Bose AE2 vs. Sennheiser HD429 vs. Monster Beats Solo - Page 2

post #16 of 17

There are very few headphones that contain the sound completely. Usually when you hear a mini-disco from across the room, despite them using closed headphone, it's because someone is listening at ear-bleeding volumes. 

Better to just turn the volume down and enjoy the music for many more years instead of going deaf at 30. 


Also the 429 has a mostly balanced sound with a noticeable but tasteful bass emphasis which is enjoyable for low listening volumes.

After listening to the beats your gf will notice 2 things compared to the Senns:

 

a: omg where is the bass? Give it time and it will reappear.

b: oh I can hear much more of the rest of the song, like voices and highs clearly. If she has crappy sounding mp3s (low bit rate and/or low quality 90s mp3s), they will sound worse than with the beats. The beats muddiness and distortion hides bad quality mp3s. Even youtube on nonHD settings sounds "ok".
