Summary: Sennheiser, being a German company adhere to function over form. So when beats took the world by storm, the HD 418s were their conservative attempt at adding flair to their products. The result actually looks silly, flames on the side of my headphones?
Summary: Sennheiser's HD418 headphones are sturdy and (arguably) stylish. Reasonably cheap for full-size closed headphones, they'd make a good accompaniment to a commuter's laptop or MP3 player as long as sound quality isn't a huge concern.
