Conclusion: Before buying these, I had 219's for several years and thought that they were very good; but, the 449's are even better. I listen to classical and jazz; and can hear bette depth and detail. They are light and comfortable, even when worn for light exercise at the YMCA.
Conclusion: Purchased headphones in a package with amp and carry case The head have good sound but cannot handle the amp to well Any music with deep base will distort the headphone to the point where I fear they will break Thank you Frisco
Conclusion: Quite balanced, not bass-heavy, very clear and pretty immersive soundstage. Plastic is pretty durable, but feels as if it could break easily after some use. Pads seal well, but wrapping is thin and may break after some use.
Quality headphones at good price. Clear and good quality sound

Summary: Quality headphones at good price. Clear and good quality sound. Easy comfortable fit for even people with large ear lobes. But does gets sweaty with time depending on the humidity and temperatures of one's place since it's not cloth or authentic leather (Obviously not at this price point).
