Excerpt: Sennheiser enjoys a good reputation in the headphone market and their HD800 and HD650 headphones are known to be some of the best ones around. Of course, we’re talking of really high prices here – the HD800, for example sells for $1499 (roughly Rs.80,000 in India). There are, of course products by Sennheiser that are much cheaper than the HD800. The HD449 is among the newest cans from Sennheiser and they’re priced at Rs.4,990, i.e. fraction of the price of the HD800.
Review: Clarity Comes Naturally On Sennheiser's HD 449s
11 November 2013
Excerpt: Sennheiser is known for delivering exceptional audio quality across the price points, from superb high-end to surprisingly quality low-end. While many sound companies seek to value-add to music by ramping up the bass or tailoring the designs to certain musical genres, Sennheiser often goes the way of sound reproduction rather than sound manipulation.
Pros: Very clear sound from bass to treble with little to no distorting; Extension cable and quarter inch adapter for Hi-Fi; Light, comfortable build
Cons: Volume and depth can be lacking; Bass might not cut it for certain music genres
