Ok, but probably would hunt around next time. I wouldn’t buy these again if i had the chance. The sound quality is pretty lacking, and the position of the microphone is too far down the cable. Speaking of cable, it is quite small and could easily be broken if i was using these headphones away from an office desk. Decent go over my ears and don’t give me too much head/ear fatigue from wearing for too long, though. They also don’t seem to leak at 25-30% volume from my laptop.

If you listen to a vary of music, these are very good, very well-well balanced headphones. Not as comfy and light as the bose ae2s, but they are in excess of 2 times the price tag. You get a pretty prolonged guide, so careful you don’t get it tangled up. Excellent for ipod and house hello fi.

Made the decision i would give these sennheiser headphone a whirl, as its one of the most highly regarded names in headphones. I havent experienced any past experience in the previous of sennheiser tools, and i was at first shocked by how lightweight these seemed to be. Was expecting them to sense additional stable, now do not get me erroneous, i am not saying by any extend that they really feel low-priced and terrible. Just not the feel i was expecting. To use, they are extremely cozy, with a compact padded cushion on the headband, and properly sized ear ‘cups’ for want of a improved phrase, which are also nicely padded. These have ipod branding on the packaging, but it will not appear that they have long gone out of their way marketing these as a specific ipod accent, but i think they have looked to make these functionality sucessfully with moveable media players, as the cable is thin, light-weight things, as on ipod earphones. To my brain, this alternative of cable allows the headphones down, it appears to be fragile,inexpensive, feels fragile, of course i suppose as it really is got a little three.

I might put in some time investigating and prodding all around different headphones (this was my initially invest in of such an item), with few essential necessities – need to drown out noisy neighbours thumping about, doorway slamming and little ones shouting, should have acceptable duration cable, and ought to be at minimum realistic excellent / sensibly thought of style. I am pretty pleased with them (i’ve waited a several months just before creating a assessment so i could correctly settle into them and the working experience than hurry out an uninformed a person as some people do on the day of acquiring the goods). The audio top quality exceeds the television properly, and as you would probably count on, provides substantially to the gaming experience – as just a person case in point – to keep track of the resources of appears in the sport no matter whether close friend, foe, or ‘other’ very specifically.I’m not the style to pretentiously describe the crispness of the audio to the nth diploma, but realistically, for most people today this would appear flawlessly good – your possess hearing is in all probability extra of a limiting variable. The cable is the suitable length to lounge absent from the tv, with out tripping or tugging the plug out. I would be inclined to agree with other individuals that the cable diameter would be improved, say ps controller cable thick, compared to ipod earphones slim, as you may perhaps have the paranoia of this remaining a susceptible weak issue if you get overexcited or something and place some strain on the guide, dependent on what type of antics you might be getting upto i guess?the padding is excellent, the about the ears style snug for hrs of use at a time if required as these are fairly light-weight far too. You can spend additional and almost certainly get a minor extra (so likely not at a favourable price / benefit ratio), but i personally really don’t see the have to have to. You can fork out a lot less and get a very little less, but i might be wary of shorter cables, comfort and the lower seem quality compromise pitfalls. These seem the goldilocks of headphones for me – ah, just appropriate.

I have these headphones for a secure 4 months and i use them a good deal and in all places. I travel with them, put them in my backpack and use them with my household music studio and i like them. Even if they experience extremely light-weight – they are very good. They really feel really fantastic on your head and they include your ear isolating, so that you can not listen to anything at all but your audio. They even are silent for men and women about you when you might be donning them – you never disturb others with your audio coming from headphonesthe sound is amazing only with an amp. I purchased fiio e6 with them and they seem great. The amp discovers the hidden ability in these headphones. With the amp they are mush louder, crisper and you can get a wealthy powerful bass from them.Fully advocate acquiring a simple 20£ amp with them, you would not regret, variance is extremely visible.

Sennheiser HD429s Universal Over-Ear Wired Headset for Smartphones : The button that costs you more. . There are only 2 difference between the hd429s and hd429 headphones and that’s a “kill cable” in case you catch it on something, (very helpful), and a control button that works with all popular phones including windows phone, android, and iphone/ipod. Where this fails is that the control button lacks any volume control, so if i’m out and about and want to listen to some bon jovi, i can press the button and say “play songs by bon jovi”, but i can’t change the volume to rock out to livin’ on a prayer without fumbling in my pocket to feel for the volume buttons on my ipod 3. The headphones and mic also work on most modern gaming consoles with a mic-input including the nintendo wii-u, nintendo 3ds (xl), nintendo dsi (xl), new 3ds (xl), xbox one, (with adapter), and also ps vita, so you not only get excellent sound from the game but also a microphone to yap with your friends too, it will also work on pc’s if they have the necessary ports and firmware, though this is usually only reserved for more high-end laptops; i’ve found they improve my game when playing resistance: burning skies or make the roars sound so loud on monster hunter 3: ultimate. The sound though is good, and the padding is designed so that they can be used outside even in the rain. As for more detail about the sound, it’s stable for most genres of music and video, and the panning on them is very quick and balanced, the bass is powerful without overpowering the rest of what you’re listening to. The mic is also excellent quality and picks up the voice very clearly. The build is amazing, and the “kill cable”, has come in use for me quite often, meaning that if the long cable, (though not too long), catches on something, rather than rip the headphones off my head and then crash to the floor, all it does is separate the control button cable from the headphone cable, (though it would’ve been nice to have the control button on the headphone part of the cable so you could change the cable and keep the button at will. You can also use the kill cable to use a standard 3. 5mm extension cable for home use where you’re not likely to need the control button, such as listening to tv late at night, and these cables can be bought fairly cheap.

