on packaging on a product review, but I have to say that the packaging for these headphones is pretty annoying (as others have commented). I had to cut round the packaging twice with scissors, and then tear open the plastic from the front, not a very pleasant customer...
Summary: The good: Lightweight but sturdy, comfortable, good frequency response, good clean bass. They sound great with both my Zen X-Fi and Yamaha M170. Overall a reasonably good sound at all frequencies with emphasis on the low end.
Good value, excellent bass, lacks last degree of refinement

Summary: First the basics. These are lightweight but full-sized headphones with an open design, meaning that they do not attempt to block out external sounds. The earpads are flat against your ears, rather than enclosing them as with the .
