If you want headphones, buy these

These are FANTASTIC! I had never owned headphones before and felt a bit apprehensive to splurge but I am so glad I did. The sound quality is fantastic, they are comfortable, noise cancelling is perfect. They fold really easily to pack away too. Bluetooth is the best feature - connects to my phone or laptop in a flash but comes with cord as well. Battery lasts a very long time. I recommend this for music lovers, TV watchers, and those who meditate.

Amazing audio quality

I have had these headphones for about four months now and I have never had a better audio experience with any other set of headphones I have owned(I have previously owned Bose and JBL headphones) and they were by far the cheapest headphones I have owned. The noise-cancelling doesn't compare to bose but I found that it was enough for me to have a really enjoyable listening experience. The headphones took a little bit to wear in but I can have them on for hours now and feel no discomfort at all. Show details

So so headphone

I bought this from the good guys in $169m (but then JB Hi-Fi was selling in $149), so you get a point when someone selling something cheap, it is not worth to buy but it's ok

Pros:
- great design
- big cushion and area to fit on big ears

Cons:
- when attending calls, can hear other noise clearly around you
- lots of buttons
- bass is not good

Overall, if you are not much concerned on sound quality and that mic issue, this is alright to buy otherwise look for other brands. Show details

Impossible to fit replacement earpads!

Only a demented lunatic with anti-social tendencies could have designed how the earpads attach to the headphones! I have two pairs of these headphones and the earpads in both have fallen apart. Trying to get new pads on is an exercise in absolute frustration, with lots of swearing and an immensely strong temptation to just run my car over the bloody things. What a waste of money! Show details

Update: In sheer frustration I threw the damn things on the concrete floor and broke them. Last pair of Sennheisers I ever buy, and I've had quite a few of them over the years.

Painful

Very small earpads that cause pain and ruin the listening experience. Everything else is okay and perhaps if you have smaller ears these will fit you fine but they caused me great discomfort, very painful on the ears. Show details

Just one really really annoying feature

The sound quality is great and mic is really good and clear.

Just one super annoying feature, is when it reaches 1/2 battery, there is voice that says 6-12 hours of battery left... non stop... PLEASE make it stop. I just need to know ONCE! Over the course of 2 hours it repeats every 5 mins. I just want to throw the headphones out.

Hopefully I can get a firmware update pushed to my device. If not I need to return this product. OMG No idea how annoying this is. Show details

Good as backup

Bought these as a backup to my Beats Solo 3. As far as comfort, the difference is the sizing of the ear muffs, these are larger, so go over the complete ear. They are comfortable and can wear for long periods of time. I had to refer to online assistance in order to pair with my phone. Pairing was instant there on. With the added noise canceling, there is no background noise to be concerned with. Not designed to use whilst not aware of surroundings. Need to be aware of surroundings, as silly as this may be, will make a note of this. The battery life is less than the Beats, but but do last a while.
Can be used with phone using the supplied cord. Show details

Very dissatisfied absolute rubbish

Build quality is ok but the rest is rubbish. Very uncomfortable, the noise cancelling is crap, you get continuous annoying beeps, the sound quality is the worst I’ve experienced, very tinny with no bass or depth, the Captune app is required but it isn’t available in Australia???..why sell them in Australia if you cannot use them properly. They are $360 headphones which I got from JB HIFI on special for 1/2 price, but still they are just rubbish. My kids $60 wireless cheap brand headphones are better than these. Show details

Good but..... not over ear

The sound is good. The sound muffling is pretty good before you turn them on. Turn on the noise canceling and you do get a lot of external base interference removed. You do still hear the higher pitches but muffled. The main problem is they are not over ear. I had to rotate the pads and massage them to a rounder shape so my ears would fit in. My ears get sore after a while. May improve as I wear them in. I would recommend downloading the operating instructions. The ones in the box are terrible. Bought them on sale from The Good Guys. Show details

Great all around headphones

I bought the product during JBHiFi promotion and the price was reduced to more than 50%. For that value, it was one of the best headphones you can buy. Sound quality is above average - some people are comparing this to Bose headphones, but to me Bose has more sound quality to it. It is light weight, comfortable enough to wear it while jogging. connect it to my iphone x and/or apple watch 4th gen, during 2km run, a few drop out happened, not sure why but when online, it continues where it left off. Controls a bit pain, but overall it's great. in the end of the day, you are not controlling it from the headphone itself. Battery life is over the top, haven't had any incident where the headphones run out of juice. I'm happy with the purchase. Show details

The sound is excellent for both music and calls

I use the 4.40 version of these for listening to music and also taking calls on my softphone and mobile. Excellent audio quality and the handsfree is great. I use them when I visit the datacentre to talk to support teams and they can hear me fine and I can hear them clear as a bell. I also use them when using power tools to listen to music and muffle the sound and they do all these jobs with no problems. Absolutely love em. You do need music or phone call playing to really cancel the noise. Show details

Questions & Answers

Hello, I have a pair of Sennheiser HD4.50BTNC ear phones that I have used for air travel for a couple of years, no problems with the sound quality etc. However, the earphone pads (dreaded plastic!) are starting to degrade. Where can I buy proper replacement covers that will actually fit? All I can find is the usual culprits (Amazon et al) but these are not genuine, so don't want to buy the wrong stuff to just end up in the bin. Has anyone got any good suggestions of where to purchase good quality covers that will fit (don't care if they are not genuine, just want ones that fit and don't take a day to install). (in Australia!) Thank you
