After purchasing these headphones I cannot stress enough how pleased I was with the sound quality. After you leave them for an approximate 50 hour "burn-in" period they sound heavenly. I cannot speak for everyone but personally I do not think that they require an amplifier. I do not listen to my iPod loudly and so don't feel that these headphones are lacking at all although others may feel differently. One thing that I failed to mention in my video was the noise isolation - these headphones block some noise but not everything. If someone is speaking you will most likely be able to make out what they are saying whilst wearing these headphones.

The padding around the cups is incredibly comfortable and feel like cushions surrounding your ears! The surround of the headphones feels a bit tacky but they do not feel like they are going to break. Also, they twist to a certain extent meaning that you can wear them over one ear if you wish.

My only criticism would be that they look slightly bulky. These headphones were designed to sound good and not to look good. Overall though, they are a great sounding pair of headphones and the best I have come across in the mid-range market.

Right this is the first review of a product I have ever done but though that these headphones deserved it. I'm not an audiophile by any means but I do appreciate sound quality more than the average person. I already own a pair of Westone UM-1 in ear monitors but I wanted a set of over ear headphones as I wanted to experience the higher levels of bass and much larger soundstage that they tend to offer over in ear headphones. I was not sure what to expect from these headphones as the many reviews I had read prior to purchasing these, seemed to all agree that they are a little underwhelming before they undergo the initial (50 or so hours) of the Burn In process. There is a lot of talk about them being very quiet, with iPod's struggling to drive/power them to their full potential so I thought I'd share my views and clear a few things up. Before I expand I'll point out that I have only had these two days so far and they've had around 15 or so hours of burn in. I've used them with my iPod 2nd Gen (both with and without a FiiO E5 headphone amplifier), and my laptop (through an external soundcard). My music taste is wide, but mostly modern rock and pop. All my music is at 320kbps, but I have also tried these with some FLAC files too.

1. Comfort - The first thing I noticed was just quite how comfortable these headphones are. My house mate got a set of Sennheiser HD 205's two days before me and the first thing I noticed was how tight they were (I have quite a small head too). These however do not "clamp" the head with much force at all, yet still have enough 'grab' to prevent them falling off. Although I wouldn't want to use them while exercising (then again who buys these kind of headphones for running with??).

this is my second pair of sennheiser closed back headphones, my son has conveniently borrowed the others for his i-pod and i haven't seen them since so i went a little upmarket and bought this pair i use them for my i phone and when i use my laptop, sound range is great quite bassy cos i listen to a lot of jazz-funk music, crystal clear sound they also keep out a lot of outside noise good for when your traveling plane or tube, have used these on both and keeps your sounds in as well without you disturbing any one else. these have been knocked down to £52 from £100 and belive me they are well worth the money without breaking the bank, you get a bag to keep them in and an extension wire if you want to hook up the headphones to your tv or hi-fi and they are across the other side of the room. all in all a great pair of headphones to suit anyone and their tastes in music, oh yes and they have only one wire coming out of the side instead of two which is good.

A word about buying headphones.
I recently ordered, (from Amazon, of course) a set of Sennheiser 215 headphones which I had chosen from the ones available. My first impression was that these were really good but i soon realised that the swivel ear piece was a nuisance and i would never have need to use it, much easier to remove headset if someone wanted my attention.
Because Amazon are so understanding and helpful I was able to return the 215s and replace them with the HD448 ones.
Although these are lower priced they are optimised for use MP3 players and the difference was, to my hearing definitely much clearer as was the comfort when in use. I am totally satisfied and would not consider changing these for anything else.
I recommend the HD 448 to anyone who just wants to hear a full range of notes without any gimmicks.
Finally I must add that these were bought to replace a £36 pair of in-ear pods which made my ears ache and the difference in the sound quality was amazing.
If I could change my four star rating it would be very close to five stars.

I've previously owned a set of Sennheiser headphones but had to leave them due to a breaking of my own fault. As such I bought some Sony DJ Headphones but the design made them very uncomfortable after an hour of wearing. Not so with these headphones! After getting so fed up with the poorly fitting headphones I bought these and the sound quality is just the same if not slightly better.

The general look of them is stylish and the features are nicely subtle. They're comfortable to wear and most importantly they sound good! The sound blocking feature that they have is average/good but it's not something I've particularly noticed so perhaps I'm just being overly fussy.

While they're on a bit of the pricey side, buying a set of headphones that look good, sound good and feel good is hard to come buy and personally, I think this is worth a purchase!
