Excerpt: These headphones.are very lightweight and fairly comfortable. I am not savvy about the subject of audiophile matters but I know what sounds are pleasant to me. The HD 449 are excellent but lack base for my taste. Nonetheless, I am satisfied with my purchase and recommend it to others.
Summary: Personally, I bought mine at he-who-shall-not-be-named(Ama-zon) since they had a discount going on for them that put the price at $30 less on these. But even at $120, this is some very good bang for your buck. I'd recommend them for those on a budget of about $120 who want headphones with solid sound and don't want sound leakage and want to be able to block out the sounds around them.
Pros: - Very comfortable. Had nothing to do today so I pulled an all day game fest. Been wearing them for 12 hours straight and still not discomfort.
Excerpt: Pros: excellent sound signature, decent comfort, build quality Cons: noise attenuation, takes a lot to power, doesn't get very loud before the drivers start clipping, doesn't seal well They are an excellent set for the money if you can get them to seal. Maybe its just my head size/shape. I don't recommend these for use in loud environments such as on the bus/train.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: I bought these headphones to review sound for video productions in Forensic Presentations. I was looking for a flat, clean, and even reproduction, especially in voice areas. They performed very well, even at very low and also very high volumes. Very comfortable, which is a big plus after an hour of concentrating on details. One bone to pick, I am disappointed that the cable is of the typical lightweight design, and do not expect it to hold up. Time will tell.
Pros: Balanced clear sound, Clear at extreme levels, Comfortable
