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.
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 own a bulky pair of Sony V700's - you know the big silver DJ ones. I wanted a smaller, alternative pair; something I coud use on the move, without fear of being mugged or simply attacked for having good taste in headphones. So, I decided to try out these fellas from Sennheiser.
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: 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.
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 .
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...
Sennheiser quality for sure - a rich, well-balanced sound

Summary: First of all let me say I am picky about my sound quality, whether in my car, at home or when using headphones. With that caveat read on! My previous Sennheiser headphones, HD414x's from about 1976 (yes, really) have done me sterling service (with a couple of foam ear-pad replacements) so I was...
Summary: In simple terms, this is great set of comfortable headphones with a warm, rich sound and loads of bass. With a variety of music styles (OK, mainly metal) the sound is excellent, and the bass manages to be loud and controlled at the same time.
