Sennheiser HD414


Pros: great sound good price and built to last

Cons: pads need replacing quite often

I must say that i have yet to find a better sounding pair of headphones in this price range and i have try ed many! I still find then very comfortable and in all these years they have not broken although the ear pads need replacing quite often,otherwise all the parts are original.

Over the years i have brought a number of headphones but when they break or fail i always find myself going back to my old Sinnheiser HD 414s.

Can't say more then that their just great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1



Pros: Comfort, sound quality, durability

Cons: impedance

I bought my HD414s in 1973 and they still work great! I've replaced the foam ear pads many times, Sennheiser still sells them. I also replaced the cord with a 1/8" mini plug. Bass response is not as good as an over the ear phone, but it's great for an open ear set. The high impedance makes it difficult to get enough sound pressure, in my opinion, unless you have a dedicated headphone amp.

Sennheiser HD414
