Sennheiser CXC 700 3.5mm Connector Canal Earphone with NoiseGuard (Digital)

Comfortable, durable and powerful, these headphones provide great stereo sound from your portable audio equipment. Expect solid bass response and great noise suppression, along with uninhibited movement and good looks.

The Sennheiser HD 429 melds cutting edge sound with ultra-modern design. The closed-back design blocks ambient noise for use on-the-go, or in front of the latest movie download. The outer cup is covered in a textured grid which adds stability while showcasing the logo that's synonymous with true sound. The single-sided cable stays tangle-free, making it easy to use and store - if you can find a reason to take them off.


The HD 429 delivers powerful bass-response without the need for batteries or separate amplifier circuits while maintaining clarity. The low-impedance transducer system makes it ideal for use with portable media devices (tablets, MP3 players, smartphones, and netbooks). Moreover, the included 1/8in. (3.5mm) to 1/4in. (6.3mm) adapter allows the HD 429 to be plugged into your home audio receiver or other stereo equipment.

The HD 429 has closed cups that go around the ear damping the background noise, keeping your listening private. And the soft leatherette cushions are replaceable and plush for long-term listening comfort.

The single-sided cable reduces tangles.

5 out of 5 eggsSennheiser HD419 Over-Ear Headphones - Black

Pros: Fantastic quality, comfortable, anyone who says these are ANYTHING less than great headphones is being WAY over picky, they have very good Lows, decent Highs, and they can be worn for extended periods with no discomfort. Ears WILL get warm.I got them for $19.00 on sale, and added 3 year warranty for $7.00, for ,$26 bucks how can u go wrong?

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

3 out of 5 eggsOK for the price

Pros: -inexpensive on sale
-good overall sounds
-headband is comfortable
-fits my rather large head comfortably
-overall decent build quality for the price

Cons: -cable feels cheap. I anticipate replacing this soon.

Other Thoughts: This product appears to not be available on newegg anymore, I'm adding this just as a reference to anyone else shopping for this item.

these are all stylistic comments, not necesarily a strong pro or con, but more opinionated.

1. the cups are just way to small for me and I have small ears. they barely surround my ears.
2. the cable is just awful in my opinion. it's too short for me and unbelievably thin. I will likely replace this before it breaks. Is it that hard to throw in an extension or use sturdy wires?
3. they sounds hollow to me. low Bass is good and punchy but I think there's a lack of mid which makes the sound feel hollow.

5 out of 5 eggsNothing fancy, solid performance.

Pros: These headphones aren't anything hi-tech. I am not partial to noise-cancelling, bass boosters, bluetooth, on-ear mute feature or of any that mumbo jumbo. These headphones plug in and play really great music. Simple as that.

The over-the-ear muffs are very comfortable. I can where them for hours. I can listen to A Winged Victory for the Sullen and really get the full effect of the low bassy cello strings. I can listen to Jessy Lanza and hear her high screamy vocals without any overhead or screech.

I cannot speak to the longevity of the phones. For $40 and buying from a German company, I bet these phones will last a very long time. The last over-the-ear headphones I owned were a $30 pair of Aiwas. They lasted me a long time and ended up crapping out because the mute button get all stuck and loose.

I keep the headphones in the plastic skeleton to preserve them. You should too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: get these headphones if you aren't a uptight sound biologist.

4 out of 5 eggsI'm happy with it!

Pros: Good sound quality and clarity.
Great to wear for long periods of time.
Sound Isolation is good (More in the Discussion)

Cons: Thin and short wiring.
Bass may rattle (More in the Discussion)

Other Thoughts: I've been wanting a Sennheiser for a long time after knowing how reputable their headphones are and I finally found my chance with these. It was affordable for me so much so that I got one for me AND my brother who sorely needed it. The poor guy has been using old clip-on headphones that came free with his Nintendo DS... which was over 7 years ago!

The HD419s would have to be the best bang for your buck if you want to listen to your music or play video games within a remedial setting or studio. I enjoy putting these on over listening through Logitech 2.1 Speakers. I know that's not saying much for you audiophiles out there but, what can I say? I'm on a budget.

On the topic of Sound Isolation:
I've dedicated these headphones for my little closet studio only and so it blocks most noise that pervades the house, like calls to dinner or yells to take out the trash.
DISCLAIMER: I would not take these cans outside.

On the Topic of Short and Thin Wiring:
Yeah, like everyone else is saying, the wire is thin, short and feels cheap. I'm nervous about moving my head around for in the event I yank it the wrong way.
As with the previous disclaimer: Do not take these outside.

On the Topic of Bass Rattle:
I did a quick audio-check after a month of use and the only problem I seem to have is that, at full volume, the bass rattles. I read somewhere that a good rule of thumb is to stay about 70% of maximum volume, which, at that region, the rattling is near to non-existent. So, keep the dB down and its good.

I do find this pair of headphones wanting on the volume side. I really good song kicks on, I max the volume and "I still don't feel the music." Maybe that's what an amp is for, I don't know, but this is nothing to prevent anyone else from buying pair. I'd highly recommend it for someone on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: As previously stated, plus one more... Works great as earmuff replacements too. (keeps them warm when it's cool out, but not hot when it's warm out)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: 7 months (almost) and no damage to the cord... No obvious physical issues, no change in audio performance.

If you need quality on the cheap, this is the product to get.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent budget headphone

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Sound is on par with cost.

Other Thoughts: This is a really comfortable headset for long periods of use. I can game for a few hours and not even notice them. Not as good as my $200 set. But nice for a second machine.

3 out of 5 eggsLove Hate Relationship

Pros: Excellent sound for the price. loves it with my MP3 player and PC.

Cons: I have never seen a cheaper or just poorly crafted cords ever. Heck My old Koss cords from the 70's still are intact but sennsi's one little tug and goodbye I will never recommend them again that's for sure

Other Thoughts: I was a senns head for years until I had two pair die the same way, I've made my last recommendations
