Good and lightweight

  • 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.

Quality Sound

Daniel W., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • 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.
  • Cons: - Cheap design and feeling

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

The Forensic Specialist, B&H Photo
24 May 2012
  • 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

Very Nice Cans

Benji, B&H Photo
17 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm not an, "audiophile". I just like music and wanted a set of nice headphones for all the time I spend on airplanes. That means I was willing to spend $100 ish on a set of cans with a closed back and low enough power needs to run off an iPod. If you're like me, you're also looking at the Shure 440s the Sony V650 and maybe some others. I rolled the dice on these and they're lovely. But there are probably no bad decisions at thie price point.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction
