The best gift your ear can get...HD 419
By Manoj Clarenceon
Its finally here... I was dying to get my hands on a sennheiser and the wish got fulfilled with the HD 419, and the best part was flipkart delivered it to me in a very short time, to make me even more happier,this is for some one who wants to play with the big boys, at a very nominal cost(well I felt that way), the sheer joy of bass and overall quality difference in sound quality makes you wonder where these were all these days?, flac and 320kbps did not seem to differ but flac audio's did sound complete and better balanced, games were awesome, movies were just about ok on 5.1 (1080p video), but hd 419 delivers where it matters which is audio songs , hip -hop and Bollywood sounded awesome , rock not so great, bass is punchy and feels awesome. Design and comfort is top notch, I would recommend it for medium to long term listening. Gamers and heavy metal fans might opt for a better version(again can be debated). on the down side, cable size seems very slim and gives you a scare factor as to when it might pop(common concern among all users), all in all super buy
Better and lighter with noise-reduction capabilities
By Anandasubramanian CPon
I had a Sennheiser HD 203 for more than 2 years. I broke it recently.
I tried out other brands, like Sony and even Bose, before settling on Sennheiser HD 419 again.
1) Extremely light weight. Surprised.
2) No jarring or high treble (like sony). Smooth, excellent raw sound. Even the smallest sounds in the Age of Mythology sound track can be heard.
3) Smaller single cable, so no messy long cables.
4) Offers noise-reduction capabilities without the "vaccuuming" sense of a Bose.
1) The cable is much thinner than in HD 203.
2) Easier to confuse Left and Right speakers. Label is hard to read.
Just One Word- WOW!!
By Sunil CBon
I ordered Senheisser HD 419 last month and got it within a couple of days..thanks to flipkart for getting this fabulous product before the expected time!
coming to the review..what to say.. it is just a mind-blowing headphone I've ever used in my entire life. I've used JBL , skullcandy and many others but this one is a class apart! stylish making pretty noise cancellation features and more importantly it is comfortable to wear. i am using this product daily around 4 hours and it doesn't get heated or it wont cause any pain to your ears.
PROS AND CONS
#1 Cost: This is the best one you can get for a reasonable rate
#2. excellent audio quality and noise cancellation technique
#3. Punchy Bass and crystal clear quality
#4. 2 years warranty
#5. less weight and comfortable to wear and carry around
i've been using this for a month to find out the negatives hardly found nothing . but still i have some suggestions
The cables are not that much strong while compared to other headphones. they are thin and may break if not handled properly. if you are a hard user of headphone products don't buy it! you have to be careful while handling this product.
this is the only negative I've found so far and i'm reducing a 0.5 rating. overall rating would be 4.5/5. Go for it!
want to use for a looooooooooooong time
the best the best...i got this product long back when it was rs 3500 on flipkart ..jusst by checking reviews i ordered it...i must tell u i couldn have done better ...i compared it with beats nfl limited edition head phone and also with SMS vby 50 cent ..let me tell you one thing i found senhieser hd 419 better ..those headphones are 20k each...and heavy looks also bad..only the brand name//.. go for it if u want a product to be with u for a loong time.....thank you
HD 419... of the audiophiles, by the audiophiles, for the audiophiles!!
By Anit Basu Thakuron
My dad bought this headphones from Flipkart at a price of 2499, considering the MRP on which the product is sold in he market. After using the headphones , all I can say is this is a very good headphone at a great price point- bang for the buck.
First i checked the build quality. The plastics used is good. Cups have adequate foaming, Headband is flexible and also has foaming. The cups have a good matte finish feel. But, the headphones lacked complete swivel and foldability and the package did not include a pouch or case to keep it. That was little disappointing considering the price. Also the headphone cord is sufficiently long, but is pretty thin. So handling the headphone cord with care is a must to avoid cutting the wire.
Second , the sound quality on the offer
For the testing i used different genres of songs with various sound format and quality. I listened to tracks from Scorpions, Guns and Roses, Linkin Park, Dire Straits, Queen, David Guetta, Krewella, Edward Maya, Akcent, Akon and some bollywood numbers. They varied from 160 to 320 kbps mp3, FLAC, WAV, and also directly from audio cds.
