Package Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
If you are in the market for headphones at this price point, you are likely looking at both of these models. I ordered both, tried them out side-by-side, and returned one. I kept the Sennheisers.

Let me start by saying that I am NOT an audiophile. I was looking for headphones to use with my iphone, that I could use at work at a reasonable volume without disturbing, or being disturbed by, my neighbors with sound leakage. My previous headphones were the inner-ear style, and I found those to be extremely uncomfortable.

Second, I'll say that both the Sennheisers and the Shures are excellent, from a layman's perspective, and that you really can't go wrong with either. Again, a true audiophile would probably tell you something different, and be able to explain the technical side of why one is clearly superior, but I am not that guy.

So, why did I prefer the Sennheisers? The 2 main reasons are:

1. Better sound isolation. Not just a little bit, but a lot. With the Shure 440s, my wife was able to sing along with the song I was listening to at 50% volume from 12 feet away. Compare that to the Sennheiser HD 429's, and I had to get within arms length before she could even hear a noise, let alone be able to tell what the song was and sing along. Further, I had her turn up the volume of the television until I could hear it through the headphones. She got up to 30 with Sennheisers, compared to only 14 before sound started leaking through on the Shures.

2. Better comfort. This is obviously a personal preference, and will depend a lot on your head size and shape, but for me, the Shures felt like they were going to fall off every time I moved my head. The Sennheisers felt tighter, but not in an uncomfortable way. Just the opposite, actually.

Hello mr13lucky- Thank you for your comments and your review. We sincerely appreciate your business.
Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A few months ago my son purchased a pair of Sennheiser headphones (Sennheiser HD201 Lightweight Over-Ear Binaural Headphones) to replace those that the dog had chewed. Since I have been somewhat skeptical of the true value of higher priced headphones, I thought it would be interesting to compare and contrast these headphones with those.

Sound Quality:

HD 201 - Sound quality is decent, without distortion, but the bass quality is not very strong.
HD 429 - Sound is excellent and there is a notable improvement in bass over the lower priced headphones.

Noise blocking:

HD 201 - These headphones slightly muffle external noise but in no way block it.
HD 429 - Another huge improvement over the lower priced headphones. These puppies really block out external noise. (I am the primary source of external noise to be blocked naturally.)

Comfort:

HD 201 - The padding and shape of the headphones is both attractive and functional and these headphones are slightly lighter than the other headphones.
HD 429 - Again, good padding and nice shaping. These are heavier but still light enough to wear all day.

Overall, is it worth paying more than double the price for the 429 headphones versus the 201's? If you are a music lover, especially one who likes a genre with heavier bass tones, and you plan to keep these for a couple of years - yes. That said, if you live in a household where headphones are on the pooches list of edible items, probably not.

Highly recommended for most music lovers.

I needed a new pair of 'cheapo' headphones for commuting, etc, and replaced my broken HD 515s with the HD 429. First off, I'm no audiophile, though I do love my at-home pair of Sennheiser HD 598s. Sennheiser has been good to me in always having excellent headphones, ever since I bought my first pair some twenty years ago, and I've bought one pair after another ever since.

For the most part, the HD 429 delivers what you expect from a low budget pair of headphones (though I wouldn't read too much into the promotional blurb's comment about bass; you'll still need an amp of some kind). I won't go into detail, as there are several great reviews already that do. All I'll say further about the sound is that I think the headphones could have been greatly improved if the headband had a teensy bit more stiffness to them.

However, what compelled me to write a review, is to highlight the cord Sennheiser decided to use with these headphones. It's very thin, and basically the same type of cord you get with earbuds made for MP3 players. I've noticed that Sennheiser says they did this to cut the weight on the headphone, but in my opinion, I would rather have had the increased weight (I'm not wearing over-the-ear headphones because I'm looking for the lightest thing possible), that comes with a higher quality cord that doesn't scare the bejesus out of me every time I-without thinking-grab/pull this pair of headphones by the cord (out of my bag, etc).

I generally do not return items, so I continue to use these headphones. I've heard that there is a one year warranty on the cord, but that's really not the point. If the cord does break, while the cord may be replaced for free, you're still out of your pair of headphones while you wait for a replacement.
