Although I agree with other reviewers that leakage happens with these headphones I think some of you must be listening at really high volumes. I think the sound spread is good and the balance of various instruments is excellent. They handle all genre of music with gentility and feeling and are comfotable to wear and don't push my glasses against my head. I wouldn't say they were phones for heavy rock. Closed headphones are probably better if in company but if you're on your own and want to lose yourself in music these will do the job

Comfort-
These headphones are a pleasure to wear, although the only downside is that they do tend to exert a bit too much pressure on the ear, but then this makes sure that you can hear it properly so not a bad thing.
--Build--
I think that these headphones seem to be built really well, they feel a bit plasticky but overall i dont think the build is bad at all.
--Sound quality--
In the upper range of tones these headphones are pretty good, they could possibly do with slightly more clarity that you find on vastly more expensive headphones but really im just being picky.
Where these headphones really shine is the bass. Alot of headphones these days seem to work on the principle of more thump = better headphones, but that isnt the case at all and on this set sennheiser have got it absolutely spot on. They are not lacking bass at all but instead of a massive muffled thump, the bass is very smooth rich and deep ( for example club music sounds great without it feeling as though you are being repeadedly punched in the side of your head)
When i listen to songs with these 'phones i hear things i didnt even know were there and extra little bits of information that most headphones loose due to unsponsiveness or too much thump in the bass. It also helps alot if you play decent quality audio into them, for example 320k mp3, WAV, or my personal favourite, apple lossless.

I own, and have owned hundreds of pairs of headphones, from airplane freebies to professional sets of around £150, and these are the best. I can't believe the difference they make when you have been listening to your music with other headphones and then you plug these in. The trebles are tingly clear, the mid-range has lots of definition, and the bass is smooth and rich. I also find you get a lot more atmosphere using cans like these compared to ear buds, maybe because the sound is generated a few inches further away than shoved right down your ear canal. Yes, they can squash your ears after prolonged listening, but I find ear buds just as uncomfortble after a while.

The only problem is that other people will hear your music, or at least the trebles, due to the open-cup design, but I am convinced that this is why the sound is so 3D-like.

By Nick VINE VOICE on 11 Mar. 2007
Received these beauties 2 days ago, couldn't be more pleased with them. They are great sound quality, which means that you can hear some crackles on some lower quality mp3s, something that I wouldn't have heard on my ear buds; but don't let this put you off, its only the result of my poor quality music. The wire is very long, but it has a little wind up thingy so its all good.

They are very loud, in terms of output outwards of the ear. Its is very easy for others to hear your music, but that doesn't really bother me.

People have described them as 'ghetto' and 'old school' so yeah. I don't know what you think of that, but I think it's awesome! They look great around your neck too!

When I first bought these headphones, they were very comfortable and even kept my head and ears warm. Sound quality was decent although the sound leaks out.

After a period of time though, certain audio levels would cause the headphones to crackle - this was extremely irritating. Eventually not long outside warranty, one ear-piece stopped working. I thought this was just some random wear and so I bought the exact same model being happy with the comfort level.

This next pair did the exact same thing and just outside warranty but it was the opposite ear-piece that failed.

This experience has put me off the Sennheiser brand but it's so hard to find affordable, comfortable headphones with good quality audio that I may end up buying Sennheiser again. It certainly won't be any of this type though.

I have purchased ten different headphones since july , I like the Philips 9550s but they are fragile which makes them less easily carried about, but the Sennheiser 415s are such a great pleasure, They are indeed heavy bass phones, but I have an equalizer so I adjusted them downward. The other headsets I bought here are the Sony V300s, Behringer Hpx2000, Sanberg USB, Sennheiser 218s and the 415s are far above all of them all,and they aren't even the most expensive. Note: the philips 9550s are excellent sounding sets, but aren't made for lots of abuse. When you add in the HP set I had, plus all the odd sets I have had over the years, you can't miss with the 415s
