I really loved the sound quality of the headphone. It works well with my Android phone and my laptop. The microphone is able to pick up the sound even when it is hooked on to my pocket and covered by a leather jacket. The wire is little too long and the microphone hangs way down and is difficult to hook it on when you wear a t-shirt.
If you are looking for a headphone with mic which can be used with everything, I would recommend this definitely.

These headphones have very good sound production, however, a couple of things hinder me from giving it a perfect 5.
1. The ear cup paddings are too tough, so it doesn't properly sit on your head, therefore you can hear a big difference in mids and lows when moving your jaw.
2. It's not as loud as I would have liked. They sound very loud when you take them off and hang them on your neck if someone was talking to you, but as soon as you put them back and crank the volume all the way up, you don't get the amount of volume you crave.
Apart from those two things, it's more than great. Sound is awesome even in high volume, no cracking or distortion. Bass is great, not too little or too much (depends on your jaw size and placement :D ). The build quality feels very good as well, it's light on your head so you won't get tired of having this on you, the microphone is also very handy but at an awkward distance from the headset in my opinion.
I've found that to get the best out of it, lightly push the ear cups onto your head with your finger's weight to get all the bass you want and minimize sound leaks, or just yawn and keep your jaws open :D

Style Name: In-line Remote and Mic
There are only 2 difference between the HD429S and HD429 headphones and that's a "kill cable" in case you catch it on something, (very helpful), and a control button that works with all popular phones including Windows Phone, Android, and iPhone/iPod.

Where this fails is that the control button lacks any volume control, so if I'm out and about and want to listen to some Bon Jovi, I can press the button and say "play songs by Bon Jovi", but I can't change the volume to rock out to Livin' On A Prayer without fumbling in my pocket to feel for the volume buttons on my iPod 3.

The headphones and mic also work on most modern gaming consoles with a mic-input including the Nintendo Wii-U, Nintendo 3DS (XL), Nintendo DSi (XL), New 3DS (XL), Xbox One, (eiyh adapter and), PS Vita, so you not only get excellent sound from the game but also a microphone to yap with your friends too, it will also work on PC's if they have the necessary ports and firmware, though this is usually only reserved for more high-end laptops; I've found they improve my game when playing Resistance: Burning Skies or make the roars sound so loud on Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate.

The sound though is good, and the padding is designed so that they can be used outside even in the rain.

As for more detail about the sound, it's stable for most genres of music and video, and the panning on them is very quick and balanced, the bass is powerful without overpowering the rest of what you're listening to.

The mic is also excellent quality and picks up the voice very clearly.

Style Name: Headphones Verified Purchase
I'd spent some time researching and prodding around various headphones (this was my first purchase of such an item), with couple key requirements - must drown out noisy neighbours thumping about, door slamming and kids shouting, must have reasonable length cable, and must be at least reasonable quality / sensibly thought of design.

I'm very pleased with them (i've waited a few months before writing a review so I could properly settle into them and the experience than rush out an uninformed one as some people do on the day of receiving the items).

The sound quality exceeds the tv nicely, and as you'd perhaps expect, adds substantially to the gaming experience - as just one example - to track the sources of sounds in the game whether friend, foe, or 'other' very precisely! I'm not the type to pretentiously describe the crispness of the sound to the nth degree, but realistically, for most people this would seem perfectly fine - your own hearing is probably more of a limiting factor.

The cable is the right length to lounge away from the tv, without tripping or tugging the plug out. I would be inclined to agree with others that the cable diameter would be better, say PS controller cable thick, compared to Ipod earphones thin, as you may have the paranoia of this being a vulnerable weak point if you get overexcited or something and put some strain on the lead, depending on what sort of antics you're getting upto I guess?

The padding is good, the over the ears design comfortable for hours of use at a time if needed as these are pretty light too.

You can pay more and probably get a little more (so probably not at a favourable price / benefit ratio), but I personally don't see the need to. You can pay less and get a little less, but I'd be wary of shorter cables, comfort and the lower sound quality compromise risks. These seem the Goldilocks of headphones for me - ah, just right.
