Great sound.. but

 

First off, sennheiser is great and it has never failed to prove it's worth when it comes to sound quality. However I bought these for about 50 euro's at the time and not even 2 months later the right side of my headphone started giving me trouble. At first I figured the plug of my mp3 was dirty or that there was some other circumstantial problem. However it turned out that because of the flimsy one sided thin cord. It had broken inside the cable near the plug. Now I removed the rubber exterior and found that it's a molded plug. Which means it's hard to replace. So if you're looking for great sound whilst at home or behind the computer, then these headphones will suit you just fine. If however you travel around a lot, use it on the move then just be very careful with the cable, because it's prone to breaking.

Comfortable, Good bass, Stylish, Great sound, Lightweight

Flimsy construction

Interesting motif, comfortable ear-pads, sturdy build quality

Overly warm sound, muffled treble

Sennheiser's HD418 headphones are sturdy and (arguably) stylish. Reasonably cheap for full-size closed headphones, they'd make a good accompaniment to a commuter's laptop or MP3 player as long as sound quality isn't a huge concern.

just bought this today in JB-hifi (AUS)

 

I will keep running the headphone for the next 48 hours to make my final conclusion on this product (and I hope it will get much better : D )

Relatively warm human voice, strong bass, refined and clear instruments voice (especially drum and piano)

Very Bad Noise isolation, People can hear what you hear, not suitable to use in hot summer, human voice is not very clear but not shallow, dissortion occurs in loud volume
