    I originally got these headphones to edit videos with. After hearing what they are capable of, I have been constantly using them to listen to music. They have great bass. They don't hurt your ears after an extended amount of time wearing them. I wore them for about 5 hours while editing a video. After I took them off, my ears didn't hurt. They're very comfortable. For the price, they are very much worth it!

    All in all these headphones sound pretty good, but the cable is super thin and these things broke after only a few uses. To be fair, they were being used in a recording studio setting so only the gods know what happens to them when in the hands of careless client. I've never had a pair of headphones break so quickly though. I opened them up and everything seemed to be in order wiring wise so I can only deduce that a driver went. Getting to the driver is impossible though because it's sealed in an enclosure with some sort of hot glue or something. I'm a huge fan of the hd 280s so I would suggest saving your coin for a pair of those which are much easier to fix if a driver goes.

        Comments about Sennheiser HD 429 Around-Ear Stereo Headphones:

        I was in need of some around the ear stereo headphones for use as part of my MAC/Final Cut Pro X editing system. After doing an extensive product comparison and not wanting to take out a second mortgage, I ultimately chose Sennheiser's Model HD 429. For starters, they are great sounding. Crisp highs and solid lows. They're light in weight and very comfortable. Unless you're technical demands are high end, I highly recommend these headphones....especially for the price. The only negative comment?(and it's a minor one!!!!)I would have preferred a thicker, coiled cable.

        - at home headphone
        - good looking headphones yet not flashy
        - it is comfortable and has great sound
        - the 3.5mm jack is flimsy (this is my second time buying these headphones, AFTER 3 years the 3.5mm jack tore from the wires.)
        - this time i am only going to keep it at home.

                        Can't say much about them. They do the job and produce wonderful sound. Plus they are sturdy. I use them to listen while recording in the field and also when I edit. They don't feel like they are going to fall apart like a lot of the modestly priced headphones do. Full coverage is nice too and they are very comfortable.

                          I use the headphones for my amplifier while playing my guitar. What's great is that they fit around my head just right and when I strum hard, I can't hear it what-so-ever because the nice padding muffles it out along with the great sound.

                          I bought this set of headphones for both personal and business purposes.
                          The headphone seems durable.
                          I don't like the positioning of the top cushion in relation to the earcups. It's set. One cannot adjust the angle of the earcups other than to roll the entire headset, and then because of the specified ear shape, the rotation makes the earcups fit less well if not uncomfortably.

                            I'm an up and coming music producer who's been using Panasonic CD player head phones or listening through a bass amplifier, and using these headphones is ten times better. I can hear all the tones I need to, and wear these for hours. The comfortableness is outstanding, especially with the ear cups being attached to swivels, allowing rotation. They seem fairly well constructed, but I wouldn't stuff them in a backpack for a trip.The cord is a great length with no signs of wearing down any time soon. Listening with these headphones, I can actually hear what music is supposed to sound like-- every note is audible. I give these five stars.

                              I use these for editing audio for videos and as a second pair for listening to music on my laptop. The sound is clean overall, a little sterile at times for music but great overall for pretty much everything. One thing that can be either pro/con is the cord is very long. If you want to walk around with these outside, make sure you have a place to put it if you want to use these as portable headphones. For music only, I still just use a pair of Grado SR60's.

                              Comments about Sennheiser HD 429 Around-Ear Stereo Headphones:

                              I had an old pair of headphones and wanted to update to a better sound and fit. These are light-weight and have a great sound. One comment I read before buying them said they were too tight. My hat size is extra large and these fit snug but are not too tight for me. Snug is good. For my surroundings, they provide a good ambient noise cancellation. I thought I would buy Sennheiser's over trying to pick a different brand because of their excellent reputation. In my opinion, Sennheiser has earned their reputation. I use them mostly for monitoring a high end electronic drumset. The drumset has an audio in so I can mix in an audio file (song) which also sounds great. The headphones give me a nice crisp sound and the bass response has plenty of punch without that artificial boom of some headsets I've tried. I can wear them for hours without any discomfort. There are less and more expensive headphones but I think these are a great choice if you're looking for high quality for a fair price.

                                I originally got these headphones to edit videos with. After hearing what they are capable of, I have been constantly using them to listen to music. They have great bass. They don't hurt your ears after an extended amount of time wearing them. I wore them for about 5 hours while editing a video. After I took them off, my ears didn't hurt. They're very comfortable. For the price, they are very much worth it!
