[tab title="What We Think"]
The HD 449s are a pair of light, closed-back headphones and are one of the best-sounding (if not THE best sounding headphones) Sennheiser has released at this price. They sit comfortably over the head thanks to the ergonomically well-balanced, lightweight feel and ‘no-pressure’ clamping force of the headband. They feel very comfortable on the ears without getting to steamy thanks to the soft, leatherette ear cups. The full-size closed-back construction offers mild ambient noise attenuation and listening privacy anywhere you want your tunes.
The sound is immensely detailed and clear, picking up subtle detail while differentiating well across the low-, mid- and high-end. The efficient 32 Ohm impedance means the HD449 does not require an amp for great sound quality when used directly from iPod, iPad, iPhone, MP3 players or computers. However to get the most out of this headphone, a small headphone amplifier can potentially transform the HD449 into a truly jaw-dropping listening experience.
Overall the HD449′s have a very big sound-stage, excellent build quality and we can’t recommend them enough. Buy them!
