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

Great little headphones for working out

 

I got these on sale and for the money they are a good quality set of headphones.

Light weight and very comfortable on the ears. Bright coloring makes them easy, not to lose. Good sound quality for almost any taste in music. The true fit blocks out much of the ambient noise, even though they have no noise cancelling technology

I have found nothing to complain about so far

Sennheiser HD229 On-Ear Headphones - Black and Red

 

They are very comfortable to wear ,do not get on with in the ear head phones so very happy to have on the ear and not over the ear.

Settling in nicely

 

Smaller than you'd expect, these lads, but that's no crime. Out of the box, they seemed very short of response at the subterranean bass end (e.g. synth) -- though fine for bass guitars and orchestral music. However, the plastic over the earpads softens...
