Sennheiser HD 448


The lightweight design and comfort of these stereo headphones make them suitable for wearing them on the road or on public transit – if you don't mind how you look while wearing big, full-size headphones in public. The sound is balanced and well suited...

Well-balanced sound suitable for all types of musical genres

Can get hot and uncomfortable after extended use

none so far


Consumer review by:



They are very comfortable. I like the forward headband that rests slightly forward of the traditional position. Sealed cups. I can't hear what I don't want to hear and she can't hear me. Great sound reproduction. Balanced, not overly bright or bass...

My 448 headphones sit in the closet


(4+4+0)/3 = 2.67 stars The bass was so lacking, I didn't use the set at all. It now sits in the closet to prove that I've once owned a hyped up Sennheiser headphone set and would never again.

Treble: 4 stars ; Mid: 4 stars

Bass: 0 star

Prettty awesome! Very comfortable.


No instruction manual, but headphones should be pretty self explanatory I guess

Have had for a few weeks now, and I must say they're a pleasure to wear. Cushions go completely over and around your ears so there's no pressure directly on your ears (My ears are small though, but I don't think anyone should have a problem unless...

If you turn your head entirely to the left or to the right too far the cushions might leak a little outside sound to your ears. Otherwise they're fine

My 4th one from Sennheiser


Bought it at $50 which was a must buy. For those who are contemplating on this, go for it. It looks nicer, better cord quality, sound high and crisp and can wear it for hours without any discomfort (other than the occasion sweat building up)

Upgrade this from a HD-428 mainly for it's cord length. The sound is beautiful all around and extremely comfortable to the ear. As mention, the cord is only 4.6 feet as compare to the 428 which is 10 foot long...That's twice of me a bit, so this is...

Bass is always a lack of in Sennheiser products. Quality of the build may bring up risk but should stay sturdy if you keep it safe. The cord end is also a straight plug-in rather than a L twist. This could be a problem as people like me tend to put...

Sennheiser HD 448 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Stereo Headphone


Wish I would have had these when we were shooting. Really wanna kick my sound guy right now.

I wouldn't call myself an audiophile, but I've mixed for live bands, in a medium scale venue that included a number of high profile tribute bands. For the price, these headphones are great. They may not be the equivalent of monitoring speakers, but the...

Bad at blocking outside noise; but once you get some music going or the volume turned up, you tend not to notice it

great service!


Great service of newegg! There is something wrong with the first one. They provide free return! The service made us comfortable! So I recommand Newegg!

The effect is perfect for this price

Great heaphones


Great sound throughout the spectrum. I tried the Klipsch Image ONE's not too long ago and they were absolute trash and I'm a Klipsch fanboy (have a full 7.1 setup with F-3's, C-3's, B-3's, and S-3's with the 12" sub), so I've been on the hunt for a...

None, really. Great sounding cans
