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.
Excerpt: I have owned these headphones for nearly 5 years now. They have had some repairs under the soldering iron but in general i am happy with the performance that the 457's have given. SOUND I think the sound quality is good for the price. Clear mid-range with adequate high range. They do not deliver full and rounded bass, they are happier delivering lean punchy bass. For Rock and Pop they work very well.
Excerpt: SENNHISER HD-457. Very deep sounds of low frequency. This is it but that highlights of these headphones. They are of open type. Comfortable, the arch is very flexible, it is difficult that they break. The earmuffs are pleasant to the tact, with abundant filler. Although their best quality is the drops frequencies, they also respond well in the stockings and high frequencies. Their sound is quite balanced.
Excerpt: Question: How do I write a decent review on a pair of headphones? Answer: With difficulty! Sennheiser is a relatively unknown brand, hence you probably haven't heard of them until know. It is no wonder then that I was optimistic about buying these headphones. These were on offer on Amazon.co.uk about three weeks ago for eighteen quid.
Summary: Je viens de récupérer ce casque de mon père qui l'a acheté il y a 2 mois mais n'en était pas vraiment satisfait. Je lui ai offert un Pioneer SE MJ5 à la place et il a retrouvé la joie de vivre. Du coup il m'a donné ce HD 457 que je me suis empressé de tester, histoire de voir ce qu'il avait dans le ventre par rapport à mon HD497 et à mon HD212Pro. Evidemment, je n'ai pu être que déçu.
