Sennheiser HD 428 Over the Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

While Sennheiser has a long and well-earned pedigree, which the HD 428 over the ear headphones are now part of. However, given the performance and price point, the HD 428 will be facing some stiff competition.

The HD 428 is a stylish but understated headphone that features well-sourced plastics and soft touch rubber ; The HD 428 is comfortable to wear for long periods of time ; The HD 428's sound is natural though it skews to the leaner side of neutral,...

The HD 428 doesn't rest securely around all ears meaning its sound isolation capabilities are not ideal, which may or may not be a deal breaker ; At the extremes or at extreme volumes the HD 428's sonic performance does become a bit one dimensional and...

It's hard to argue with a $100 over-the-ear headphone with a Sennheiser pedigree - for which the HD 428 has both. However I'm not sure the HD 428 gets my blanket endorsement for while I liked many aspects of its performance, it does face some stiff...

Sennheiser HD 428 Headphones

 

Great headphones that are built for the studio, now in your home

These headphones provide great sound quality throughout all the ranges of sound. The crosshair design provides longetivity. The closed-back design cancels out background noise

The lead cable on this pair of headphones is considered to be a bit too long for home use

This is a Sennheiser studio headphone set that provides the awesome quality of sound that professional sound recording artists are always looking for. Thanks to its unique cross-hair design, the durability of the headphone set is ensured to a great...

Sennheiser HD-428 Headphones

 

If you have ever searched for a new set of headphones and sought recommendations, you have no doubt heard of Sennheiser and been recommended a set of their headphones. Sennheiser is a well recognized name in the audio industry and has been making...

Tight bass, balanced mids and vocals, transparent soundstage, very comfortable, scratch resistant build and reasonable $80 price tag

Short cable limits their versatility, not travel friendly

After dozens of hours of listening, though, I think anyone who purchases them will be pleased by the sound quality that a good pair of headphones such as the HD 428 can provide.

Sennheiser HD 428 PC headphones

 

These budget PC headphones have a nice design and produce decent sound

Comfortable, cheap, stylish design, good bass response

Mediocre sound quality, flimsy build quality

Sennheiser’s budget HD 428 PC headphones fill an important market niche – they’re cheap and don’t sound too bad. These headphones also have a nice design.

Excellent value over-ear headphones

 

For a value set of over ear's to have at the office, these are a great choice. If you want ultra performance for focused listening, these models lack just a pinch but are still great for all but the most discerning of trained ears. Trouncing anything...

Price, low-key looks, size of ear cups, weight, padding, minimal ear fatigue, over-all sound. Great low end, and detail for the money ; For the money, I really feel these are very hard to beat for the sonic performance for a closed back, over ear set...

Small wire, plastic feels a little cheapish, and the left ear padding has worn down a little after daily use at the office 5 days a week for a couple years