The headphone is a real pleasure to use to, the sound produced by the HD 419 is perfectly balanced. Acoustics is very good, Bass response is also good, Highs and lows are clearly audible and treble is also good.But, this headphones are not recommended for bassheads. One can differentiate every type of instrument which is played in the song. The noise isolation is also decent. I have used this with my smartphone and as of now, I have found no con regarding the sound quality.
The headphones are probably the most comfortable ones which i have used till date. I listened to songs for 3 hours straight and i absolutely had no problem of feeling heavy headed.
But, using different sources, i found out that the best sound response is from cds and wav, flac format. If you want similar response with mp3 or from a smartphone, i would recomend using a Fiio E11 amplifier paired with this one.
If you cannot afford an external amp for this , i would recommend to use 320 kbps mp3 files for near similar sound reproduction as that of audio CDs. After long hours of usage, the ears will start to sweat. So i would recommend this headphones to be used indoor and not to be used while travelling.
Overall, this is a very good pair of headphones and i would highly recommend this to those who are looking to immerse themselves into some good music and breakaway from the diminished sounds of cheap earphones.
Bang on and get it- Amazing Product from Sennheiser
An Amazing product by Sennheiser. Only pros and still waiting to get any cons to be noticed!!!....and I am sure I won't get any (3rd month running).1. True Bass and awesome sound quality. If you are a instrumental/ Indian classical/fusion lover, then you will definitely like it.2. Now what additional I've noticed is the sound quality/clarity and bass with an Mp3 player ( just amazing ). Usually other headphones doesn't give the desired output with a battery operated player. But I am amazed with its performance.3. Quite a long wire and gold plated P2P jack.4. Over the ears and it doesn't hurt even after watching a full length movie.5. With few good quality songs, you will get 3D sound effect.6. Got this for 2.65 k and fully satisfied with Amazon's quick and quality delivery.#Note :- Once you purchase Sennheiser products do register at there website and get your product verified ( QR Code on the box).
Excellent headphones.Trust it with close eyes.
By Rahul borkaron
Awesome headphones.1:These headphones are very good and sound quality is excellent.2:It gives filter sound of each and every instrument.Sound quality is very pure.3:I also have HD 408 . Compare to it HD 419 have little less volume and bass . HD 408 is little rocking type of headphone but its sound quality is not such good as compare to HD 419.HD 408 is also nice headphones but it dose not give you instrumental sound in filter way as HD 419.4:Look wise this head phone is good.5:Wire is thin.6:No pain on ears.7:Now come to its price. This head phone at Rs2700 is very costly. According to me its price at the most Rs 2000.
good product horriblle seller
By Geeta anandon
The seller shipped me an old product.( manufactured in april 2012).There wasnt any sort of protection for my product. The outer case was totally scratched out(even cracked from the bottom).headphones had a some little scuff marks on them(No biggie)Thats why the two starsAside from the packaging and care taken while shipping it, the headphones are good.Since I wa using jbl tempo jo3b headphones earlier I found the sound a little dull and quite. A little burn in did the trick. The headphones are very comfortable. The pads can get dirty quickly(pets hair and dust might get stuck on it). Since its an over the ear headphones it does reduce the surrounding noise slightly. The cable is on the shorter side.Overall a good headphone. Maybe if you are willing to spend a bit more you can get better ones but I like these quite a lot
Absolute value for money
Unbelievable. These are the best headphones and can compete with any 15 K headphones. Amazing clarity. Light weight. I just bought Sony 1000x just fir wireless and noise cancellation else am very happy with sennheisers. Still using them at home.
High on sound quality - Low on volume
By Nitish R.on
Pros:1. very very comfortable2. awesome bass3. nice sound qualityCons:1. volume (sound quantity) is not much when compared to intex or iball headphones, at time you feel like increasing the volume but its already full.2. stereo jack (connector) is big in length, makes it difficult to fit in the pocket when used with 5 or 6 inch smartphones. An L shape connector would have been better.
