  • Excerpt: Sennheiser and I have always admired each other. This company creates great products year after year. The HD 449 is no exception. It produces very good sound and is comfortable to wear for long periods. Performance for price is hard to match.

  • 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.

DECENT headphone for the money.

  • 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
  • Cons: Too Much Ambient Noise

Solid value, Clean Sound

  • 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
  • Cons: Flimsy Cord

  • Summary: I'm not experienced in this field so I will mostly talk about the characteristics of the headphones that don't have to do with sound.  But I will still talk about the sound as best to my abilities.  I also would take my descriptions of the sound as a generalization rather than specifics because I said before I have little experience and would hardly call myself an "audiophile".   Packaging and Accessories Comes in a simple plastic box surrounding the headphones.
  • Pros: Great detailed sound, very modern looking, good isolation, feel solid in the hands
  • Cons: So far not good with all genres (especially ones with electric sounding instruments), padding feels stiff

  • Summary: I'll give a quick overview of my thoughts on the 449's here, but if you want a full review, you can check out a complete breakdown here:   HD 449 Review   My quick thoughts on the HD 449 is that it has a decent sound in that it's tonally accurate as it has a very neutral sound.  The bass, midrange and treble are all well balanced throughout the volume range but overall the sound just lacks that level of detail that gets you tapping your feet and nodding your head.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Neutral, Balanced, Stylish
  • Cons: Cheap build quality, Flat/unexciting sound, Low sensitivity, Narrow ear pads

  • Summary: Just got the headphones. It took me a great deal to settle with them as these are my first headphones in this price-range.Till now I was using the HD201 headphones from Sennheiser, but wore off the last pair so decided to try out something new. Confort As other Sennheiser models, earcups rotate and tilt. Headstrip is padded, and adjustable in length, gives a good but not too firm grip. I have a big head and they fit me perfectly. The earcups are oval and a bit small.
  • Pros: Good isolation. Extension cable and pouch are nice touch
  • Cons: None so far, than again, what do I know
