Best I'VE ever heard

Robert R., Newegg
31 March 2008
  • Summary: Listen up, literally! You JUST don't know unless you can compare a few sets, and I bought a few sets including this one, the Sony "monitoring headphones" MDR-V150 (Bassy and flat in mids and highs), the "Ice tech Vibe" (Electronically rumble with AAA batteries, gaming only, terrible music sound...
  • Pros: Durable, comfortable, long cord, very good bass handling (tight and punchy) with crisp mids and highs.
  • Cons: Wasn't free? (I always thought that was silly (sic) and here I said it)

Super headphones for $25

Hojoon K., Newegg
27 March 2008
  • Summary: This was my first pair of headphones. I had a pair for gaming back in 2002. Going to countless tournaments, these headphones took some heavy abuse but served me well for almost 2 years. I also enjoyed it for music quite often. Should these be compared to other Sennheiser line-ups? By all means, NO!
  • Pros: Good sound for its price, especially in bass department. Very sturdy, yet flexible. Easy on the eyes. Great for gaming. Extremely comfortable.
  • Cons: Mine died after 2 years of heavy use and abuse but other than that, for this price? NONE!

very comfy!

Andrew H., Newegg
12 March 2008
  • Summary: Overall, these are so cheap that I don't mind them only lasting 2 years. Amazing headphones for the price.
  • Pros: These headphones sound great and don't make my ears hurt during prolonged used. Every other headphone I've used has made my ears hurt.
  • Cons: Only con is that I'm now on my 3rd pair in the past 4 years. These seem to last about 2 years max and then the wires get stretched too much and break.

  • 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.

Good, but not in the long run.

Ashton M., Newegg
3 June 2006
  • Summary: It would be alot nicer if the cord was thicker and they weren't so loose in the slots. They move around too much and come off too easy.
  • Pros: Good bass, good sound, and it fits well. I like headphones that sit on your ear, rather than surround it. These do that perfectly.
  • Cons: The way the buds slide is too easy. They come off of the sides too easy too. I've had it for about 7 months now, and over the past few days the cord has crapped out. I now have no sound out of my left ear so I ordered some HD 515's. They're good for the price, but not good if you want to keep the...

Good headphones for the money

MARCEL T., Newegg
23 March 2006
  • Summary: A8N-SLI Premium nForce4 AMD 3700+ @ 3.01ghz X1900XT 650/1550 Raptor 74GB 10,000RPM G.SKILL 512x2 1.5-2-2-3
  • Pros: These things rock, for the price anyway. I bought them from a dif comppany and they were 2 times the price. great bass, replacable cords if your cat happens to bite them. (AHH THAT CAT IS DEAD NOW BOY.) jk
  • Cons: If you haven't gotten used to the uncomforbility of other headphones these things will hurt. But I don't even notice it anymore, so whatever.

sounds great! but fitting sucks

Robert A., Newegg
31 January 2006
  • Pros: excellent sound, very clear and crisp, makes low quality mp3's noticeable. long cord.
  • Cons: price at the time was $xx i think i paid about 2 years ago or so. but fitting is the worst, they are not adjustable and if you have a large head, dont bother, after 2 minutes my ears burned so bad i wore them around my neck. i tried bending the frame out but no luck. should have returned them asa...
