4 out of 5 eggsSize does matter

Comments: I bought the HD457 some months ago, the cable broke so I bought these instead.

I liked the HD457 Better, they don´t "squash" your ears like the HD 497. Though you get used to it, after 2 hours your ears begin to hurt.

Must be because the 497 cover more the edge of the ear, compared to the 457 that don´t cover. What I mean is, the 457 have a smooth surface

5 out of 5 eggsSounds great! Best set of headphones ever!

Comments: I'm not really an audiophile, but I got sick and tired of an old set of Sony headphones that I used. Got these, and they sound INFINITELY better! Best sound I've heard in a long time... even better than my external speakers (3 piece w/ sub). The bass is strong, highs and mids are clear and crisp. The extra long cable works out well.

I would only use these for in the house listening, but not outside during any kind of activity (like running)... much too big for that. But they work out great otherwise. Highly recommend them!

5 out of 5 eggsGood sound but uncomfortable

Comments: Got these today and have been using them all day. As i expected from Sennheiser the sound quality is really good, but i gotta say they arent very comfortable. From the pics i thought they would be larger, but they are too small and rather than going all around my ears, they just kinda sit on top of em. Right now ive been using them all day and my ears hurt :(

Comments: I don't have experience with other high quality headphones so I can't make any comparisons, but I am very pleased with these. Games and music sound awesome, I hear stuff in songs that I've never heard with my 5.1 speakers!

5 out of 5 eggsFaithful, durable, very well engineered

Comments: I have owned this headphone two years. A little more costly than some others perhaps, the headphone is worth every dollar in my view. The sound fidelity is without blemish. The lightweight construction is surprisingly durable. Designed not to block out the voices of others in the room, the headphone actually succeeds at this; in fact I can even hear you walking up behind me while I wear it. As with any high-quality headphone, with this one no undesirable resonances are felt or heard. In a way best of all, the headphone cable is made of some exotic, extremely durable stuff, so despite accidentally having stepped on, rolled over and pinched the cable several times, I am absurdly pleased to report that the electrical audio connection remains perfect. Outstanding quality. Fair price. I recommend this headphone.

Comments: These headphones are absolutely amazing. It provides superb sound for both music and gaming (well also considering you have a decent to good sound card).

Comments: Great headphones for the Price!!!!! As always, great job newegg, got my items one day before ETA, and at a great price!

They put a little pressure on my head compared to my Sennheiser HD-590 headphones, but i can live with it, and i have a big head. Also, because they do not rest on the ear, and are open ear headphones, i do not get that wet "swamp effect". Nice long cord!

My main use is with my laptop with a Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS PCMCIA card, and they sound amazing!

Comments: I've had these headphones for about a week now, and they are running beautifully. No problems with the cord as of yet, but that might change as they get more use. I'm using them about 3 hours a day, so they are getting heavy usage. The bass/mid balance on them is just amazing. My only two complaints are there is no volume control on the cord. Normally, I dont mind, but when you have a 9 ft cord, its nice not to have to keep going back to the source to change volume. The second complaint is that the highs seem to be unbalanced as compared to the mids/lows..they seems slightly weak. For $50ish, they are a great buy.

2 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I had these headphones for about 6 months, although I didn't get them from NewEgg. They worked well for a while, but then I noticed that their quality (at least hearing walking in cs, cod, and such) was getting worse and worse. Finally, the left speaker completely died and now I am left with one speaker.

Comments: Great headphones, I've had them about 2 weaks now and it is nice to finally have a good pair of headphones to play games and listen to music. I have read some reviews that they are a bit tight but they fit me pretty well, I would consider myself to have an average sized head. If your a giant wrestler or pro football player you might have to look somewhere else but for the average joe I think they fit pretty good. I can use them for hours at a time without taking them off (accept to let my head breath for a sec of course). Best headphones you can buy in this price range and I would recommend them to all of my friends and family.
