theaudioandvideoguy's review"bassy"

Sennheiser HD 457
The Sennheiser HD 457 are really good headphones and they are really stylish at the same time. They come with this metallic type finish and look really futuristic. You can use these just to listen to music in your mp3 player, or if you are feeling brave you can mix in them. But they will give your mix a very “bassy” feel to it. Not to sure if they have to much low end or not, when I listened to Kid Rock in them they sounded great, a lot of bass and thump. I wouldn’t try to mix in them though. For some reason my mixing headphones need to be very flat to my liking in order for me to get a clean mix with them.

The price of these isn’t bad at all, they are very affordable depending on when and where you purchase them. I am curious why they are HD though, to me they really don’t have a high quality sound that really sticks out. The are decent at best and really bassy, not saying they are bad though. I am just really picky when it comes to headphones because there are so many different ones on the market today. But with the price you will spend on these you will get some good phones no doubt. But if you are looking to get good mixing headphones for your music. Look into some higher end sony’s or even yamaha‘s.

But take the Sennheiser HD 457’s with you on a plane and you will be happy. (even though they really don’t cancell out external noise). They still have enough bass so you cant hear whats going on around you. The loudness isn’t real loud, not that I want it to be. But I guess you could call these good headphones in the listening category, but to someone who wants to mix, they wouldn’t do the job for me. If you want to enjoy music from your ipod these will work great!


Ecni's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great for MP3 player"

Sennheiser HD 457
to use a home studio to avoid too much color

he'll warm your ears and shake your head and it is a bit heavy to medium porter.le foam is high in calories

its low and thereby boosted the treble too low
it depends on the use that is actually
listen the TV sound, or a player.
I use it for 1 year
I've worn many hats. I owned another brand of headphone that was much better (but higher price)
value for money is say "normal"

Sennheiser HD 457
- How long have you use it?

For about 5 years

- What is so special that you like most and least?

+ + +: I appreciate its design that allows it to withstand a lot of "abuse" (stays at the bottom of the bag with a foot above example) without flinching.
I also like the return of mid and treble on a headphone at the base is more "HiFi" ...

--- ... For the cons are far too low and that makes the present arrangement of pieces tedious (for my budget (student), even if not made for that, it saves me from buy a headphone more efficient but also more expensive)

NB I had to resolder the speakers in these headphones because the connections brought a lot of his cuts (when I turned my head) in 1h30 and three shots soldering iron, that was it;) .

-How do you price / quality ratio?
With experience, you do again this choice?

Good quality / price ratio: the machine has a few "hours" and apart from the slight problem with the connection, it takes the shock without flinching ...
I do it again this choice, although I look at the Behringer headphones with great interest after having tried a ...

Almost 5 years now!

- What is the specific feature you like best, the least?

the +:
-Sound reproduction overall nickel, tt case the price is really perfect. The AIGS does not dfoncent ears, the bass are not omnipresent (I think), so it's really neutral and Faithful to her.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Other Sennheiser, one of the 70s and another a bit rotten, but I can not remember the name.

- How do you report qualitprix?

absolutely excellent, great quality I use my everyday headset (mop, so in my bag), I'm not careful, specially the bug is still working to the coat! I had botched a first before, but walking on the jack (no pain the guy), so there could not honntement much ... The quality is impeccable for the price.

- With the exprience, you do again this election? ...

Manu le bleu's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sennheiser HD 457
I've had two months.
I have an old HD414 and I thought to find something equivalent.
Plutt low price, but not low trs.
On costs, there is far too low; APRS correction, the sound is slightly less than the HD414 Dfine.
I do not have that choice would do.

BlueChris's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sennheiser HD 457
Used in recent months.
It is lightweight, comfort level is OK, provided the proper position
I was looking for a headset to plug in my guitar amp. no use for the prvu home studio.
Return of good clean sounds, so good on the saturated.
Too bad the cable is not single-stranded.
Report qualitprix good, I did not get any better (yet!)
