Excerpt: I've had these headphones for about 6 years now and they are one of the best electronic purchases I've ever made. The build quality is outstanding. I don't know how many times I rolled over the cord (in my office chair) or dropped these on a hard surface and they don't show any signs of wear. They represent sound in a very natural/real way.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: Okay, let's start with the build quality. It's very superb. The plastic on the top headband is rugged and very tough and it feels like the cups can stand some abuse for the long run. The cable is very thick, but not as thick as the Beyerdynamic DTX 910, which is a very good thing. As for the sound quality. I'm not gonna lie. When I first got my Ultrasone HFI-450, I thought that it was broken due to limited bass, but after 24 hours, the bass really started to dig deeper.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: Although they are completely different headphones, the 450s remind me of the Sennheiser PX100 - they manage to make every kind of recording/file sound good, even the poorly ripped ones. That and they are just plain "fun" to listen to. But the 450s are in a higher league when it comes to clarity in highs and mids, obviously. Bass is well controlled yet still has good impact. You'd think these cans would retail at a higher price, but it's just right at [$].
Excerpt: Headphones work great and have a good long cord. The faults I have is that for the price [$] they are the basic phones. For this price you would expect individual knobs at each ear to regulate the sound and even a level knob or something.
Excerpt: These headphones have a crystal clear sound and great image and allow you to hear the mix acurately and with less ear fatigue. I use them for recording. I would probably go for the more expensive model next time to get the removable wire feature but this model is an excellent value for the price.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
