Sennheiser HD 408 Open Headphones for Bass-Driven &hellip by Sennheiser
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I own a bulky pair of Sony V700's - you know the big silver DJ ones.

I wanted a smaller, alternative pair; something I coud use on the move, without fear of being mugged or simply attacked for having good taste in headphones.

Having recently caught many people's attention on the live music TV show, From The Basement, Andrew Bird's captivating performance whetted the appetite for his fifth solo studio album, Noble Beast. The intimate nature of the performance showcased Bird's greatest assets: a closed-eyes intensity, complex multi-instrument sonic landscaping and intoxicating lyricism. Bird's signature one-man-band innovation (he executes his songs solo with the help of loop pedals) coupled with his eerie whistling forays made for an engaging experience. The slight concern with Noble Beast is whether or not it can be as affecting as the live performance and whether or not its fourteen tracks are too ambitious or… Read more
