I decided to buy Sennheiser On-Ear Headphones, after doing my research, reading reviews, and comparing technical specifications. I made the best decision. The sound quality is amazing, natural, not bass enhanced, one can listen to music the way artists have intended us to hear it. Despite the size of the headphones, the phone's battery is not drained fast. Better than Bose or Beats. The new headphones feel tight, but after I streched the steel band, and left them overnight wrapped over the case, I can wear them for hours withour any pain. The remote should support Android devices. If it is not technically possible to use the same cable for Apple and Android, at least customers should have the option to choose a different cable for Android. Otherwise the headphones are perfect.
Headphones are designed to fit the widest percentage of the general population however every person is different and some wearers may feel the headband of the headphones is initially too loose.
A common trick to make the headband of headphones tighter is to place the headphones over something (like a stack of books) that is slightly smaller than the headphones currently are and then wrap the headphones with a cord or elastic band to squeeze the headphones inwards to make them tighter. The purpose of the object between the headphones is to ensure that the headphones are not squeezed too tightly as you don't want the headband to crack. NOTE: The headphones may need to be left in this position for a day or two or the process may need to be repeated a few times until the desired headband tightness is reached.
With Sennheiser headphones the audio will always be accurate and responsive and is sure to please no matter what situation you need it for.
An open (sometimes referred to as "open aire" headphone is one that uses some external airspace to reproduce life-like audio within the ear-cup. Think of it as having premium speakers next to your ears that you can control the volume for with extreme precision. The trade-off is that at extreme volumes some sound will leak out. Some of our "open aire" models include the HD 800, HD 700, HD 650, HD 600, HD 598, HD 558 and HD 518.
A closed headphone isolates you from your environment and vice-versa (ie: the sound is contained within the headphones). This is perfect for critical listening or a situation where you do not want to disturb/be disturbed. Some of our "closed" models include the MOMENTUM, Urbanite XL, HD 380 PRO, HD 280 PRO, HD 449 and HD 439.
