Sennheiser HD 465


Sennheiser has sent another of its numerous creations to us, and this time it's a little more high-end than the earlier headphones. It's the HD 465; which I gladly took up for review, though it's not exactly a new piece. Not too many reviews of the...

There are folks who will like this kind of sound response, and it works better for watching movies and playing games. It costs Rs 3990, so that's not exactly cheap, though the build quality and design are very nice for this product. So if you are not...

Good deal, great quality.


Thses are ment for listening to music and sound, not for making it. If you want studio quality, you have to pay studio price; it's that simple. These are not the best headphones in the world but they are great for music, games, and movies. To the guy...

The HD465s are very nice, I've never heard my games and music so clear. Using these with and X-FI is awesome. They have a deep base and crisp trebble. I can now hear in acurate 3D, in online shooters. Plus they are very soft and comforrotable

Great headphones for Gaming


I've been using Sennheiser products for years. I first found out about them when I was given a CD player with a pair of headphones from my sister and her husband. Luckily they didn't realize that they gave me a really nice and expensive pair of...

1. Great design, looks good ; 2. Very comfortable. Easily adjustable and the one cord coming in is nice. Can wear for hours ; 3. Great price, newegg can't be beat ; 4. Sound quality is great. Games like Unreal Tournament, World of Warcraft and my music...

Not sure if its just my headphones or if it's a design thing but two things are quirky ; 1. The head cushion around the inner top of the headphones pulls off of the hard plastic arc, making a sticky peeling noise. Pretty sure it's just my unit, will...

Good but not good enough


I spent that little bit more because I wanted the comfort I have had in the past with my other headsets, but I have found the headset really uncomfortable after a few hours due to the ear pads being flat and not indented for your ears? Brilliant...

Bass clarity


Excellent detail, clarity and bass heavy for the boom-heads. The all complete headphone in this price range with excellent adaptability with both micro and standard jacks. Will compete well with headphones double the price.
