Sennheiser HD229

  • Sound Quality

After first hand experience with the Sennheiser HD229, it is my opinion that this product does not measure up to other audio headphones in the same price class. First and foremost is the volume. In use with my tablet, there does not appear to be much more volume than the actual internal speakers that are built into the unit. Secondly comes the comfort level of this particular model. Too much adjusting is required in achieve the right fit. I probably would not recommend this product over other manufacturers models priced in the same range.

Pros: Has cool look for younger users.

Cons: Lacks volume. Does not have comfort feel.