Bestest ergonomics and premium sound. Thanks for the quality and ergonomic feeling. Sometimes i forgot that i have overear headphones.

Overall a very good pair of headphones but leaves something to be desired in the higher volume levels. . It came in very secure packaging and came with detailed instructions and warranty information. The build quality is about what i expected from this price range (sturdy enough to withstand being put in a backpack and hauled around but with flex in the plastic) and the cushioned earpads allow for an uninterruptible listening experience and also allow for listening in any weather. The sound quality is amazing at low to medium-loud volume with slight distortion at very high volumes, i mainly use the headphones during travel alongside spotify premium on my android phone and the pairing and song changing/pausing controls work fantastically. My only qualm with the controls is that they do not have volume control, although i dont change my volume much. I have used the mic on multiple occasions for phone calls and it works as expected. Good but not fantastic mic quality. The reason for 4 stars is the distortion at higher volumes and the lack of volume controls.

Genuinely some of the best headphones i’ve ever invested in – fantastic comfort, fit and sound quality.
Genuinely some of the best headphones i’ve ever invested in – fantastic comfort, fit and sound quality.
Comfy, great value for money, excellent sound quality and very strong. Fantastic pair of headphones. The actual headphones are very strong (i have fallen asleep with them on and they do not bend or crack). The wire is very durable and doesn’t snap, even when i accidentally stepped on them and stood up and the wire got taught it didn’t buckle. Ideal for anyone who has a low budget and wants value for money. The pads that surround the ear are very comfortable and even when i’ve worn them for hours i don’t sweat or get sore ears like i have experienced with other brands. They are comfy, great value for money, excellent sound quality and very strong(just be warned the long wire may get caught and tugged sharply on your neck.

Fantastic quality, but has some drawbacks. . Pros: fantastic sound quality. Neutral: ridiculous length cable. Handy if you want them for indoors activities, awkward for walking around with outside. Cons: very little muffling of outside noise. One side speaker is starting to drop volume erratically after just a few months ownership – seemingly something to do with the cable. If it goes completely i will try the warranty and update my review with how that goes.

Bought these after i wrecked the cable on my previous sennheiser headphones; they’re a step up as far as build and sound quality, but the cable is a bit too long (a first world problem i know) but it’s around 6ft long. Fyi these are not the in-line version, i only use these in the house, so not an issue for me, but bear this in mind if you’re looking to use these on the go.

Sound was great but the cable is flimsy and broke within 2. Sound was great but the cable is flimsy and broke within 2 weeks. Suggested use would be for in the studio where you won’t be transporting these headphones often. There is warranty but how do so claim this?.

Would have like to of seen a volume control option, rather than just a mic. Though these fit beautifully over my ears and beyond comfortable.

A well made, well balanced set of headphones that do the job, without the hefty price tag. . So, i bought these as a gift for my daughter. She really wanted a decent set of headphones and seeing as i’m a huge music buff she came to me to find a decent set. They came packaged brilliantly. The sennheiser brand is quite well known for being producers of high quality kit and they certainly don’t disappoint with these. The impedance is mid range so you get an excellent field and depth of sound for a rather good price. They’re comfortable for myself as an adult, and my smaller daughter found them to fit nice and snug as well. The noise isolation is brilliant, she can often have music or youtube videos playing at a decent volume and no one else can hear it so perfect for those that like to blast it when they’re on the train or the bus. They seem sturdy (they’re still plugging along perfectly after about 6 months. Trust me when i say thats incredible for my daughter.

That’s the way the cookie crumbles. Sound quality is exactly what you’d expect from a sennheiser product. Build quality feels a little cheap in places and could benefit with a wider padding strip at the top and the 2m wire for it strikes me as too thin especially if you compare it to the twin cable on the sennheiser 201 headphones. Overall, nice fit over my ears not too much pressure but enough that you don’t think they’re going to fall off and sounds as you’d expect a sennheiser headphone to.
