Not up to par

Overstock

  • Summary: These have Sennheiser on them but aren't worthy of the name. These are cheaply made and fell apart after the first use. I could snap them back together but then the left ear piece wouldn't play. Not worth more than maybe $6 bucks.

  • Summary: The HD 457 is a budget priced open headphone from Sennheiser that aims at bassheads. Most online merchants still have these in stock as cheap as $30. They're basically designed headphones and don't isolate background noise. The headphones are fairly comfortable. They're a bit tight but after streching the headband out a bit they've been comfortable to wear. The build quality seems very good for a cheap headphone.

Great product

  • Excerpt: For me personally music is a huge part of my life and this is why I've always seen headphones as something that I spend silly amounts of money on but for once I decided to try out sennheiser. This decision to change away from my bose system really did hurt my sole a bit but with the recession it one of those things that I saw that I could cut down on. The sennheiser headphones on the other hand do have a slightly cheap feel to them sadly.

They work well so why change them

  • Excerpt: I have had these for atleast 5 years and I have seen no need to replace them. I don't use them as much as I used too. Maybe a sign of old age! They are exactly as the photo above and some might consider the silver colour a bit dated but to use in the house I don't think the styling makes much difference. I am more interested in the conort and performance. The are comfortable.

  • Excerpt: to use a home studio to avoid too much color he'll warm your ears and shake your head and it is a bit heavy to medium porter.le foam is high in calories its low and thereby boosted the treble too low it depends on the use that is actually listen the TV sound, or a player. I use it for 1 year ...

"bassy"

24 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The Sennheiser HD 457 are really good headphones and they are really stylish at the same time. They come with this metallic type finish and look really futuristic. You can use these just to listen to music in your mp3 player, or if you are feeling brave you can mix in them. But they will give your mix a very “bassy” feel to it. Not to sure if t...

" Good helmet"

  • Excerpt: - How long have you use it? For about 5 years - What is so special that you like most and least? + + +: I appreciate its design that allows it to withstand a lot of "abuse" (stays at the bottom of the bag with a foot above example) without flinching. I also like the return of mid and treble on...

Nice set of headphones that combine comfort with low-cost

  • Excerpt: I bought my Sennheiser HD-457 headphones about 2 years ago and they have served me very well since then. I went for a manufacturer that produces quality audio equipment and have not been disappointed. The headphones are at the lower end of the Sennheiser headphone range. There are cheaper models but they are mostly either in-ear, or of the more compact variety. The HD-457's are large and cover the whole ear. I was a bit let down by the plastic body of the headphones.
