  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I got HD 457 from my friend and thought that I can use that at my workplace and in trains to listen to the music. The build quality is not very great, which plastic feeling everywhere. The size of the headphone is quite large, with flat big ear cups sits on your ear, not around your ear.

  • 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.
  • Pros: price,comfortable
  • Cons: -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -

  • 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.
  • Pros: Good quality sound for a good price
  • Cons: None

très en dessous du HD497

wolff67, Ciao
26 August 2007
  • 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.
  • Pros: légereté, adapté aux sources portables
  • Cons: registre grave exagéré, manque flagrant d'aigus
