HD 419 vs HD 202 Sennheiser

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I currently have some Bose headphones and I want to get a cheaper alternative pair of headphones. I like bass, I am a bass head :D . I have been looking the Hd 202 and HD 419. I have heard the 202's today in HMV and I must say I am very impressed. I had no intention of buying a new pair of headphones until I heard those. Bass was as good as beats and the mids and treble were ok. I just saw the HD 419 and they look and seem a bit better. They are only £10 more too. Which should I go for? I listen to House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass. Also do headphones need burn in?

Thanks all :)

I bought a pair of HD 419, I hope they are good. If you would like to add a personal opinion of the product please still do so. They will arrive 3-5 days. Also someone please answer my question about burn-in. Thanks, and sorry for the double post.

Burn-in is mostly the human brain. 

I've not noticed a thing different with my headphones from day one to now. Even when I got a pair of headphones for a friend (and opened them), I couldn't tell a difference from my pair that had over 100 hours of use.

So, in my opinion, burn-in does not exist.

Hey Stewie,

 

Good decision on the 419's.  I own a pair of the 419s and find them to not only be very comfortable, but also decent sound quality as well.  I've tried a pair of 202's briefly and wasn't too impressed with them.  The 419's pretty much beat them out clear in every category. 

 

You can rest at ease my friend, you made the right decision =]

Would you recommend them over 202's for bass?
