Sennheiser HD 4.20s Around-Ear Closed Back Headphones – Black, Good sound, comfortable to wear

Purchased as a reward for my daughter- she’s impressed with the sound top quality.

Superior points – audio top quality is superior. Undesirable factors – the headband is inflexible and the wire is much too small to access p.

Sennheiser HD 4.20s Around-Ear Closed Back Headphones – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Closed-back design and ergonomic earpads reduce background noise and provide
    immersive detail
  • Integrated 1-button smart remote with in-line microphone for push to talk functionality and music playback.
  • Handy single-sided tangle free cable
  • Soft, comfortable ear pads for enhanced comfort- you will forget that you are wearing them!
  • Sound pressure level (SPL)-118dB (1kHz/1Vrms)

Extremely good products and content making use of it.

Some noise cancelling for external appears.

Neutral audio which i like, fairly than bass hefty. Excellent for commuting but they absence a big soundstage so not best for static use if you are at dwelling and so on.

Sennheiser HD 4.20s Around-Ear Closed Back Headphones – Black : The first thing i noticed about these is that the audio cable comes out of the right hand side, unlike every other pair of headphones i’ve had where it comes out of the left. As they look very symmetrical, this has caused me to inadvertently put them on the wrong way round on a few occasions, although it’s hard to notice this if you’re listening to pop music. The cable cannot be switched to the other side, which i thought would be annoying given that the thing i plug it into is usually on my left, but the cable doesn’t seem to get in the way of eating or anything like that. The audio cable is also a bit shorter than the average headset, but that suits me just fine, as i hate having too much excess cable flowing all over my desk and it makes them easier to use on the go. In terms of comfort, these are really nice. The ear pads look a bit small, but they are so incredibly plush that i can’t feel any discomfort at all, unlike some other headphones where it feels like your ears are being squashed against your head. These are without a doubt the nicest ear pads i’ve come across – they are so soft and have a lot of travel. They also form a very effective seal against background noise without requiring any active noise cancellation. This is so effective that it took me a few days to get used to them, as the reduced ambient noise gives a kind of underwater sensation, where noises inside your own body (swallowing, coughing, etc) seem noticeably louder. Once you get used to this, it no longer becomes noticeable and you really appreciate how much background noise they cut out.

Nice headphones, that do a satisfactory job for the non-professional. I was surprised to see that they had been sold at 1/3 of the current price a year ago though. What’s changed to make them now so expensive. At this price, they’re not worth the money.

Fantastic product, very comfortable, even for a couple of hours at a time (and i have a big head), brilliant sound.

These headphones feel rather flimsy and the sound from them is distinctly average, lacking in bass.

Excellent sound and very comfortable, plus the ear pieces fold up making them quite compact for storage. Certainly the right choice for me.

Comfortable on my head, good bass and mid-range though the top end is a little muted. One thing i have to point out is they don’t seem very efficient and i have to turn the volume up higher to get a satisfactory level, compared to my old akg phones anyway (left channel stopped working on those). I paid under £40 so i would say they are very good value for money.

For the price these have a really great sound, plenty of bass without being overwhelming and a lot of detail for this price range. They are very comfortable and are nice and light. The only negatives i would say is that they are not the prettiest of headphones, the lead is ever so slightly too long for me and the construction seems a little flimsy. I guess they had to compromise at this price and it’s on the construction rather than sound quality they’ve perhaps skimped on.

They’re good quality and build, much lighter than i thought intially from the picture, these also sit well over the ears. The item arrived on time and was fast.

My son recommended this product, i use them to listen on my roberts retro radio and on my mac os and i pad. I may not use the microphone facility but thought it handy to have for the future.

Neutral sound which i prefer, rather than bass heavy. Perfect for commuting but they lack a large soundstage so not ideal for static use if you are at home etc.

They sound great, however not so comfortable. Perhaps i have slightly bigger-than-average ears & head or simply the fact i wear glasses make them hurt my ears after around 45 minutes of constant use. Please note, that the actual ear pieces only slide up & down (not like most headphones where you can adjust the height of the overhead part) which is bit strange & i can bet it makes them slightly tighter than my previous, similarly looking headphones. It’s hard to judge really, but they might be okay for 90% of population nevertheless. For me, personally, i might need to replace these in near future – and check them in-store before buying.

These fit over the ear – perfect for someone like me who has over 14 ear piercings. 30g but i resented the fact that sennheiser charged £20 more for the android version than the i-phone one (4. It can’t control volume when taking a call, but whatever. I work in an open plan office and the passive noise cancellation does a better job at blocking out people talking than my cheap in-earphones did – i can listen to music at a low volume and not hear people, whereas before i was listening to music loudly to block the external noise (not good for ears). The cushions are soft, and the top of the curve has enough padding. The bass isn’t overly loud – i specifically didn’t want one of those awful xtra bass ones. I’m happy with my product on day 2. My main negative is that i think it would have been nice for it to come with a little soft case – i’m going to have to buy something to transport it in for sure.

Really glad i shelled out and bought these. I really like having a mic, and that they’re foldable, and the sound is great. If i play it too loud i’m pretty sure people around me hear it but i don’t mind too much.

I use this set with a lap top computer, and consider the sound quality exceptional, even for the price. The foam ear covers press firmly over the ears, providing a immersive auditory experience. I can’t imagine more expensive head sets being demonstrably better.

Lightweight, decent sound, single sided cable and a reasonable price.

Superb headphones, easy and light to wear with good sound reproduction. My last pair of similar sennheiser headphones lasted over 20 years before the padding disintergrated hoping these will last as long.

Most comfortable and stylish headphones i have ever owned. I could never fall asleep with previous headphones on, but these are cushioned so nicely. Even underneath that thin head band so i can just drift off with ease. Have no complaints with the sound quality either, and the folding is a nice feature. Build quality seems really solid as well, and the cable is a nice length i think [perfect length for listing to your phone in pocket] i found headphone cables to be annoyingly long in the past, but bare that in mind if you want a long cable for x reason.

I am very pleased with this purchase. They are very comfortable and sit well on my ears. They are light and just the right pressure. Would highly recommend them.
