Sennheiser HD 449


The Sennheiser HD 449 stereo headphones are comfortable and great sounding. Although there is no noise cancelling beyond the closed earpad design covering your ears, their lightweight design makes them comfortable to use for extended listening...

These headphones are great for portable systems because they are extremely lightweight and comfortable

The cable is not detachable and the headset does not fold for storage

Great sound and lightweight design make the Sennheiser HD 449 one of the most comfortable headsets available.

Sennheiser HD449 Review


Sennheiser enjoys a good reputation in the headphone market and their HD800 and HD650 headphones are known to be some of the best ones around. Of course, we're talking of really high prices here - the HD800, for example sells for $1499 (roughly...

There is no shortage of headphones in the market today and it’s hard to find a good performing one at an affordable price. The HD449 are actually a very decent set of headphones. Sure, they aren’t built with the best quality and most exotic materials,...

Sennheiser HD 449


Sennheiser is known for delivering exceptional audio quality across the price points, from superb high-end to surprisingly quality low-end. While many sound companies seek to value-add to music by ramping up the bass or tailoring the designs to certain...

Very clear sound from bass to treble with little to no distorting; Extension cable and quarter inch adapter for Hi-Fi; Light, comfortable build

Volume and depth can be lacking; Bass might not cut it for certain music genres

Great Buy


For the money great buy compaired to headphones 3 to 4 times as much. Fit very well, light and do not feel like they are clamped on. When used with an amp really nocks them up a level

No replacable ear pads, seem a little flimsy

Sennheiser HD 449


The sound quality is great. The included extension cord, the extra bag, all of this is nice

Was looking for something that held sound-in well for music at work, these didn't work for that.. I'm sure there are others out there, I just chose the wrong model

Replacement Headphones for HD448


I replaced my HD 448 headphones after I ran over the cord with a vacuum cleaner and ripped the cord apart. These are comparable to the 448\'s, but seem to need a bit more power to run cleanly. I can wear them for hours and not feel fatigued at all. I...

Excellent product


I consider myself an audiophile with about $15K of 2 channel audio. I bought these for my daughter for her Ipod and home stereo. I listened to several pair of headphones including the dreadful beats. I was pleasantly surprised at the level of detail...

Sennheiser HD 449 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Headphone


I can't complain about the sound, but I can complain about the quality. I've been a LONG time customer of Sennheiser for two reasons. Consistent audio quality and consistent overall quality and aesthetics. While the headphones have the classic sleek,...

Overall the audio is good. The bass is adequate

I agree with "jh". The headphones do give off a cheap feeling. They are slightly flimsy and I feel like they're going to snap every time I take them off ; The actual ear muffs are indeed a bit small, as I have to literally fold my ears to cover them...

Expensive? Not really. Ive seen Dr. Dre beats a lot recently and these are easily in the same league as those overpriced earmuffs.

Wow...Matched against HD238 and HD419 these headphones lap the competition. Shocking treble, crystal clear. Round bottomless bass at any volume. The leatherette cups work twice as well at keeping sound in and out (compared to fabric HD419). Effortless...

It might be that these headphones would be SLIGHTLY less than adequate for the very dedicated dubstep or dance crowd. Not certain
