Customer Reviews

They are lightweight and durable with good built quality.
Greentea
Could use a little thicker wirer and the pads get a bit warm, but they do a good job of keeping the sound in and blocking outside noise.
techuser
They are much better than lots of headphones I have tried, especially beats.

My main purchase for these was for speech audio, i.e. lectures, youtube, trainings, etc. I also listen to a great deal of audio so I was hoping for a set of headphones which had overall decent sound. I already have a set of HD595's but wanted a set of closed headphones too so I wasn't leaking sound to people near me. The overall build is decent for the money. Could use a little thicker wirer and the pads get a bit warm, but they do a good job of keeping the sound in and blocking outside noise. I broke these in for 4 hours or so before listening.

First thing I noticed is that the bass has much more presence then my HD595's. Any more bass and it would be too much. The highs seem very good and detailed, but the mids seem slightly recessed and not very rich. Could just be a personal preference. Lastly, the sound seems kinda of smaller and more focused, unlike my HD595's which seems to have a more expansive sound while still very well focused.

A lot of review I've read, like to compare other headphones to Bose and Beats. I would say that these are better than the Beat's minus the Beat's Pro. I would say that they are overall better than the Bose, though I would probably take the Bose headphones over any of the other Beat's headphones too.
Overall I would say that the HD449's are a good sounding, quality headphone for a reasonable price. They work perfectly fine with my portable audio devices, etc.

The Sennheiser HD 449 Headphones... Black, are very well put together. These headphones will clearly last some time, as long as they're taken care of correctly.

The sound quality is very pure & clear. I mixed 35 channels in Finale, with different pan settings and db levels, in four different combinations, to put these Sennheiser's to the test. The piece I used goes through the quietest of orchestral moments, to the loudest, boldest possible orchestral moments, with 35 different channels of music blaring through the Sennheiser's. The 449's held their own in the boldest of moments, and produced clear, floating sound in the quietest of passages. I'm very impressed with these headphones.

One of the most important things to have in a pair of headphones is comfort. Especially if you're someone like me, who wears headphones for sessions of 3-6 hours at a time. The Sennheiser HD 449 Headphones are extremely comfortable when you put them on, very lightweight, a good fit, and they don't cause any pain for me at all. I've already had a few 6 hour sessions since I've gotten these headphones, and I've experienced no discomfort.

Overall: Great Value, High Quality, Recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Sennheiser headphones have a reputation for quality, even at moderate prices. The closed back HD 449 headphones, with their distinctive "industrial" stylishness, their snug, comfortable clamping and good sound are the latest example of Sennheiser's penchant for functional design and solid engineering. I wore the HD 449s for around three weeks, breaking them in over 30 hours of listening to all genres of music. It was instructive hearing them open-up with each passing day. When I first put them on and listened to lute music (I prefer starting with quiet music, slowly working my way up the volume ladder) their sound was flat, veiled and slightly cold. After four or five hours, with orchestral music predominating, the HD 449s sounded much richer with a real sense of acoustic warmth across a generous sound stage.

I'm impressed with the HD 449's solid upper range (triangles have a distinctive and delightful crystalline ring), though they never sound too bright, especially when driven at high volume. They are particularly strong in the mid-ranges though they do occasionally exhibit the slightly dark sound that Sennheiser's are renowned (or notorious) for. Bass is good without being of the "one note" variety. Comparing the sound of these to my Sennheiser 650s (which cost around four times as much): their sound isn't quite as elegant or refined but they do share a familial acoustic warmth and musical presence as well as a well-defined spaciousness that will allow your favorite music to breathe. They have a low impedance of only 32 ohms, so you can plug the HD 449s into your iPod without losing volume, bass or musical quality. If you are interested in an entry level pair of headphones that approach audiophile quality, these definitely fill the bill. Good sound, sturdy construction, comfortable to wear, the HD 449s are a solid moderately priced headphone.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First let me say I am a normal person who does not have a lot of expertise with headphones. But since I can't find earbuds comfortable enough to wear long term (Ive tried several), I have switched to big headphones.

My last phones were the Sennheiser HD 598's, a little bigger set than this one. Those actually sound just a tiny bit better than these HD 449's. I listened to several songs, and switched back and forth several times between these and my heavier duty phones. On some songs my heavier duty phones were noticeably clearer, but on some songs I really could not tell the difference. Even though the sound is not quite as good as my old set, I will probably still switch and use these smaller 449's and here's why:

The sound is almost as good as my more expensive headphones. It's well worth that tiny sacrifice. Both sets of headphones are comfortable, but these are smaller, lighter, and fit my small head even better than the older ones. I noticed one reviewer said these fit on the ear, rather than around the ear. For a lot of people that may be true, but they fit around my ears perfectly. But like I said, my head is on the small side. So I for one really appreciate the size of these. Plus, I like to walk around and do stuff while I'm listening, so the light weight is really nice. On my postal scale, these phones weigh 5.7 ounces, my bigger ones weigh 10.2 oz. Quite a difference!

The cord has extenders and adapters that will allow you to use the headphones with just about any equipment. I will be using mine a lot on my kindle, both for music and audio books. There is a carry bag for the headphones, and my kindle fits in it as well! So that'll be great for travel.
