Sennheiser HD 229

 

Sennheiser throws off the shackles of its colour swabs to bring us its new loud, colourful and proud version of the classic HD 228.

Detailed sound ; Comfortable

Don't really supply advertised "deep bass kick ; A bit expensive ; Colourful redesign lazy

At a glance it may look as though the cable is removable, but it's firmly stuck into the plastic ear cups. However, it does run down just the one side - a bonus - and ends in a chunky (possibly even too chunky) straight 3.5mm jack.
