These budget, bass-driven headphones are a good fit for your laptop or MP3 player

 

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.

Interesting motif, comfortable ear-pads, sturdy build quality

Overly warm sound, muffled treble

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
